here's my problem.

i installed a 32mb Hercules Prohet 4000 (PIC) vid card into my machine, but i have no idea what .inf files to delete for my old onboard video, nor do i know if that is causing the problem. After i instal the new card and boot up, it says it found new hardware and finds the software for it ect...
But, it does it twice because it keeps finding and reinstalling the software for my old onboard video too.

heres some info, let me know if you need more

windows ME
Gygabyte - GA-6WMM7 motherboard w/intel 810 chipset.
BIOS is set to add-on as primary

please help.
ill be checking this post every 15 minutes

Welcome to the forums scully.............:D

Take a look in your bios and see if there is a page that will allow you to disable the onboard video.

If there is disable it, Save and shutdown.

Install the new card and boot up.

Post back with your results.

thanks for the reply

but unfortunately, i cannot disable my onboard video in BIOS. I ve looked many times in the past week.lol
I have tried checking the box "disable in this hardware profile" in the device manager, but that doesnt work either.

Could it be the .inf files??
how do i find out which ones to delete?

this is getting frustrating, i cant play any of the newer games.

btw, this may interest or give you some idea or something.

When i start my pc up and start Ghost Recon, i can play a mission with no problems sometimes. But if i close Ghost recon, and then open it again, the problems start. Even on the main menu screen theres lines all over the place.
If and when i finally get in the game, i cant see anything unless i look straight down, or straight up. weird huh.

my device manager shows the prohet video card, and a GA compatible display adapter under other devices, and it has a yellow question mark beside it


please help me.:confused: :no:

Okay... here we go... first we need to be able to disable the on board video, so you can go Here and get the latest BIOS update. I'm looking through the manual for your motherboard right now.... do you know what version the PCB is? The newest is 4.0 if that helps.

Nevermind the PCB thing... I misread something.... these gigabyte manuals are CRAP! I can't find anything on disabling onboard video, and the manual is 93 pages long in pdf format so it's a lot of needless scrolling... the search function is crap too. We'll get this taken care of though.

Oh, and it couldn't hurt to download the newest VGA driver while your at it....

For the info, all of the red text is actually links to where you need to go to find the info it's asking for.... you best bet would be to open a new text file, and copy and paste the info in there after you get it and then post it all at once.
