"i am unable to disable the video drivers, named S3 something and can't install the original intel graphics drivers"

The only reason you would want to disable the onboard video is to install a add-in video card.
If that is what you want to do the onboard video should be automatically disabled when a video card is installed.
If it isn't go in the BIOS setup when you first start the computer & see if the pnboard can be disabled .
If you don't want to go in the bios start the unit with the onboard hooked up
Go to the Control Panel
Click on the Sytem icon
Click on the Hardware tab
Open the device manager
Expand the Display Adapters
right click on the one you DON'T want to use & on the menu click Disable
Proceed to disable it
Turn the unit off
Hook the monitor to the video card
Restart the unit .
