Hi to all. I have a problem: I installed a video card (ATI Radeon HD-4650) but I would to use also the integrated video card and switch to the dedicated card only for gaming. In the BIOS setup manual it is written that the option to choose the primary video card should activate, but in my BIOS it does not appear! The BIOS is updated to the latest version available (2.03). With the dedicated card installed, the PC force me to use only that one, in fact, in the list of peripherals of the Windows Control Panel, the integrated card does not appear! Is this normal ? Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.

In PCs that have two video chipsets, an onboard one an an extra one, the graphics switch automatically -- but that is because special video drivers come with those PCs that make that possible.
With your manually adding a card, that can not be done. You have to select the video chipset manually through the BIOS options when you want to change from the built-in chip to the add-on card.

On the 6000 Pro model series, when you install a PCIe x16 video card, the onboard video is automatically disabled, and there is no way to enable it.
Refer to the F10 setup guide, page 12.
Inserting a PCI Express x16 video card automatically disables Integrated Video. When a PCI Express x16 video card is installed, Integrated Video cannot be enabled
