Default How to Disable the GPU

My motherboard came integrated with a GPU. I installed a new one in my PCI-E slot. I want to disable the old one but when I look it up in the device manager it is not there, just the new one. I was told if I do not disable the old one it will still use up memory?

Are there any other places where hardware can be disabled other than the device manager?

Default Re: How to Disable the GPU

There should be an option in the bios to disable integrated graphics. Depending on the brand mobo you have it'll be under something like hardware options or power options.
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.
