How to permanently disable graphics card

  1. My laptop supports two graphics card AMD Radeon(TM) HD 6470M and Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000 and after a while the AMD got corrupted(I already updated it but I think it's hardware problem) and causes blue screen so I disabled it in safe mode(because it uses the intel one).

    I tried a clean install of Windows 7 and during installation AMD causes blue screen because it gets enabled.

    And now I want to try a clean install of the Windows 10. Question is, is there anyway I could disable the graphics card permanently?

    I use a 64-bit Sony Vaio Laptop VPCSB26FG with a Windows 7 Home Premium OS. Thanks a lot! :)

    The simple solution is to remove the failing card :grin:

    You can typically disable the discrete GPU in BIOS or at least designate which one you want your machine to use by default.
