    there is an option to change the mode, which i set to the lowest - mono. i guess this isn't disabling it, though...that's all i saw. is there another way to do it?

    there is an option to change the vga mode (with the lowest setting being mono), and there is a setting in the "integrated peripherals" category to change between pci and agp. is this what i want? change it to agp? then enable the card in windows and disable the onboard in windows?
