I got a hp comp with windows ME and the video card i got in there is intel video card or something built into my mother board. I am considering on buying a ATI RADEON 32MB SDR Graphics Board uses a pci slot mine doesn't have a agp slot cause it is a cheap new comp. So how would I disable the video card that is built into my motherboard using ME? Can somebody give me step by step on what to do?
Usually the onboard video is disabeled by either a bios option or a jumper. You could check if it's in bios by simply entering them before post and looking for an onboard video disable option. If it's not there, then it is most likely a jumper on your board somewhere, and depending on what kind of manuals you got with the computer you may be able to locate it very easy. The motherboard will probably have something like vid_dis or vid or something to that refrence in the area of the jumper.

You really don't have to disable it. There will be an option for "init first display" probably, and you can toggle it between AGP and PCI. Change that to PCI, put the card in, and boot the machine. Install your drivers. You could come back, and hook up a second monitor to the onboard display and have daul monitors.

I would agree with the earlier posts in this topic and say that the best way forward is either to disable the on board gfx with a bios setting or a jumper on the motherboard.
The other option to "boot vga from", "init first display" or whatever should already be set to PCI as you don't have AGP on the motherboard. Maybe you have the option to switch from Onboard to PCI for vga display.
Have a read through all your bios options...
