Hi,

I was trying to disable the video card and try to use the one onboard. I unistall and disable as I was told. I plug in the vga to the onboard video card and nothing happen, blank screen. I hook it back to the video card and went to BIOS. I'm sorry I'm really a dummy in PC and i can't find anywhere that i can enable my onboard video card.



Cmos Version (v02.61 American Megatrends) (msi motherboard am2 platform)
Any clue what i can do?

Hi,

How do i chk the power supply?

Thanks


The only way i know of is to open the case and look at it. Also, make note of the brand.

Was this a machine that was bought or custom made? Since there is onboard video and a video card, was the card an upgrade to the original configuration of the machine?



This machine was a gift from a friend, but i believe is a custom made one. Its one of those shuffle barebone (those tiny cases) I'm not sure when he brought it did the motherboard came with it or did he buy it seperate. My friend gave me the video card to boost up performance, it wasn't a upgrade to the original configuration of the machine. When i first had the machine, i used the onboard video card, while gaming it was alittle laggy. So my friend brought me the video card to boost the performance. I had the video card install for like more then 1/2 year, and everything was fine, till recently.

Were you able to get to BIOS at all?
If so, look around for any video setting.
I can't give you more detailed instructions, because it all depends on BIOS type you have.

It may look like this, for instance:
