I read this a while ago and MSI replaced some boards[it said]because some poeple just added the card without first turning OFF the board graphics,and that damaged the mobo apparently.
How exactly do i turn OFF the on-board graphics in BIOS ?
I can't find the mobo manual but i D/L 'ed it and i'm none the wiser now.I don't play games but the on-board graphics are poor to say the least and wmv files look very blocky when i view them.It's a ATI RX 9250 128mb AGP card that i have and i have the standard on-board graphics TV-out bracket is still installed that i know i will need to remove too.
I obviously don't want to damage anything which is why i'm asking the experts[you]before i proceed.I know that this board has a bottleneck from the on-board graphics and this will bypass that,and some poeple i've spoke to have never heard of this problem but i assure you i did read about it about 6 months ago.
My board is version 1 BTW and i'm running 2 x 512mb PC 3200 ram.It all works perfectly well and i just need to install this card properly,which is brand new BTW.I thought the on-board graphics would be OK but i was wrong and they're not very good,hence the AGP card.Thanks to anyone who helps
