On-Board Video problem

By way_wms ·
I have a P3, socket 370, which uses the GFX PRO chipset with an on-board 3D 128-bit AGP Graphics accelerator. The problem is that my monitor displays black and grey lines across the screen. I tried to see if it was the monitor and switch with a different monitor but it still diplays the same thing even after adjusting the monitor settings. I tried to install a new PCI video card. It recognizes the new card but it is using the same IRQ as the on-board video IRQ 11. There is no setting in the BIOS or jumper settings to disable it. I set it to use PCI for the display but it just continues to use the on-board video and has it as a secondary video. I also remove it from the Device Manager and install the new card but nothing shows up on the screen. If I switch the cable back to the on-board video I get video and it askes me to install software for the new PCI hardware. Can anyone help. Thanks.

I had a simular problem with on board video. I was fortunate in when changing the setting in BIOS for Int Display from AGP to PCI it fixed the issue. Have you tried going in to device manager and setting a different IRQ for the PCI video? Also, you may be able to check with manufacture of the computer or motherboard and see if there is a BIOS update. That may fix the issue with disabling the onboard video.

Check the motherboard manual if available,it will show how to disable the onboard video

Boot computer and press designated key to enter bios,check the column for Advanced or any configuration setting where you locate the video setting,highlight on the video by right-clicking ,this should give you a menu to choose able or disable video.

you can try Windows update. it may have newer drivers for the onboard video. It's a long shot, but it had an update for my Dell's IBM chipset and before I installed it, I checked it out and sure enough, It was an update from IBM and it worked great. It's worth a shot. At least your PCI card works and you aren't computing "Blind" from memory(I had to do that once, years ago)
you can try Driversguide.com, too.
Good Luck
