    hi, yes, my motherboard has ATI on board video and it's still on. I have a Nvidia geforce 550 ti video card that i much prefer to run my games.

    I'm having a video confusion problem in my games where i can't see some of the video. I was told by the maker of the MOD for the specific game that i need to disable the ATI on board video so there wont be any more conflicts with my Nvidia video card.

    How do i disable the on board video on my motherboard. the motherboard is the following:

    MSI 790FX-GD70

    Thanks.

    to Knucklehead, sorry No it doesn't. i have the owner's manual and i looked in it to see if they might tell me that.

    thanks though. I also read the entire online manual and that didn't help either.

    of course i would have a line written in BOLD type stating" how to disable on-board video". only because so many people who play games on their computers actually get a real video card that is much better than the cheap on-board stuff.

    thanks for your suggestion though.

    to etaf, i was just in the bios and i didn't see any thing that remotely looked like it had anything to do with on-board video.

    thanks though.

    I looked at the pictures of the 790FX-GD70 on the
    MSI site....where is the motherboard video port?
    Can't disable something that isn't there.

    I downloaded the manual and had a quick look and that motherboard does not have onboard video as stated by tom6049. I did notice under Advanced Bios Features > Primary Graphics Adapter with a default setting of [PCI-E]
