    Have Desprom 2000 (5133) & it has onboard Video. Running win95. Want to install ATI Wonder Card. Do I disable video in CMOS before or after I install video Card. Are there any jumpers or switch's on motherBd to reset? Please advise as ASAP. Thank YOU!!

    I believe the procedure is as follows:
    Boot into safe mode
    Remove video card from System CPL
    Boot into BIOS
    Disable onboard video
    install ATI Wonder

    Now there may be a jumper or 2 you have to use, but i'd need to take a look at your mobo's manual. But id advise waiting till a someone with a bit more knowledge than i posts something similar

    BTW, i couldn't find anything under the name "desprom"
    Just remember, i could be wrong.

    I looked but can't find any info on your machine. Generally there are two ways, some machines will automatically detect the vid card and disable the onboard. Some you either have to change a jumper or a setting in the bios. Whypick1 has the rest of it.

    I don't have the same machine, but I've done what you want to do. If you have a BIOS option to disable the video card you probably don't have the jumpers. To check, go into your BIOS at startup and look around for "onboard video" if you have it, exit the BIOS and bootup to windows. Go into control panel>system and delete the device and shut down. Install the new video card and bootup to the BIOS. Toggle the onboard video to disabled and save settings and exit. Windows should pickup the new video card and ask for the drivers.

    If you don't have the BIOS listing for the onboard video, then you'll have to read the MOBO doc's for the location of the jumpers.
