AMD Athlon 2200+
256 DDR RAM
Current Video Adapter:
S3 Graphics ProSavageDDR. Is permanently attached to the motherboard.
Attempting to Install:
ATI Diamond Stealth S120 Radeon 9550 AGP Version
I have installed the card and its drivers but the computer won't accept it as the default graphics adapter. I think this is because it is conflicting with the S3 adapter which unfortunately is part of the motherboard and can't be removed. I have tried to uninstall the S3 adapter, but when I restart after uninstalling, it is still being used as the default. Judging from the system requirements of the new card, my computer supports it in every way.
Anyway, my question is, how can I disable an adapter that is part of the motherboard?
Or, if anyone has succesfully installed a new graphics card on their eMachines PC(One with a graphics adapter that's not removable), how did you do it?
This would be so much easier if they hadn't fused the default adapter to the motherboard :-|
Sorry, I just realised this is in the wrong forum. Could someone move it if possible?
