Hello, I found out about this site on Cnet Radio, so I thought I'd give it a try!
I recently bought a new video card, an XPert 128 PCI. I have one of those motherboards with built-in AGP video. So I installed the card and the drivers and went into the BIOS to specify that I'm no longer using the built-in video, but now every single time I boot up Windows, it detects the card and asks me to install the drivers. How do I make it stop detecting the old video card? My system is an AMD 500 running Windows 2000 Professional. The motherboard in and old SiS board.

hye skech,
Welcome to TSG!

IMHO, check the mobo's manual for a jumper to disable the on-board video.

Question: After installing the drivers, does it ask you to reboot? And did you delete the old drivers?

Hi sketch, welcome from me as well........

It may be easier just to go into the control panel, system, device manager and place a check mark in the box marked 'disable in this hardware profile' for that display adapter.

AcaCandy, I couldn't find "disable in this hardware profile", but when I right click on the adapter it has a "disable" option, and when I open the properties for the adapter, under "device usage" there's another disable option. Are these it, or will these do the same as what you suggested? Thanks just the same.
