RC2 and Constant Reloading of Internal Graphics Drivers

    Hi all,

    I seem to be in an endless loop with RC2 and my internal graphics card.
    Unfortunately, my eMachines doesn't have an true "Disable Internal Graphics"
    command in the BIOS.

    I'm currently using a dedicated graphics card for Vista. However, Vista
    keeps finding the internal graphics and keeps loading the drivers which turn
    aero off and reverts me to Vista basic (ughh). Rebooting usually resets aero,
    but Vista quickly finds and loads the Internal Graphics drivers again. Is
    there a command to stop RC2 from scanning for new hardware? Is there a
    command to just select rejection of the graphics card? When I go to the
    Device Manager, the Internal Graphics doesn't even show up so that I can
    disable it!

    Please help :'(

  2. If you can't turn off the internal graphics adapter in the bios, there may
    be a M/B jumper to do the same.

    You did go to the eMachine website and search there for the answer to your
    problem, right?

    Have you tried disabling the internal graphics in Device Manager?

    What is your other Graphics card and what interface from it are you using?
    VGA,VGI etc?
    Are you able in your BIOS to specify that your internal card is not your
    primary card?
