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

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

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?

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

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

Have a look in your bios to see if it has an option to boot from pci-e or intergrated.

A:No way to disable integrated graphics on Vostro 270S when using PCIe addon card

Just a bit more information.  The add-on card is a NVidia NVS280 or NVS285 LP with pigtails to dual VGA.  With monitors hooked up to that card it has worked perfectly fine so far.  I haven't tried one monitor on the integrated card and the other on the card to verify both are still working, but the Intel integrated graphics still shows up in device manager and is using system memory.

I try to install a video card to my system(Dell dimension E310),I follow the instructions to disable integrated Graphics, but I didn't know that I should do that after install the video card in my system, so I did it first. Now when I boot my system my screen is black! I try to reboot in safe mode and nothing.

How I ENABLE back my integrated Graphics?

A:integrated Graphics Disable.

DO you install new VGA (VIDEO) CARD? If yes then you should follow the steps written in the notes. In order to get your old IGD Graphics back, you must then go to BIOS and change settings, or either do a system restore.

(I can system restore my friend computer without anything on the screen, nothing at all, just a human touch... lol)

Hey, recently, I have came up with an idea of a fourth monitor, but my GPU (970) supports only three, which ones that I own. It has fourth one but I don't have the right cables for it for now.
I noticed that my motherboard has two open video ports, one being VGA which I needed. So, I tried just plugging it in and seeing what happens but it doesn't seem to work, I have tried looking for results around the internet and BIOS but they don't seem to work. The three monitors which I have plugged into my GPU, work perfectly fine, but, as I said, the motherboard's VGA port doesn't work. I have heard that such thing definitely is possible, but I cannot find out what I need to do.

Does anyone have an answer to this?

If my motherboard currently has an intigrated graphics card, but has a PCI-E slot, do I need to do anything special after inserteing my graphics card and installing the drivers, or should it just work right away?

A:How do you switch from an integrated graphics card to an "external" graphics card?

Most modern PCs will detect the new installation of the PCI graphics card and automatically disable the onboard graphics, so yes it should just work.

If for some reason you have problems, you may have to make a change in the bios, I cannot be more specific because each bios is different depending on manufacturer, and model of the motherboard.

Install the card, connect your monitor to it and boot up, when you get into Windows install the driver and reboot.

Im not too advanced with the hardware side of computers, and was wondering if anyone could help me out.

I've bought a new pc and it comes with an integrated Geforce4 MX video card. Is it possible to remove this and buy a stand-alone graphics card. My pc comes with 512MB DDR RAM, but the video card uses 128MB of this memory, leaving me only with 384MB of RAM. If you can remove the card would the shared 128mb memory go bak to the 384mb and make it bak up to 512MB again.

Im grateful for any help

I have a dell laptop with a dock that allows you to add pci cards. I have an ati card in there now running 2 monitors. The dock also has a vga out that i am assuming is being driven by the integrated onboard graphics from the laptop. I want 3 monitors. Is it possible to do this by driving 2 off of the pci card and 1 off of the integrated graphics? I read somewhere that you may need to look through the bios to make sure that your computer doesn't automatically disable the onboard graphics once a card is plugged in. Is this true?

A:3 monitors with pci card and integrated graphics?

Yes. This totally depends on your onboard graphics. Some will allow you to use both the integrated video out as well as an add-on card, while other cards will only permit you to use one or the other.

If you post the exact model number of your laptop that will help! At the very least find out what the integrated card is.

Hello and welcome Annie yes my friend you have a graphics driver problem. Now to get details of the system see my ditty
Using HW Info
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic.
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel
Open each + down into the component itself and then click on it - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that device. See pic for example. Though a Google for that NVidia you quoted gives me the motherboard but try it anyway.

Disregard the top bit and look at Other components and my pic just click on the square for example motherboard and it will give you in depth details model serial no etc etc

PS Have just found this it is probably the driver you need NVIDIA DRIVERS GeForce 307.83 Driver WHQL now try it but you may have to uninstall the other but try it first.

