I know that this question was asked a little earlier, but I am not sure of how much it applies to my situation. I have a Dell 4600, Windows XP Home, and I have Intel Extreme Graphics 2. I have purchased an eVGA nVidia 5500 AGP 256MB graphics card upgrade. For installation, I have some questions. Before I put the card in I am not sure what to do with the Integrated graphics. Do I uninstall Extreme Graphics 2 from the control panel? Or do I just disable it from device manager? (I know you should not have two drivers installed at once for video. I know that in the BIOS, AGP is set to auto, so I do not have a problem there in changing from Integrated to AGP. So what it comes down to is this:
1. Disable in device manager.
2. Uninstall extreme graphics 2 from control panel.
3. Turn off computer.
4. Install new AGP card - BIOS automatically will detect, and use instead of integrated. - (So does this render disabling it in device manager useless?)
5. Install new drivers from nVidia website. (But what will my display look like if I have no graphics controller, unless there is one in Windows?)
6. Restart and adjust configurations as desired.
I have read a lot of places, and it seems as if I see conflicting accounts. Could someone please confirm this, or make changes where necessary?
Thanks so much.
