Graphics problem

  -Beb- 17:21 06 Feb 04


I recently bought a Gainward FX5200 PCI graphics card (no AGP slot as my mobo had onboard graphics on an Intel 82810). Anyways, I installed the graphics card and disabled the onboard graphics by using device manager as I couldn’t find a BIOS setting for it. I switched my monitor over to the new graphics card and booted up windows (XP pro SP1) and noticed that everything on my screen had a sort of shadow of itself, and when the resolution is turned up this shadowing effect worsens. I have downloaded the latest nVidia drivers, but this has made no difference.

Can anyone please help?

are you sure there is no setting in the bios to enable and disable VGA?

look for a features setup page in your bios.

Ive looked and cant find anything to do with onboard graphics, only stuff like the onboard audio. Will this really make a differance?

Yes, if your onboard agp is not disabled, it will have a detrimental effect on graphics.

If you are sure there is no bios setting, use the uninstall tab in device manager.

would that not cause windows just to try installing again on next restart ?

Yes it does, its really annoying

whats your mobo make and model ?

possibly, but hopefully it will detect the other card in use. If not the installation can be cancelled.

Also it is possibly a jumper setting.

-BeB- what is the mobo you are using, it should be a simple task to find a user manual fir it.?

Sorry pinka, that thought just came to my head. ( i,m only waffling cos' i've made a sack of my last posting)!
