Re: how to turn off on board graphics card

Get into the bios of your computer. (look it up on the internet if you don't know how) search around, there should be a setting in there for onboard graphics. most likely in a "devices" or "advanced devices". this is just off memory but keep searching and don't play around with other settings. ^^

Wow, just buy a gaming computer. The burn-in, compatible components, warranty, all those things are sooo nice. Take a lot of burden off the whole system.

AlienWare has really good stuff.

Graphic card problem

Sure you can upgrade and put a new graphics card in one of the pci slots.

Try Tiger Direct for graphics cards at:

When the site comes up just put in Video Graphics Card in the search box and press GO. You can sort the list Price Low to High.

I want to use a better vga but it isnt any port

Without a VGA port, you can't use a VGA card, pretty simple stuff.

If you want to add a video card, you will need to get a PCI video card (NOT PCI-E!) There are a number of them out there, and pretty much anything made in the last 3 to 4 years will be better than the on-board video...

How do you turn off the on board graphics on a PCCHIPS P25G MB.

If you have not tried to turn off the onboard graphics in the bios then you should do so. When you start your you will be given the option to enter setup( sometimes it is the delete key or one of the F keys }. once you are there simply look for the onboard adapter and disable it there. be sure to save changes before exiting.

Which latest Graphic card can be supported by my Asrock P4i45GV?


Any video card that supports AGP x8 Should work on this motherboard.

For example Nvidia 7800 GS AGP or 7600 GS AGP should work fine.

But a better investment would be to upgrade the motherboard to a PCI-E supporting board and possibly AMD Dual or Triple / quad core processor the ram is very cheap for DDR2 these days.

Upgrade would be best in long run.

You have to have a Graphics Card or your PC will not work unless you have on board video ( On the Motherboard )... I would suggest trying to get one off of you can get most anything for free on there.

No display

Hi st_niclaus,
(Note: ASRock does not list the FX 5500 series AGP graphics card on their web site).
To confirm this please see the VGA supported list at ASRock, click this link:
There is an order that should be followed when upgrading from using the onboard video to the AGP card.
Check your bios setting. See Init. Graphic Adapter Priority page 27 & 28 in manual.
Set to: [AGI/PCI/Onboard].
Also see instructions on how to install, AGI slot: on page 17.
AGI = ASRock Graphics Interface.
If your display still does not function after making these changes, it is possible your FX 5500 is not compatible with your board.
(Suggest you buy one from the list provided by ASRock's supported link above).

Good luck st_niclaus!

Upgrading VIDEO CARD

If your motherboard's graphics slot is AGP and your graphics card is AGP then it should be fine if your motherboard is PCI-E and graphics is PCI-E it also is fine make sure your motherboard and graphics are compatible.
