Just try using cpu-z to find what kind of mobo you got. Then search the mobo on google, and you should be able to find out what kind of intergrated video it has.

Default Re: onboard video

isn't the chipset the onboard video card? because on mu old eMachines i remeber seeing the Intel i845Gl or something of the same sort.

but to answer your question, yeah thats the name of the mobo.

Yeah, that would be it. It shows your chipset in there, and at the top it says for graphics cards, so that's it.

If you don't want the onboard video to show up, you should be able to turn it off in the BIOS so it won't try to hunt for it.

Press Del at bootup (it'll say so otherwise), and somewhere in one of the menus will be an option to disable onboard video.

Save and Exit, and that should go!

The Onboard Video will be on the chipset.
