I have a HP Pavilion 501n computer, windows XP-Home as my OS, and the original video card is an integrated intel 82810E graphics controller.

I went out and bought a PCI video card. It's an Asylum, GeForce4 MX 440-SE, with 64mb of DDR Memory. When I installed it onto the motherboard and booted up windows, it doesn't even recognze it. I was hoping to run multiple vid cards, but i have no idea how that's done. Or, in case I cannot run multiple video cards, to be able to disable the integrated video card and just have it run off of the pci card that I installed. I looked in BIOS for a way to disable the integrated video card, but there's no option. So, I thought I would try to disable it by changing the jumper settings. But Hewlet-Packard, in their infinite wisdom, decided not to include a mother board manual, and the only jumpers I see seem to only affect the power settings.

Does anyone know how I can do either of these things?

Hi,
[tsg=welcome][/tsg]



Hopefully, these instructions from HP support will answer your questions and allow you to install the new video card. Step by step instructions must be followed for it to work.

Well, I paid 100 bucks for my card. I bought it because many of the new games coming out simply will not run with my current video card. UT 2003, NOLF2, TomClancy's Splinter Cell, just to name a few. Some kind of video card error, don't remember the exact thing though. I tried updating drivers and settings, so it must be the card. I think the problem is that the card will not run in 32 bit mode, it only goes up to 24. But I figured buying a new card would fix it. If I could only get the darn thing to work.....

And, thanks for that last post, but I tried those instructions already, and my computer crashed!!! So I had to shell out 100 bucks for Windows xp, bleh.
