Before I added the 8400GS PCI card I unistalled the onboard Intel graphics driver and reset BIOS to PCI. I installed the 8400GS and the latest Nvidia drivers. Now each time I boot in XP Pro it tries to install the onboard Intel drivers. So I uninstall and disable again in Device Manager. The next time I boot it starts all over again. Is this normal?
Also I am running Win 7 RC on a second drive. I have the same problem in Win 7, only it will actually reboot the computer when it is idle, because of the missing drivers for onboard graphics controller. ??
As a side note: I tried a Nvidia 6200 AGP graphics card and did not experience any problems.
