i used that before and it couldnt get any information on my graphics card or mobo for some reason

i think my comp has inbuilt graphics i heard somewhere that you have to disable them but it sounds a bit risky

if you indeed have onboard graphics you need to disable them first but it's mot for the faint hearted and you will still need to know if the card you have chosen is compatible...
