Help! Installation of a new Nvidia GPU

by sdgZF In reply to Thank You WDavison!

my problem is i want to install a Zotac brand Nvidia GeForce 7200 256MB DDR2 Memory GPU card. now the zotac manual says i should uninstall my current VGA card. Now i understand that my Foxconn motherboard has an on-board graphics capability and that i should disable it on the motherboard. is this as simple as opening up my PC casing and turning off a switch somewhere or should i go to Windows Device Manager, right click on the Intel(R) 82945gExpress Chipset Family and choose "Disable"? (or alternately right click the intel chipset, select properties, then go down to Device Usage and select "do not use this device (disable) ). please help!

Remove the Video Card from the PC. Restart the PC and go to the Device Manager in Windows, right-click the entry for the driver for your onboard graphics card and select Disable. Apply the changes and shut down your PC.

Boot the PC and enter the BIOS One of these keys should get you in.

F1
F2
DEL
ESC
F10

Tip: If your computer is a new computer and you are unsure of what key to press when the computer is booting, try pressing and holding one or more keys the keyboard. This will cause a stuck key error, which may allow you to enter the BIOS setup.. Go to the 'Advanced Features? page and select to 'Disable Onboard VGA?. The wording and location may vary according to your BIOS, but you should be able to find it. Press [F10] to save changes to the BIOS and exit.

Shutdown and insert the Video Card. Reconnect the Monitor to the new card.

Your PC should now boot recognising your new graphics card and prompt you to install the new drivers for it in Windows.

Eleven minutes is just cruising ...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to WDavison, hello, how were ...

I think my fastest was about 4 minutes.

As we scan around the TR board a new question may pop on just as we refresh our own browser display. If you spot it and can manage to answer quick enough, the time to the Original Poster getting a reply is mere minutes.

Of course it doesn't always work that way - due to the time differences around the World, some of us will be asleep when you first post your question. :)

by OldER Mycroft In reply to Hello Old Mycroft,

Just jump right in there.

I'm not foolish enough to deny that you could probably teach me a few things.

We are all knowledgeable of what we have studied/read, but experts in what we have experienced.

That includes YOU.
