Q: Adding aftermarket video card to board w/ onboard card

Hi,

I have this PC Chips K7 motherboard, it's got integrated video, but wow does it suck. I'm pretty sure there's a way that I can add my Radeon to the system, but I don't know how. I put it in today, and the screen didn't even start, probobly because of an irq conflict. What's the correct way to do this?

Preferred Solution: Adding aftermarket video card to board w/ onboard card

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.)

Hi,

A couple weeks ago I installed a video card and disabled my onboard card. Now how do I uninstall the video card (returning it for a better one) and go back to the onboard card? I'm waiting on the new card to get here and I just want to take this one out. I know I have to go to Device Manager/Display adapters and disable it, but I don't see my onboard card anywhere. Will the onboard 'come back' after I take the video card out? Thanks.

How did you disable the onboard video? I would bet you need to go into the bios and re enable the card because that had to be where you disabled it and do not disable any video cards in Device Manager. With newer systems, there really is no need to disable onbaord video as bios settings usually allow agp or pci-express when installed or onboard when none installed.

A:Installing a PCI Video Card and disabling onboard card

I am almost pretty sure that your hp should auto detect the new video card and default to it. At least that has been the case in everyone that i have installed. try that first. Just remember to connect your video cable to that card after you install it and not the original on board video card.

I have window 98se, pen3, 256mem, 12gb hd, intel mb/ model D815EEA that has onboard audio (the sound does not work at this point).

I want to add a sound card in the PCI slot. What would be the best way to do this? Do I need to do anything in the BIOS?

Thanks for any and all help

A:adding a sound card to a mb w/onboard audio

Yes, there should be an option in the BIOS to disable the onboard sound. You may need to do this so that there will not be a resourse conflict..ie.. IRQ, I/O...
Then after you disable it in the BIOS, then reboot, shut down, install card, reboot, go into BIOS, save changes and exit. Then, the PC will reboot. Watch on POST to see if the new sound card is seen... Then if it is, you may only need to install the drivers manually if plug and play doesn't pick it up as seen with the "New hardware found" wizard that should come to life on the initial boot after the new card is installed.

Trying to add a 6gb/s LSI Raid SAS9212-4i card so I can basically use a SSD as a single boot drive and get 6gb/s speeds.  Have used a cheap SATA 6gb/s card with decent results but those cards are fairly cheap and their performance isn't that great.  Installed the card in a PCI-E 8X slot and the extra 16X slot.Got to the onboard SAS controller and get a ROM - OUT OF MEMORY error.System will boot from the onboard SAS RAID 0 boot drive - no problem and will recognize the SSD drive on the PCI-E card LSI.  BUT you cannot get the OS to recognize the card to boot from the PCI-E card with the ONBOARD LSI controller enabled.I disabled the onboard LSI SAS controller, do not get the memory error and the PCI-E controller shows up when attempting to do a boot.  Shows the drive etc. SO - what am I missing - is the BIOS unable to handle a secondary SAS CARD or is it a problem with TWO LSI controllers being in the same system? When the onboard is enabled and you get the error and the sytem boots up the SSD on the PCI-E controller is pretty slow when you do a SSD test.  The sequential reads get in the 500 range and the writes are about 400+The problem is in the 4k writes - SUPER SLOW for some reason.  When I used the cheapo SATA 3 card the speeds were pretty much in spec.

Running Windows 7 on my XPS 8500 and decided to ditch integrated audio for an Asus Xonar DSX PCIe sound card. The instructions clearly recommend disabling integrated audio in bios first, but I insisted on disregarding. Inserted sound card, then installed driver CD. Wouldn't recognize sound card. Soooo, I disabled integrated audio in bios and reinstalled the driver CD. Magically, the Xonar DSX worked like a charm. Lesson learned!

This hardware question is about adding in an older NVidia graphics card to replace the onboard video.

One error I'm getting and computer power up is 'not getting signal' at the monitor from the onboard video.

A sample install of the add-in card to bypass that connection gave a typical blue screen with the message of a new piece of (something-- hardware software) is not recognized.

The motherboard has Radeon 4540 graphics on the board. The add-in card which is used is an Nvidia XFX gotten from a friend who is upgrading.

My question is this:

It is known that a hard disk can be migrated from one rig to another by modifying the driver in Device Manager. What this does is have Win7 make a new discovery of the hardware piece. Can something similar be done with video in Device Manager or the BIOS on this MSI 880GM-E41 model MS 7623?

Additionally, could a reinstall of Win7 adding in the proper Nvidia driver which I put on a cd solve the problem?

Or does the chipset simply not support Nvidia? I have looked at the specifications manual page and found nothing on it. The Radeon info comes from the Everest diagnostic program.

thanks for any replies

For video editing purposes, I bought an ASUS GT640 video card because it has two DVI outputs and an HDMI output. I plugged that sucker into my PCI express x16 slot, turned the computer on, and both monitors and the TV said "NO SIGNAL" even though the fan on the video card was spinning. I ended up staying up too late last night researching the issue, and it appears to be that the system BIOS isn't recognizing the GT640's video BIOS, so it does not think a video card is plugged in.
On any other BIOS I've ever worked on, I could disable the onboard video, but to my dismay, no such option exists in the XPS 8300 BIOS.
My XPS 8300 works fine with the two other older video cards that I plugged into that slot, so initially I thought perhaps it was because I was using a newer video card. So I plugged the GT640 into an older Inspiron 518 (circa 2008) just to see what happens. The GT 640 worked fine in the old computer! Which would be great, except that the old computer has 4gb of RAM and a core 2 duo. The 8300 I bought has an i7 and 16gb of RAM, which makes a huge difference when editing HD video. I also briefly installed the card in my wife's XPS 8500 - and it works fine there! It seems that the only computer it does not work with is the one computer I happened to buy last month from the Dell Outlet.
Apparently this has been an issue with other video cards and the XPS 8300. I've seen rumors about nvidia developing a workaround involving changes to the ... Read more

its not a problem, infact catalyst control center is crossfiring your card with the onboard one, its not a problem and if you disable it you may get a performance drop

