Gigabyte 7VM400M-Rev.1 Onboard Video

Not able to disable the onboard video for this motherboard. I e-mailed Gigabyte, and they were literally no help. They told me what I already knew, that I can't disable it from the BIOS menu. They suggested disabling it from Windows...which is what I originally did, but everytime I restart my computer,s ince its on my motherboard, it reinstalls the driver automattically and will not let me use the new PCI graphics card i bought. I've tried uninstalling the driver, disabling the onboard video card (via windows) and just deleting it all together from the hardware menu and no matter what, when I turn my computer back on it re installs the driver automattically...any help would be great

Onboard audio automaticly disabeled by video card

It sounds if it may be that you need to turn off the HDMI audio in the nVidia Control Panel. This can be accessed from either the system tray or by right clicking on the desktop. From the control panel, select "change resolution" under the "Display" heading and in the right panel select your display and you should find a drop down box under for the connecter, which will allow you to select HD audio disabled, then you can exit and save changes.

How do i disable onboard video on a intel d865glc motherboard?

A couple things to try:
  1. Most important, check with Intel's support site to see if you have the latest version of the BIOS.

  2. Boot to the BIOS: Choose "Configuration", then "Video", choose "Enable if Primary" or if you're feeling brave choose to Disable it entirely. WARNING: DON'T do this until your other card is working properly! You've been warned!

  3. While still in BIOS: Choose "Configuration", then "Video", choose "AGP" if available, or "Auto" if AGP is not an option.

Information from Intel support website.

I have the same problem with Asrock ALiveNF7G-HD720p motherboard with Gigabyte nVidia 8400GS video PCI adapter, it sometimes work but most of the time boot to onboard motherboard even though the BIOS...

You would want to make sure you have the latest bios for the motherboard updated. If the issue happens during post then it would be a motherboard related. However if it only happens in windows it would be an issue with the drives. Try grabbing the latest drivers from NVIDIA's website for your card. Then go into device manager in Windows and make sure you right click the onboard video and disable it. This setting should disable the onboard video in Windows and only allow the 8400GS card to run.

How to turn off the builtin video on QDI Winnex 1E motherboard?

Check your BIOS - there should be a setting in there to disable the onboard video. You shouldn't need to use a jumper to disable this.

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.

Disabeling display drivers on motherboard

If there's a configuration option for it, it would be in your BIOS. every model has a slightly different way they portray this option. some BIOSes tell you straight out, labeling it "enable/disable onboard video" option. others give you a prompt asking what you would like to ''prioritize'' for graphics. there are also specific jumper configurations you can use that would be documented in your motherboard's manual.

However, you may not find any such option there, as most boards today automatically disable onboard video when a card is installed. Make sure that the video card you are installing is snug and secure in the AGP slot, with all pins in the proper places, and with the plastic clamp locking it in place. It shouldn't feel loose, or be bent when you're positioning it.

Also, make sure that if the card needs to be plugged in to your power supply directly (there should be a white jack or two with four metal pins on one side of the card if there is), that you do so. If the card isn't getting any power, that could be why the motherboard isn't detecting it. Also, check to see if your power supply can handle the rating... some video cards require stupidly high amounts of power to run properly.

if all this doesn't help, either the video card itself or the AGP port ont he motherboard is malfunctioning. test a different video card if you have one in that system board, or take it to someone else to test on their computer. If you recently bought the card, you can have it sent in to the store you bought it from, and I'm sure that if you request it, they will test the video card themselves to see if it's defective, and give you a replacement if it is.
