Calm down...

You disable onboard graphics through the BIOS. When your system is booting you should see the motherboards splash screen and somewhere an indication like <Press Delete to Enter Setup>. Follow the screens to the area that disables onboard video. Your motherboard manual should explain how.

and life goes on...

Ricky, Two Other Locations I Can Think Of..

One location for disabling the intergrated/onboard video is in the BIOS settings..You'll need to restart the computer, pressing the appropriate BIOS setup key, and when the BIOS settings display screen loads, navigate to the appropriate section, possibly "Integrated Peripherals" and disable the onboard video device and enable the AGP or PCI card...

You usually can get away with disabling the intergrate video card in the Device Manager..Open the Device Manager, then click on the + sign next to the "Display Adapters" listing to display your specific video device. RIGHT click on the specific device, choose "Properties"..On the "General" tab, at the bottom of the window, in the "Device Usage" section, use the drop down arrow to select "Do not use this device (disable)", then click on OK.

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
