Re: do I need to turn off mother board video to add a...
Generally it automativll detect the PCI card you do not need to do so if at all you need to disable the onboard graphic you will have to do it from the bios if you have video card it has its own memory you do need to share with you system

The video is out.If you have a video card,replace it.For now you can run graphics off the mother board.To do that.Turn the computer off and unplug the power.Look on the back of the machine find where the monitor is connected.There are two places to connect a monitor.The first is kinda high on the machine and is blue,if you are already plugged in to the blue one the mother board is bad.Take it to a shop for repair,or buy a new computer.If the monitor is plugged into the white slot you have a bad graphics card and need to replace it.
Your board has ATI integerated graphics, no need to remove. You would upgrade by adding a PCIe express card in slot. Do you have such a card? If you need installation instructions, let me know at "add a comment"
If your VGA lead plugs into the motherboard, where the cluster of connectors are, you probably have on board graphics which means essentially it is built onto the mother board and is not physically removeable but if you fit a better quality display board, you can turn the onboard graphics off. Hope that helps
Hi, Most likely what you will want to do is just turn your resolution down to it's lowest settings. and turn off unplug the computer and install the card. Plug the monitor into the card and then boot up the computer. Sometimes depending on the computer you may have to disable the onboard video in the bios but a lot of times you don't. If you do run into an issue you can unplug the card hook the monitor back up the onboard video, then if need be disable the onboard driver, by going to control panel, then system properties, then device manager and then under video adapter disable the drivers for the onboard video but it shouldn't be necessary. Thank you, Lee
Looks like your PC has PCI Express slots, one x16 and x1. So you can get a new PCI Express video card which should improve overall performance, especially gaming. It will also free up some system memory that has been shared with your on-board video. You'll have to go to BIOS and change the "Initial Display" setting and/or turn off the on-board video. I'm using the ATI Radeon HD 4350 and have no complaints.
check on device manager, click on start then right click on your MY COMPUTER icon in the start menu and then click on MANAGE. now click on DEVICE MANAGER and double click on the DISPLAY ADAPTERS to see your graphic/video card name.
Have you tried adding the card and see if it defaults to the card rather than the onboard video? Many BIOS are set that way by default.
Go into your BIOS and look at the onboard devices. It is preferable to tell your BIOS to first look for an add-in card and default back to onboard if you don't find one. But you can disable your onboard video, then save and reboot.
This card seems to use a AGP or (Accelerated Graphics Port / Advanced Graphics Port). So *********** board has to have this type of slot in it. This is a graphics only port so only a graphic card can be in it. What type of mother board do you have?
