If you have intergrated video you will have to go into BIOS and disable the onboard video. John
ok i have a :
160 gig hd
i have interated video.
i installed a radeon 9250 pci 256. turned on the computer and everything looked good then it got to windows, the blue bar that slides across the bottom moved once then stopped. i just hit the power button and then it wants me to boot in safe mode.
I took the card out the computer runs fine; i thought it messed up because of the cd, so i installed the cd and everything put the card back in and it still did not work, i whent into bios and looked around, i really dont know what to look for exactly but i into graphics something under the advanced tab, and i changed it from auto to pci ext (the other option was pci-e ext) that still did not work, ive looked on ati for more drivers i found them but it will not let me install them unless the video card is in and i cant install them because i cant get into windows, so that sould not be the problem. please someone help. it possibly could be something in the device manager i need to unistall?? i dont know please help
