Preferred Solution: Enabling onboard graphics/Disabling graphics card method

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Enabling onboard graphics/Disabling graphics card method

That is just how you should do that, it's unremarkable.

Should not be a problem at all, it's routine, you could add another card later and be just fine after disabling on-board again.

Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone could teach me how to re-enable my onboard graphics card. I have a 8600GT installed in my PCIE slot and since it's damaged through displaying green/purple artifacts I want to disable it so that I wouldn't be forced to restart my computer manually everytime the artifacts appear; gets extremely annoying at some point. My onboard graphics card is a ATI x1250, I was wondering if a weak card like that can play 720p videos? I'm aware that games are out of the picture indefinitely, but I want to be able to work in photoshop and watch 720p videos. Thanks.

Hey guys,

I'm trying to do dual monitors at work.. and running into problems. I thought (and pretty sure) I can use my onboard graphic card (intel i752) and my AGP card (TNT2), but it's not working. Apparently, when an AGP card is plugged into my motherboard, it disables the onboard graphics. Does anyone know of a way to reverse this and enable onboard graphics? An option is not under the bios for it... I'm using Windows 2000...

Thanks!

A:Enabling Onboard Graphics

First off, please give detailed specs about your PC. What OS are you running? Removing the graphics card just because its getting hot and switching to the onboard adapter is no solution.

Read this page to determine your OS Version (64 or 32 Bit).

Also to enable onboard graphics:
1. Uninstall all present video / graphics drivers
2. Remove your graphics card
3. Plug the monitor to the mobo VGA adapter and start the PC
4. In BIOS select onboard graphics
5. Install the correct drivers from the motherboard support CD

A:Problem installing new graphics card on Emachine/onboard-graphics

An extreme option

As you do have the option of a working computer prior to installing the new card I would back up any files that are important to you..
Then, before I would pay someone else BIG bucks, I would put in the new card and try a fresh install of windows. Force it to recognise your new card. The drivers that Windows will pick should suffice until the install is done and you can then install the card specific drivers from your disk.
This is given ONLY as a choice. I am not sure this will solve your problem but IT IS something this cheap bas____ would try before paying someone else.

Good Luck and check back, maybe someone else will contribute a better idea.

Hello there, I am looking for a dirt cheap, Windows 7 suitable graphics card for use with a PC designed for multimedia purposes (watching films, listening to music etc). I would like to be able to use the full visual effects Windows 7 has to offer. It must have an S-video output and be compatible with the Asus M3A78-CM Motherboard. I have 1 PCI Express x 1 slot free and 2 x PCI 2.2 slots free.

Please provide some suggestions, doesn't have to be brand new.

Either that, or something like the Gadmei XGA/VGA LCD TV BOX. I want to connect my PC with the motherboard mentioned previously to my CRT TV (Panasonic TX-28PL4 Quintrix). The motherboard has onboard graphics via dvi and vga outputs. The TV has an S-VHS plug on the front, as well as RCA Audio/Video sockets. On the rear, it has 1 spare scart input.

What are your thoughts?

A:Graphics Card/Onboard Graphics for Media Centre PC

the graphics card listed in my specs may only be 64MB, but it surprisingly runs aero.
If that seems to be not quite what you're looking for, another card I would recommend is the nvidia 8400GS. It may be 512MB, but thats about as high as it's specs go, but you will need a more powerful PSU (300W+). The 8400GS is about ?30 and a vga to RCA adapter seems to be about ?5 (i recommend you buy the adapter before the card).
The one in my specs just has a VGA port, but the 8400GS has vga, dvi and hdmi (i think the hdmi may need some further cabling in the case, not sure though)

NB (the card listed in my system specs may actually be the GeForce 7200GS, all system information programs tell me that it could be both and there's no sticker on it. all i know for (kinda) certain is that its 64MB )

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.

Hi , The option is the one where the nvidia card and intel on-board are shown, and the BIOS should select the nvidia card as priority if it can, and has a choice.
It's sometimes known as 'Primary Video' & the option is called PEG.
Make sure you save the settings when you exit or they won't be changed from before.

Hi,

I've seen this problem posted here several times. I have purchased an ATI Radeon 9250 PCI card to use instead of the integrated graphics controller in my computer (VIA Tech VT8361/8610 Graphics Controller). The onboard graphics controller CANNOT be disabled in BIOS (according to Biostar tech support). When I go into Device Manager and find it under Display Adapter, right-clicking it only gives me the option to Uninstall. The Device Usage is greyed out, even though I am logged in with Administrator rights.

