Installing AGP on board w/onboard video

By spiritfierce ·
A friend of mine has a HP prebuilt computer and it came with onboard video- my Q: is how do I install his new TNT2 m64 video card properly? His monitor plugs into the onboard connector and attempts to simply install the agp card in the slot (yes- itDOES have an actual agp slot) have been to no avail- it seems like the system doesn't recognize the agp- he is running win98, a celeron 433 w/64mb sdram- shouldnt it be plug 'n play? kinda stumped because every comp I have owned or built had no onboard video. any help appreciated

Please check your HP user manual if there's a jumper to disable the on-board video board. Or just check the jumper / switch settings on the board layout. Usually it'is located near the display chipset.

Typically ther is a setting in the bios to disable the onboard video. Turn the computer on and the press del or f2, whatever it says at the bottom of the screen during the post test. there should be one to disable both sound and video. if you tell me exactly what mother board it is I can probably give you more exact directions.

Boot Computer,when Startup Screen appears,look in lower left corner and press appropiate key to enter Setup

On the Configuration Panel,select Advanced menu,look for onboard video and then use arrow keys to select and then use appropiate key to open the menu,which will give you the option to disable,select,exit and save changes
Reboot

Now PnP should recognize the installed card with

New Hardware and start install wizard

If you can't find a way to disable the onboard vid card through the bios or jumper settings then you can try to disable it in Device manager in Control panel.Open Control panel then open System then click on the Device manager tab. Click on the display adapters and both your vid cards should be seen. Double click on the on board card and check disable in this hardware profile. Shut down the computer and make sure that the monitor is plugged in to the new card before you restart.
This should help you, if not e-mail me at electrojolt@hotmail.com and I'll advise further.

Godspeed,

I have had similar problems where the driver installation would not take unless I did it by going to Display>Settings>Advanced, then click Adapter and then the Change Adapter button. Try it.
