pci vga card

by 22126998 In reply to pci vga card

Did Compaq say if there was a jumper on the MotherBoard to disable the Cirrus vga ? Did you also try Start/ControlPanel/Add New Hardware Dialog? I seem to remember that the 2000/4000 Compaqs were not 'auto-disable' boards so you should find a jumperon it to disable the onboard video. A helpful hint - always disable and remove drivers and devices while in "Safe-Mode".
