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.)

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?

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.

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)

Yesterday I bought a Diamond Stealth S60 Radeon 7000 32mb graphics card (PCI version), and after I installed it and loaded the drivers, it still wouldn't work. So I did some research, and I found, I think, that I have to disable the integrated video card in my PC, and I have no idea how to do that.

(Just a note, but after I installed the drivers and re-started my PC, the new card shows only black. When I switched back over to the integrated card, it tells me in a pop-up window that the "ATI Control Panel" had a problem and didn't install. Is this related or another problem entirely?)

So how/when do I disable the integrated card?

Thanks,

A:How do I disable my integrated video card?

First of all, be sure you new adapter installs correctly....

In XP you can disable the intergrated video by going to System Properties (control pannel/System) click on hardware tab then device manager..... Click the + sign by display adapters... Right click the adapter you want to disable then click properties and in the dialog box (t the bottom) select Disable

Other windows OS are done pretty much the same way with device manager

Hope this helps

I am adding a new video card to handle my son's games but I need to disable the integrated video card. I know I can disable it in the Device Manager but I believe I have to do it through the BIOS.

If not I'll install the card and take it to COMPUSA and have them do it.

Hi, My name is Randy and I bought a couple weeks ago a Gateway AthlonXP 3500+ media center, yesterday I bought a GeForce 6600/256MB Video card and before I install it, will my integrated video card automatically be disabled when I install the GeForce in the to the PCI express slot? I was told it would do this, I also was reading on the internet to go into the Bios setting after computer reboots by pressing F2 to disable the on board graphics card,I just do not know which i should do,Please if anyone can help me with this,Thanks
 

A:How do I disable integrated video card?

Hello Randy,
On my gigabyte brand board, when I installed my geforce 6200, it automatically disabled the onboard video. If it doesn't do it automatically, then you may have to go into the bios and set a setting like, "display: integrated/pci/pci-e/agp" just select the type you want to use, if your card is pci-e then select pci-e if the option is available. It should be automatic though, mine was.

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?

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
 

A:Integrated Graphics Card

Yep,

If you've got an AGP Port.. you could simply buy a better AGP card and stick it in, you would have to disable your on-board VGA though... but that will still free up your lost RAM.

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.

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?

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.

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?

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.

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
FOR OTHER COMPONENTS
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.

HI, I have a Pavilion 15-ab113na, The specs are:AMD A8 7410 APU with R5 Graphics Discrete AMD R7 M360 8GB Ram Adata Premier SP550 120GB SSD500GB HGST Hard Drive  Now my problem is, everytime I play CSGO, it is using the Integrated, I found out when I installed MSI Afterburner. I put everything in Max Performance and even disabled ULPS. I also installled latest drivers from both HP and AMD.I can't even play CSGO because it always have FPS drops (like 80fps to 50fps). Is there a way to use the discrete graphics instead of the integrated. I also looked for a setting in the BIOS but my BIOS just have simple settings.

Hi,
I have a 3yr old Samsung NP550C laptop. Yesterday, it slipped from my hands and had its screen broken. Now, i replaced the screen with a genuine LED, and monitor is working fine now. Thing is, its not detecting the integrated graphics card now. It was still detecting while it was cracked, means the fall did not damage the card. I reinstalled the driver, even slightly wiggled the card, but it didn't help. Any suggestions!!

Hello My first post
Anyway i really need to upgrade my computers graphics card ( Nvidia 7600 GS 512mb intergrated version) as its flagging in this day and age and its stopping me playing most games now (i can just scrape skyrim but it falls under its min requirments) I will get a top of the range laptop soon when i go to uni but will keep my desktop for now so i need to add a better graphics card (Rest seem to be fine for the mo) .The problem is the integrated cards is already in the PCI express slot (opened up comp and i can see it in the slot) will be safe to remove the board and would a new card function in it Thanks for the help.
 

A:Integrated graphics card in PCI-Express slot

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:Integrated graphics or silent card suggestions?

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).

My choice was this card...

