Installed graphics card-bios settings?

  dagwoood 15:10 16 Apr 2004

I've installed a new graphics card(Crucial Radeon 9200SE 64Mb)which all went smoothly.

In my BIOS advanced set up, there is a graphic win size option. Am I right in thinking this should be set to 64Mb as the card has 64Mb memory?

Also, prior to installing this card I was using the on board graphics. I've set the share memory size in the BIOS to zero. Is this all I have to do to disable the on board graphics or will my system automatically not use the on board graphics now I've installed a graphics card( BIOS is set up to recognise the AGP as the primary graphics adaptor)?

Any input appreciated, dagwoood.

Thanks for that huggyg71, it seems like I'll have to play around with the win.size settings to see what happens. I have 512mb ram installed and don't run any apps.that use a lot of memory so I have some leeway.

Cheers, dagwoood.
