how do i turn the on board video off in the bios
theres options to turn off on board audio and modem but no video
i think the drivers may be conflicting with some games as some programs read the onboard sound first and then looks on the pci add on

It may be easier to just disable them in device manager. Go into device manager, and find the display adapters section. click the drop down box, right click on the onboard graphics and click disable. After you restart your computer, they should be off.

Some onboard videos will be disabled when a dedicated card is installed.

What is the make and model of you computer?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Some onboard implementations are disabled by allocating 0 video memory size, some, as dc3 comments, are turned off when a video adapter card is detected. Some motherboards leave the onboard video operational as a secondary video adapter. This is a normal situation, lots of people deliberately run two video adaptors without any conflicts. If the onboard is really not required it must be disabled in Windows with this type of motherboard.

I'm not quite sure what it means with respect to onboard video that "some programs read the onboard sound first..."

As dc3 said, if you want we can check by brand & model to see exactly how best to deal with it.

In the absence of much information from PB on such an oldie, the general statement from Intel may be the best we'll get:
