<_< First time up so here goes.
I am attempting to upgade my graphics too Radeon 9600se. My instructions call for removing the current graphic board of which I do not have as it is on the Mother Board. How do I turn of the graphic board on the Mother Board? Also instructions call for un-installing the current driver.
These are the issues that are blocking my progress.
My OS is XP, Gateway 510 series 2800433.

Thanks

Hi Jambo

Once you install your video card into the VGA slot onto the motherboard, the onboard video will automatically shut off and the video card will take over, install the newer drivers for the card off the cd and you should be good to go. I would not try to uninstall the older drivers, if it is onboard video, it is probably drivers that have been installed by XP anyway.

If you want to test, put in your video card, leave your monitor connected to the onboard video and boot up your cp, you will not get a display until you change over to the card. (Please turn off the cp before you change the connections though) blink.gif

Hope this helps
