I have a Tiny PC with PIII/733 proccessor and Intel 810e onboard AGP graphics chip. I am desperate to upgrade my graphics but there is no AGP slot on the motherboard, only PCI. I`ve been told I can fit a 64mb, 3D PCI card and disable the onboard chip. Will the PC automatically detect my new card and overide the onboard graphics? or do I have to physically disable the onboard chip myself? If so....how??? Please speak in simple terms...I`m not a novice but I`m not Bill Gates either. Thanks
Check that you can disable the onboard this cannot normally be disabled only in Device Manager under Exists in all Hardware Profiles You would have to remove the tick to stop it working, after you fitted a PCI card
you can get a ge force 4 mx440 pny nvidia 64mb from pc world for £69.but will find cheaper elseware,but check cooling and psu power first,i fitted one finally this week after a lot of hassle only to find i need more power,i have 250 watt it says on box i need a 350 watt,i bet yours is as low as mine,so it would pay to check
