Question Disabling Onboard Video

This is stupid question, and possibly in the wrong section, but how do I disable the onboard VGA in the BIOS menu? I have an MSI motherboard, anyone else with this mobo, please help?

Send a message via Yahoo to talldude123

start key -> pause (opens up system properties)

click the hardware tab, click on Device Manager

look for Display Adapters, disable your onboard one. (Make sure nothing is connected to it!)
