    Thanks - in windows - as I can see the screen as the unit is using the AGP card, there is only 1 device. The on board Video port is not shown as its not being used by the monitor. My problem is only on a truely cold boot. If I shut off the unit and restart it works fine. If I let it sit over night, the true cold boot Power on self test goes to the on board card and uses it instead of the AGP card. To make matters worse the BIOS does not have a turn off on board or turn on AGP. According to Sony support they do not support AGP but the motherboard has a dedicated slot .

I'm not exactly sure what you are explaining but to disable in Windows go to: My computer: Properties: Hardware: Device Mgr: Graphics Card and for the one listed that is not your AGP card click: Disable This Device. It's just that simple. Also, in some BIOS,maybe all, there is an AGP: enable/disable box. This of course should be enabled.

AMD Motherboard with, on board video card has voltage short no video available on monitor. I would like to disable and add a AGP card.


When the Computer is off install the AGP card and put it together next start the computer when it starts up hit Del key before it boots up go into bios go to devices and disable onboard video, then hit F10 say yes to save changes and reboot it will then detect the card and will ask for drivers for the card. Be sure you read the directions for the video card You may have to install the drivers first, since you did not mention the card brand names and what mother board you have. Asus has many mother boards.

Im trying to install agp...how do i disable the on board vga


Hi there.
Remember that if you are swapping from on-board graphics to a card you have to go into the BIOS and tell the machine that the primary graphics adapter is AGP/PCI Express.
Plug the VGA cable into the on-board graphics port, start the computer and enter the BIOS, tell the computer to use the AGP/PCI card as primary, press F10, save the changes and exit the bios.
The computer will try and restart so let it boot to post and turn it off, then put in your card and try to boot again.
Please post back if you need more help or advice.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Video card makes system unstable


Hi Wayne, it's rule of thumb to always uninstall the old software from add/remove programs before installing the newer software drivers. The reason for this uninstall is so the two programs do not over-write files with the same name.
The ASUS P4S800-MX motherboard does have an onboard graphics card, (SiS Real256E). If you added another video card into the AGP slot & did not disable the onboard graphics, than you're AGP card will not run correctly. (I'm suprised it even loaded)!
Please read page 2-19 in you're motherboard manual to help fine tune the bios when using an AGP video card. Than go to page 2-21 & than set, Primary VGA bios to; [AGP,VGA Card]. Save & exit. The PC will restart.
Press & hold the power on button on the case. This will power off the system. Unplug the power cord from the power supply. Insert you're AGP card & make sure it is fully seated. Close the case & plug in the power cord. Boot up the system. Uninstall any other software you did install for the AGP card. Retsart the PC after uninstall is complete. Install the latest software you downloaded for the AGP card. Restart after install is complete.
Lastly, run windows update service & choose ustom, not express. Check for hardware & software updates. You're system should function much better & when you check the system properties you will find you have more system memory. This is because the onboard video used you're system memory to run.

Good luck Wayne!

Videocard wont work


Hi jazzcowboy,

Your Asus P4GE-V uses an intergrated graphics card.
Onboard VGA [Auto] Page 4-22. User manual.

If the bios is set to Enabled, the onboard VGA is enabled.
When you add an AGP card your bios will not see it.
You must change the bios setting to [Auto] so the system will see your AGP video card.
To download your manual for the Asus P4GE-V Click the link.

System doesn't see AGP card


Hello flaxx

I believe you'll need to find a way to disable your integrated (onboard) video in the BIOS. I know there isn't a direct way to do it but, please, see the next link. The user there found a way.

HERE is the way another user accomplished this task. (disabling onboard video). It concerns a different Asus motherboard but, I checked your motherboard manual, those same features are available.

HERE is the AsusTek forum for your motherboard. You can search and post here. There will be other users of that same board there that I'm sure will be able to help you.

HERE is your motherboard manual. However, I didn't see anything that particularly addressed disabling the onboard video.

Please, post back here w/ your results, questions, and any comments, etc.

Thank you

GeForce4 MX 420 Video Card


First question: Are you sure you have a PCI card?
there are several points here:
Make sure you have the monitor connected to the correct output on your computer. (In this case to the output of the graphics card, not to your onboard output)
If you have a PCI card set bios to PCI
Setting it to AGP means the computer is looking for a graphics card in you AGP-slot on you motherboard.

I cannot help thinking, that you actually have a AGP card in a AGP slot and that you computer is not working on onboard, but on AGP. But you can check which graphics device is used, in display properties (right-click Desktop, Properties, Settings)

Please post some feedback

ASUS Motherboard A7N266-VM


If you have another video card you can try (you can put an AGP card in there, it will disable the onboard video automatically), take that route first. If you can't, or it occurs with another card, it may be your power supply. It would help to know if your pc beeps when you turn it on, and how many - if any - beeps there are.
