nvidia is sabbotaging my card's performance- Help!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
ok nvidia isnt really "sabotaging" me par say, but my motherboard has onboard graphics powered by nvidia drivers.
I was getting graphical errors in games and such, so i uninstalled the nvidia drivers, booted into safe mode, did a driver sweep on the nvid drivers, booted back up and the problems ceased to ressume.

However when i rebooted later on, the onboard graphics reinstalled themselves!

How can i fix this, for the longest time i thought it was my card with the problem and i almost RMA'd it

Have you disabled onboard graphics in bios?

So, if you disabled your onboard video in the BIOS, why did you then proceed to install Nvidia drivers for a device you disabled?

1. Clear CMOS/reset the BIOS
2. Then, while booting up and before it gets the chance to install the Nvidia driver, go into BIOS to disable the onboard video

How do i clear the cmos? ive never had to do that before.

also i assume i would have to do an uninstall+ driver sweep before clearing, correct?

Steps:
1.Uninstall Nvidia driver
2.Boot into Safe mode to do Driver Sweep

Clear CMOS
3.Power off the PC
4.Unplug the power cord of the PC (either at the wall socket or at the back of PSU). Wait a minute.
5.Remove the button type battery from your motherboard
6.Wait a few more minutes
7.Reinsert the battery
8.Reconnect the power cord
9.Power up the PC
10.During the booting stage, go into BIOS
11.Disable the onboard video feature
12.Save BIOS and exit
13.Finish the bootup and get into Desktop
(No Nvidia driver should have been installed and so no sweeping is needed)
