Onboard graphics are normally disabled via the Bios although, in some cases, installing a graphics card performs the function.

"have tried twice but could not get it to work"

You have access the bios and changed the VGA setting from PCI to either AGP/PCI-E will disable the onboard display

Shut down the pc Install the AGP or PCI-e display

card power up and load the drivers and you should be working

there are three options in bios onboard,pci,pci express,have changed the settings to pci express and left the shared memory to auto as recommened by asrock for the card to be detected,
disabled onboard graphics in device mamnger downloaded the drivers for the card installation went ok when pc restated it was using the onboard graphics
where do i go from there???

did you try installing the card without altering any bios settings as modern motherboards auto disable onboard graphics when a card is incerted in the slot. on restart the bios finds the card and loads the memory. then when windows starts the new hardware found wizard starts and asks for the cards driver.

you don't say what card you are trying to put in, it may need a direct power supply to work properly which is why it is not being detected.
Your PSU may not be up to the job, if the card is power hungry you may need to put a bigger one in..

It could also be, that the auto overrule of the integrated chip has hung for some reason. It has been known to happen before. Try update / flash your motherboard bios if possible..

When I did this on a Dell, I had to uninstall/disable the drivers for the on board graphics in the device manager in Windows as well as the BIOS changes
