In many cases the onboard GPU will be automatically deactivated. If you are having any issues then you will have to disable it within the BIOS.
If you need to enter the BIOS, I can give you some vague instructions, but because I don't have your BIOS, I won't be able to give you anything clear as the BIOS for one motherboard is not the same as another motherboard.
