No, the units will conflict with eachother. If you are using the add on card, you must disable the onboard card.

    You can make two graphics cards work only if your motherboard and graphics card supports SLI. AGP is an older model slot, so my guess is that your motherboard does not support it. However, I cannot be positive about that unless I know the make and model of your board.



    More information on SLI is available via the following link.

Hi

Thank you for your query

Generally you dont need to disable the onboard VGA to AGP, all you need to do is to ensure that you plug the monitor lead into the AGP VGA card.

However if you wish to disable the onbaord VGA then please do the following

1) Ensure that the monitor lead is plugged into the onboard VGA card/port
2) Siwitch on PC then press F12, esc or del key to enter detup (When switching on there will be a message that says press X to enter setup)
3) This will present you with a blue BIOS screen, if yuo go through the menu there will be a option that says 'onboard/integrated peripherals'
4) choose that option and there will be a further option 'onboard VGA' this will be set to enabled. Set this to disabled and then save and exit
5) Note at this point you will have to move the VGA cable from the monitor from the back of the VGA prot to the AGP VGA card

I hope this has been helpful

When I plug my monitor into my video card i get "no input signal" yet if i plug it into the onboard slot it works.could my PCI-E slot be bad?


Did you add a video card? If you have an AGP slot, it is best to put the video card in it. If so you need to go into the Device manager. Remove, disable or uninstall the onboard VGA driver. Go ahead and remove the PCI video card driver as well. Power down PC. Make sure monitor is hooked up to the Video Card, not onboard VGA. Power on PC. When Windows loads, it should detect the VGA card first, but if it detects the onboard first, ignore and don't setup onboard first. When Windows detects the card, load the necessary drivers when prompted. There is no need to reinstall the onboard driver for the video unless you wish to hook up two monitors.

Im trying to install agp...how do i disable the on board vga


Hi there.
Remember that if you are swapping from on-board graphics to a card you have to go into the BIOS and tell the machine that the primary graphics adapter is AGP/PCI Express.
Plug the VGA cable into the on-board graphics port, start the computer and enter the BIOS, tell the computer to use the AGP/PCI card as primary, press F10, save the changes and exit the bios.
The computer will try and restart so let it boot to post and turn it off, then put in your card and try to boot again.
Please post back if you need more help or advice.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

I wanna change my onboard vga with new AGP vga ,,,


Thats easy when your looking at the front of the case unscrew the left hand panel.(2 screws on the back) Now look at the agp slot its the one closest to the power supply. Punch out or unscrew back back blocking plate where the card pokes out. (Great cut warning on that if its the punchout type never use your hands! Always use a tool! They cut real bad!)
Now earth youself on the case by touching it before touching the card. Slip the card into the slot and screw it into the back plane on the top. Once the card is installed fit the side cover back on. Now plug the VGA D shaped connector (15 pin) into the back of the new video card. Now your ready to start up the machine. While the computer is booting with the new card insert the driver cd that has come with the card. When windows boots just follow the prompts and it will install the drivers. Its as simple as that. When you install a new card you don't need to remove the old one because its a part of the motherboard. The motherboard realises that you have a new card in and it uses that instead.
Don't forget to rate me!

Your AGP (Advanced Graphics Port) slot is a Video Card Slot on *********** Board... It is usually a brown slot this is above the PCI (white slots). You have to have a Video Adapter ( video card ) for your PC to display ANYTHING, so you either have a card or you have onboard video which shared some of your system RAM for Video. This card is where you plug in your monitor, so if your monitor plugs into a seperate card then you probably have an AGP card, if it plugs in near the mouse/kb/sound then it is most likely an onboard video adapter.

Video card makes system unstable


Hi Wayne, it's rule of thumb to always uninstall the old software from add/remove programs before installing the newer software drivers. The reason for this uninstall is so the two programs do not over-write files with the same name.
The ASUS P4S800-MX motherboard does have an onboard graphics card, (SiS Real256E). If you added another video card into the AGP slot & did not disable the onboard graphics, than you're AGP card will not run correctly. (I'm suprised it even loaded)!
Please read page 2-19 in you're motherboard manual to help fine tune the bios when using an AGP video card. Than go to page 2-21 & than set, Primary VGA bios to; [AGP,VGA Card]. Save & exit. The PC will restart.
Press & hold the power on button on the case. This will power off the system. Unplug the power cord from the power supply. Insert you're AGP card & make sure it is fully seated. Close the case & plug in the power cord. Boot up the system. Uninstall any other software you did install for the AGP card. Retsart the PC after uninstall is complete. Install the latest software you downloaded for the AGP card. Restart after install is complete.
Lastly, run windows update service & choose ustom, not express. Check for hardware & software updates. You're system should function much better & when you check the system properties you will find you have more system memory. This is because the onboard video used you're system memory to run.

Good luck Wayne!

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?
