Disabling Onboard Video

I'm having trouble installing an video card in the agp slot on this motherboard. Do I have to disable the onboard video ? If so, how do I do that? I've tried to disable in device manager with no luck. Also I went into bios and told it to recognize the agp slot for video with no luck. The manual doesn't mention any jumpers. PLEASE HELP before I throw it out the window.

Thanks

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

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.

I need to disable the onboard video by finding the jumpers on the motherboard (MSI 7191 Version 1.1). When I installed a new PCI card (because the onboard video is broken) the computer freezes up and...


Go to the device manage and instead of disabling it, uninstall it. Then power down, move the cable to the pci port. reboot, when windows brings up the new hardware found, hit cancel until it disappears. Go back to device manager and if it has re-appeared uninstall it again and go about your business.

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:


http://www.buildeasypc.com/sw/bios_setup.htm



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.

V2DP Video Stopped Working


It is not possible to disable the onboard video but, if you install an AGP 4X video card (Brown slot) the BIOS will automatically give priority to your new card.

Remember to remove the power cord before installing any card because the motherboard is still powered even if the computer if off.

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

GeForce4 MX 420 Video Card


First question: Are you sure you have a PCI card?
there are several points here:
Make sure you have the monitor connected to the correct output on your computer. (In this case to the output of the graphics card, not to your onboard output)
If you have a PCI card set bios to PCI
Setting it to AGP means the computer is looking for a graphics card in you AGP-slot on you motherboard.

I cannot help thinking, that you actually have a AGP card in a AGP slot and that you computer is not working on onboard, but on AGP. But you can check which graphics device is used, in display properties (right-click Desktop, Properties, Settings)

Please post some feedback

You need to enter your motherboards bios. As the system starts up press the Delete key every two seconds. Hopefully you'll have video doing this. If you do not have video display. You'll have to remove the new video card for a short while. Again enter your bios. Still have your manual? If not click the link & download it here. http://www.foxconnchannel.com/EN-US/support/downloads.aspx?ProductModel=865G7MC-ES&TypeID=en-gb0000001
Enter Advanced Chipset Features
Goto pg. 33
On-Chip VGA (Default: Enabled). Disable this.
Init Display First (Default: Onboard/AGP) Change to AGP/Onboard. The AGP is to load first before the onboard.
Save & shut down the system. Clean out the AGP slot. There can be a dust build up from not using it. Canned air works well.
Leave the side case off untill your sure the 7600 is running correctly.
Get to know your board alittle. Read the manual a wee bit.
Good Luck! Enjoy!
please vote

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?
