Dell 3100 Install of a PCI Video Card

Just recently installed a 256MB PCI Video card into my Dell 3100.  Install successful, but I need to uninstall my integrated Intel graphics.  Not sure if this is done in BIOS or done in Device Manager ? In device manager, I see two possible options :

(A)  Within Display Adaptors, there is a listing for "Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family"
(b)  Within System Devices, there are 6 Intel listings, such as Intel 82801 PCI Bridge, LPC Interface Controller, PCI Express Root Port, SMBUS Controller, 915G/GV/910GL Processor to I/E Controller.

I just want to make sure I disable to correct Video options so that the only video card being used is the after market PCI Card I just installed.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

the best option would be to go into the bios to the video settings and set the pci video card to the primary video device, according to dells you should have this option.
