    Drivers question

    I have an on board graphics card that **** the bed. I have a PCI-E card that I am replacing it with. When it comes to the on board graphics card drivers do I need to uninstall those before I install the new cards drivers?

    thx

    no don't worry about them... just have the drivers ready to install once you put the card in and fire it up. The computer will see the new hard ware so just ignore the pop ups and then install the driver as usual.

    AMD and nvidia do not play well together. Check to see if they are conflicting brands. If so, remove the old drivers.

    Yeah I'm assuming this is onboard intel.... but yeah 24, david does have a point that some onboard is a ATI or nvidia chipset.. look in the add/remove programs and uninstall once you put the new card in just ignore the new hardware pop ups as I said up earlier prior to the new drivers.

    Didn't have any issues with it after I set it up as it was working fine so I think I will leave it as is. If I see any issues after then I will uninstall old drivers.
