Error Messages:


I have a matsonic MS8318E mother board (AMD Athlon XP 2100 processor) and I wish to change my on board graphics adapter(SIS 961),to a Geforce 2 MX(400) PCI, after installing my card and drivers then restarting,my pc loads up but before the Windows ME screen comes up,the screen turns black and locks up.I think the other chip set is stoping it from working and has to be disabled, can anybody shed any light on this.THANKS

There should be an option in the bios to disable the onboard video.You can also disable it from the Device Manager but as I'm not familiar with the board I cant  be 100 per cent sure. Even so it should have been disabled automaticly when you put in the new card.

Some motherboards have jumpers that disable the onboard video instead.
Look up your manual or MSI's website.
