    I have win98se 766mhz celeron 40g hd 128m memory.
    I have tried to install the voodoo 3 pci card as its instructions say however it say to remove old video card. I have onboard video. I went into BIOS to disable onboard video. But when i highlight it and press Enter it gives me 2 options onboard video w/ 512k or onboard video w/1m. On the right side of the screen where it gives a descripiton of the options it list Disable onboard video as an option. I have tried the - and + also Space bar, holding down Cntrl, and Alt in hopes its a hidden key all any of these key will do is toggle back and forth from 512k to 1m. I have tried removing the display adapters for device manager and rebooting using the Voodoo3 card input slot for my monitor so far i get visual from the card but in device manager i have no monitor up and the display adapters are conflicting. Thanks for any help all suggestions are welcome

    go into bios and try changing from initilize agp to initialize pci in bios

    If you can boot in safe mode with both cards, try going into device manager, select the onboard, properties, disable in this hard ware profile.

    I only have one card the PCI card no AGP slot and its the onboard that i cant stop from intializing. I tried enter also but all it does is select the highlighted entry as your choice. I looked all in bios and i cant find anything that says initailize pci or agp. BTW i have PheonixBios if that helps any.

    I checked the mother board for the JP9 jumper with no avail. After more looking i noticed this motherboard has NO jumpers..... strange to say the least. I am begininng to lose hair here. I am hoping that somehow it has to do with BIOS and maybe if i download a newer version thatll fix it. Do any of you know a site for downloading a new bios and how to install it. Ill make sure to print this thread before I try to install.

    For all other HP Pavilions, the on-board video needs to be disabled in either the BIOS or by changing a jumper on the main board. Go to HP's Search Support Page, type Pavilion followed by the actual model number and type BIOS Setup. If information on disabling the on-board video is not in any of the BIOS setup documents, then go back to HP's Search Support Page and search on Jumper Settings.

    I did as you instructed though it took time to run thru all the info to track down exactly what i needed. Heres what happened. I went to HP site. found out how to disable on board video. It said to unistall then reinstall current video drivers. Done that then change that driver to a standard video driver done that. Then check the Exists in all hardware box donethat then install the card. done that . After installing the card i begin to install the driver for the card when doing so it causes the PC to restart and does so without asking you in a windows window . It just restarts by itself. Then after the windows welcome screen I get a black screen with this at the top. "Windows proctection Error. Please restart your computer. I do so and it keeps giving me this error. I have to go into safe mode and remove the Voodoo3 device driver to get windows back.
