I recently bought an ATI Radeon 7500LE 64mb PCI video card. I am having trouble disabling the onboard video card, and I can't find anywhere to do it in the BIOS. I am running windows 2k professional on a 1 ghz Intel Celeron. Any help whatsoever is appretiated.

if your SiS video uses shared memory remove the DIMM from memory bank 1 and put it in bank 2. With no memory in bank1 there is no shared memory and thus no onboard video. Windows will probably still detect it as unknown video device but you can disable it in device manager.
