Dell Dimension M200a already has video "board" built into motherboard.  Just got a Stealth 3D2000 video card but can't seem to disable onboard video so I can use the Stealth.  How can this be done?  (Dell tech support can't even answer this one -- is it that hard?)

I have a DELL OPTIPLEX GXMT5200 with onboard video, and all I did to install a new card was plug it in. It "auto disabled" the other card.

Check out Jumper number J6M1, Could that be it?  It is between the CPU and the power connector.

Will the computer AUTO Disable the on-board video if you try installing the other card, or have you tried that?

I installed the new card without doing any jumper settings, and found that the Device Manager listed it as a conflict, so apparently the on-board video does not auto-disable.

You need to remove drivers for old video card and then install drivers for new one.

Please elaborate on how to do this.  I tried doing this by highlighting the on-board video driver from Device Manager and then clicking REMOVE, but then when the system is rebooted, it says it sees new hardware and just re-installs the onboard video stuff!

I think this will reject the current answer (?) so that "AHA!" can post a solution?

Are yo using new video card with monitor? It look like the old video is still working which is nice for windows 98. Did you look into your  bios setings. Also you can try to install your video card by using add new hardware and under video choose have disk

You need to have a video terminator, much like SCSI.
This will plug into your video card and loopback the video signal in order for it to disable video output from that port.  Most new video cards have that autoterm built in.  This one does not.

I learned about this when trying to install a MPEG Video upgrade a few years back.  A terminator came with the kit.

You will need to get ahold of one of these in order for it to work.
