Not sure what you mean but im thinking you mean do you have to disable onboard?
Boot up the computer, go into BIOS, i beleive you have to go to standard CMOS group, go to primary display, you should see onboard/AGP, change value to PCI. Save to CMOS, boot up, you shouldn't get post, this is normal. Turn off the computer again, open the case, put in the PCI card, boot up again it should work fine. If all works fine, close the case.
EDIT: In english.. Turn on the computer, press the button that goes to bios, press the down arrow until you get to the section that says cmos. Then press enter, press down arrow until you get to primary display, press enter, then down to highlight PCI. Press enter, then press down arrow until you get to the section that says save to cmos and exit, press enter, it should say save? press Y and press enter. Now the screen goes black, the monitor goes into sleep. Turn off the computer, put in the new graphics card, and turn on the computer. Pat your self on the back, and give me some rep if it works.
