Did you get a manual?

I need the manual to figure out how to disable the onboard graphics card.

    I have disabled it in the BIOS, and in Windows XP. I can get the new ASUS EAH4760 (ATI chip) card installed, recognized and working at the proper resolution. Then, when I shut down for the day and re-boot, when it passes the WinXP splashscreen, it goes to either an all-black screen or a black and blue vertical striped screen. I have to start all over, uninstalling and re-installing the cdrivers & card. My guess is that there is a conflict with the onboard graphics card. But maybe I am wrong. Is there a jumper or another way to completely disable it (the onboard ATI Xpress 200)?

    The graphics card was defective. Returned it and got a new one. Works fine. Thanks.

I think no need to disable onboard graphics if you install a VGA it will automatically as a default. but if you need so just goto cmos setup and try to search the onboard VGA and desasble it.

How do I disable my onboard graphics on my Acer Aspire T160? I want to add an HD 512MB pci express graphics card.


Hi,

You can disable the onboard VGA card in BIOS, to do so
keep on tapping F2 button as soon as you hit the power button, under the CMOS search for VGA or onboard VGA and click Disable.

Thanks

Unable to upgrade onboard graphics on dell gx520


Try disabling your onboard graphics in the BIOS. Some BIOS allow this. If you have a sound card, disable the onboard sound too. Count your beeps. they contain a code. Go online and "Google" bios codes. This should give you a starting point to diagnose the problem.

Installing New Graphics Card.How do you disable the onboard GC?


To disable the onboard graphics go into your CMOS settings and in there you should find something that says Graphics choices should be onboard or add on or some other form. It all depends on who made your BIOS. As far as a sound card not sure.

I have a hp presario SR5440AN and am trying to find out if i can use a pci express graphic card in it


Yes you can, if your computer has an AGP slot (advance graphic port) then it would be better to use a AGP graphics card instead on a PCI graphics card.
I can't remember if the Presario has an onboard graphics controller on the motherboard, if it has and you install a AGP or PCI graphics card, you may need to disable the onboard graphics controller in the BIOS.

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".
