Disabling Onboard Gfx

  [email protected]© 18:07 25 Jan 2010

I have installed a PCI Gfx card. The PC is not recognising it so I think I have to disable the onboard gfx in the bios. How do I do this please? Thanks.

If the card hasn't all ready deactivated on-board graphics,you need to go into the BIOS.Usually pressing F2 or DEL before the PC boots will access the BIOS.

Just be careful when in the BIOS

Also is the card inserted correctly?,and the video lead connected to the card port and not the MB port?

Does the new found hardware wizard appear?

How old is the system? Is it a PCIe or an old PCI card

You can disable the onboard gpu in device manager,are there extra connections required to power your new GPU,and are they plugged in if yes.Also is the power supply enough for your new card.
What are your new card specs,and what is the power supply you have,in wattage.

make and model of motherboard would help if roddypoddy's suggestion of disabling via device manager still does not disable it.

PS look in add and remove programs for the old graphics software, also.
