How to disable onboard (Nivida 6100) video on a Acer Aspire E380 so I can install a EVGA 8800GTS and 650w PS.

    Both responses were correct - after replacing the power supply with a 650W/ 50A one (the E380 is just 250w/12a) and the Nvidia 8800 requires 36A. I just installed the EVGA Nvidia 8800 GTS, Hooked up the external power connector and the Acer BIOS switched 'auto-magicly' to PCIE. My new video setup rocks and my Vista score is now 5.0 with a video score of 5.9.



    Thanks!

Greetings!
I've been installing video card on a computer with an onboard video. Once I installed a video card in your computer automatically the onboard will be ignore, the computer will read the video card.
Hope that will solve your problem
Thanks.

Shane,

First Connect your Monitor cable to the onboard connector.

Then boot your PC
After the Acer logo disappears press <Delete> on your keyboard to enter BIOS
From there you should be able to find the option to change the default Videocard to PCIE

press <F10> to save and exit
Shutdown PC
Switch Cable to Nvidia 8800GT and reboot
You should now be able to finish installing your new Vid Card

Hope this helps
Dave

You don't disable it from there. Reenable it again and do it right: you uninstall its drivers from Programs and you reboot twice; you install the new card and you connect the monitor to it; when the pc starts you go directly in the BIOS and you disable the onboard card from there; you reboot one more time and you install the drivers for the new card.

Hey in the control panel, go to the mouse, then look for the properties that have a PS/2 compatible mouse, you can change its settings there by sellecting other compatible mouse instead of PS/2, and also there is a settings or a check box that says the onboard mouse of your laptop will be disable if a usb mouse will be pluged.hope it soved your problem, :)

Monitor wont work


You were not very clear with your question. If you mean you have disabled your onboard video, then installed the new video card and get nothing then the card is not compatible with your system OR you got a bad card. If you mean you simply installed the card, turn on your computer and get nothing until you move your monitor plug back to the original port (without turning off the computer) then you must disable your onboard video by going into your BIOS settings. Follow the instructions that came with your video card or your computer to do that. Usually you get in by pressing delete or F2 while the computer boots.

Need to disable onboard video to allow vga board to work.


You should be able to disable the onboard video in bios.

Boot up the computer, and you should be able to press {Del} and the computer should load the bios setup program. My Acer is currently out for repair, but I believe the main menu will say something like "integrated peripherals," and from the submenu you should be able to disable the onboard video.

Thank you for your question, and please let me know if there's anything else I can help with.

Are You sure the graphics card is not defect?
When I installed a graphics card instead of the onboard
circuit, the SIS Mirage was disabeled automatically.
I have installation CD for the graphics, of course.
Also, I thought that disabeling devices could be done
through the control panel, "hardware devices".
