I want to disable the onboard graphics card in an Acer e500 desktop. Just installed a GeForce 8500 GT card and the machine now crashes intermittently so I am assuming the onboard card is causing a conflict

Can't install drivers for GeForce GT 430. "Graphics Adapter Not Found."


I am assuming that your PC is working alright connected to the onboard graphics port.
Make sure any supplementary power connectors to your video card are in place, and the card is firmly inserted into the PCIE slot.
If you try these two items with no results, you might try installing the card in a known working PC. It could be a problem with the card itself.

Hello,
From your description, it would seem that the monitor itself could be the problem. If you have a second monitor, try to plug that in and see what occurs. If you have a display, you have located the problem. You may also try to go to the BIOS and disable the onboard video, so that the GeForce will load. It could be conflicting with the onboard video.
Let me know how you make out,
Joe

You don't disable it from there. Reenable it again and do it right: you uninstall its drivers from Programs and you reboot twice; you install the new card and you connect the monitor to it; when the pc starts you go directly in the BIOS and you disable the onboard card from there; you reboot one more time and you install the drivers for the new card.

In this desktop the video card has been part of the motherboard so you don't remove it - you insert the new card in the brown PCI-E 16x connector, connect the monitor to it then you go in the BIOS and disable the onboard one.

Geforce 8500 won't show on computer and fan is working but no show how to fix


you may have to dis able the Onboard  graphics system and may need to check some things

sounds like yo had the same Problems that I had with my 5200 geforce The install did not go well. what was happening was the direct x was binding to the old mother board graphics system and not the new card . to make it rebind just change the refresh rate in the nvidia icon in your task bar . disable the display adapter from device manager for the motherboard graphics .put the card in the slot change the monitor cord boot up check you direct x by typing in run dxdiag and test directx to be sure it is running with your card you can also see that from the about nvidia you must have the driver for the card installed to do all this.. hope I helped install the driver first then disable download latest drivers here http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index5.aspx?lang=en-us

Installing New Graphics Card.How do you disable the onboard GC?


To disable the onboard graphics go into your CMOS settings and in there you should find something that says Graphics choices should be onboard or add on or some other form. It all depends on who made your BIOS. As far as a sound card not sure.

Are You sure the graphics card is not defect?
When I installed a graphics card instead of the onboard
circuit, the SIS Mirage was disabeled automatically.
I have installation CD for the graphics, of course.
Also, I thought that disabeling devices could be done
through the control panel, "hardware devices".
