Intel Integrated Graphics: Accidentally Disabled

Hi folks,

I've just purchased a new PC specs below. I was having horrific frame rate problems when I attempted to run games (9 in Saints Row 3 according to Fraps) at the recommended gtx 660 settings. I also noticed that my GPU useage was 0% on the GPU monitor. I had a look in device manager and stupidly decided to try and disable the integrated HD graphics to force useage of the NVIDIA card. Now my monitor is completely black and I can't seem to fix it.

I've tried taking the battery out of the motherboard for one minute and then replacing but the problem remains. I've also tried plugging a HDMI cable into the NVIDIA GPU at the back of my computers case but this doesn't seem to work either!

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'd really not like to fork out more money to have a technician fix my stupid error.

Intel Core i5 4570 3.2GHz with 6MB Cache Processor
Asus Geforce GTX660-DC2O-2GD5 Graphic Card,
Gigabyte GA-H81M-S2PH Motherboard
Kingston 8GB Hyper X 1600MHz RAM

Pioneer DVR-221LBKS DVD-RW

  1. Best answer
    You should have had a cable plugged into the GPU to begin with, not the motherboard. That's why your GPU usage was 0%, it wasn't even using it because you weren't using it to output video.

    There may be a jumper on your motherboard for clearing the CMOS. Look in the manual of your motherboard for it, and give that a shot.
  2. Brilliant it's turned on.

    FAced with:

    BIOS has been reset - please decide how to continue

    -Load optimisd defaults then boot
    - Load optimised defaults then reboot
    -Enter BIOS

    You're a champ.
  3. Shoul have mentioned, which one should I select?
  4. Good deal. If you have any changes you need to make, enter the BIOS, make them and then save and reboot.

    If not, I would load optimized defaults then reboot. Just to make sure it can make it past POST again and boot on it's own.