I've got an HP 752n with a P4 2.0. I've recently upgraded to 1G of RAM and now I want a little better graphics than the Intel integrated graphics can provided. However, there is no AGP slot. Is it possible to install a PCI graphics card? And if it is possible, is it worth it?

A:Integrated graphics or PCI video card?

Integrated graphics are the absolute bottom of the barrel when it comes to performance. ANY fairly new graphics card would be much, much better.

Having AGP would make things a lot easier, but I'm sure ATI or Nvidia have made versions of their "older" cards in PCI format. I don't have the time to look them up right now, but the answer to your question is yes: they are definitely worth it.

The computer I'm using is an HP Pavilion a720n. I've never really seen the need to upgrade, so it's using the came-with I believe 56MB Integrated Graphics Card.

The problem is that the Windows 7 Beta (public version) doesn't seem to recognize the integrated graphics card, and when I check DXDiag, instead shows me "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter", which I assume is it telling me that I have no graphics card, but a slot for one.

It was working fine with XP, though. Anybody know how to fix this?

Your integrated graphics should allow you to use a TV tuner quite happily, but you might want to make sure your drivers are up-to-date.

The best way to find out is to install your TV tuner, and then set things up. I assume you're using Windows Media Center for your TV playback?

A:Replace an integrated graphics card

You dont have an AGP slot so you are limited to PCI video cards. To change the video first remove the old video drivers in Add/Remove Programs, Turn off the computer and install the video card. Then boot into the BIOS and change Primary Video Adapter from onboard to PCI.

Trouble is you won't get a powerful GPU behind a passive heatsink.

I pfaffed around for ages before deciding on my own setup, and although I'm using a card which isn't passively cooled it's extremely quiet by comparison to many others - the fan idles pretty much the whole time but will rev up for extreme use (something that's never happened to mine, given I don't game personally).

If the 7600 is in the PCI e slot, by definition it is not integrated. You should be able to pull it out and swap in a newer card without any issues, so long as your power supply can handle it. Be sure to remove your old graphics drivers before performing the upgrade.

A:PCIe graphics works ONLY when integrated graphics enabled

Not sure how your motherboard works but may need the Intel graphics enabled for the dedicated card to work. Do you have the latest Intel graphics drivers installed? Have you tried installing the Nvidia drivers when on the Intel graphics?

Could also try reverting to the basic graphics drivers in Device Manager when on the Intel, then switch to the dedicated in BIOS and see if it will boot with the basic driver installed.

Thanks in advance!

PS. I?m first time here ? sorry if I used incorrect sub-forum (and eternal sorry for my non-native English)

A:Integrated graphics card dead, it was primary by default

Well, here's what I would try. If you have the manual that came with the motherboard you can have a look and see what the BIOS layout looks like. After you've studied that a bit, try turning the computer on and navigating through the BIOS (without actually seeing it) by memory. You may be able to switch from onboard to a dedicated device that way. I know that sounds a little dull but it's gonna be tricky without having anything to look at.

I got a Lenovo IdeaPad Z50-70 Laptop, with all the drivers up-to-date (including beta drivers).

The laptop features an Integrated Intel HD Graphics 4400 video card and a NVidia GeForce 840M.

The trick is that everytime I'm playing a game that is a bit older (not recognized by NVidia GeForce Experience, it runs with the Integrated Graphics card). And yes, I've tried to set to run globally with the dedicated card.

A:Will the Sims 2 work with an Integrated SIS Mirage2 Graphics Card?

the SIS Mirage2 Graphics Card is a lackluster card that will not run your game (well).

ps- the machine i'm probably going to buy is from Office Max. it's the compaq presario sr1538X-B desktop pc bundle. it's about $800.Click to expand...

not only is this computer oem, but it is a low performance machine. i strongly advise you to get a custom job available at a pc repair/sales shop near you, if there are any. if you want to know what to ask for, say so in your reply. even dells are better than compaq...

I just installed a nvidia GeForce 8400GS graphics card with VGA and DVI ports in a year old eMachines pc with Windows 7 and an AMD athalon II processor. The monitor connected to the VGA port on the graphics card works beautifully. Then I tried to install a second monitor through the original on board VGA port, but it is no longer sending a signal now that the new graphics card is installed. It seems that windows is detecting a second VGA device when I try to change the display settings but the monitor gets no signal. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

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!

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.

Hi I installed service pack and now my computer is having all kinds of problems of course the money mongers at microsoft tell me to ask HP and the people at HP are complete s lately I spent hours trying to explain the problem to them and the best they could do was quot oh just Autodetect reinstalling conflicting integrated graphics card and with keeps video reinstall your graphics card that will fix it quot yea if you say so I tried that many times before even calling them Ok so the problem is I have a video card installed on my computer my mobo has intel integrated graphics I uninstalled the software for the integrated graphics and uninstalled it in the device manager I switched my display adapter to my PCI card instead of the onboard system in BIOS I installed my video card and everything was working fine until I had to restart back a few weeks ago Autodetect keeps reinstalling integrated graphics and conflicting with video card after I got SP Basically on start up windows starts normally and does not mention anything about finding new hardware However then once windows is running a little icon which is the same as the update driver icon in the device manager pops up in the system tray and says that windows has found a new display adapter you cant click on anything or stop it in anyway It just automatically detects and installs it its kind of the same as if you pluged in a plug and play USB keychain The beautiful thing about it is that once you uninstall it from device manager you have to restart and then on restart it gets automatically reinstalled and then you have to uninstall and restart and well you can just keep going forever and ever until you start smashing things So my question is how can this be fixed I can find no setting to disable automatic hardware detection which i vaugely remember being able to do before SP and I cant get the damn integrated graphics to stay dead Even with the integrated graphics disabled but not uninstalled the drivers are still loaded and conflict with my video card like crazy I used to be able to play farcry on high now I cant even get battlefield to run higher than fps Even if it is disabled it will just get re-enabled on restart What would the BIOS quot plug and play operating system quot do I would really appreciate if anyone could help nbsp

My laptop supports two graphics card AMD Radeon(TM) HD 6470M and Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000 and after a while the AMD got corrupted(I already updated it but I think it's hardware problem) and causes blue screen so I disabled it in safe mode(because it uses the intel one).

I tried a clean install of Windows 7 and during installation AMD causes blue screen because it gets enabled.

And now I want to try a clean install of the Windows 10. Question is, is there anyway I could disable the graphics card permanently?

first, what do you mean when you said UPGRADED my video card??are you talking about onboard video adapter,an older card,or 2 cards on one system.
most likely i think you are referring to onboard chipset-usually there are 2 option to disable an onboard vga card.either you can check the bios and disable it from there depending on which bios you have the second is to change the jumper on your mobo if the option is present to disable it from your might want to try googling a bit to find out about your find out which mobo you have first you'll need to find out which chipset you have intel,via???? then download a utility which will help you check your mobo.

Hi, I need to disable my onboard video card through BIOS, to install my new graphics card. How would I go along doing so?

A:How do I disable my graphics card through BIOS

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

You could try reading your mobo manual.

If you don`t have one you may be able to download one from your mobo manufacturers web site.

Failing that during bootup try pressing either the F2 or delete keys to get into bios.

Then just search around to find your onboard graphics disable it then save and exit.

When i installed the 8800gs it disabled the onboard g.card automatically itself i was wondering if it has done the same with the sound? but if it had i wouldnt be able to hear sound through the headphones right? device manager says the sound is working fine!! im totally baffled by this if anyone could give me some advice id be grateful!! Thanks for taking time to read this!!



A:installed new graphics card sound has gone!!! plz help :S

Hi Gaz,

Installing a graphics card shouldn't have any effect on your audio. You say that you have no sound through your speakers yet you have when you plug in your headphones. Are you using the rear panel socket for your speakers and the front panel socket for your headphones? Carefully check the wiring to the front panel audio header on your motherboard - it is possible that you have dislodged some of the wires whilst you were installing your graphics card. However, before you do that check the obvious - you are plugging your speakers into the CORRECT socket, aren't you?

