When you inserted the Video card and boot your computer the system will automatically detect the video card that was inserted into a AGP slot and make it as a default graphics card. You stilldon't need to disable it into the CMOS / BIOS settings.

Thanks

I have a aspire t-180,is there a video card that has to be taken out first before installing geforce 8400 ?


Regularly the video card (VGA port) is integrated into the motherboard (as pictured). You can install a new card using one of the PCI connector (can be white or yellow as in photo). After intalling the new video card you can go to Control Panel - Divice Manager a disable the old video card

Greetings, I have a Gateway 832Gm Media Center PC, I want to add a Radeon HD 5550 graphics card to get the ability to get dual monitor support. My question is do I disable the chipset via the bios or can...


Hi,
Most likely what you will want to do is just turn your resolution down to it's lowest settings. and turn off unplug the computer and install the card. Plug the monitor into the card and then boot up the computer. Sometimes depending on the computer you may have to disable the onboard video in the bios but a lot of times you don't. If you do run into an issue you can unplug the card hook the monitor back up the onboard video, then if need be disable the onboard driver, by going to control panel, then system properties, then device manager and then under video adapter disable the drivers for the onboard video but it shouldn't be necessary.
Thank you,
Lee

Need to connect 3 monitors. Want to use either a Nvidia 290 or ATI Radeon 9250 plus the VGA port. Installing the dual-video card disables the VGA port, cannot get it back. Help!!!


Use your AGP dual-video card for two and using a PCI VGA card for the third. It is best if the same manufacturer video driver is used for both cards, as two different ones could be problematic.

Want to upgrade e machines 1300g-02w


I have found that your built in graphics card can have a maximum of 128MBs of shared memory. Now your computer can only use a maximum of 4GBs on a 32-bit operating system but not all of it will show due to virtual address space http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/system/platform/server/pae/paemem.mspx/
if you want to get the full 4GBs you would need to get a new graphics card and disable the integrated card as well as get a 64-bit operating system as of now your processor suppots it. Since you are wanting to get a better faster processor it will need to be 64-bit if you are getting the 64-bit operating system. Here is where you can get a really good new processor: http://www.fadfusion.com/selection.php?product_item_number=10026806136 if you are wanting a faster one then I will look further.

Best video card upgrade for Gateway GT4024???? Stock computer....except ram upgrade to 2x1gb....want to increase the video handling from the slow onboard video


Your upgrade options for a better video card are really dependent on how much you want to spend.  You have a PCI express x16 slot which is what your are going to use.  Visit www.newegg.com and you can look up video cards by manufacturer, memory amount, and even filter it by how much you are willing to spend.  Here's a link at newegg for "the best video card upgrade":
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161203

Since there is a newer PCI 2.0 Express connection on newer computers, you can get your video cards cheaper now.  You will notice a huge improvement with any video card you choose since onboard video is about the worst.  Just remember to go into the device manager and disable onboard video card after you install the new video card.  
Good Luck
