How do I disable onboard AGP video?
Trying to help a neighbor install a ATI-PCI 8meg card in a "Maxtech" 3000, (cheapie mistake purchase)it has onboard 4meg AGP, I cant see where to disable the agp in the bios (like the audio can be) so it must take a jumper removal to disable it? She has already had help installing it, (im the 3rd "helper") the card shows up in the display properties and device manager as being ok...would I be right in thinking a jumper needs attention???
Have you tried plugging in the new card? On an HP Netserver that's how it worked. It's worth a try huh?
Yeah the new card is installed along with the drivers, when the monitors connected to the ati card its dead...the original onboard card works...both cards show up in the display properties as if it was a dual monitor setup, if I select the Ati card and reconnect the cable to it, its still dead and it reverts back to the onboard card...im sure its a simple fix, but its new to me...

In my experience, with on board stuff, its usually in the bios or a jumper on the board.
Some also don't disable, like some of the pcchips. I never heard of that brand, but pcchips comes under many names, so i wouldn't be suprised if its a pcchips.
You may want to try disabling the older board on the device manager. Check for conflicts.
Forgot to use the SEARCH feature!!!
Finally realized im not the first with this prob, returned LOTS of info, if I cant sort it out, call me a DORK! I should be ok...
(HAH we shall see)
Try setting Init Display field in the BIOS to PCI. That tells the BIOS what display to initialize first at bootup. I'm not sure if taht will solve the problem, but give it a shot.
