Q: No monitor, How do i disable onboard graphics card

hey everyone

my sisters emachine of 3 yrs of age has finally had its first problem, the onboard
video card seems to have failed, in an attempt i bought a cheap graphics card
hoping to resolve the problem, a"256MB AGP Geforce Fx5200", ive been told that i need to disable the onboard graphics card first, before the other card can take over, but the whole reason why i even bought the card, was because i cant see her monitor, so there is no way i can change the settings, i am not new to computers, but i am very new to this problem, any info or suggestions as to what i can do to fix the problemswould be very much appreciated, thnx

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.)

Disable the Onboard Grapphix in DEVICE MANAGER. Install your new card. Install the drivers. Be sure to hook the VGA cable up to the correct outlet.

Here's the problem... My onboard graphics won't let me play 3d games, so I got a new video card but when I put it in it says "system only supports svda/add2 video cards in the x16 slot"

Now i've heard there's a switch on the motherboard to disable the graphics card but unless there's not one there, I didn't see it...

A:disable onboard graphics

The message seems to indicate that your board does not support the new video card. I don't see that it has much to do with onboard graphics.

But onboard graphics can often be disabled in BIOS setup if no board jumper. If all else fails, it can be disabled in Device Manager.

But you should prepare for the possibility that you will lose graphics if the new card does not work and you will then have a hard tme getting back into the system. Making a backup of the system when it is working is advised, or at least a restore point if you can access System Restore without using the new graphics card, such as by booting your OS DVD.

Is this board in an HP system? If so, go to HP and find the manual, as ASUS doesn't list it at their site, which leads me to believe it's OEM. There has to be something in the BIOS ("onboard peripherals", or "Soundmax", or something) that you can disable it with. Check the "advanced" tab.

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.

Question is: "should I disable the onboard video in the bios, or leave it alone?" Current settings apparently work fine, but is there an advantage to disabling the onboard... or is it one of those , 'leave well enough alone' thingies?

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

On bootup there will be a message to enter your bios. In your bios look for a video option that will allow you to disable your on board video. On the reboot, turn it off and install your new card.

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 )

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.

A:No signal to my monitor unless I use onboard graphics

once youve insert a graphics card into the board it alot of time becomes the primary display. this setting can also be manipulated in the bios of some computer manufacturers. Your monitor is probably not getting a signal becuase the adapter is not enable in the computer or the settings of the card are not set to spec that can display on your monitor (resolution to high or low, refresh rate, etc)

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.

Hi All,

Is it possible to switch from onboard graphics and 4850. Now I am using Intel 945GCC motherboard and having HD4850 graphics card. I want to use 4850 while playing games and onboard graphics card for regular usage, So that I can save some power.

A:Using Onboard graphics card along with 4850

No, and the power requirement for the 4850 isnt taxing anyway.

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!


A:Onboard graphics card (non-working)

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.

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.

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?


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.

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.

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.

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?

I was wondering is it possible to use onboard graphics from my motherboard and use my graphics card at the same time? Also my motherboard states that the onboard graphics is dependent on the cpu. What exactly does this mean how does my cpu effect the onboard graphics

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.

Hi guys, I'm a noob here, and was just wondering if there was any way to change my onboard graphics card in my laptop? My laptop is a Acer Aspire 5520, with the default Nvidia Geforce 7000m.

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.

My PC is showing just a black screen, I know it is not the monitor as I have checked it on another PC. I want to know if it is possible to install a seperate graphics card without disabling the onboard one. The reason I ask that is that cannot get anything from the onboard one, or will I have to replace the motherboard? If I have to do that will I lose everything I have on my PC. If I can replace would I then be able to disable the onboard one?

Any help really appreciated,

I decided to upgrade to a separate video card in my HP p6710f PC with ATI Radeon HD 4200 onboard graphics. The card I purchased is an MSI Radeon R7 240. I installed the card and although the fan ran there was no video output. I don't know if the card is DOA or another problem. 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? It seems to me I would be dead in the water with a black screen and no way to do anything. If anyone can help and knows the answers to this problem it would be greatly appreciated!

A:Once Onboard Graphics Are Disabled, What If New Video Card is DOA?

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.

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?

Would anyone happen to know if the onboard video should be disabled in the BIOS when installing a new graphics card in a PCIExp slot. If it is left enabled, the PC should find the new card and boot from it, correct?

yes it should auto detect your setup...if it does not THEN you might need to enable/disable in bios

A:Onboard HDMI port inconflict of graphics card

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.

I've just installed a genuine copy of Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit & made sure my Nvidia 8800GTS was attached correctly to the motherboard at the time of installation. When Vista started up, I went into DXDIAG & it says that the graphics are 14mb integrated as opposed to 640mb Nvidia 8800GTS which I have connected.

