Hi,

I would like to switch off the graphics card,and replace it with a suitable PCI-e card.Is this possible.If so how?

PS I am 90yrs old ,so an early reply would be helpfull ?

Hi, onefoot. You had asked the same question a few days ago at click here.

As we said there, onboard graphics will automatically switch to the dedicated graphics card when the latter is installed.

If it doesn't we'll let you know what to do.

What graphics card are you going for by the way? Is there a particular reason for wanting to upgrade the graphics. G

On my Desktop Onboard Graphics Disabled Automatic when I fitted the new Graphics card

If it does not disable you can Disable it in Device Manager. Why not connect another monitor to it?
