First of all I updated the power supply to a Thermaltake TR2 600W. Then I purchased a AMD Radeon™ HD 6670 graphics card. The problem is that my computer has integrated graphics and when I go into BIOS to disable it , that particular thing is greyed out and I am unable to click on it to disable it. No matter what I do I cannot install this card correctly and im so frustrated I could scream! Also, I bought him a 26" Sanyo LCD tv to use as a monitor...Do I need to hook that up a certain way? I know he wanted this game so bad and was so happy I had gone to all of these lengths to give that to him and still have yet to make it happen PLEASE HELP!!!!
I know from what limited knowledge I have after installing a defective GPU sold to me by E machines, the monitor will connect directly to the GPU (video card) port, not in the same place the monitor did when you purchased the PC. There should be a new port down where you installed the new GPU. Beyond that, I have no clue how to deactivate the integrated graphics. I'm still searching for a new GPU to put in my -03w. Maybe because you are using the old monitor port, the PC will not let you disable the integrated graphics feature.
