Control Panel > System > Hardware tab > Device Manager > under Display adaptor.....right click it and go to properties...on the bottom will say Device usage...from there choose disable from the drop down menu. Are you installing a graphic card? If you are, which I'm assuming, install the graphic card first, then disable onboard, and update drivers for graphic card.