Now I haven't had a chance to work on a Dell with Vista preinstalled but in the past, Dells would come with the XP CD and a driver installation CD. Check your box and see if you have one. If you don't (shame on Dell) you will have to open your computer case, look at the video card and see what model it is and go to the ATI support site ( to download the drivers.
I don't know how much Ram you have ( I hope it is at least 2gb) but you will probably find that it runs a lot better without Aero.

The computer doesn't read the hard drive at all now. I installed a 450w power supply and a 9600 GSO graphics card. Ive double and triple checked all connections and everything seems to be in order. The computer did something strange before all this happened... It made me update the firmware for the DVD drive about 6 times before the hard disk failed.... I had never even asked it to update.

its SATA

I am usually the guy everyone goes to to get their computer fixed, but I am stumped. I need the stuff on the disk for work.

I own an old Dell Dimension E310, and after getting sick of the crappy graphics I experienced on WoW, I poked around for a new graphics card that I was able to use (PCI sort only, 230 watt power supply), I decided on this:

It arrived last night, tried to install it this morning. Heres the problem:

After inserting the new card, installing its drivers, disabling Integrated graphics (on both Dell setup and Windows settings), I get a very garbled display. I tried reinstalling the new card's drivers, everything I can think of, no joy.

If anyone has any thoughts, please share. Thanks.

Just installed a NVIDIA Ge Force FX5200 graphics card. Only problem is I can't get any picture. Have hunted high and low for answers. All checks state it is compatible with my motherboard. Have tried numerous option in BIOS but still cant manage a picture. I have to keep plugging my monitor in to the on board card to get my picture. If I can get some suggestions that would be great.

That way, members will have a better idea of what`s causing your problem.

I've just recently bought brand new parts to build a desktop and everything was running smoothly until I installed the video card. The monitor wouldn't display anything anymore. After removing the video card, everything worked perfectly again. However, when the video card was plugged in, the fans were running but the monitor was still not displaying anything. Could this be an issue with the mobo, videocard, psu, or monitor?

A:Monitor not displaying anything with graphics card installed

Did you disable onboard video? sometimes if you use the mobo's video output it gets confuzzled when you switch to a dedicated GPU. also are you plugging everything in correctly? have you updated drivers?

So, my wife has an old computer for which I just bought and installed a new GeForce fx 5500 (Despite hearing bad things about it. Hey, it was really cheap.) But now, her speakers constantly buzz anytime the computer is doing anything graphically intensive, ie gaming.

The sound card is some cheap POS I got off of TigerDirect a while ago. I believe it is this one:

After some basic research, I found that this is not terribly uncommon, but I couldn't find any good suggestions as to a solution.

I have reinstalled the drivers for the sound card and obviously, I just installed the drivers for the graphics card. And I have a 400W power supply, which should be sufficient.

So, any suggestions?

i recently installed a graphics card which required power from my 12v cables to be sent at 20a .
not realising my psu could only give out 16a max down its 12v cables
my problem now is i cannot get a display.
and i do not know wether it is my mobo i have broken or my psu

any help is apreciated.
ps. dont have diagnostic tools with me to test components/other pc to trial and error with.


A:installed new graphics card and broke something. but i dont know what

Well I'd start with a new power supply, you'll need on of those no mater what if you plan on fixing and running this computer.

Beyond that it could be the video card or the motherboard, or something else entirely.

A:Computer will not power on with graphics card installed

Uninstall the PCI-E card drivers (this allows booting and switching to the card using VGA which is low power).

Does that work?


Try another PCI-E card - if it works, your old one is toast.

If it doesn't, your PCI-E slot is toast.

A:Re-installed Vista SP1 and now graphics card won't work

What happens with the other hard drive now if the 9800 GT is in? It really sounds like the card is toast. Possibly from overheating during the first installation.
