Hey everyone i need some help to install the radeon 9250 card. I have put the card in the correct slot and tried installing the software to go with it but it is not working. All i get is a blank screen when i connect to new card. I have a intel extreme graphics card already installed but i am not sure of how to uninstall the software for it. The intel card is with the main board in the back and its not a removable one. How can i remove this card software and driver and make the radeon the main graphics card. Also is there anything i have to do to install the radeon other than putting the card in and installing the software?

If you are running XP, right click my computer, select the Hardware Tab, choose the Device Manager, expand the Display Adapter, remove your old display adapter.

Reboot.

If that doesn't work, use the add remove software and remove all video display software, and repeat the above instructions and remove all video adapters.

Shutdown,

Plug your video card in and you should have only VGA, then install the Video drivers.

It should work.

Ive got a similar problem... I went:
control panel>system>hardware>device manager>display adapters
and disabled my integrated graphics. then i shut the comp down and installed the graphics card. i connected my moniter to the cards vga port and booted up. there was no Dell splash screen or XP loading screen...but in a bout 15 secs the login screen came up. when i booted up the next day, no screen for 1 min! i waited but no screen for 2 hrs! so i had to shut down at the button! i had to boot up in safe mode with the integrated card and now i have an installed card that does not work! any help?

You need to disable the onboard graphics in the BIOS. Someone more familiar with Intel boards may be able to help you in doing that.

Thanks for your replies. The solution i found was to get into the bios set up and enable pci card in the video settings. Then i went to system/device manager and uninstalled my onboard display adapter. After i done this i plugged my monitor into the new card port and it worked as good as gold. Thanks for the help.
