    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.

Video card upgrading issues


Once the Video card is inserted the motherboard, it automatically selects the video card and at the BIOS settings just select the one with an AGP selection, then boot up the computer. Install the driver that comes with the video card. It might also ask you to restart... just select Ok then its done.

Are there any video cards that you can use to upgrade the 530g? I have seen posts that the power supply is an issue. If it is possible is it a matter of installing the card and disabling the onboard...


Your pc has a special graphics expansion port - AGP x8

You can insert any graphics cards which will fit the port. Check carefully, there are quite a few different types of graphics port.

Once inserted, boot up the PC, and insert the disk you should get with the card, it will have all the relevant drivers.

There should be no need to alter the bios settings, the new card will be identified by the boot process.

If power supply does become an issue, you will need to upgrade the PSU (Power Supply Unit).

Most home user PC's of the last while now have onboard video cards so you would need a new motherboard if the video card were bad. Good news it it's likely that the system's drivers just failed. If you boot to safe mode with networking support you know it's just drivers. When booting with networking support you can find a new driver for your video card or even simply remove the video card from the device manager and reboot. Sometimes the latter works, as just a single file was corrupt and needed to be recopied. If this doesn't work you can start looking at the RAM (since thats technically your video memory). It can be as simple as a bad connection so you can just blow the slots out w/ an air compressor (canned air is too weak) and reseat the RAM. Otherwise test your RAM in someone else's system or get some RAM and try booting. Last of course is the motherboard which hopefully isn't the case for you.

Dell Dimension 5100 won't start with new FireMV 2400 PCI Express video card


Did you check to make sure the video card is installed in the right spot? Has the onboard video card been disabled in Windows - and when you say it will not boot, do you mean physically no POST. Do you get any error codes? If you can get into the CMOS (Bios) Setup screen - change the primary display adapter from the onboard to AGP, PCI, or PCI-E depending on which card that is. Use this information at your own risk - hope it helps.

Hi, uninstalling the onboard video will only be reinstalled by Windows next time you boot up. Disabling it in the Device Manager might and mght not do the trick if your mb is set on using the onboard. You might want to try and disable the onboard video in the CMOS/BIOS set-up. In some instances, you are asked in the BIOS what video will be used such as onboard, AGP or PCI or a selection of something like that. Also you can try and not allocating any memory to the onboard video. Hope this be of some help. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck.
