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

Re: How to disable onboard VGA

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

Adding discrete graphics card to p6stp-fl


1) Unplug the computer from power.

2) Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds. Let go. (HAS to be 10. Count)
Do this same procedure TWO more times.
(IF the Power On LED flashes for a second, keep repeating until it doesn't)

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS Setup parameters back to the factory default settings.

3) FOLLOWING Anti-Static Precautions remove the graphics card.
Plug the monitor back into the Integrated (OnBoard) graphics, of the motherboard. (VGA connector)

4) Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

5) When Windows has loaded wait a couple of minutes, then take that graphics card's Installation (CD) Disk, and put it in the optical drive.

If the disk doesn't start loading after 10 seconds, go to My Computer, and double-click on the drive letter, next to the optical drive, the Installation Disk is in.

When asked choose all software. Nvidia Control Panel, and drivers.

Your computer will keep on using the Integrated (OnBoard) drivers, for graphics. It will Not use the drivers, and software you are installing now, until the graphics card is physically installed.

Install all software. If you are asked to restart your computer -> NO
Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Turn the computer off normally.
(Start > Turn Off Computer > Turn Off)

6) Unplug from power, follow Anti-Static Precautions.
Unplug the monitor from the motherboard. Physically install the graphics card.
Plug the monitor into the graphics card. Close the computer case.

7) Plug into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.
You may have to go into Nvidia Control Panel, and set the correct parameters for your monitor. (Screen Resolution / Color quality )

Clear CMOS Error Codes, and reset BIOS Setup back to factory settings doesn't work?
You get to go back into BIOS Setup, and set the submenu you changed, (Or submenu's), back to the factory standard setting.

You are trying to use the OnBoard graphics drivers for the -> graphics card. This = NO.
You need THE drivers for the graphics card installed F-I-R-S-T.

(OnBoard. ON the motherBOARD.
Used to be used for Integrated Graphics.
Makes it easier to understand if you use OnBoard Graphics )


When a device, (In this case a graphics adapter card), is installed, Windows 'breaks it's neck' to find suitable, matching drivers.
If THE drivers are not there, Windows will match up one of it's THOUSANDS of generic drivers.

This = No.

You need THE drivers already installed. Windows looks to see what device is installed, then finds THE drivers needed.

Bought new visionquest 19" monitor,

Nope it isn't defective. You don't mention from your question if you bought a LCD type or the CRT type of monitor. But I think you bought a LCD monitor right? My question here is where do you connect it? From the graphic card or in the onboard vga of your motherboard? How old is your graphic card/onboard vga? That is always the problem of an old graphic card because it can't release more pixels that's why it says out of range. Connect your old monitor it will work because it can support your graphic card/onboard vga. Buy a new graphic card with a specification that will suit to your motherboard and to your new monitor before it become a money waste

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

How do you turn off the integrated video on a Soyo SY-K7VME motherboard??

get into the Bios to disable the onboard VGA. Make sure your monitor is connected to the add on VGA card which you have installed before you disable this. Else you could always look up in the Dsiplay properties > settings and right click on the additional monitor and disable it.

Vga display problem

There is one pin/wire on the VGA connector that translates to the color red on your screen. If you aren't seeing any red, I would suspect that there is damage to the integrated VGA connector on the motherboard, or a component failure in the circuit.

These are great desktop boards.

The Video bus on these boards are shared between the integrated (onboard) video card and port and the AGP slot. This means that you can only use one or the other. When you install an AGP card in the slot it overrides the integrated video including your problem.

If you are good with electronics I'd take a look at the board under the scope and look for damage.

I would rist check with intel on the warranty. You may be surprised. I've had several of these replaced via RMA through intel. They are a bit older but still by desktop board of choice.

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!
