Installing Asylum geforce 5200 AGP
I have an Amptron motherboard Pentium4 PCU with S3 Savage4 graphics accelerator on board mobo, when I try to install geforce card in AGP slot, get blank black screen, newby to this, sorry about that, how to disable onboard graphics where AGP slot will work? When I look in add and remove programs all I see is S3 Graphics2 program, S3 Display and S3info2, if I delete all these how will I see to install new card, seems to put cart before horse? I would appreciate any and all help. VIA Chipset P4M266. Thanks catsrdawg.

Ok, We also need your OS. but the first thing you should try is looking at the CD the video card came with, or there should be one. If there is you need to install the Drivers on the CD. If it came with no CD you should go out looking for geforce 5200 drivers on www.google.com .

Did you disable the onboard graphics through your BIOS setup? You have to do that first. On boot up, press "delete" key or whatever key you're prompted to press to enter setup. Depending on your MOB, you need to find the section where your onboard graphics able/disable option is. disable your onboard graphics from there, save changes. Then you can remove those drivers and install your new ones. Always remove your old drivers first. Good luck!

i would remove the drivers for the onboard BEFORE you disable it in the bios like the good Dr said this way you have them outta the way before u even put the new card in ." If you kill a man you're a murderer ..... Kill many and you're a conquerer ....... Kill them all ... your a GOD...."