My motherboard is an Asus M2N68-Am Plus. My OS is Windows 7. I am trying to install a Nividia G-force 210 graphics card. Can someone please help me?
 

A:Disabling an integrated graphics card in BIOS

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.

Hi all!

I have PC on Asus P5B-V motherboard with integrated video card (Intel G965 based). It looks like the integrated video came to it end after a voltage jump. I tried to reanimate the PC by using PCI or PCI-e card, but I didn't found any jumpers on the MB except one resetting bios. Switching between graphics cards are possible from BIOS which I cannot see, and it looks that the default option is IGD.
May anybody suggest something or it will be better to throw this MB to waste bin?
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.

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!

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.

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?

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.

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 mobo.you might want to try googling a bit to find out about your mobo.to 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.

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?

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.

Hi there,

I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 and I get feedback problems with the integrated mic.
I run windows XP and I can't turn off that mic seperately.

I tried disabling some sound devices through device manager and tried looking for an option in BIOS, but no luck. That mic near the cam keeps giving me feedback.

For example I tried plugging in my electric guitar and I got huge noise and feedback, but it didn't occur to me at first. Now I tried to use a digital tuner to tune my acoustic guitar and it shows me ridiculous results. This could all be fixed if I could disable that integrated microphone and only use the line-in jack to plug in a new mic.

Thanks for any ideas.

A friend of mine has a Gateway computer. He says it has integrated sound and video, but wishes to upgrade to a 32MD Radeon card and a Sound Blaster sound card. He has contacted Gateway, and was told there is no way to disable the integrated components. I have not seen his computer nor do I have any information as to what model it is, but I have never heard of this problem before. Has anyone else had to deal with this, and if so what can be done? Thanks for any help you can offer.
 

A:How to disable integrated sound and video?

You really need the make and model to make that determination. Some of the newer motherbords will disable the on-board stuff once an add on card is plugged in, some are disabled in the BIOS and some are disabled with jumpers on the motherboard.

hi, i have a jetway mobo with max 32mb shared video; i have been trouble playing video files recently so i went n bought a separate 8x agp nvidia card (but my mobo can only support upto 4x agp); that shouldnot be a problem right?

however, i still get the same symptoms; i did rtfm of the mobo but they dont explain the why's of the settings; i dont recall an option to disable onboard video but it asked for initial video source which i picked agp; i dont know what else to to

please help me
 

A:how to disable integrated onboard video

Explain in detail your issue with the video files.

As for the card, I don't know if the graphics card will drop down to 4x. If not, then your mobo will not support it.

You can disable the onboard video via the Device Manager in Control Panel > System or in the BIOS.

Please help me! thankx!!!
 

A:How to disable onboard/integrated display adapter

Does this video card require a separate power connection, 'cause that'll do it.

If you have a standard "Phoenix or Award" BIOS, the VGA settings are under "Advanced BIOS Features"

You actually don't have to disable the onboard graphics to run a video card, but you do have to enable the external VGA. Some BIOS can be set to "auto" which shuts down the onboard graphics when an external card is detected.

Most people do shut down the onboard graphics, but they can be run together. The graphics driver for the video card will be the only one controlling the system.

A:integrated graphics

Intel graphics chips don't meet the requirements of most of today's PC games.
Whilst it's (usually) possible to allocate more system RAM to the graphics chip in the BIOS Setup, there is a limit to how much you can allocate, and it's certainly less than the 1GB (recommended) that SkyRim requires.

Not only that, the more RAM you assign to the graphics chip, the less there is left over for Windows and applications to use. SkyRim requires 2GB RAM (minimum), 4GB (recommended). You have a total of 3GB RAM at present. Windows Vista needs most of that for itself just to run at an acceptable pace.
There just isn't enough RAM for both Vista and SkyRim together, especially as Vista is particularly heavy on RAM usage compared to other Windows versions.

So the Intel graphics chip is the primary weak spot, with installed RAM being the second weak spot.

You can add more RAM of course, but you're stuck with the Intel chip.

