Okay just in case I run into this in the future...

Lets say a motherboard had a bad on-board Graphics card. So I install a bus type Graphic card.

How is the info going to come unto the screen, if in the BIOS it was set up to be in the on-board card.

Does it autamatically look for a bus card before jumping into on-board card? :flowers: \

or will I need to clr the C-mos?

WEll thanks :thumbsup:

with most modern motherboards it should, in theory automatically detect the dedicated card. If it doesn't, then I would try a CMOS reset. If that doesnt work, then its hope to luck the integrated works long enough to get into the BIOS to change the settings.

The computer will by default, load the on board video controller unless specified otherwise through your BIOS. In the BIOS you should look for if its set to on-board, PCI or PCIe

Just for additional information, recently i reinstalled windows on my computer, i had installed a PCI video card before the new OS. When i re-intalled windows, the BIOS was still set to PCI. The video worked also, without the drivers installed yet. When i switched the video to the onboard connection the video did not work untill i changed my BIOS from PCI to onboard.

<EDIT>Sorry if i stepped ontop you Patriot, when i went to reply no one had yet.

hehe no worries done it myself a few times. And your right, many motherboards are set to recognize the integrated card, particuarly older ones. however, most newer boards (not all) are getting to the point they will boot up a dedicated card without making changes in the BIOS. Not all, but its one of those things where if you cant access the BIOS you just have to find out by trial and error.

wow thanks guys..

Okay so I if I so happen to run into a old M.B. with a bad Graphics, and I can't get it to show anything in the screen thru the On board graphics, or the dedicated because bios is set to on-board.

I try to clear C-mos and it does not work, what is another Good Option?

Or do I have to get a new M.B.

probably have to replace the motherboard. If its set to by default to load the integrated, and the integrated is bad, then no matter what you do you wont be able to change it. If the default is to look for the dedicated first then resetting the CMOS will fix it, but if not your out of lucky. Sorry. Though, in all honestly, integrated video cards are usually combined with the motherboards chipset-chances are if the integrated video is out, the motherboard itself is bad. not a 100% garentee, but prolly like a 85% chance that the whole board is bad.
