Disable the Onboard Video in the BIOS

by LarryD4 In reply to video card

Their is a point during boot up that your PC asks if you want enter setup by pressing a key. Usually delete or an F key.

Within your BIOS you will have the option to turn off the onboard video or you will have a switch that will prioritize you video card which should be set to PCI.

Horns of a dilemma

by JamesRL In reply to video card

Normally you would bring up the BIOS and change the video there from integrated to PCI/AGP/PCI Express, save and exit reconnect to the new card and reboot. In other words you have to have video to change video.

Some MBs will automatically switch if they sense a video card in the video card slot. But you might still run into problems if you didn't already install the drivers. What to do to be sure, is try to boot in safe mode. Boot the machine and press F8 to get into the menu which allows you to chose safe mode. If that works then you can add the nVidia drivers from CD or download them from the net.
