Ok i have a Biostar P4M80-M4 Motherboard and i can not get it to sense any graphic card i own pci or agp. i have been told that i must disable the onboard graphics first and it wont work, i have tried...

Disconnect the hard disk and reboot - wait for its absence to be detected then shut down the pc , reboot and go into the BIOS and make sure the AGP is enabled. Shut down the pc again, insert the new video card, connect the monitor to it then start the pc and go into the BIOS - now you should be able to disable the onboard one.
Connect the hard disk and you're good to go.

Im trying to install do i disable the on board vga

Hi there.
Remember that if you are swapping from on-board graphics to a card you have to go into the BIOS and tell the machine that the primary graphics adapter is AGP/PCI Express.
Plug the VGA cable into the on-board graphics port, start the computer and enter the BIOS, tell the computer to use the AGP/PCI card as primary, press F10, save the changes and exit the bios.
The computer will try and restart so let it boot to post and turn it off, then put in your card and try to boot again.
Please post back if you need more help or advice.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Installed a new Saphirre Radeon x1650 512mb, 128bit, AGP 8x card. But I am not seeing a significant increase over the onboard graphics. The card install sheet says to Disable the onboard video, but I don't...

In your BIOS on the main screen choose INTEGRATED PERIPHERIALS (get a copy of your manual here if you don't have one), then go to INIT DISPLAY FIRST, and choose AGP. It's not clear from the manual if AGP is an available option, choose PCI slot if it is not. ECS is notoriously sloppy with their BIOS programming.

While you are in the BIOS, under ADVANCED CHIPSET FEATURES choose AGP &P2P BRIDGE CONTROL then make sure your AGP DATA RATE is set to auto.

Were are the jumpers to disable the on board videofor aopen mx3w pro-E

Why do you need to disable the onboard video??

If you have added a new graphics card it should automatically select this new card.

If it doesnt, you can go in to the bios and disable the onboard graphics card from there.

For example, Onboard graphics can usually be refered to in the bios as PCI, so if you've added an AGP card or PCI-E card then you would just need to select either one of these from the bios menu.

Not sure what bios your using but it may even have ann option to disable onboard graphics.

ECS M925 MoBo onboard graphics

Well it all depends on if the onboard is fried. Usually, that's a sign of overheating. I'd toss in a case fan. Maybe try running the system with the side of the case off of it. If it still does this try putting a fan beside it to give it a massive rush of airflow. If it stables out, then it's a heat issue.

You can put an AGP card into that motherboard, which is always beneficial to the performance since the processor and RAM isn't being used by the video. However, you'll need to disable the onboard video system in the BIOS before you can really use an AGP card to it's ability.

I hope this helps bud.

Compaq EVO 510 CMT

Accourding to other users that own the 510CMT, once the AGP card has been installed it automatically disables the onboard graphics card.

From reading post from the link above, the EVO can run only a 4x 1.5v AGP video card and it's picky about this. So if you have an AGP card & it runs both 8x & 4x speed chances it wil not function in the EVO.
Here is a list of AGP 1.5v 4x cards that should function in the EVO:

Good Luck!

For user BIOS21 & julio1963,
How to enable you're (Add-in AGP video card) & disable the onboard, integrated S3 graphics UniChrome 2D/3D PCI graphics card.
Enter you're bios. Open you're user manual to page 3-13. Integrated Peripherals. Go to, Init display first. Set to AGP.
(Not to PCI). That is all you need to change. The MSI bios will than see you're add in AGP card & automatically disable the PCI S3 graphics, (Onboard) card.

If I can help you further, feel free to post here.
Please, each user's vote this issue as a fix, if this helped you to get you're bios to see you're new AGP graphics cards.
