Installing my New Video Card
    #769578 - 07/23/02 06:38 AM (18 years, 7 months ago)

Hey everyone,

Well I just got my new Vid Card, a GEFORCE 4 MX420 64MB. My OEM card is integrated onto the motherboard so I dont have a AGP slot. Therefore I had to buy a PCI Slot version. I know it sucks but that is my only option short of replacing the Motherboard which I cant do right now.

Well I will have to disable my original Vid card .

My question to you is, when do I do it. Do I cut the compter off, install the card, cut the computer on, install the software, cut the computer off and go into setup when its booting back up.

Or do you install the software. cut off the computer, put in the card and then go into setup on the way in.

I figured one of you have done this before, so I thought I would ask the pro's.

See ya later,

I know this will sound like a crazy idea..... Read the instructions that came with the card.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Most BIOS' are PnP Capable and you shouldn't have to manually disable the onboard video. I would:


If you don't have instructions with the video card:

1 Shut Down.
2 Install The Video Card...
3 Boot up right up until you see the windows splash screen then shut off the computer immediately.
4 Boot into the BIOS and check the onboard video settings. Onboard vid should be disabled automatically, if not, disable it.
5 Boot normally and Install the drivers for the video card.
