Q: disabling on board video

I have a gigabyte model ga-5smm motherboard with onboard video. I want to install a pci video card and don't know what to change in the bios to disable the onbard video.
can anyone help?

Preferred Solution: disabling on board video

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.)

A: disabling on board video

Most of them are pretty easy just go through all the options in the bios until you see it.. Write down any changes you make so you can put them back..

Remember to go into device manager and delete the old video card there to then reboot dissable then replace...

All bioses can be different so it is tuff to tell you how..

I have an "older" PC Chips M747 motherboard with an 8MB SiS 6326 AGP video chipset on-board. It's been good, but the flight simulator I use appears as though it's beginning to desire faster video, plus my kids use quite a few graphic intensive art programs. I have an open PCI slot(no AGP slot), & was thinking about getting a little faster PCI card for this computer. Here's the rub. According to the manual, there does not appear to be any jumpers whereby I can disable the SiS chipset, in order to install a card. PC Chips appears to have absolutely no interest in answering e-mail, so I'm here asking if any of you "brains" out there could tell if & how I can disable the SiS, & install a PCI card, & do you think this is feasible with this older system(I may pop a PII 450 in, which will help some I'm sure, but I would still only have 8 MB of video.(I know, buy a newer, faster computer, yes, but when I do, the kids get it). Someone mentioned I might be able to do this in CMOS, but I thought I'd ask first.

A:Disabling on-board video

Your AGP is in most cases going to be faster than any PCI card you can put in there. Most likely it is your drivers that are in need of upgrading...maybe DirectX also. If you are intent on changing it, the setting you are looking for is probably in the BIOS. Some motherboards disable the onboard one when another one is plugged in. Look in the BIOS first.

I am trying to help my friend get his Emachine back up and going and I'm running into a little snag. When we turn it on, it has power and such but no display. I couldn't seem to locate any jumpers to disable the onboard video and when I put a known, working video card into it, it doesn't even act like its there. I was wondering if anyone knew of a non-bios way to disable the onboard video or if maybe it's something else altogether that I should be looking at. Here are the specs on the machine:

CPU: AMD Sempron™ 3300+ Processor (64-bit)1
(2GHz, 1600MHz System Bus, 128KB L2 cache)
Operating System: Genuine Microsoft® Windows® XP Home (SP2)1
Chipset: NVIDIA® nForce™® 410
Memory: 256MB DDR (1 × 256MB), 400MHz (PC3200)
Hard Drive: 100GB (7200rpm, 2MB cache)32
Optical Drive: 48x CD-RW/DVD combo drive
Media Reader: 8-in-1 digital media manager (Secure Digital™ (SD), smart media, micro drive, memory stick, memory stick pro, compact flash, mulitimedia card, USB 2.0)
Video: NVIDIA® GeForce® 6100 GPU
up to 128MB of shared video memory
PCI-Express® (PCI-E x16) slot available
Sound: 6-channel (5.1) AC'97 audio

Thanks in advance for your help.

A:Disabling On Board Video/Emachine T3304

I do not believe that you will find a "non BIOS" way to avoid the onboard video. If the MB/BIOS is set up to automatically defer to the add on card then it would have done so. Assuming that everything is working as it should, you likely will have to boot to BIOS, make the change, save/exit and reboot.

Can someone please guide me thru' this procedure? I know as far as "press Del key on start up" & look for "on board sound" then disable, but would feel happier with a step by step guide.

A:Disabling on board sound win 7 64 bit

You would boot into Setup (Bios) at bootup you should see a message to press a certain key to enter Setup, for many that is the Del key. Once in the Bios, look for Onboard Audio, using your Arrow key, choose to Disable it. If you cannot find it. then Boot the computer and go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter.

Need to disable Trident Blade3D/MVP4 onboard graphics (in a Compaq Presario 7470 running windows 98SE) to install ATI Xpert 128 graphics card. Compaq tech help was anything but- they gave three different answers. Before doing anything, I would like a definite solution from someone who may have actually seen a computer before! If possible, please give me a step by step procedure (I am not incredibly computer literate- considering a new job with Compaq!). One more thing, nobody can seem to answer this either simple as it may be- should the moniter be plugged into the new output from the card or the old one upon first boot up after installation? Thank you for any help.

