I'm trying to find the right location in my bios to disable a video card

    ok, here's my real problem from the beginning, awhile ago i installed a 1gb video card, and all worked well, then about a month ago, when playing WOW(worl of warcraft), or any other game that used my video card, my pc would shut completely down in 5 min or less. so I re installed my old video card which is a 128, pci, the new card was a new pci-e. The problem I have now is that when i turn my pc on I have to have the monitor cord plugged into the pci-e card, but when windows starts, I have to then plug my monitor into the pci card. I've gone through my device manager and completely disabled, and removed my pci-e card. But now what do i have to do in my bios??

F2A55M-DS2 vista display drivers

Try downloading the latest drivers from AMD's website, found here:

You can use AMD's auto detect program to find the best match.

If you're using a video card plugged into the PCI-E slot to display your graphics, I'd recommend disabling the onboard video by accessing your computers BIOS/EFI by pressing the right Function key on startup. If the graphics card you're using is AMD, the above link will also find the correct driver to use with it.

If it's a Nvidia based card, try their site for drivers, located here:

Hope this helps!

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.

Everex GA3400 no video, no BIOS splash, nothing. Install PCI card


First look for a CMOS battery on the motherboard. If found, disconnect the battery and also disconnect the power cables from the system.

Wait for about 10 minutes and then reconnect battery.

Turn it on. If it remains same, try to re-seat memory modules and let me know if you get any beep sound when you turn on the system

Computer freezes up after install of drivers for new video card..

You do need to disable the onboard in bios in order to run a video card. In bios you should see an option for onboard devices or integrated devices. This is where you would disable the onboard video. You will also need to change your graphics options in bios to the PCI-E being the primary. Once you make these changes in bios, save and exit. Your computer will reboot itself applying the changes. Once you are back in your operating system you can then insert the cd that came with your card & run the installation. Once this has completed reboot and you should be all set. Hope these tips help.

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.

If you plug in a pci video card, sometimes the bios, not Windows disables the card on board.
If the onboard video is not being disabled from bios, then you will be able to use either one or the other video cards, no need to disable it manually.
If your system takes both cards and you want to disable one, then go to system properies/hardware/device manager and disable the unwanted video card from device list by ticking disable on device profile.
