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.

When i install my video card the screen is blank


Use onboard graphics and enter the BIOS/CMOS by pressing the delete key during boot.

Go through the options, some-where there, there should be an option to enable PCI-Express slot, PEG when one is inserted. This need to be set.

So onboard VGA is disabled unless PCI-E Graphics card/PEG is inserted.

hello jaymarque, hi, try reducing the resolution, if not you should upgrade your onboard RAM around to 1gigabyte ram, switch your processor to Dual core 2.0GHz and or upgrade/change your AGP to a ram up to 512mb

I want to install a graphics card in a Presario CQ5001.do i have to disable the pre installed chipset graphics,If so .how do i do this?


When you install the new graphics card the onboard one will automatically be disabled.
Just plug the monitor cable to the new card and start the PC.

In some machines this just won't work ,in this case enter the Bios and look for an option to change the initial VGA card from onboard to AGP(or other) then save the settings and exit.

Please rate answer if it worked if not then let us know.
Thanks.

New Geforce 6200 on AGP 8x slot has no output


if you can't get a display from the onboard vga the PSU must have killed the mother board. the 6200 gets all of its power from the AGP slot. so if the PSU killed the 6200 it must have gone thru the motherboard. it does not seem likely it took out the 6200 but nothing happened to the board. try taking out the RAM modules. if the computer does not beep then most likely the motherboard is dead.

White screen with radeon x1300 pro agp 256m


Hi porkchop_66_ , if you uninstalled factory graphics drivers, chances are you uninstalled the motherboards built in graphics card driver. Since you haven't provided your motherboard model & manufactures name I can't be 100% your weren't using an onboard graphics card. So I'll cover both.
If you added the X1300 AGP card, (Not replacing an older AGP card), you'll need to enter the motherboards bios menu & set the bios to boot to the AGP slot. If you replaced an older AGP card, its possible you have the monitor plugged into the wrong VGA out-put on the Radeon. There are two ports. One DVI & one VGA. Try each & check for display. Lastly, the Radeon X1300 card you have
runs in an AGP port that supports 1.5volts. Check your, motherboard manual. Check if your motherboard supports AGP cards of 1.5v.
If all this does not make sense, post back with your motherboards model number & the manufacture name & I'll be able to help further. Post here.


Good luck porkchop_66_!

Problem When Updating


Hi r4remiz,
There are a few reasons you are receiving this message.
One, the bios is not set to boot to the Nvidia AGP card.
(I'll need your motherboard manufactures name & model No# of the motherboard). (I'll use this information to download the manual for the MB & check the bios settings).
Two, the AGP card is not completely seated. The fact that you have display tells me the motherboard is most likely using the onboard VGA card instead of the AGP card. Hence when you tried to update your AGP card windows did not see the Nvidia graphics card & there for could not install the software.
Check your manual for the MB. Boot to the bios. Look for VGA settings & check if its set to PCI. If so you want to change it to boot AGP. If you find this has not helped, include the information I need & post it here. I should be able to help you solve this.

Good luck r4remiz!
Thank you for using fixya.

Unable to get 1440 x 900 resolution with onboard graphics.


Yes, through bios you can only select VGA but it wont have any effect on what you see on windows, so let bios aside. Is through Windows Display properties that you select all the different resolutions... (RIGHT CLIC YOUR MOUSE OVER THE DESKTOP, SELECT PROPERTIES AND LOOK FOR THE SETTINGS TAB ON TOP, MOVE THE SLIDER AT THE MIDDLE TO SELECT RESOLUTIONS) in windows is where you should have the latest drivers from ECS (now PCCHIPS) for your motherboard's onboard graphics. 1440x900 is widescreen type resolution, only available rather recently by new monitors that support it and so I guess it wasn't included in your original motherboard driver CD. Then it's a must to have the new drivers installed and the monitor's plug and play recognized by windows in order to attain the desired resolution from the card.

Any new AGP video card will be far better than the onboard type. DVI is just a digital type of conector and doesn't have to do with the resolution selection, but it will make the images in the monitor show a little better since there is no signal degradation in digital transfer through the monitor cable.

Vedio controller


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.
