Anybody knows how to disable the on-board graphics of my MSI K7N420 Pro (nForce 420-D). The mobo manual doesn't say anything about this thing

Try inserting a card, many chipsets simply disable the onboard graphics when a card is detected!

There should be an option that allow you to set AGP card display <b><font color=red>first</b></font color=red> (usually its name is <b><font color=blue>Initial Display First</b></font color=blue> in Advance chipset or Integrated Peripherals menu).

:smile: Good or Bad have no meaning at all, depends on what your point of view is.

Yes, under "Integrated Peripherals" menu, there's an option named "Initial Display First". It lets me choose one of these two options- "PCI Slot" and "Onboard/AGP".

Sounds like Crashman said, this mobo will disable onboard graphics when a card is detected.

previous experiences with MSI boards don't actually allow you to disable their onboard graphics, but as crash said, if you install a card, and plug your monitor into that, it'll take over your video functions
