Video Card Question

Recommended Posts

I got this video card (agp 4x) from my bro in law couple of days ago.

I want to see if it still works , but I'm kind scared to use it.

Right now, my secondary PC has intergrated graphics. (never installed a video card on a mobo with intergrated)

So, here are the steps that I think I have to do.

1) install video card

2) boot computer (vga cord in the intergrated graphics port)

3) go to bios and disable onboard video

4) reboot, but place vga cord in the video card slot

Now...what I fear is that, the agp video card will not work...and therefore I will get no display.

and since I won't get any display, how would I enable onboard video again in the bios!

Just install it if you have the APG port in your system and then hook up your monitor to it. It should just disable the onboard graphics without going into the BIOS to disable it. At least most of them will nowadays. And of course you need the drivers for it.
