    Hi all I need help here,

    I'm trying to figure out how to fix a friends computer problem, problem is the monitor comes on but there is nothing but a black screen. I took another monitor over there and got the same results. So i was thinking the video adapter is bad, I open up the case and see the video is onboard. There are no AGP slots only PCI, so I said ok i'll set them up with a pci video adapter. Now here is the question, do i boot into bios and disable the onboard vid adapter or what? Here are the system specs, not sure if i have to change a jumper on the mother board or if i can disable in bios. Any help will be welcome. Thanks

    Steve

    just install your new PCI card and let it install. You can go to device manager after and disable the onboard video there
    "disable in this hardware profile"

    Couldn't hurt to go into the SETUP (BIOS) and look and see if you can disable the onboard video. Some systems will have an AUTO setting which means if you plug in a video card, that will over ride the onboard video. This may only apply to AGP though. Your link doesn't work, at least for me, so I'm not sure what we are dealing with. If I knew the motherboard mfg, I (we) might be able to direct you to a site with jumper info, if any.
