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.

How do i upgrade inbuilt graphics?


You probably need to go into the Bois settings and disable the on board graphics. To do this you will need to start by being plugged into the on board graphics and have the GeForce card plugged in. Turn the computer on and during the HP splash screen, you sill see some options. I believe the setup option is F10. You will need to press this key to enter the setup. You will now need to locate the video options and set the source to the PCI-E. This will disable the onboard and enable the GeForce card. Once you save this setting and reboot you will need to move your monitor cable from the onboard card to the new card and finish the installation in windows.

Hope this helps

Your pc has a special graphics expansion port - AGP x8

You can insert any graphics cards which will fit the port. Check carefully, there are quite a few different types of graphics port.

Once inserted, boot up the PC, and insert the disk you should get with the card, it will have all the relevant drivers.

There should be no need to alter the bios settings, the new card will be identified by the boot process.

If power supply does become an issue, you will need to upgrade the PSU (Power Supply Unit).

Unable to upgrade onboard graphics on dell gx520


Try disabling your onboard graphics in the BIOS. Some BIOS allow this. If you have a sound card, disable the onboard sound too. Count your beeps. they contain a code. Go online and "Google" bios codes. This should give you a starting point to diagnose the problem.

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.

Disable the existing video card in device manager and try again. The onboard video will always try to take first spot, so disable it ...your video will still work until you can install the new video card :)

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".
