Depending on what type of computer you have there's several options but the easiest route would be this....
1) Turn your computer completely off and on. 2) When the computer is booting up look for "SETUP" or "ENTER SETUP" and press whatever key is required. (Doing this will take you into BIOS) 3) When you are in BIOS just look around for "Onboard Video:Enabled" and change it to "Disabled" 4) Save your settings and turn your computer off. 5) Install new video card.
Turn the computer off.
Remove the PCI-E video-card.
Boot the computer.
Press DEL to "enter BIOS setup".
Disable the "onboard video" adapter,
or set the highest video-priority to be the PCI-E slot.
Save settings, but do not "exit" from BIOS setup.
Turn the computer off.
Install the PCI-E video-card.
Disconnect the video-cable from the onboard VGA-port,
and connect the video-cable to the new video-card.
Turn the computer on, and the video-output through the new video-card should be displayed on your monitor.
Yes generally speaking when you drop in a videocard it typically will disable the built on one. You may have to disable it though. I know you said you did not see the onboard video in BIOS but there is almost always a setting in there to turn it off.
If you really want to disable the onboard video, right click on it in the display properties and select disable. However leaving it on really shouldn't be an issue.
Now the reason you are showing multiple instances of your nvidia card is because there is more than one monitor output on the back. You can hook up two monitors to the card and therefore it is showing up as multiple instances in your display properties. Again, this isn't an issue and is nothing to worry about.
2. When you install the new card, go into the bios first and disable onboard graphics (seems like theres isn't an option for that unfortunately, but check again anyway) choose "auto" if you have no "disable" feature.
3. If you have another pc, or a friend with another pc i would test the card on a different pc just to make sure its not a faulty card.
I assume you have switched the monitor cable in the back to your video card before booting up. Also you must disable the onboard video and driver too by Start----->Control Panel----->System----->Hardware----->Device Manager and make sure the driver for the onboard video is disabled. You have to also change the BIOS settings by rebooting and pressing F4, F1, F2 or F6 (varies on computers) Once in BIOS, you have to use the arrow keys, Esc and Enter to navigate. Goto the Video Display options and change the onboard video to your new card 256 MB. Collow on screen promts to save it and reboot again. Should work now.
That model server comes with onboard video.
If you wish to use a PCI video card then all you have to do is place it in the server and the BIOS will automatically disable the onboard.
If it currently has a PCI video card in it, just remove the PCI card and you should get the onboard video again.
Hope this 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.
