    What's the difference between "disabled display adapter" and "standard vga
    graphics adapter"?

    Standard vga adapter seems to use vga drivers. What driver or no drier is
    used for disabled display adapters? If no driver is used for disabled display
    adapters, then how does the OS operate it?
    Thanks a lot!

    What leads you to think that a "disabled display adapter" is being operated
    at all? The very definition of "disabled" is that the system won't load a
    driver for it, and hence it will not be used.

    I think a "disabled display adapter" is being operated because a "disabled
    display adapter" still can dispaly pictures and i still can see vga.sys is in
    the module list when using windbg lm command. And computer requires rebooting
    when installing drivers from "vga adapter" mode or when adapter is enalbed
    from rebooted "disabled adapter" mode. So i think it would be the same for
    "disabled display adapter" and VGA adapter.
