i upgraded my ram and i already have agp video card on it, but i can't get my computer to start. What's the problem? i think the beeping sound when i start my computer have sth to do with the video card. How do i fix this problem? do i have to do sth with the switch and disable the onboard video? where it is located?
I have the same problem. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any option in the HP BIOS to disable the onboard video card. Apparently, OEM's don't like users to modify anything, as they'd have to deal with the resulting support issues. Anyway, I have read that if you delete the video card in Windows' Device Manager, it's the same thing. I'm not sure if it works though. If someone knows how to install a new AGP card properly, please let us know.
You must disable the video card via a jumper on the motherboard. It is located right above the secondary IDE channel and next to the ATI video chip. You have to take all of the cards out of the machine and take off the backplane to get to this section of the motherboard. The jumper will have a short diagram next to it displaying the pin orientation to disable the onboard video.
