    I installed a geforce 7300 into this mobo. I changed the bios setting to "enable if no GPU", disabled the onboard video, then enabled the 7300. I plugged it up and got 1/2 blue screen. while it was still on I switched to the on board video and it was still on. I tried to change the frame buffer size to 0 but the lowest value was 16. I still got 1/2 blue screen.

Hi Rick, you need to disable the onboard video from within you're bios. Please go to page 28 in you're manual. This will show you how to enter the bios menu. Once there go to page 26, where you will find. Onboard GPU (Enable If No Ext GPU) set this to Disable. Save & exit you're bios. You're system will auto restart. Once windows has finished loading, install the driver software for you're PCIE card. Suggest you check for updated driver software for you're PCIE video card.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

My biostar g31 -m7 te motherboard does not boot when i try to add a msi rx800 pcie video card,,sometimes i get a overclock fail message after i remove the card and reboot,,,how do i get this card to work...


Turn the computer off.
Remove the PCI-E video-card.
Boot the computer.
Press DEL to "enter BIOS setup".
Disable the "onboard video" adapter,
or set the highest video-priority to be the PCI-E slot.
Save settings, but do not "exit" from BIOS setup.
Turn the computer off.
Install the PCI-E video-card.
Disconnect the video-cable from the onboard VGA-port,
and connect the video-cable to the new video-card.
Turn the computer on, and the video-output through the new video-card should be displayed on your monitor.

Best video card upgrade for Gateway GT4024???? Stock computer....except ram upgrade to 2x1gb....want to increase the video handling from the slow onboard video


Your upgrade options for a better video card are really dependent on how much you want to spend.  You have a PCI express x16 slot which is what your are going to use.  Visit www.newegg.com and you can look up video cards by manufacturer, memory amount, and even filter it by how much you are willing to spend.  Here's a link at newegg for "the best video card upgrade":
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161203

Since there is a newer PCI 2.0 Express connection on newer computers, you can get your video cards cheaper now.  You will notice a huge improvement with any video card you choose since onboard video is about the worst.  Just remember to go into the device manager and disable onboard video card after you install the new video card.  
Good Luck

Dell Dimension 5100 won't start with new FireMV 2400 PCI Express video card


Did you check to make sure the video card is installed in the right spot? Has the onboard video card been disabled in Windows - and when you say it will not boot, do you mean physically no POST. Do you get any error codes? If you can get into the CMOS (Bios) Setup screen - change the primary display adapter from the onboard to AGP, PCI, or PCI-E depending on which card that is. Use this information at your own risk - hope it helps.

Need help disableing onboard video, and installing PCIe video card.


Hi rebelel1271, I do have the manual for you're Intel motherboard. You can have it as well. Click on the link below to download you're manual. document.write("D101GGC Product Documentation & Manuals") D101GGC Product Documentation & Manuals
Intel states you do not need to make any bios changes when you add a PCI-Express video card. See this on page 17, PCI and PCI Express Auto Configuration. Before installing you're PCI-E video card, open windows controll panel. Than open add/remove programs. Look for the driver software for you're onboard ATI Radeon X200. Uninstall that software. (If listed). Close all opened windows & shut down windows. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Open the case. Install you're new ATI Radeon X800 PCI-E video card. Double check all internal connections, (In case you may have bumped loose any cables). You're X800 may also have a 3-pin or 4-pin male power connector built on the card. If so, plug power to the X800.

A little information. Once you're PCI-E has been installed. You're system memory will increase.

Good Luck!

Can I install a PCI video card on my D915GAG?


Are you sure it's a PCI slot you are putting it into, and not a PCIe slot? If so, check your BIOS is set to allow PCI graphics.
