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.

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.

I just installed a new sapphire radeon atlantis 9600 pro video card 256GB ... everything installed and ran well until it the monitor will not receive signal

check the bios and make sure that the onbord video is disabled, pull battery off the motherboard and reset everything if nothing else works, Be sure to plug monitor into the onboard video card so u can access the bios, also check that cable is snug at both ends(i know silly but you would be amazed) if stilll nothing fallback on other videocard and test new card in another computer, was the videocard seated snugly and tightened down good?

For user BIOS21 & julio1963,
How to enable you're (Add-in AGP video card) & disable the onboard, integrated S3 graphics UniChrome 2D/3D PCI graphics card.
Enter you're bios. Open you're user manual to page 3-13. Integrated Peripherals. Go to, Init display first. Set to AGP.
(Not to PCI). That is all you need to change. The MSI bios will than see you're add in AGP card & automatically disable the PCI S3 graphics, (Onboard) card.

If I can help you further, feel free to post here.
Please, each user's vote this issue as a fix, if this helped you to get you're bios to see you're new AGP graphics cards.

My pc still won't boot up

The beeps are beep codes. Were they short or long? Also do you know who makes your BIOS?

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.
