    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

    If you haven't tried to install that video card yet, go into the BIOS and see what the settings are for the video/graphics/display.

    Depending on how old that computer is and what BIOS it has, it may or may not auto-detect and enable the video card and disable the on-board graphics.


    After you install the video card, make sure you connect the monitor to its port and not to the integrated port.

    After you start the computer, install the driver software for the video card.