No, not really. I recommend integrated gpu's for my users that are just using the web and email. The A6 has a integrated HD 8470D gpu. I think that is very similar to the Intel HD4000 series. It should give you HD graphic capabilities at 1920x1200, possoble as high as 2560x1600 depending on the monitor.
You do not get the high frame rate of a new gen gpu in a 16x pcie slot.

Hey !

I have integrated graphics (Intel HD graphics) on my lappy . It says it can use upto a total memory of 1696mb approximately . I have core i3 370M processor and a memory of 4gb .

If my lappy can use memory upto 1696 mb , I can play all most all high end graphics games smoothly . But it is not happening . NFS HP3 is not running smoothly !
And games like GTA 4 aren't running .
What should I do in order to increase my gaming performance ?
Will it works upgrading my ram to 8 gb ?

A:Integrated graphics help !

Just because the integrated graphics has up to 1696 MB of shared RAM available, it doesn't overcome the fact that they are integrated graphics, which by virtue are not good performers at all when it comes to gaming. Unfortunately in your case, if it only has the Intel HD Graphics, there's not really going to be anything you can do to improve graphics performance with software. Your best bet would be to get an external graphics card for your laptop such as MSI’s external graphics card promises vastly improved graphics for laptops wanting a little more…. Don't know if they're selling it yet but if they are, then this would definitely help you with games.

i have a mobo with integrated graphix and im planning to upgrade to a AGP8X 256mb vid card.. what will i need to do? thank you in advance
 

A:Help with integrated graphics

Well, if you motherboard has an agp slot(as many integrated mobos lack graphics upgrade slots), you buy an agp card that's compatible(if your board has 8x agp get an 8x card), carefully install it(after reading it's directions of course), and then boot up. It should display using a generic windows driver, but look really low quality. If it doesn't display from the new card, you might have to enter the bios and setup the video options. Maybe select that your using an agp card instead of integrated or something like that, bioses vary. Then, you install the newest drivers for the card, like if it's nvidia based, dl the latest driver from nvida and install it.

Is there a motherbaord that offers integrated graphics within the socket am3/+ region?

A:AM3/+ Motherboard with Integrated Graphics

Yes there is quite a range, one that immediately springs to mind and at good value is the GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2P AMD760G it offers AMD 3000 Radeon graphics but as im a NVIDIA user im not sure what it offers in terms of performance but any integrated graphics are going to be low-end compared to dedicated cards.

Im a bit of a Gigabyte Fanboy so i'd suggest any one of the AM3+ boards they offer with integrated graphics.

Another suggestion i could offer would be to go for one of AMD's new APU's which is a CPU/GPU in 1 chip theyre reasonably affordable and the motherboards that run them (FM1 or FM2 Sockets) are equally affordable.

But ultimately i would suggest along with many others to go for a dedicated graphics card as long as the board you have or are getting along with your power supply are equipped to run it, even if its a low end GT630.

Here is a link of a video card heirachy chart that helps determine performance of integrated video with dedicated that should help you make a decision.

Hey all! My Asus motherboard has an ATI Radeon HD 3000 built in that can access a gig of the system DDR3 memory and all. It also can be over clocked to a gigahertz and can stay relatively cool. The thing is is when it comes to gaming, like Grand Theft Automobile 4. (Yes, I can run GTA 4 on rather goods settings too) After a few minutes of game play, the screen kind of flickers to black a bit. Or sometimes out of nowhere, the screens goes real dark and I have to wait a few seconds for it normalize out.

That only really seems to happen when the graphics chipset gets over clocked closer to a gigahertz. At 925ghz, it's all great. I have my drivers all updated too.

So is there a specific reason or reason in general why this is happening?

A:Integrated graphics overclocking.

A:My integrated graphics won't work

You were using integrated graphics before the discrete card? It's strange that your onboard isn't working if it was before hand. Usually it's just a overlooked cable or something plugged in the wrong place. Did you make any changes to BIOS? Some boards require you to change the primary display adapter to PCIE or onboard. Maybe a BIOS reset will help the situation. I doubt there is any issues with the MOBO itself. I suggest stripping the build down to nothing but the bear essential components for operation. This way you can isolate the issue a lot easier.
