others will be more help but i disabled my on board graphics chip in the bios first, other wise you get conflicts

go into the bios, to do that restart computer and start tapping the Delete key

Now look in the bios 1st for onboard graphics, you have to disable this

Next look in the bios for AGP port and ensure that it is enabled

i have the same problem,same chipset,on a matsonic 8308e mobo,every time i use this forum i get "advised"to turn of in bios,even though i say every time that there is no bios setting for on board graphics.in the end i got fed up with people telling me to do something that i had already said was not possible,i have mobo manual and there are no jumper settings either,i have not given up hope but am running out of ideas.my mate done his by loading os on differant pc then putting hard drive into pc with sis chipset,but that was on 98se,i am on xp so i think that xp would detect sis and load its own drivers putting me back to square one.good luck

If you go to device manager, you can remove the tick in the box Exists in all Hardware. It will not remove it but it will disable it.
