Motherboard - disable onboard graphics

I have a Gateway GT5252 computer with a FIC K2BC51 motherboard. I want to use a PCI EX graphics card. The problem is the new card is not recognized. Since the bios does not contain an option to select video options, how can I truly disable the onboard graphics and have it look to the PCI EX part for the video

Need emachines T3304 motherboard connection diagram


The eMachines T3304 Desktop PC uses an FIC K8MC51G motherboard.

First International Computers { Inc}

http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socket754/fick8mc51g.shtml

http://support.gateway.com/s//MOTHERBD/FIC/105554/105554nv.shtml

Click on Product Views, then on - M-Front Panel Connector

The plastic front of your eMachines is the Front Panel.

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.
Sometimes abbreviated as F_PANEL, or FP1.

Looking at the motherboard installed in the computer case, the Front Panel header is at the Bottom/Right.

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/FIC/105554/105554mvr4.shtml

The above link shows the pinout, of the Front Panel header.
(Note* The Front Panel header may not be Orange in color)

It is the Second header over from the bottom/right side.
The pins are numbered.

Starting on the TOP row, from the RIGHT side going towards the LEFT;
Pins 10, 8, 6, 4, and 2

Starting on the BOTTOM row, from the RIGHT side going towards the LEFT;
Pins 9, 7, 5, 3, and 1.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive Activity LED light.
The LED light that blinks when the harddrive is in use, or active.

Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the LED is dim when operating, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch (Button), IF a Reset switch is used.


C) Pin 9 is for 5 Volt power. I believe if memory serves, that it is ONLY used by the factory.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive wire. ( + )
If the Power On LED light is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

F) Pin 10 is N/C. Not Connected.
(Note it states - Key
It shows you where the pins are. What order they should be by the missing pin)

The FIC K8MC51G motherboard;

1) Has a Socket 754 processor socket.
AMD processors fit in this processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_754

2) The motherboard chipset is an Nvidia C51.
It is part of the GeForce 6 series, and more specifically, the GeForce 6100 series,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_6_Series#GeForce_6100_and_6150_series_chip_specifications

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_6_.286xxx.29_series

Using this knowledge you can see what Processors are supported, and what Ram Memory is supported, (And how much)

AMD Sempron, or AMD Athlon 64 processors, with up to a 1000MHz Front Side Bus. (FSB) { That fit in a Socket 754 processor socket)

DDR Sdram ram memory that is 200MHz up to 400MHz.
(PC2100, or PC2700, {333MHz}, or PC3200)

{184-pins. 92 on each side}

OR,

DDR2 Sdram ram memory that is 400MegaHertz up to 1066MHz.
(PC2-3200, or PC2-4200/4300, or PC2-5300, or PC2-6400, or PC2-8500)

{240 pins. 120 on each side}

Your motherboard uses DDR Sdram. (184 pins. 92 on each side)

Maximum TOTAL Amount is 2GigaByte. (2GB)
Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is 1GB.

3) Has one PCI-Express x16 slot for a PCI-Express graphics card.

The PCI-Express technology used for the motherboard is
PCI-Express 1.1

HOWEVER, you can use a PCI-Express graphics card that is based on the PCI-Express 2.0 technology.

PCI-Express 2.0 is Backward Compatible, with PCI-Express 1.1

You just will Not get the full capability of a PCI-Express 2.0 graphics card.
Will you notice? No

My integrated motherboard graphic card is damaged and i am installing a new graphic card but i need to disable any built-in graphic capabilities on the motherboard. can u please help?


Enter the bios and disable the onboard video card. If that is not an option, then there should be a setting for the video to boot to AGP or PCI. Change to PCI.

How to disable HP m7330n onboard video


If that's so, use Graphics card for that matter. It will automatically read/use the graphics card and not your onboard video. Just look on your motherboard if what type of graphics card will you use for your graphics card slot in the motherboard. Whether it is AGP, PCI/PCI Express.

I have a hp presario SR5440AN and am trying to find out if i can use a pci express graphic card in it


Yes you can, if your computer has an AGP slot (advance graphic port) then it would be better to use a AGP graphics card instead on a PCI graphics card.
I can't remember if the Presario has an onboard graphics controller on the motherboard, if it has and you install a AGP or PCI graphics card, you may need to disable the onboard graphics controller in the BIOS.