A:Disabling on board graphics

Here's how it goes (wait for someone else to confirm this though):

Make sure new video card is not installed
1. Restart system
2. At the beginning screen with the RAM count, hit F2 (i believe that's what it is for Compaq's). If the screen says something along the lines of 'Hit <key> to entere Setup', that's what you want to hit.
3. Now, you'll have to do a little digging in here, but look for a menu along the lines of 'Integrated Peripherals' or 'System Devices'. Look for an option to disable on-board video. (also, you might need to change an option concerning First Boot-up display if your new card is AGP)
4. Save changes and exit
5. Shutdown system and install new video card
6. Plug monitor into new video card
7. When Windows asks for drivers, give it to them (what might help is before step 1, download latest onto the desktop. After Windows gets its drivers and reboots, install the new ones).

I've been having some issues with BSOD's occurring over the last couple of days which consistently print out a specific message "KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED igdkmd64.sys" which from what I understand is somehow related to my default display adapter Intel(R) HD Graphics 530.

I've attempted doing updates, rollbacks, re-installations, etc and nothing has worked. Is there some way I can simply disable that specific card and allocate my dedicated graphics card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M as the only running video card?

I did try the simple process of going into Device Manager and disabling my 530 but it caused some weird resolution glitches.

Is there a proper way I can disable my 530 in an attempt to see if it stops these random crashes from occurring again, and if so can someone please give me instructions on how I can do that.

I can drop into CMOS and disable Audio Codecs for Realtek AC'97 but should I also remove the Realtek AC'97 driver from Device Manager? Are there any more drivers that I would have to remove?

Also, an independent sound card plugged into an on-board-designed mother board wouldn't require any other wiring attachments to the DVD CD drive or motherboard, would it? I could just plug the sound card into a PCI slot let 'er go?

First, my specs. P51 with Xeon processor, 64GB of ram, Win 10 Pro, NVIDIA Quadro M2200 Video, Intel HDGraphics P630 Video, Docking Station.  I have two external monitors via my docking station, one on the VGA other on the HDMI port. I also have two monitors via Sabrent USB to VGA devices. While I was out of town last week, Windows delivered an update to the Intel P630 graphics. Got home, put my P51 in the docking station. Bam, video driver keeps crashing, reverting to the basic driver and disabling all my external monitors.  I finally tracked it to the Intel P630 driver, I can uninstall it and reboot and it works fine for a while, but then after a reboot it crashes again.  I've tried reinstalling the NVIDIA driver from both their site and the Lenvo support site, no change. I looked for the P630 driver, but couldn't find it on the Lenovo site, at least as an independant download. It may be included in some other download. I did try getting the P630 from the Intel site, but what I downloaded said it wasn't compaitble with my machine.  Right now it has the same image on the internal monitor and the two monitors hooked to the docking station. Yes, the exact same image on three monitors, which shouldn't be possible under Windows. The two monitors coming in over USB seem to be OK and not have the "same desktop everywhere" issue.  I actually have two docking stations with external monitors, I have an office upstairs in my h...

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.

Yet another problem needing a solution. I was given yet another PC assembled by my brother (part of the problem). I have everything working except for needing better video. The on-board video only gives me the options of 2 or 16 color @640 x 480 pixel . I obviously need better graphics capability for many of the programs and games we would be using. I have a PCI video card left from a former AGP upgrade on another system that I think should work. I need someone to walk me thru the procedures to deactivate the on board video and install and activate the PCI replacement. All I know about the mother board is what the owners manual tells me. I see no specific instructions on this particular procedure.

I have a new Dell 700 LXE

I have added 128M memory and an ATI 16M 3d card. after adding the 3D card I went into the device manager and selected the disable box in the existing 4MB onboard agp video(810 chipset) the ATI software seemed to load ok and I play a lot of games,some games however do not perform as well as I expected. I have been told that changing BIOS/CMOS may be necessary. Dell won't help me as they did not sell me the 3D card.(they do not sell a pci bus 3Dcard)

there is no jumper to disable agp video,no conflicts are shown in the device manager, and of course there are no agp slots.:confused

I do not have a clue how to change bios or even how to find it and pretty much need step by step help

A:disabling agp video for pci 3d card

Most modern systems with intrgrated graphics are set up so they auto-disable the integrated graphics if an add-on video card is present. I can't speak for your particular system, but that is usually the case.
If you want to poke around in the BIOS, you need to follow the directions on the screen as the computer first starts up. For example, my 'puter says, "DEL to enter setup". So, if I hit the DEL key as it is first starting up, I get into "setup" mode, which is another name for BIOS. I strongly recommend that if you do go into your BIOS settings, that you view the various options only. Don't change any settings without knowing before-hand what the settings are for. When you're done looking around in BIOS, there will be an option to "exit without saving changes". When you select that, your computer will exit BIOS and re-start itself.

