Default Uninstall defaul graphics driver?

Hi again
I bought a Nvidia 7600GT and installed it, everything's fine. Wondering if it matters whether or not I uninstall the onboard video card driver (the default card that came with the pc on the motherboard)?

If it doesn't hurt anything, I'll leave it alone.

Thanks for the help!

I would just disable it in the BIOS, and the driver for it should go into a dormant-type state. Once it is disabled in BIOS, it shouldn't be detected by Windows any more.

Well, u don't need to do anything. The motherboard or bios probably disabled the onboard video card when it detected the new Nvidia card.

It does not hurt leaving the video card driver installed.
