Video not working on 755Twins-hdtv motherboard.

The option to disable the onboard graphics is in the BIOS.
You need a PCI-express card. You should not be trying to fit any graphics cards into the PCI slot.
The VGA/HDTV conection should have been supplied on a seperate card.

Pci express will not work

Your N9600GT provides two HDMI out puts for dual display.
Even though you are currently only using one HDMI. Switch your monitor cable to the other HDMI out put. See if you now have display.
Also while in the bios allow, Page 2-27 in manual, Allocate IRQ to PCI set to [Yes]. Page 2-24, Internal Graphics Mode Select, [Disable]

Comp will not recognize my agp radeon HD2400 pro graphics card

Try the following : Go into the setup routine using the onboard video. Go to the  Intergrated Peripherals.
Find the onboard video and change it to disable. Save changes.
Change monitor to the AGP card.
  I hope this helps.

Here is a web site for your Award Bios setup:

Inegrated Peripherals
This menu allows you to change the various I/O devices such as IDE controllers, serial ports, parallel port, keyboard etc. You can make changes as necessary. See figure 5.

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.

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.

System doesn't see AGP card

Hello flaxx

I believe you'll need to find a way to disable your integrated (onboard) video in the BIOS. I know there isn't a direct way to do it but, please, see the next link. The user there found a way.

HERE is the way another user accomplished this task. (disabling onboard video). It concerns a different Asus motherboard but, I checked your motherboard manual, those same features are available.

HERE is the AsusTek forum for your motherboard. You can search and post here. There will be other users of that same board there that I'm sure will be able to help you.

HERE is your motherboard manual. However, I didn't see anything that particularly addressed disabling the onboard video.

Please, post back here w/ your results, questions, and any comments, etc.

Thank you
BJ @:)

Disabling Onboard Video

no you dont need the jumpers or some from there...just before booting your OS,go into the bios field.
there you will find the option you must set to disable.
the exact point youll find it I cant tell you because bios are different from board to board..depending of the manufacturer..just surf the bios,youll find it and disable it
good luck bye

No video output

try this -remove the card then restart the pc (if this is xp) start/right click my computer/properties/device manger-look for "display adapters" find the onboard type you have and uninstall it power off then install the new card you might have to look in device manager for something referred to as graphics controller
