Question

Question: I am replacing an onbaord video controller, (Intel 8254GVCH)
(which
eats shared memeory like candy) with a PCI NVida card on the wifes computer.
Don't need any help with the mechanics of this, I've already changed the BIOS
settings and installed the card. Works fine, BUT that damn onboard controller
still seems to be hogging the RAM, even thogh I've disabled it. What I need
to know is; If I delet the Intel graphics contoller through Device manager,
is this going to cause any problems with the boot process? Will I have to
re-flash the BIOS? Which, BTW, is surface mounted and I suspect very touchy.
Any ideas? Thanks for the help..

Have you tried disabling the onboard card in BIOS? You mentioned that
you've changed settings, but if you haven't diabled it, and only set it to
AGP first, then the onboard card will still be active.
