    What did you change the options to in your BIOS when you disabled the on-board graphics? Did you change it to "Auto" or "Disabled"?

    Does Windows still recognise the on-board as before?

    How did you disable the on-board graphics? You shoud try setting the "AGP display first" (or something similar) option in the BIOS to "Auto", that should do the trick in theory. What does it say in the BIOS? Let us know before you change anything.

    owning a PB just says it all and actually using the word aint online is just wrong...

    You need to do one of two things go into your BIOS and disable onboard video, and/or set a jumper on the mobo to disable the onboard video. You cant do it from windows.
