Hi,

All you have to do is just insert the GE force card in the AGP/PCI slot and thats it.Then turn on your PC and install the drivers.Don't need to disable anything.

Not a must, simply plug it in. You should get video instantly from the geforce, if not plug your monitor in the onboard video, enter bios. either f1 f2 or delete key, it shows on some side of the screen what button to press to enter setup.

in setup you need to change the setting of the internal video to disabled - go thought the bios and find it, noting bad will happen.

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.

You don't disable it in Device Manager: reenable it immediately. The correct steps to replace the video card:
1 - you uninstall its driver and reboot at least twice.
2 - You install the new card, plug the Monitor in it and reboot at least once.
3 - you enter in the BIOS and disable it in there, and only in there, and you reboot at least twice with a check in the BIOS that it has remained disabled in between.
3 - you install the new driver.

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

Want to disable onboard graphics to install and use pci vga card


During the initial boot sequence (as soon as you turn your PC on), try pressing <DEL> button (or F2 or F10 - you will see info on the bottom of the screen stating something like "Press _____ (del, F2, F10) to go to Setup..."

This will take you to BIOS, main setup panel for your PC.
There you can find and option for switching your main GFX card.
Options will be something like: onboard, pci, agp. You should choose
PCI.

Try doing this after you insert your new PCI gfx in your computer.


Good luck,

Want to disable onboard graphics to install and use pci vga card


You should be able to turn it off by booting the pc up into the Bios and changing your video settings to AGP.

Blank screen


I just installed a geforce 6200 with heatsink, no fan, in my computer. Fry's is having a sale and for $20 after rebate, how could I go wrong? Upon first installation, the computer failed to boot.

THE FIX

Discovered modern computers will not even atempt to boot if the power supply is below the minimum requirement for the video card's recommended wattage. More proof that over-powered supplies are not an absolute necessity. I upgraded to 250w from the onboard 180w and it fired up. The rest was disabling the integrated video which i found out was compatible with geforce 5200 level of operations.

My system:
Dell Opti-plex GX260, cut to bare minimum since it was from a commercial business with 1G RAM after upgrade.

Enter your bios & make sure the video is set to AGP.
Your card has two VGA outputs. One VGA & one HDMI (high def). Switch your monitor cable that connects to the video output to the other femal connector at the Pc. You can do that while the system is running.
If that does not help think of this. You have been using the onboard video for some time. It must be dirty as heck. Remove the 6200 & blow it out with some canned air. No canned air. Use a clean paint brush & a sweaper. Than grab some alcohol & a cotton swab. Lightly dampen the cotton swab (no dripping). Wipe the copper retainer contacts of the video slot. Let it dry completely. Re-seat the card applying even pressure side to side till the card is seated firmly into the slot. Some cards require additional power. Check your 6200's install manual.
