    Hello, I'm having problems disabling a Dell Dimension 2400 Intel Integrated Extreme 3D graphics card and installing a new Radeon 9200 SE card. Every attempt to attach the new card results in a power up w/ nothing being displayed on screen (no BIOS or anything).

    Is there a safe way to disable the on-board graphics card, that (in case the new card has problems) we can fall back to it without damaging the system? The new card is PCI by the way.

    Thank You,
    DrakeonX

    You can try this from Dell

    Dell2400

    Please let us know if it works because the last time this came up it didn't appear to work. I also saw a post on one of the Dell forums about a BIOS update allowing you to disabling onboard video. Don't know if this is true so I'll look into it.

    Well, I ran into that site already, and although it does seem helpful, it seems to be almost impossible to find the appropriate driver (maybe the card is defective?). But the CD-ROM won't install on windows XP, and so far I've tried about 10 different drivers to no avail.

    I'm starting to think the card is faulty because now that it is plugged in (monitor is still on the old card), the new card does not appear anywhere on the device manager nor the "add new hardware" option.

    Can someone give me a link to the appropriate Radeon 9200SE Driver pack for Windows XP so that it can finally be determined if its a bad card or not?

    Thank's again
