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

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.

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.
