no video adapter settings in bios

by tyrent53 / February 27, 2010 2:29 AM PST

I have a HP p6122f with vista and a onboard nvidia 9100 and i bought a nvidia GeForce 9500 GT , when i went to the bios to change the video adapter settings in the bios from onboard to PCI-e there was no settings to do this . I then went to device manager to disable the onboard video which i did . then installed my new card and downloaded the drivers , when i went to play a game a box showed up which displayed
this ,"error loading NVCPL.DLL access is denied" So i decided to remove the video card and rebooted my computer ,which brought it back as before and the error loading nvcpl.dll box was gone . Is there something i can do to fix this , so it doesn't happen .. I tried removing drivers as well when i did this lost my internet connection , i did start to get frustrated..

This area changes with each machine

And with the bios installed.

Today I rarely see a disable. I sometimes never find a PCI, PCIE or AGP "choice". It's all done differently so don't get caught up in how it worked on other machines, the past or some instruction that told you to disable onboard video.

That error message is often a sign I get to uninstall, remove the video card drivers and install them again. There is no step by step it seems since each machine varies in the steps so all I can offer is a guide to what I do.