So, does anyone know how I can DISABLE this onboard graphics controller. Again, using Windows 2000.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Can I use onboard graphics with graphics card

No, usually one can't use both onboard and add-in graphics adapters, by adding the plug-in card the onboard automatically gets disabled, at least on all the computers I've done it with.

Some newer CPUs do have things combined such as AMD CPUs that include ATI video, usual quick explanation of making things that way is for speed. AMD owns ATI Graphics.

Simple question which should I use when the new MB is installed?

A:New MB - use onboard graphics or old card?

Pretty much either or as they both perform about the same. The only advantage the 8400GS will have is that it won't use system ram.

If you have an onboard video card and then you install in a graphics card, will they work together? I'm getting a motherboard with a Geforce 6150, and a Geforce 7600GT. Will they work together, or will the Geforce 7600GT just do everything?
 

A:Onboard Video + Graphics Card?

The 7600GT will do everything. But that's ok if you want dual monitors because the 7600GT can support 2 screens.

Probably a dumb question (sorry) but trying to do some homework before my new system and monitor arrive.

Monitor (Dell U2713HM) will have multiple input possibilities, including DVI-D, Displayport and HDMI.

Graphics card (GeForce GTX 745) will have DVI-D and HDMI outputs.

Computer will also have onboard Displayport 1.2 output.

I assume I am going to connect the monitor and graphics card directly via DVI-D, but my questions are these:

Is there going to be any difference between using the onboard DisplayPort vs the graphics card DVI-D connection? If I use the onboard Displayport as the connection to the monitor, is this bypassing my graphics card altogether or is the graphics card working in conjunction with the DisplayPort in some way?

Thanks.
 

A:Which to use? Onboard DisplayPort or DVI-D on graphics card?

Personally, if you have a dedicated card then use the ports on that card. I would assume (only an assumption without knowing more detailed system specs) that the onboard display port is associated with an integrated APU / GPU setup.

As far as DVI-D and HDMI go, they are essentially the same as far as graphics are concerned, the main difference is that HDMI also carries audio (DVI-D is only video). If you have speakers connected to normal audio ports then it makes no difference. If you are using a screen / TV with its own speakers then HDMI is probably a better option as it means less cables.

Hi,

I have a Compaq SR5000 desktop with windows vista home premium and I wanted to install a second graphics card to use a 2nd monitor. I installed the 2nd card, however it automtically disables the onboard card which I don't it to do.When I look in device manager the onboard card doesn't appear anywhere or I can't get it to appear. There is an option in the BIOS to choose the main display , either th eonboard, pci or pci-E, so obviously I've tried the onboard option, but it still is disabled. I've got the drivers for the onboard card and tried to install them while having the 2nd graphics card in but that didn't work. Is there anything I can do to get this working or is it just not possible, any advice appreciated.
Thks.
 

A:How to enable onboard graphics card

This behavior is pretty typical on most systems. Generally if you want to run multiple monitors you can do it from the same graphic device, so in this case off the new add-in graphics card. Does the new graphics card not have multiple outputs? What is the exact card you both and what connections do each of the monitors have?

Well here is the deal. When I put windows XP on my PC my on-board graphics card stopped working. Well that was all fine and dandy because I installed a PCI-E graphics card. Well, its been about 3 years now and my graphics card is done. One of the capacitors blew up.

Now I am trying to reinstall my on-board until I am able to purchase a new graphics card. Well It is not letting me use my on-board graphics card. When I go to install it, it is telling me it cannot find the driver. I think this is happening because I uninstalled windows Vista, and that graphics card is only compatible with VISTA.

If there is any way to get around this please help! Thanks so much for taking your time to read this. Have a good day!

When I go to install it, it is telling me it cannot find the driver.Click to expand...

If the onboard graphics are not working, how are you getting this message on the screen in the first place? In other words, if you are getting this message, the onboard graphics are not dead. When you installed Windows XP, you should have gone to the PC manufacturer's website to locate the motherboard chipset, sound, LAN, graphics, etc., drivers. If the PC is a custom or self built computer, then you would go to the motherboard manufacturer's website for these drivers. Anytime you install any version of Windows you should be doing this.

Try doing it now.

If I disable the onboard graphics in device manager or in the bios before installing the new card and the new card is in fact DOA, how can I ever regain output from the onboard graphics again for output to the monitor?

You need to disable onboard graphics after installing a video card and starting the computer for the first time.
Also make sure the video cable is properly connected to the new card.

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

Have you looked to see if your current graphics chipset is capable of running your games. That error IS usually a software issue and you may not have to change at all
IF you have to change, it isnt the kind of change that most laptop owners (unless pretty handy and unless you dont mind voiding your warranty) can or should do.

