    Yes. Just remove the card and reboot.
    In some cases you may need to enable onboard video in the BIOS.
    You may want to check if this option exists before you remove the card.

    If you poke around in the BIOS you should find something like "Enable onboard video".
    Look under "Chipset" or the like.
    You could just remove the card an see what happens. You;ll probably be OK. Just replace the card if it doesn't work.
    Why are you doing this anyway?

    Do you have the latest drivers?
    It can't hurt to remove and reset the card.
    Does it restart at other times?
    Any other symptoms?
    The onboard video is likely to be less capable than the add on card.
