During the initial boot sequence (as soon as you turn your PC on), try pressing <DEL> button (or F2 or F10 - you will see info on the bottom of the screen stating something like "Press _____ (del, F2, F10) to go to Setup..."

This will take you to BIOS, main setup panel for your PC.
There you can find and option for switching your main GFX card.
Options will be something like: onboard, pci, agp. You should choose
PCI.

Try doing this after you insert your new PCI gfx in your computer.


Good luck,

Milan

EliteGroup P4VMM2,
You'll need your manual to help guide you through the changes within your Bios.
No longer have your manual? Click the link below where you can download it;
http://www.ecsusa.com/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=46&CategoryID=1&DetailName=Manual&MenuID=45&LanID=9
You will need Adobe reader to view the manual. If you do not have Adobe
You can download it for free @; http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/
Enter your bios & go to page 33.
Open Advanced
Open (PCI / Plug and Play Setup Page) & set your Bios to the following settings:
Change the primary graphics adapter to [PCI]
Than set Shared memory size to [0] or disable
Allocate IRQ for PCI VGA. (Your PCI graphics card will need the IRQ).
It’s suggested to set (Plug and Play Aware O/S) to [No].
This allows the bios to set Irq’s rather than windows.
Save your changes & exit the bios. Your system will restart. Press & hold the power button on your case until the system shuts off. Unplug the power cord from the system.
Open your case & install your GeForce 6200 PCI graphics card.
(Double check all your connections before closing up the case).
Reconnect the power cord & boot the system. Install the 6200 driver software.

Good luck!
Mike

Setup dual-boot disks, one loads VGA instead of GeForce 6200


You should enter Bios setup when restarting and check that it says AGP or PCI for video display. You can then go to Start then Run and type in msconfig. Go through the list for the startup menu and make sure that NVIDIA is displayed with a checkmark.
When you installed the new driver, also make sure that you disabled the default VGA driver too. You may have to check that out. If both are running there will be conflict. Any questions, please don't hesitate.

HOW CAN I INSTALL A NVIDIA GEFORCE 7200GS ON A HP 500B DESKTOP PC. IT IS CONFLICTING WITH THE ON BOARD VGA, THIS IS PREVENTING ME FROM USING THE GEFORCE AS A SECONDARY DISPLAY WHICH THE REASON I BOUGHT IT


Hello,

It appears that you have spent real time and money to upgrade your system.

I understand your problem. You want dual output VGA's to have two monitors setup with your system. The computer, HP500 has an onboard VGA out, and your add-on PCI express will not give you a second out VGA.

More than likely, HP / Compaq might not support this configuration with thier CMOS>

Maybe better soloution would be since you already have a VGA and DVI video outputs from your new PCI express board would be to go into BOIS and disable your onboard VGA. The VGA should then revert to the new PCI express board. You then could connect the second monitor to have both on the PCI express board. If you have only VGA (blue type) connectors, you can get a DVI to VGA adapter.

At Newegg online or Tiger Direct should have them if needed for less than &10, plus S&H.

Good Luck

Hello,

I am presuming that the mainboard is an Asus model with integrated VGA.

In order to perform the following steps you may have to remove your new VGA board and reconnect your monitor to the mainboard VGA in order to have a display on your monitor.

If your new VGA board is an AGP or PCI express, connecting your monitor to the new VGA board should have been detected and applied the VGA output through the new board. If the new VGA board is a PCI type then go to the new steps to make changes to your CMOS via the BIOS settings.

If not the Asus mainboard may have to have the CMOS setup change through your BIOS settings.

Upon bootup you should be able to hit the delte key and the BIOS screen should come one.
Scroll down to the a view that will show "Onboard Settings" or similar wording.
Select and disable the Asus onboard VGA or video.

If problem still persist, then go to the Assus.Com web site for support on your model Asus mainboard for the maunual, or trouble shooting questions on settings.

Good Luck

When i install my video card the screen is blank


Use onboard graphics and enter the BIOS/CMOS by pressing the delete key during boot.

Go through the options, some-where there, there should be an option to enable PCI-Express slot, PEG when one is inserted. This need to be set.

So onboard VGA is disabled unless PCI-E Graphics card/PEG is inserted.

How do I disable vga on ga-8vm800m?


During boot press DEL to get into standard BIOS settings, while in standard BIOS hold CTL key and press F1 this will alow hidden features to show in BIOS. Enter into Integrated Peripherals and you should now see a entry called INIT DISPLAY FIRST and you should be able to select between PCI Onboard and AGP (Depending on what you have installed). I have the same motherboard and had also upgraded to the 6200 which works great after finding the hidden BIOS features.
Hope this does the trick for you!
