I recently built a decent pc cable of playing call of duty modern warfare 2 and left for dead 2, and i found a graphics card i would like to put in it (the card is nvidia geforce 8400) but i need to diasble the onboard graphics first in order for the graphics card to work. I have the Asus M4N78 PRO motherboard, how do i disable the onboard graphics card?

In Windows 7, click on the Windows Logo (START) and then right click "Computer". Next, Select "Properties". A windows will open, in the top left there will be "Device Manager"... click it.

Now, find "Display Adapters" in the device manager and click on the little arrow next to it(expand). Right click on the onboard graphics card and select "disable".

That's all there is to it. :)

In my experience, both can be enabled, but just have the monitor plugged into the new card(geforce 8400). Have you installed the geforce 8400 yet? Just let me know if you need more help. Good luck!