You can switch between the graphics cards - using low performance Intel graphics for browsing/less graphics intensive application and using high performance nVidia graphics for graphics intensive applications like games.

The HDMI onboard must also be connected to the onboard Video circuitry as well.
By plugging in the addon (Geforece 6800 GT) Asus Motherboard setup has concluded that you do not require the onboard Video (anything) and turned it off automatically (and you cannot change that setting)

One option would be to have a addon Video Card that also has HDMI on it.
Or purchase a PCI HDMI compatible card.

Under BIOS Setup Utility > Advanced tab > Chipset > Southbridge configuration > Primary Graphics Adapter. Choose the option [PCIE -> PCI -> IGP].

This doesn't actually disable the IGP (onboard graphics) but it gives priority to the PCI-E graphics card which lets you use it.

Hello Today I bought a brand new Acer V - G laptop that runs Window with a nvida gtx m graphics card built in Getting home I decided to use Just Cause 's bench test to find out how the laptop would hold up After completion and getting a rather low score I noticed it said the graphics card it was running was the integrated Intel r HD graphics card and not the nvidia So after some researching and trying out different ways with no results I right clicked on computer clicked on manage went to device manager then to display adapter saw the intel card and the nvidia card so I disabled the after Black card Help! disabling screen graphics intel card in hopes it would force the nvidia card to be used Black screen after disabling graphics card Help! Once I did that all windows disappeared the desktop was still there and I could still access the tile menu start screen so I restarted hoping it would set everything back to normal and start using the nvidia card Oh how wrong I was Upon restart the acer title logo pops up then disappears as usual but after that I only get black screen nothing else Is there any way to fix this To re enable the graphics card some how Thank you in advance

A:Black screen after disabling graphics card Help!

If you could get to Safe Mode, you could re-enable the onboard graphics.

In some cases, if Windows 8 doesn't successfully start a few times in a row, it will display a screen with alternate boot options - among them an "Advanced Options" tab - which will include an option to start in Safe Mode. Try letting your laptop restart a few times. If it recognises a problem with the onboard graphics, it might produce the Advanced Startup Options menu.

If you don't see that menu appear, you can use a Windows 8 repair disc (USB, CD, or DVD) to boot your computer. It will produce a menu from which you can choose Advanced Startup Options & choose Safe Mode. The Wndows 8 repair disc is not your Windows 8 installation disk, nor is it a recovery disk (such as those provided by your manufacturer). The repair disc starts your computer into the Windows 8 Recovery Environment.

It only takes a minute or two to make the repair disc (literally). From a working Windows 8 PC, press the Windows & R keys at the same time. Then type recdisc. Choose create repair disc, & provide a blank CD, or blank DVD, or USB flash memory drive.
_________________________________________

Apparently, your laptop uses a hybrid type program called "Optimus" that uses both the onboard graphics as well as the discrete nVidia mini-card. The idea is that the onboard graphics handle mundane graphics tasks (to save battery life), and the nVidia kicks in when needed for gaming.

It seems that you do have some degree of control over when the nVidia takes over -- the options are in the "nVidia Control Panel". Here's a blurb from a gaming website about it:
Quote:




After you are at the control panel of nVidia, in the left side of that window there is 'Manage 3D settings' Under the 'Select a Task'. Click on that and you see in the other part there is a 'global settings' tab and 'program settings'. Go to the global one and in the 'preferred graphics processor' choose 'High Performance nVidia Processor'. You should then have the optimus technology when you choose apply. The 'program settings' in the other hand is to choose what graphics card you want to use for each program of your preference. So you choose on your program and select your preferred graphic card there




.

See if the nVidia Control Panel gives you the control you need, once you get things visible again with a repair disc.

Best of luck

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.

Cheers.

Hello,

I have a HP Pavilion 533w machine with an integrated Intel 82845 graphics card. I have a new ATI Radeon card that I want to install. However, I am getting errors because of the onboard Intel card. I have disabled the card in the device manager but this is not helping. I need to figure out which jumpers to change on the motherboard. I believe the motherboard is a GL_VE motherboard, however I can not find any info. on how to disable this card so the PC does not recognize it. The BIOS is also of the "Phoneix" make and it has beenr ecently flashed, however, ther eis no option to NOT recognize the onboard BIOS. Can anyone tell me which jumpers to change or where I can go to find out?

Thank you!
 

A:disabling Intel integrated graphics card 82845 G

Try contacting HP about it.

I would think there would be some kind of option in the BIOS to disable it though... are you sure you looked hard enough? It could have a different name such as onboard VGA, onboard display device, display device selection or something similar.