I'm sorry if this has been covered before, but I'm having a problem with my video. I have a HP 6640-C with a voodoo 3 3000. I've disabled the onboard video in windows, but I really think I need to switch the jumper on the mobo to fully disable it. Granted my HP is only running at 500mghz and 120 RAM, I would still think my Voodoo 3 could handle Quake 3, but it's totally unplayable. Very jerky. Anyway, if anyone has access to a HP 6640-c mobo diagram, specifically the onboard video jumper, I would GREATLY appreciate it.

if i disable the video card in the device manager window will it really disable it with out going into the bios.

A:video card disabling


As far as Windows is concerned it will be disabled, as far as the Hardware is concerned, not really.

That is to say, if you rebooted a different Op/SYS, or even as a different Window's USER (and the disable event was NOT done for ALL USERS), the hardware would be available.

However, if you did this via the BIOS, it would affect every USER and every Op/SYS that ran on the machine..until the BIOS was changed back.

I have an i5-3570, though the mobo (ASRock P67 Pro3) doesn't support on-chip video. Just what I wanted, it keeps the CPU settings simpler. But I'm using a Ye Olde Radeon HD5770 video card with it.

I noticed something slightly irksome. I don't want the card using any system RAM. It's got 1GB built in on the card, so for me, it doesn't need anything more, yet there appears to be the following:

Display adapter type ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series
Total available graphics memory 8941 MB
Dedicated graphics memory 1024 MB
Dedicated system memory 0 MB
Shared system memory 7917 MB
Display adapter driver version 8.850.0.0

I don't want it to touch my system memory. I want to disable the ability for the card to scoff up that 7917MB. I want the card to only use what it has, nothing else. Can this be done?

On to the problem. I recently purchased a Sapphire 9800 SE card because the previous card died. I have a Geforce 2 in there for the time being and everything works fine (except poor video quality =) So I hook up the new video card, (previous nvidia drivers are uninstalled) and when I boot up, none of the USB ports work. This is a slight problem because the keyboard/mouse/printer are all USB. I tried various things (ps2 adapter gets the mouse working) etc. The only thing I can think of, is that there is not enough power for both - but it is a decent power supply (antec trupower 330). I will not be able to work on the computer again until tomorrow, but I would definitely like to have an answer to the problem or a place to start to try and fix. Please ask any and all questions you have to help fix the problem, i'll be checking the forum regularly! Thanks guys/gals!

I have a HP Pavillion 510w, the has an onboard video graphics, I have installed a G-Force4 PCI video card. The new video card works great. The problem I am having is will my Madden NFL 2004 game, the game works great on the inital install, but as soon as the computer is restarted, and I try to load the game it hangs on the main screen. I have contact EA sports, and they think that the onboard video is the problem, since everthing else is compatible with the game.

The problem is that in the bios, there is no option to disable the onboard video. The only options are to allocate 1mb or 512K to the video, no disable.

I disable it in the device manager, but it still is interferring with the new card/game. I checked the moberboard and there are no jumbers to diable it that way. I called HP and they don't seem to have a clue with how to resolve this problem. I have updated all of the current video drivers, and there is no bios update available.

Does anyone know how I can disable the onbaord video.

A:Need help disabling onboard video graphics

In many of these types of systems, you cannot disable the on-board video.

