Am attempting to disable an onboard graphics card in order to upgrade to a GE Force FX5200 card. So far without success. I have disabled the onboard graphics card via the device manager,but the computer will not detect new card niether will the hardware wizard. Please help am coming close to computer thro window I am running Windows XP on an Athlon 2400+ with 80GB hard disk.
If it's an older motherboard (although I doubt it if you're installing a GeForce FX5200) it might be a jumper on the motherboard that enables/disables the onboard graphics.
Often in the BIOS it has something like (without having just looked) Primary Display or something to the effect of "search here first for display adapter"). On computers I have used with onboard graphics that don't have an AGP slot, the options are AGP or PCI Slot. Maybe on yours it might be set to AGP but there's AGP Slot and PCI slot?
