    Hello! My video card is:

    Intel(R)810e Chipset Graphics Driver(DC133FSB133)4.11.01.1321

    I'm planning on putting in a video card for linux so that I can use X. How can I disable the onboard video card so that I can use the new, regular card? I don't think I can use the onboard thing when I have another video card. Thanks for any help that can be provided!

    Hi maxim
    Some motherboards have a jumper on them to disable the onboard video. There might also be a place somewhere in the BIOS to turn it off and finally some motherboards automatically turn off the on board video if a video card is installed.
