How To Disable Onboard Graphics For GeForce 8500GT

Link to this post 31 Mar 10

I am running an Acer desktop with Ubuntu 10.04. I tried to install a PNY GeForce 8500GT HDMI Graphics card and neither HDMI or standard monitor works. There is power to the fan on the card. I remove the card,plug the monitor back in to mobo and works fine. Is there a motherboard jumper to disable on onboard graphics or a command in terminal I can use? First log is- dmesg and second is- lspci Thanks For Taking The Time, SAM [ 0.008345] CPU: L1 I cache: 32K, L1 D cache: 32K

You need to boot into the machine's BIOS and either disable the on-board video or give precidence to the external video adapter. Alternatively, boot with your monitor attached to the on-board adapter, install your nVidia drivers, and configure your X11 system to use the nVidia card for output instead of the on-board video. In truth, you can use both if you want, even at the same time.

There is not any selections in the Bios- Advanced> Southbridge Configuration> Primary Graphics Adapter to set to PCIE>.PCI>IGP , nor to Disable IGP (Integrated / On Board Graphics) I also tried the other way you suggested, boot with card, load drivers on boot. Nothing but card fan running on high speed. The driver disk that came with the card are windows drivers, Can I install them with ndiswrapper? I used that utility/tool to get my wife's Dell Netbook WIFI going after I installed Ubuntu Remix. Or do you know how to get the .ini file from an .exe driver. Thanks For Taking The Time, Sam

Which drivers did you install? The ones in the Synaptic package manager, or did you download the proprietary drivers directly from nVidia and install that? I recommend doing the latter.

Graphics drivers for your card are freely available from the Ubuntu repos, one does not use ndiswrapper to install them. I have an Asus motherboard that also doesn't have bios settings for disabling the on-board graphics card, it does the reconfiguration automatically.
Did you try to use the external graphics card in another computer? That's one thing I would try, because from the sound of it, you might have a hardware problem. Either with the external card, or with the motherboard's recognition of the external card. When the external card is installed, and the monitor is plugged in to the on-board port, does your monitor function? It should, unless the external card is preventing it from working, and if that's the case, it would point to a problem with the external card. Have you tried another external card in the same slot? If a second card does not work, it may point to a problem with the motherboard.
All Linux distros come with default graphics drivers, if your not getting video from those, adding drivers to the mix won't help. You should check out the hardware first before adding problems to your OS install.

Drivers. Drivers. Drivers. Install the Nvidia drivers for your card that are available in the Ubuntu repos. You should be fine after that. I run a similar card on my system, by the way. :)