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.

A:Graphics card doesn't post any graphics to my monitor, computer boots up fine

Its usually just the graphics cards, they do fail especially if they overheat - then video card fan not speeding up might have been the problem - most are dynamic and should actually speed up under load. Depending on the manufacturer of your 8800GTX you might be able to get it replaced under warranty if they have a 3 year or greater warranty.

I'm recently working on my brother-in-law's computer that was given to him. I installed windows2000 professional...i.e. reformatting and removing all old software. Everything so far seems to run great...if you don't plan on having any sound. It appears the sound card is a SoundPro HT1869V+ on board and is not compatable with win2000 nor has drivers to install for win2000. My first question is this....can I disable the onboard sound card and install a new sound card i.e. Creative soundblaster and if so my 2nd question is how do I disable the onboard sound card? Would this be done in bios? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
 

A:Disabling Onboard Sound Card

try going to start/settings/control panel/add remove hardware, go throught the uninstall prompts. If you can see the sound chip there you should be able to uninstall or disable it.

Otherwise you can look in the bios for a setting to disable it, some motherboards have jumpers, you would need to check the manual for the machine. And some disable themselves when you install another sound card.

Right click on My Computer => Manage => System Tools => Device Manager => Display Adapters => Right click on the Integrated card and choose Disable.

You can also do it on BIOS (by hitting Delete after the computer starts up), but I feel more convenient doing the other way.

Hi maxim
Some motherboards have a jumper on them to disable the onboard video. There might also be a place somewhere in the BIOS to turn it off and finally some motherboards automatically turn off the on board video if a video card is installed.

A:Whats a Good Graphics card for Gaming and using Adobe Software-Graphics

7...

I've done a lot of research on this because I built a new system back in August. While I am not much of a gamer, I needed a very good NLE machine. However, the card I chose is quite the gamer card but had all the extras I needed to run Adobe Video Collection.

I picked the Connect 3D Radeon X850XT Platinum card from Tigerdirect. At the time it was $350 but I know it's cheaper now. It's got everything you need for a demanding application like Premiere Pro 1.5 and its related software. 256MB of GDDR3 memory and dual DVI outs. I highly recommend this card. I've been using it since the start of September with Adobe and it's great.

Your CPU and memory are a bit more of an important factor with rendering and burning though. My new PC has a 3.4Ghz P4 and 2GB of 533Mhz dual channel RAM. It's an exceptional increase in speed and productivity over my old 2.4Ghz and 512 Rambus.

The comparison you are making between GPU brands is pointless as a diagnostic. The MAIN difference I can see is that one card requires external power, and the other one does not. A proper diagnostic would be to test another GPU that requires external power.

I've heard that the specific PSU you bought will sometimes not power all the hardware it is supposed so.
People saying it could barely power a SSD, or even an extra fan.

My thoughts. Try using another PSU, try using a similar GPU. Use your old PSU and see if it still happens for starters.

You could always stick the new one in and boot up in safe mode. Then proceed to uninstall all the remnant drivers. That *shouldn't* cause any problems, but it may be choppy when you boot up.(I've had this happen before, swapping a Riva TNT2 for a GF6600).

I just wanted to add that when I go into Device Manager there is no problem with the CD/DVD. I tried updating the driver through DM and Windows says the driver is up to date. I popped in a CD and it reads and plays no problem.

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...

Friends,

Lately I have been having graphics problems in games. There are these " artifacts", wierd shapes, triangles, ect that appear and "shot" through my screen. it is hard to explain what it looks like, except that it is NOT normal.

It is hard to say when these appeared. I have recently got a different monitor. It is not new. It is a Dell CRT monitor. I replaced 1 CRT with another because I am cheap .

I have the latest drivers, I think, for my graphics card ( GeForce 5700 LE ). Not great , but not terrible. I play the games with either low or medium settings. I ran a benchmark test that was terrible.

Any ideas as to weather it is the card or monitor?

What I really want to know is how to disable my Radeon HD 4350 graphics card, so that I can swap to Intel HD on-board graphics.

This is so I can compare the two on their Windows Experience Index.

Thanks

Hi there, so I just installed windows 7 on my friend's computer. Previously they had a ATI graphics card (not sure which version) but now it says it has a Standard VGA Graphics Adapter. Because of this, the resolution isn't displayed correctly and everything is enlarged. This is very annoying. Can anyone help please?? >-<

A:how to disable Intel HD Graphics to install PCI-E graphics card

It's likely to be an improvement, but check it and see.
Onboard graphics are disabled in the BIOS (Try looking under "Integrated Peripherals" or something similar.
You probably don't need to do this, but it's nice to know how.

I just plugged my monitor into the new card (HD4770) and it works, did not disable or uninstall the integrated graphics. the integrated is a NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE chipset. The performance index went higher on paper but other than having better resolution I don't see a huge improvment. I still have video lag trying to watch streaming hd movies and my new camera (Panasonic Lumix ZS7) wont play video in HD over my computer. Must I disable and even uninstall the old integrated graphics too or am I missing something else?

A:I just installed a new graphics card, must I disable the old integrated graphics?

Have a look in your bios to see if it has an option to boot from pci-e or intergrated.
What is the motherboard you are using?

Alright so here's the deal I have a geforce fx and recently acquired this system monitoring thing which enabled me to overclock the GPU I didn't set it very high but when i restarted the computer won't load at all Nothing it will just freeze up The card doesn't get overheated at Integrated Enabling Graphics all i already checked that Anyway i tried just removing the card and disabling the overclocking using the integrated card However it will display on the integrated card all the way up to when XP loads The windows loading screen will show and when its done the screen goes black I think that is because i disabled all the drivers and whatnot for Enabling Integrated Graphics the integrated graphics a long time ago I would like to reenable the integrated graphics so i can turn off the changed settings on the card If anyone knows of anything i can do that would be great Also I have tried switching to onboard video controller in the BIOS but that did nothing My safe mode will NOT boot thats been like that for Enabling Integrated Graphics ages now so thats something totally separate from this problem and enable VGA mode did absolutely nothing

go to the computers manufacturers website and see if they have the proper drivers you need.

I recently received a BS error from my graphics card. After uninstalling it and using the most up to date AMD Graphics Drivers to reinstall my graphics card in hopes that it fixed the issue, it cause the BS to come back. I then Uninstalled the graphics card again and now I am stuck.

I have no idea what I am doing but my goal is to get my graphics card working on my computer properly again. If anyone can help, it will be very much appreciated.

This laptop is not a great gaming laptop. There's nothing you can upgrade on it. If you are serious about gaming, use a up-gradable desktop PC or be prepared to spend a great deal more money on a gaming laptop

A:no video card graphics nor online graphics

Hello! Welcome to TechSpot!

What is the ram & psu make and model?
Try clearing the cmos, per MoBo book.
First check to see that you used MoBo's stand off's correctly and
that the MoBo is not shorting out on the case.
Do a bare setup, only the essentials. Can be done with or without case.

1.cpu heatsink/fan
2.MoBo
3.1 stick of known good ram
4.video card
5. keyboard
6.monitor

Un-hook all power & data cables (except the power to MoBo)
remove all addin cards.
This is just to get you to the bios screen.
Failing this, try booting without any ram just to see if you get any error
beep codes, same with video card.

This should help getting some trouble shooting in order.
G'Luck and let us know.

My Nvidia graphics card has a small cooling fan that is not always working right and I want to uninstall that card and use the
onboard graphics that was installed when i first got the desktop. Will the onboard graphics take the place of the uninstalled card or will I have to reinstall the graphic desktop before I unstalled the bad graphics card.

I just picked up an HP dx2000 desktop computer that has the "Intel Extreme Graphics 2" onboard video card. Im trying to play World of Warcraft on the machine and it is a bit jumpy due to what I assume is the graphics card. The system has 1Gb of RAM so I dont believe it has anything to do with the RAM.

My question is, will my system benifit from a PCI graphics card or is the bus too slow for PCI to show any type of improvement? The only reason I say PCI is because the system does not have an AGP slot.

Thanks!

ASUS GT240 graphics card "ERROR CAN NOT FIND GRAPHICS CARD" Can anyone help me with this error message? I can hear the windows startup sound but it shows no display so i plugged the cable into the motherboad and an error box opend wich stated "ERROR CAN NOT FIND GRAPHICS CARD" with no additional information. I searched online and found that asus smart doctor can cause this and they recommend that you uninstall and reinstall the drivers to fix this problem but the pc is not picking up the graphics card to reinstall all the needed drivers. I also found people with the same problem and after they did a clean install of windows7/vista and all the drivers the error box still appeared. Does anyone know how to resolve this problem? Your help will be greatly appreciated.

A:ASUS GT240 graphics card "ERROR CAN NOT FIND GRAPHICS CARD"

Do you have the PCIe set as first to initialize in the BIOS? Also, have you tried the card in another slot on the MoBo? Have you tried cleaning out the slot with canned air? Have you tried using a pencil eraser to gently clean the contacts in the GPU where it plugs into the PCIe?

And please, thoroughly fill out your System Specs by clicking on the tab under your post.