Hi, and thanks in advance for reading this.  At the shop I work at, we'd like to run three monitors on this Pavilion.  Nothing crazy in terms of video requirements - normal desktop stuff and YouTube videos. The onboard Radeon doesn't have all the ports I needed, so I picked up a GeForce 8600GS card from EVGA with 1gb of onboard memory (thinking that I'd just run the 3rd screen off of it). Now it seems the onboard Radeon is disabled.  I get two screens lit up properly when they're plugged into the EVGA card, but nothing when I connect them to the onboard ports. I assume one of three things has happened:1. The onboard card is automatically disabled when a discrete card is installed.2. I can't run these particular AMD and nVidia cards in the same box (which would be my screwup, I realize).3. Something I haven't thought of yet. Anyone know what's wrong and how I'd go about getting what I want (ideally both cards active)?

I tried to search in bios for an option which can let me to disable the onboard video card but i couldnt find anything,also the laptop is running always in gaming mode, so there is no power save mode to make the laptop to use the intel gpu to save power This problem isnt only in games,its also when i playing HD videos, the video is really not fluent at all, im sure even there the laptop is using the intel gpu.I tried to disable the intel gpu from Device manager, and windows restarted,and then the nvidia GPU driver wasnt working anymore. When i wanted to reinstall it, a message appeared,telling me that i must install an Intel graphics card driver first. So these two GPUs are linked to each other, but how to make one GPU as default?

Greetings all,

I have a Gateway computer, 2 GB ram, Win 7, and I was using an nvidia geforce 8600 gts video card.

It's been working great for moderate gaming like WoW and Starcraft 2. I started getting distorted screens suddenly that got worse and worse and eventually always looked like this .

I did try looking for new drivers, but I don't remember if I had done any updating immediately before.

If I take the card out, the distortion and lines go away, but WoW will flicker on the odd occasion and then sometimes the screen will go black and it will shut off.

Maybe a driver issue? I've taken some looks at my CPU temp with Speedfan immediately after it shut down and it wasn't bad, around 50 which is a bit warm but nothing extreme.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Possibly relevant: To my memory there was a Windows Update that was display related recently. Now the card is out, I get error Code 80072F8F when I try to install this update. Maybe because the card is now gone?

Help!!

I cant get into bios because I cant see anything on the screen in the first place, unless I try to do it blind.
Any ideas?

We unplugged our hp for about a week and when we plugged it back in the power supply fried (making all sorts of horrifying fan grinding noises! ), we found another one for it and it's the right voltage but when we turn it on the computer attempts to boot (it beeps like it's supposed to) but the video card doesn't send any signals to the monitor. Does anyone know how to disable the onboard ati rage turbo pro video card so I can use an expansion slot one?

Hello, I'm having problems disabling a Dell Dimension 2400 Intel Integrated Extreme 3D graphics card and installing a new Radeon 9200 SE card. Every attempt to attach the new card results in a power up w/ nothing being displayed on screen (no BIOS or anything).

Is there a safe way to disable the on-board graphics card, that (in case the new card has problems) we can fall back to it without damaging the system? The new card is PCI by the way.

Thank You,
DrakeonX
 

A:Disable onboard video & Install new card?

You can try this from Dell

Dell2400

Please let us know if it works because the last time this came up it didn't appear to work. I also saw a post on one of the Dell forums about a BIOS update allowing you to disabling onboard video. Don't know if this is true so I'll look into it.

I just installed Windows XP Plus and for the games to work it requires 16 megs of video memory for it to work.

So got a new video card with 64 megs of memory, disabled the onboard video card in device manager, and installed new card.

Now with the new card installed in device manager it shows the onboard video disabled, and the new video card enable with 64 megs of memory but windows xp "PLUS" does not recognize the 64 megs of ram for the video card.

Does anyone know how to over come this problem

As always any help appreciated.

I have a 1 yr-old Dell Dimension 5150 with on-board graphics and sound. I have recently purchased a GeForce 6600 128MB PCI-E graphics card to try and beef it up a bit.

I have inserted the card correctly into the PCI-E slot but my problem is in installing the driver. I'm certain that I have downloaded the correct driver, but as I run the set-up program I get the following error message:

The NVIDIA setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit.

And that's it - all my hopes of playing a decent game dashed at the first hurdle. Is there anyone who may be able to help?

Many thanks

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...

Hello, I have salvaged some old computer parts in hopes of making myself another spare computer. I have set up a Gigabyte GA-6VTXE-A mobo with a Pentium 3. The motherboard does NOT have on board video so I have found a couple of fairly old agp video cards. My question is... how am I going to set up my pc if I can't get my monitor going? Its obvious that I don't have the drivers for these cards installed because I would need to be able to SEE my screen in order to do that. The monitor seems like it turns off and one with the computer but why is there nothing on the screen? Any ideas?

What are my options? Is there any way to set up a generic driver just to get me going? If so... how if I can't see what I'm doing? What are my other options? Please let me know some ideas!

Thank you
