    I have a motherboard with the video adapter onboard. Problem is I don't have any drivers for the motherboard or its video. So my resolution is stuck at 16 color.

    If I put a PCI Video adapter in the computer, do I need to change anything on the motherboard. I would thinking to just buy a cheap video card with drivers and install.

    Now I remember seeing a bunch of jumpers and I hope you will not tell me that I may need to change a jumper because the jumpers are beyond me. I have no documentation for that motherboard.

    I hope I can just Plug n Play. What do you guys think???

    i would first check the BIOS menu of your motherboard to see if the onboard video can be turned off there. If so, then you're all set.

    If not, then post the exact manufacturer of your motherboard and the model and someone here can probably find info on it for you...

    In fact, someone might even be able to get drivers for your onboard video!! :D
