    A couple weeks ago I installed a video card and disabled my onboard card. Now how do I uninstall the video card (returning it for a better one) and go back to the onboard card? I'm waiting on the new card to get here and I just want to take this one out. I know I have to go to Device Manager/Display adapters and disable it, but I don't see my onboard card anywhere. Will the onboard 'come back' after I take the video card out? Thanks.

    How did you disable the onboard video? I would bet you need to go into the bios and re enable the card because that had to be where you disabled it and do not disable any video cards in Device Manager. With newer systems, there really is no need to disable onbaord video as bios settings usually allow agp or pci-express when installed or onboard when none installed.

    You asked the same questions and had the same line of thinking I had....yeah you will probably have to re-enable the onboard in bios. Now I do know that you will want to uninstall any of those utilities and old drivers for the card you took back before you install the new card. ESPECIALLY if you are going from nvidia to ati or vice versa.
