INstalling new graphics card and disabling onboard graphics
I am thinking about buying a new AGP araphics card. I current ly have SIS Real256E onboard graphics, which are 64mb shared.
I have a free AGP slot and want to install the new card there.
I have read in differnet places that you need to disable the onboard graphics first or sometimes the bios will automatically detext and change it.
I have already been in my bios/cmos and seen that where it says "onboard video memory" it has a list of 16mb,32,64 and 128. This is currently set to 64.
Where it says "Primary display master", it has a choice of 'PCI' or 'VGA/onboard' and this is current ly set to PCI, which really confuses me because I thought this would be set to 'AGP/onboard' because the computer uses onboard graphics.
So, could anyone tell me the steps for me to install a new graphics card under the above conditions.
thanks, from Edd
