How to disable onboard VGA


I bought a new video card and want to disable the onboard vga. There isn't any option under the integrated peripherals menu for disabling the VGA, so I tried a couple of things I reduced the VGA memory share to disable, and changed "Init display First" to AGP, but none of them worked. I also tried to reboot the machine when the cable is connected to the external video card.

Moreover I disabled the onboard VGA on the device manager bu also it didn't worked.

I will be grateful if someone helps me to solve this problem.

Thank You very much

    Thanks for the response. I bought a AGP vard :)

    I turned my bios settings to default and then changed "Init display First" PCI to AGP. I don't know how, but then my problem is solved :)

I believe if you install an AGP card the onboard VGA is supposed to be automatically disabled. Did you buy an AGP card?

Thank you for your query

Generally you dont need to disable the onboard VGA to AGP, all you need to do is to ensure that you plug the monitor lead into the AGP VGA card.

However if you wish to disable the onbaord VGA then please do the following

1) Ensure that the monitor lead is plugged into the onboard VGA card/port
2) Siwitch on PC then press F12, esc or del key to enter detup (When switching on there will be a message that says press X to enter setup)
3) This will present you with a blue BIOS screen, if yuo go through the menu there will be a option that says 'onboard/integrated peripherals'
4) choose that option and there will be a further option 'onboard VGA' this will be set to enabled. Set this to disabled and then save and exit
5) Note at this point you will have to move the VGA cable from the monitor from the back of the VGA prot to the AGP VGA card

I hope this has been helpful

Need to disable onboard video to allow vga board to work.

You should be able to disable the onboard video in bios.

Boot up the computer, and you should be able to press {Del} and the computer should load the bios setup program. My Acer is currently out for repair, but I believe the main menu will say something like "integrated peripherals," and from the submenu you should be able to disable the onboard video.

Thank you for your question, and please let me know if there's anything else I can help with.

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.

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!
