Changing from onboard graphic card to new in PCI

  Wizz the Wizz 22:55 11 Jul 2003

I am at present using an onboard graphics card.
I have installed a PCI card and run driver cd.
Tried running with PCI card connected resulting in blank screen. Had to change back to onboard connector.
Checked display adapters which said of new card that windows detected a problem with the display driver, try reinstalling. (Did this with no change)
Discovered AMIBIOS SETUP :Primary Graphics Adaptor set for OnBoard AGP.
Can change this to PCI card but am concerned that if card is not installed correctly I will still have a blank screen, and will not be able to access the onboard graphics card, and therefore unable to change AMIBIOS settings.
Advice requested

Go to Device Manager if you have two Display Adapters showing, on your old onboard Adapter remove the tick "Exists in all Hardware Profiles".

In the other make shure there is a tick

PS then reboot

changing the bios setting will not give you a blank screen in bios,you need to change it to give it a go,what is your mobo and what is your card,sometimes they are not compatable,try setting first as you can change it back

Not all motherboard's will allow you to disable the Graphics in bios or with jumper that's why I posted the above

Yup if you follow woodchips advice it should work, or at least it did for me when changing fron on board sound to a PCI card.
