INew AGP video card vs old onboard video

Recently installed a new nVIDIA Stealth AGP video card and was wondering IF I need to flip any dip switches on the motherboard in order to cancel or shut off the on board video. Of course the monitor is plugged into the new AGP card.

What model and operating system, etc., do you have?

Consider viewing the "VIDEO FAQ" article at the top of the forum, .

If you didn't disable the onboard video, pay particular attention to #6 topic in the FAQs.

Sorry about that! I have a one year old 4600 running WindowsXP home edition with service pack 2. The video card I got from Dell is an ATI Stealth 128MB AGP S80. Sure enough I did NOT disable the onboard video.
