Hi everyone. I recently bought a e-EVGA 7600GS agp 256MB 8x. Before this i had an integrated chip on my Hp Pavillion AMD atholon 3000+ model A735w-b xp. I was trying to make this integrated chip run faster and i went into bios and changed this aperture setting to 64 which was the current spec on that chip. It was by default on automatic, but ithought to be sure that integrated was getting its 64mb of memory. Now my new card recognizes only having 64, i need to set this to automatic, then i can set allocated memory to 256 MB. But these options are gone since i downloaded and installed this e-EVGA 7600 GS. I need to uninstall it and go back into bios to change the settings i thought would help my integrated chip work at its full potential. I was told by evga to search in google for video driver cleaner. But i later realized (lol) what about my add remove programs ? Or even my display properties where i can roll back drivers uninstall drivers (in my adapter properties)? Wont these two work best if so which one? Thanks for your time

Why cant you just disable the on-board video in the BIOS?

hhmm sorry im confused, Disable my onboard video is that integrated or my new video card? i am back to normal now with my integrated chip, i went in bios and indeed i have different options, and my on board video memory is now on auto, 64 Mb was highest option or auto. Now i was told by hp that i can just install my new hardware, shut down pc install the card and put the cd back in and install the rest of the drivers, this is suppose to automatically disable and detect my new supported agp card.

is there a setting in bios to disable on board video, if so follow srx660 suggestion and turn it off,
then install your new video card etc hope everthing goes well.

hi,

under onboard video memory disable this one.

cheersxxx1

make sure that you have a video card already installed before disabling onboard video memory doing so can cause the monitor to go black until a video card is added or the BIOS is reset.

If the onboard selection isn't there, its probably because it was on auto. Thus automatically turning itself off once you installed the new card.
xxx1, if he has a new card, he won't want onboard video on.

okay i think i understand now this Hp is recognizing myy new card, i also tried updating my nvidia drivers in my properties, but there were no better matches. I thinking maybe a psu issue as mine is only 250 watts and 14 amps on a 12volt rail. The v-card makers say there specs might be over rated but my psu was not enough? To get a 350watts with 18-20 amps on the 12 volt rail?
