Disable Display ?

Hi,
I have the M789cg motherboard and i have just picked up a new graphics card (new to me that is).

I was hoping for a simple PnP...but unfortunately not.

I have popped in the card, i get to windows screen and the computer reboots :(

I can get to safe mode and safe mode with networking, So i went straight to the nvidia website and downloaded the drivers....Once downloaded and the installshield start running i get an error..."The Nvidia setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware"

I am assuming that the software is looking at the built in vga adaptor, because windows still does in the " my computer" "display and drivers "

Anyway to the point.
Im sitting here with the monitor plugged into the new card and see everything on screen in network safe mode.......How can i disable the built in graphics adaptor on the motherboard.

Incidentally, I know the motherboard and card are not particularly great but that computer is only for playing one game for my son online :-)

Many thanks for your assistance

    Thank you for the fast replies :-)



    Unfortunatley there is no option of " peripherals" in bios, nor is there an option to disable vga or onboard graphics.



    PCI i have enabled but the computer is still rebooting at the login screen for windows.



    Would there be jumpers that could be moved / removed on this motherboard to diable the onboard graphics ?



    Again, many thanks :-)

    what slot did you plug the video card into ?... it sounds like you need to boot to that before it tries onboard video. the setting is in your bios. some motherboards do not allow you to shut off the onboard video either.

You need tp press F2 or Del on startup and enter the bios and look in the peripherals menu, if not there, just look for VGA or onboard graphics and select dissable, but remember there will be a line in the bios to enable the PCI or AGP card as the primary graphics controller, save settings and exit for a restart.

Check your bios settings for the graphic.

Try the onboard VGA graphic first.

Display problem


Hi there
try going into the bios settings and disable the on board graphics and change it to PCI or PCI Express.
You may have to plug the monitor into the on-board VGA port to do this, once done shut the computer down and change graphics port, then restart the pc, your problem should now be solved

Good luck and kind regards

HOW TO DISABLE MY ONBOARD GRAPHIC CARD??


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.

Enjoy!
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.

Hi,

before doing anything.. What do you mean you get no blank monitor? Do you see anything at all? Do you see the POST running? Also, when you put in the AGP, did you plug your monitor into the new card? Or are you trying to boot from the old intergrated one?

You can change your graphics input in the BIOS from integrated to AGP (after putting in the new card). But, It should pick it up fine without changing it. And if it doesn't work after doing so, your motherboard may keep the settings, and then a deeper problem arises..
