Removing Intergrated Video Card

  lodger 17:12 27 Jan 2004

MY 1MB graphics display is part of my motherboard, so there is no separate card to physically remove should I want to upgrade to, when I try to delete my present display, Windows prompts me to restart, then Windows finds it again, and installs it should I simply ignore the present graphics and install a new card, and allow Windows to find that one instead ?mmmmmmmmmmmm?

You'll need to remove the drivers for the old card, shut down the PC, add the new card and switch on, go into the BIOS and disable the onboard graphics and then Windows should only detect the new card. Install the drivers.

If you tell us the Mobo model someone can tell you the exact BIOS settings that needs to be changed.
