Hi, I was thinking about removing my XFX 8600 GT on my Acer T180. I was wondering if it is possible to go back to my integrated graphics that I've used before upgrading to the 8600 GT. Will it affect my system in any sort of way? Thank You

PS, I forgot the name of my Integrated Graphic driver

Go to the Device Manager
Expand the Display Adapters listing
Uninstall the XFX 8600 GT
Don't let the unit restart, turn it off
Remove the video card
Attach the monitor to the onboard video
Restart the unit
If you did not uninstall the onboard drivers when you installed the video card you should be good to go.

I did uninstall the driver. This is what I did when I got the 8600 GT

Uninstall the Integrated Graphics driver in device manager
Turn of PC
Slipped in the new card
Open PC
Install the 8600 Driver
