Q: how do i disable the ATI on-board video so my nvidia 550ti video card will run my gam

hi, yes, my motherboard has ATI on board video and it's still on. I have a Nvidia geforce 550 ti video card that i much prefer to run my games.

I'm having a video confusion problem in my games where i can't see some of the video. I was told by the maker of the MOD for the specific game that i need to disable the ATI on board video so there wont be any more conflicts with my Nvidia video card.

How do i disable the on board video on my motherboard. the motherboard is the following:

MSI 790FX-GD70

Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I would like to stop using the Nvidia card and use the built-in Intel graphics instead.  In older computers, simply plugging  the monitor into the computer's video port (not the Nvidia card's) made this change.  In the 8910, plugging into the computer's port does nothing - the monitor remains shut off.  Do I have to remove the Nvidia card in order to switch to Intel graphics or will simply disabling the Nvidia card do it?

It can only be one of the two enabled at a time. For most systems, as soon as you put the pci-card in the slot, it disables the on board video.

Hi all,
I have a dell here with on board video that has failed (someone literally pulled the connector off of the motherboard). The system should be fine otherwise, therefore I was wondering if I could put in a old style PCI video card into one of the PCI slots (it does not have a video slot) and have it work. Or would the onboard video cause conflicts? I know that with some BIOS's you can turn off the onboard video, and this is usually a option if the motherboard has a video slot available (agp, PCI Express). Of course this motherboard does not and is a dell cheapo.

I am thinking it will probably work but thought I would ask before getting a card for it.

A:Can a dell use a pci video card if it has on board video?

Will a PCI video card work? Possibly!

Attached is a pic of a board where the Sub-D connector was pulled from the board, and when it was pulled it shorted out the board, and a PCI card would not work.

I have a PCI video card that I want to install on my motherboard. I am having a problem disabling the existing on-board video.

My system is:

PC Chips M758LMR v 1.0 MB on board sound/ video
256 Meg RAM
20 Gig HD
Celeron 900 mhz Processor FGA-2 #BX80526F900128SL633

There is not a place in the device manager to disable the SIS 620 Video.

If I put the video card in a slot(there are 3) the computer will not boot up. If I remove the SIS 620 device, windows reinstalls it when I boot up again. I cannot find any program to remove related to video or video drivers.

It dosen't appear that there is a jumper on the board related to video in the manual I found on the internet. The manual does state that a Video card can be installed.

I have searched the forum and found out that this is a common problem, but didn't find anything specific for my motherboard.

Thanks, Al

I have a Compaq Presario 5000 (5BW160) that I'm trying to install an ATI Radeon 7000 PCI card in. The only problem is that there are no jumpers or BIOS options to disable the on-board video. I have searched Compaq's Tech Support site and tried all of there suggestions to no avail. When I remove the on-board adapter in Device Manager and then reboot the machine with the monitor connected to the ATI card, the computer boots up in 16 colors with the lowest resolution setting. Then when I try to install the driver, the installation fails. It seems it is using the ATI to display, but only wants to install the driver for the on-board Intel 810. Does anyone have any ideas on how to disable the on-board display adapter? Thank you.

I just put together my first P4. Its also my first computer with XP Pro.

I didn't realize the MB I chose had on board video. It worried me because I can't find anywhere to disable it.. Since the board does have an AGP slot I setup an ATI All In Wonder 9600xt thinking plug and play would deal with it.

Everything appears fine but should I even been worried about the IRQ conflicts?

Is there any way at all to disable the video? There is no mention of this in the manual and I can't find anything in the bios, no jumpers that I can see, nothing. Should I care? I'm kinda old school and I remember having to deal with irq conflicts 'back in the day'

Looking for information on a graphics problem
I have an MSI N460GTX Cyclone 1GB video card.
It has given problems in my computer since the computer was new. BSOD’s, artifacts, glitches etc. The card was returned three times, once by itself and twice in the entire computer.
The computers onboard video works perfectly but of course will not run Witcher II or Crysis II.
A temporary replacement video card (Radeon 5450) works perfectly but of course will not run the games.
I assumed a bad video card or possibly a conflict with the NVIDIA card and the motherboard (I’m grabbing at straws). The MB onboard video is AMI.
This morning I removed the video card (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275) from my wife’s computer and put in the MSI N460GTX Cyclone card. It is working perfectly in her computer.
I put the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275 in my computer and it works perfectly in my computer.
So now, the N460 apparently is good, the MB must not have a problem with an NVIDIA card. What could be causing the problem with that one card in my computer?
My PSU is much more than adequate for the 460 card. I have tried two different video drivers including the latest (280.26) and still the problems exist.
My system specs are:
AMD Phenom II 1055T

And since its based on the SiS315: http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/video/display/sis315.html

SIS graphics are not even close to being in the same league as ATI and NVidia dedicated video cards. Even the older Radeon 8500/9xxxx or Geforce 3/4/FX series cards will outperform it in almost every game and without using 64MB of your system memory and at better quality.

If you just put 98 in and haven't loaded the drivers for your motherboard, that is the problem. If you have the disks for the MB, install the drivers using it.

Hey im thinking of upgrading my pc so i can just hook it up hdmi to my tv. Ive looked around and my mobo only supports pci cards, which when i checked the hdmi out cards were a bit pricey. It also has one agp 4x slot but cant find a decent card in that department.

Should i get a new MOBO instead with an integrated hdmi out because another benefit of that would be a better CPU and ram support (mine currently says max memory is 1 gig on crucial, but i looked up the serial and says it supports 2) I do want a faster and stronger rig but dont know if all my components would matche up with a new board.

What would i need to look for in terms of choosing either of these options. My case apparently supports uATX (micro).

A:Upgrading Mother Board/video Card

RELEVANCY SCORE 77.2

So recently I got a new monitor assuming that something is wrong with my old one. But the same problem occurs, my monitor still goes blank! Well, ever since I switched my video card (same time I got my old monitor) I was experiencing that problem. People at the store are no help at all since they are so clueless!

So I came to this conclusion, its either my video card that's experiencing problems or my mother board is getting out dated or whatsoever. (I got it back in 2003 and its Pentium 4 hyper-threading) My current mother board doesn't have a monitor slot on the pentium, only has a slot where the video card is. I don't think that could be a problem because when I had my old video card, I never experienced any problems. Please help.
 

A:Video card or mother board issue?

Youre going to have to be a little more specific about the problem. When does the screen go blank? What type of video card are you running? And a Pentium 4 w/ HT is by no means outdated.

I'm trying to troubleshoot this laptop for somebody, I don't have a lot of experience with laptops. I'm getting a lot of video lag when streaming movies on sites like Netflix. It runs fine at first but then it starts to bog down. The computer runs fine until I try and use the video card more then a tiny bit. This only happens when I'm streaming videos or trying to play any sort of game. I ran a memtest and a hardware benchmark and everything seems to check out. Is it possible that the on-board memory for the GPU has went bad? That's the only thing I could think of, how can I test it? Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

It's an Asus u50f if that helps.

Edit: Before I get any replies I should note that I've done all the basic things I know how to do. I know the on-board video card is rubbish and can't be expected to play any high end games, I'm not trying to play Skyrim or anything. I can't even stream Netflix videos properly or anything that is even remotely a little bit stressful on the video card. Also the drivers are completely up to date. I should also let you know that the motherboard was recently replaced by Best Buy (where she bought the laptop). I'm not exactly sure what happened with it, I'm guessing it just burned up or something.

If you motherboard has a PCI express slot on the motherboard then yes. If you can't find the manual for you board just open up the computer and look.

Computer is only two months old.  Screen will lock up and show multi-colored pixels on entire screen.  At times, screen will just freeze.  Can't use keyboard commands or mouse to restart the computer, so I am forced to use computer on/off button to reboot. Installed a new graphic card on the motherboard and diabled the on-board graphic card in device manager.  Computer screen is still freezing. Are there setting in the bios that have to be disabled also so the new video card will work? Could this be some other hardware issue other than the graphics card? Called HP support, but was not helpful. Any help would be appreciated. loucille

Hi, Am working with a PC with a new monitor and an ASUS P4S8X-X system board. When restarting, sometimes (over 50%) the monitor just doesn't make the connection, i.e. a black screen though you can hear the box do its thing. When this occurs, there is no display during any part of the boot process, not even a logo screen. You just keep restarting it and then it works OK. Haven't troubleshooted something like this before so I have a question. . . Would it be worth purchasing a new Video Card? I cannot produce any kind of a 'short' in the monitor port connection and have cleaned and reinstalled the video card. All seems to be in good working order. Have you heard of the on/off button doing this? Its a P4, 256 MB RAM, 60 GB HD. I clean installed Windows XP Pro from Windows 2000 Pro. It was having this problem for the past year or so. Any ideas would be very well recieved. Thanks
