Installation
3-4 VGA expansion
The Intel 915GL / 915GV chipset itself has a powerful on-chip VGA engine and
therefore does not support expansion for PCI-E x16 VGA cards. You may connect
the monitor directly to the rear I/O of this mainboard. However, as a backup VGA
solution this mainboard has been cleverly designed with a PCI-E VGA slot running
at PCI-E x1 bandwidth that will allow most VGA cards to operate.
If you need to use a VGA card instead of the on-chip graphics, you need to
remove the Intel VGA driver before you install your VGA card. To do this,
enter the O/S in Safe Mode and remove the Intel GMA900 graphics driver
from the Device Manager. Shutdown the system, plug in the VGA card and
restart the system. The O/S will then detect the VGA card as usual.
The following type of VGA cards have been tested INCOMPATIBLE with this
mainboard:
