    Hi. I have an integrated intel 82810 graphics controller. I bought a geforce 4 mx420 pci card (i know not the best) installed it and saw little diffrence in my gaming performance (mostly counter-strike) with my integrated card i got about 30 fps, and with the geforce from 20-40! i decided to try a radeon 32mb card i had and it gave me more stable fps than the geforce about 30 lol.
    so, i am using the radeon card right now ive installed it fine, i have the newest drivers, direct x all that. I deleted my integrated cards' drivers but everytime i restart they reapear in my device manager. Could this be the reason for my gaming performance?

    I have an hp intel celeron processor, 320 md sdram, 766mhz, 20 gb.

    help will be greatly appreaciated

    Most likely this is not the problem. The drivers keep appearing because the video is integrated and windows automatically loads the drivers if they are not installed. However, try going into device manager, double click the integrated video card, then there should be an option to disable it. If you're gonna go back to your integrated video card for any reason, remember to enable it, or it won't work.

    Hi xplicit,

    Have you disabled your onboard video in the BIOS?
