Ok I just got a new video card for my computer. However I cannot get my computer to run with it. It is a ATI radeon 9200 SE 128mb AGP. I tried to install it as per the directions, and the computer would not start up correctly. The instructions said something about disabling the on board graphics through bios, but my bios does not seem to have a way to shut off the on board graphics, how else can i disable them so the computer will start up with the new video card? here are my specs

The motherboard is an ASUS MEB-VM rev. 1.01

Operating system Windows XP service pack 2 build 2600

BIOS is Phoenix 1.01 12/3/1998

I don't think your card and motherboard are compatible. :thumbsup: The card's speed is backwards compatible, but the voltage is not. I suppose if this is the case, you'll have to get a new motherboard or older graphics card. You don't need to turn off the onboard graphics; just plug your monitor into the card instead of the onboard adapter.
