It is best to disable the onboard video electrically via a jumper or dip switch on your computers motherboard or in its system BIOS. Please refer to your computers user guide or contact your computer manufacturer for instruction on this process.
In the event that your system does not support the above, you may be able to disable the onboard video card in the operating system using the instructions below.
Make sure that the new PCI video card is not installed in your computer.

When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down.If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

My Sony laptops cooling fan making noise. at about one hour after I turned it on, turning off it self. how can I fix it


From your description I would be certain that the is a faulty fan and it is not cooling the CPU chip properly. When the CPU over heats the CPU shuts down (this is known as a thermal shutdown) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this fault is not fixed then eventually the CPU chip will fail.
Replace the faulty fan to fix this problem.

Fuzzy line going right down right side of Sony Laptop VGN-CS26g


The pixels inside of the LCD are going bad. Your screen is going to need to be replaced. When pixels in screens go bad it usually turns colors or gets fuzzy after it heats up.
