I am not a real tech-savvy guy, but I will try to explain this as best as possible.
My regular graphics card (ATI Radeon HD 5470) seems to be disabled by the on-board graphics chip-set (NVIDIA GeForce 7025 / NVIDIA nForce 630a). When I turn on my computer, the ATI card will work seldom. Instead the on-board card switches on. To then correct this I would have to crash windows, then turn it on again, and it would work. I have tried numerous things, even getting a new ATI card to see i that was the problem, and practically everything rational short of ripping the on-board card off. Today, no matter what I did, I could not disable the on-board card.
So, 2 questions:
1. Has anyone ever heard of something like this happening before?
2. How can I fix it?
Any help would be appreciated.