Detection of the AGP card will usually be all thats needed for the system to ignore the on-board chipset, but thats different to disabling it.

my friend has a dell dimension 2350. im trying to disable the onboard video because she got an ati xtasy 128mb pci card. I followed these instructions on the dell site:


After doing that, right when booting up, the old card works (and the new one doesn't)..then the monitor goes blank with an orange light when the dell logo supposed to appear. so i switch the monitor cable to the new card..and the screen comes back. Then right before the desktop, the new one stops working (with a blank screen again) and I have to switch to the old one..which pretty much works.

it seems the system is trying to switch between cards upon booting..and decides to go with the old one. i'm thinking it's a conflict. but i'm afraid to delete the driver of the old one.. i'm afraid the system won't boot up at all (with a blank screen). i tried to get a bios update..but i need a floppy drive for that, wich the system doesn't have (the dell site says i need to boot to dos mode on xp and run the update from there..but xp has no dos mode i think). So anyone have any suggestions? I emailed dell on the bios issue..and they don't support upgrading cards. thanks.

Try installing the mobo's chipset drivers first then do the video/agp drivers.

I have an ARK Logic 2000-pv2m video board. I don't want to install it until I can determine what the resolution is. I've search PCWORLD, PCMAG, ZDNET, CNET, and the ARK LOGIC sites. I can find no specs on this item. Apparently ARK LOGIC has been sold but I don't know to whom. Can anyone help?

I think I have a problem with my on-board video but I'm not 100% sure. Last night while on my computer, my monitor would go black and the power light on the monitor would go from green to amber. This happened several times. The only thing I could do was to turn off the computer and turn it back on. It's an Emachine and I don't know if I could disable the on-board video. But that doesn't matter because I don't have any available slots open to install a video card anyway. What do you think the problem could be?

It could be the graphics chipset is over-heating, but that would be unusual in a system that has it onboard, as those GPUs are pretty low powered. Unless you over-taxing it with a high-power game or similar at the time?

Its more likely that the connection between PC and monitor is dodgy. Check that the monitor lead is really securely fixed in place, that there are no bent pins either end of the connector lead, and also that the connector to the motherboard is also secure.

Has anyone trodden on the monitor data cable, or could it have got damaged in some other way?

Hi everyone

I have a bit of a problem. I own an HP Pavilion 6350 and I just purchased a new video card for it (ATI Radeon 32 MB PCI.) My system lists that the current onboard card is a SiS 5597/5598.

When I plug my monitor into the new card, my monitor does not come on. From doing some research, I believe I am supposed to "disable" the onboard video card so that the system will use the new one.

Any ideas on just how I should do that?

BTW...I looked all over the HP support site (if that is what u want to call it) and found nothing. Also, I searched this forum and found a lot of people in very similar situations but not exactly this one so unfortunately, the advice there didn't help much.

I would appreciate any help. Thx in advance...

Usually this is a setting in the bios or a particular jumper on the motherboard. I am sure someone can give you specifics if you can tell us what motherboard you have.

Well, for the past few hours I've been trying to reinstall my Nvidia GeForce2 Mx400 PCI, since I took it with me during my last trip to insert into that resident computer. While I was gone, I reenabled the onboard video of my HP 4530, which is an SiS 530. What I first did was attempt to uninstall the drivers for the SiS, and then disable it, and reinstall my vid card. But the drivers wouldn't uninstall, because they weren't made to be uninstalled, so I removed them manually, by taking them out of Windows' database. I now have the onboard down to the standard pci graphics adapter. I installing the GeForce after removing the onboard from device manager, but then neither of them work and the computer doesnt initialize. I can't disable the onboard by normal means (DV properties), so how can I disable it and successfully install back my precious GeForce?

Hi! I'd like to completely disable the onboard video on my Dell Dimension L700cx. It has Intel 810e chipset. The BIOS does not give the option to disable the video, just to set the primary display to be PCI or Onboard. I have set it to PCI, and am using my Radeon 7000 PCI as my display, but the Intel graphics still show up as a disabled component in Device Manager, and some of the parts of the old video supersede the new card (ie, the system still uses the old video acceleration, rather than from the Radeon, and the memory on the video card is unused). Since I seem to be unable to configure the BIOS to disable the video, I was wondering if there was a way to modify the Dell BIOS to permit it, or else to physically disable the video on the actual motherboard. Any advice?

Not as far as I know.

If there is no option under BIOS or no jumper on the motherboard (seldom seen these days) then its stays there.

Thats actually quite a common issue with the cheaper brand name PCs.

You probably need to update the drivers for it. Go to the HP website for your specific HP model and see what integrated SIS chip the motherboard uses. HP will also have a driver available for download which you can use. Or you can then go to the SIS website and download the latest driver which be newer then the HP provided driver.
