Integrated video port damaged

by goieda / February 5, 2004 2:22 AM PST

A friend of mine have a desktop with a mb 754LMR, which has, among others, agp video integrated. The video port is having problems, and I recommended to install a brand new PCI video card, but I cannot disable the integrated video in the BIOS. I deleted the video drivers in w98, and install the new card, but the boot procedure does not show anything on the monitor. Can somebody tell me how to do that and how to use the pci video card as my video default?

Hi,

you don't need to change MB at all. Even there is not "disable" function for integrated video in BIOS, you can switch "Primary Graphics Adapter" to PCI, PCI setting still lets the onboard display work and allows the use of a second display card installed in a PCI slot. Than you can disable AGP int.video in WIN. It really works.

Adding to the other posts. If you can't disable the on-board video via the bios or change it to another port(PCI) as suggested by another poster, you're pretty much stuck. However, if it can be disabled or changed to allow another video source, then a installable video card is the answer. If not, then a mtrbd. replacement is it. Understand, if the video port got hosed, it may have effected other parts of the mtrbd. and whatever caused that may still be present, so consider testing other componets of system elsewhere to eliminate that, otherwise it may bring down the new mtrbd. The most probable source of problems maybe the power supply, thus having a stable one is very important, look for 400W+ unit, though a decent 350W may suffice but for cost, 400W+ is much better. Hope this helps...

good luck -----Willy