I then tried inserting the driver CD but that didn't work either.

I'm all out of ideas. I'd appreciate any help regarding this, thanks.

Also,I just wondered... How is it even showing a display on the monitor if the monitor is attached to the 8800GTS?

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.

I have recently upgraded my graphics card but the old SiS graphics card is causing interference but i don't know how to disable it. i do not know the chipset but the motherboard is manufactured by Elitegroup and its model is KS7OM. Thanks.

A:I need advice on how to disable a sis graphics card.

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.

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?

I use a 64-bit Sony Vaio Laptop VPCSB26FG with a Windows 7 Home Premium OS. Thanks a lot!

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?

Today I got a new samsung 27" monitor and whenever I run a game the monitor will shut off then back on about every 15-20 seconds. I have a DVI to VGA (VGA into the CPU and DVI into the monitor) plugged in, and am using a 1920x1080 resolution. I have tried lowering the resolution to 1280x720 and it still shuts off. my old monitor is an 18.5" and it runs perfectly on my CPU. my CPU is an HP Compaq 8000 Elite USFF Desktop Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16GHz 8GB 250GB w/ Win 7. I am not a big computer guy, and cant tell if this is because of my CPU graphics card not being able to handle the high resloution or the Monitor itself. all help is appreciated. thanks

A:monitor shutting off not sure if its my graphics card or the monitor

Try un-plugging PC and monior, and then re-plugging.
Then load defaults in BIOS.
Check if monitor is still being detected as the old one.

New monitor, can be defected, try on another PC/laptop.

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 have an HP Envy Desktop 750-114 and an HP V242h monitor. Colors, etc. on the monitor are flat, dull and almost gray. It's been like this since we got the computer about a year ago. I tweaked the contrast, etc., on the monitor and it's a little better, but still not great. So, do I need a new graphics card for the computer, or a new monitor? I'm afraid if I buy a new monitor, it'll be the same, dull and flat. If a new graphics card is needed, what would be a good one, and would I need a new power supply? My son does like to do gaming, so one that is good for gaming would be preferred. Thanks in advance!

Hi all, new here.
I recently purchased a Chimei 22 inch wide screen monitor. When I hooked it up to my computer the images aren't really all that great, with the small text being blurry. When I try to change my display settings there is no option for 1680 x 1050. Is this because of my graphics card? How do I find out if my graphics card will support this monitor? Did I make a bad purchase?
Any help appreciated.

A:New monitor and graphics card???

First off, don't set the Monitor to the MAX.
Why because if your Video Card can't go that high you won't be able to use 1680x1050. In this case replace video card.

What video card are you using? This is not onboard video, better not be?

1. Go into Windows Control Panel and click on Display
2. Select Appearance Tab
3. Click on Effects
4. Check box: Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts
5. Go from Standard to ClearType (for LCD Monitors)
6. Go into Settings
7. Click Advance
8. Click on Adapter then on List all Modes

In the List all Modes you'll see how high your video card can go. Don't worry about refresh rates with LCD monitors. Those are for CRT tube.

Word of caution
Make sure Color quality is set to Highest (32-bit)
Don't max out your video card to support the LCD panel.

For running 4 monitors, you need:
a ~120€ motherboard (high quality costs a little extra)
a ~70-150-200 € CPU
a pair of ~30 € graphics cards.

I have a pci-e slot open so I know that isn't going to be a problem. The only thing I am worried about is that this new graphics card isn't going to have a vga output, which is the only connection my monitor has. Will I still be able to plug my monitor into the original vga output slot while using my new graphics card? If not, does anybody know how well a dvi to vga adapter works?

I'm having a very wierd problem.

Basically when I start my PC up and get to the windows logon screen - my monitor is switching on and off quickly. Like it cannot keep up with a refresh rate. The screen also sometimes goes white.

If I manage to log on to the PC, after the PC has settled the issue stops - so im not sure if it is some odd software causing it or whether it is something to do with the monitor.

I Have a CTX TFT Monitor and a Radeon X800 Pro using the Omega drivers (which I have used for years)

I hadn't upgraded the omega drivers any time before this started, and I have the most up to date drivers now and the issue is still going on.

Make sure you have connected the power supply to the video cards if there is such a connection. Since you only have a 230 watt supply, your system may not support the new card anyway. What is your system's specs and who makes it?

Those are just screw anchors, and one or more may be stripped. They have no bearing on electrical or video problems except to keep the video cable connected and secure. Looks like the computers video card is dieing... besides the stripped screws. Try another monitor to be sure
