I can not disable my onboard graphics to install a radeon hd 7750. my onboard graphics is a nvidia geforce 6150SE. On my bios it has only one thing that i could change and i guess use my video card BUT its greyed out and not selectable.

More about : disable onboard graphics

Top tip.. DONT tell us what motherboard you have.. that would make it too easy for us to help... idiot!!

At a guess - perhaps it will not make that option available until it detects a graphics card in the slot...
Or (more likely).. you don't know what you are doing and are looking at the wrong option.

Please tell us your motherboard model, there's always an option in the bios to select which device to set as your primary graphics device.

EDIT: Damn you posted, and Google is a dog.

Right, enter bios -> advanced chipset features -> Primary Video (this should be set to auto, leave it alone and install your card, once installed the onboard should be disabled and it will default to your new card as the primary graphics card)

quick look at manual -
in "advance chipset" options there seems to be a "Primary Video" option - you checked that?
and I guess you looking at the "Integrated peripherals" section - that has a "onboard graphics controller" option - that is grey.
Also - check with Acer to see if there is a BIOS update.. make sure you have latest

The recommended minimum power supply requirements for a HD 7750 is 400 watts. It may be that you don't have enough power to run the card so it defaults to the integrated video.

Unless the motherboard is configured otherwise, the onboard graphics card will automatically disable when an external graphics card is installed.

Please stop trying to disable the onboard card and install your new card.

There are no options like that in there. there are only AMD cool and quite, AMD-V Memory hole Size, and UMA frame buffer size.

So have you checked you have the latest BIOS? if that option missing - may be I was looking at old documentation.. or you got old BIOS and this feature added in newer..
I don't know.. (and right now, I don't care.. you need to show some initiative and work it through).

Cheers

Then we're retarded as well. Calvin7 mentioned power supply earlier in the thread and we just carried on without considering it.

Must confess - I am slightly surprised it not working at all.. esp if you just 20 watts short.
I would expect it to fire up.. but give you problems as soon as you put it under load, when it starts to pull more power.

Do post back and let us know how it turns out.
