Welcome to fixya

Well i never did it that way but ok

your going to have to reboot the computer with the reboot disk ,,

once thats done turn off computer and install the video card and then also insert the drivers disk that came with the video card
this should work has for me and i have done 100s of video cards
Although if you bought a good video card and still have a 400w power supply your going to run into trouble make sure you have a 500w power suplpy or better to run a good video card ,,,,,

i hope this helps you out have a good day:)

My asrock p4vm890 is has invalid mac address for both cmos and bios

The MAC is the unique identifier for the onboard LAN chip - if it's invalid then the chip has been fried - disable it from the BIOS and install a new PCI LAN card.

How do you disable the onboard graphics on an emachines C2825? I am attempting to install a Sapphire Radeon HD 4650 AGP video card, but my computer will not boot when i plug in the new video card. I have...

First of all that motherboard is too weak to fully use that video card, you could get the same framerate in games using a video card 2 generations older. 
Proper way of installing a new card:
1. uninstall the driver of the old one and reboot in BIOS - in there put all settings to auto;
2. shutdown the pc and install the new card; connect the monitor to it;
3. boot into BIOS, disable the onboard video card and reboot;
4. boot normally and install the driver.

Pc powers up but no video on screen gateway 420gr desktop

Yes generally speaking when you drop in a videocard it typically will disable the built on one. You may have to disable it though. I know you said you did not see the onboard video in BIOS but there is almost always a setting in there to turn it off.

How to disable onboard (Nivida 6100) video on a Acer Aspire E380 so I can install a EVGA 8800GTS and 650w PS.


First Connect your Monitor cable to the onboard connector.

Then boot your PC
After the Acer logo disappears press <Delete> on your keyboard to enter BIOS
From there you should be able to find the option to change the default Videocard to PCIE

press <F10> to save and exit
Shutdown PC
Switch Cable to Nvidia 8800GT and reboot
You should now be able to finish installing your new Vid Card

Hope this helps

My pc doesn't boot up

Did you have onboard video before? What is the video card? AGP8x, AGP4x, PCIe? If you had onboard video, you'll need to change the settings in the BIOS and disable the onboard video. You'll have to plug in at the onboard to access the BIOS.

Hp compaq dc5000 small form factor

Hi, uninstalling the onboard video will only be reinstalled by Windows next time you boot up. Disabling it in the Device Manager might and mght not do the trick if your mb is set on using the onboard. You might want to try and disable the onboard video in the CMOS/BIOS set-up. In some instances, you are asked in the BIOS what video will be used such as onboard, AGP or PCI or a selection of something like that. Also you can try and not allocating any memory to the onboard video. Hope this be of some help. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck.
