Video Card debacle: Need help

I am trying to install a new graphics card (GeoForce 7600) and cannot seem to get it to work. Mobo (L7VMM2) has a onboard graphics card that I have been unable to uninstall.

Tried in BIOS and in hardware manager, no dice. Plug and play with the new card does not work either.

Did some research and found answers like "set shared memory to 0 in BIOS". Have not been able to find only shared memory section in BIOS only goes to 4. Downloaded manual but could find nothing referring to uninstalling or and leads I need to adjust on the motherboard.

Any help appreciated.

This mobo only has AGP 4x. Your 7600 is definitely over-qualified. But anyway, you should see VIDEO on the first screen of your BIOS. Can you disable it or set it to something else?

As far as shared memory, on page 37 of your manual, it has:

VGA Share Memory Size (32M)

These items allows you to select the shared memory size for VGA usage.

So maybe this is where you select "0" or "none" for shared memory.

Do you have a PCI/AGP choice in your BIOS? If so, try setting it to AGP.

A simple Google search turns up this:

} to disable the on-board video on the ECS L7Vmm3 is actually very easy
} when the computer starts up hit delete to enter bios
} in one of the headings is a shared memory manager, set the sharded
} memory to 0, and it will shut off the on-board video
} then insert your agp video card and it will work perfectly
} the L7VMM3 is actually a very good board when you insert the good
} video card in it.
This may be of interest too:

I wonder if there is a difference between the mm2 and mm3 version.
