Hi

I hope this is the right place gor my problem

I have a Biostar motherboard with onboard graphics. I have now installed a PCI E graphics card but when I put connection in the new port i get no display -- only if I put in back in my original onboard connection

I have installed the drivers for new card so I am at a loss as in Device manager and everest nVIDIA GeForce 7300 SE/7200 GS Video Adapter is showing but also obviously southbridge still has South Bridge: nVIDIA nForce 6100-4xx (MCP61) showing

Do I Have to switch off the onboard graphics somehow through the Bios?

Motherboard ID 06/16/2008-NF-MCP61-6A61KB0CC-00

Any help would be appreciated again and if you need more info let me know

Regards

Craig

Yes, you do need to change the bios settings, most likely. Sometimes "auto" doesn't work, or it might just be plain set to "onboard" or the like.
