hi everyone. I just installed a geforce 8400gs which i installed on my computer. I know it's crap, I bought it before I knew anything about graphics cards. Anyway my pc has geforce 6150se onboard graphics, and I can't disable it. I have went in my BIOS and set display settings to pci, didn't work. I went into device manager and disabled the 6150 but it just reboots my pc saying the pci display adapter will not work. Does anyone know of a solution to my problem?
You need to disable onboard video via bios, and make sure you have the video option set properly, once you disable the onboard video you will need to switch the monitor cable from the motherboard to the graphics card.
I am looking for help on this as well. I have the same mobo and I am trying to install a radeon hd 4550. When I install the card and try to boot the computer will not start up. When I remove the new card it starts fine. The power supply is a 300 watt which is what the card says it needs.
Yes I have done everything in this forum. I went out and bought a 550 watt power supply last night. Hope to install it today and see what happens.
My computer will not even boot up when the new graphics card is installed. Maybe this will help.
Well the new power supply did nothing. Comuter is a little quieter though.
I really need to get this video card working. I have tried all the video settings in Bios. Disabled video in device manager and uninstalled the original video drivers. I see no place in the Bios to disable the video. Am I missing something there?
I don't know what kind of card you are trying to install, but I bought a geforce 9600gt which is a pci-e x16 card, and it installed fine. For some reason this board isn't compatible with pci graphics cards.
