goodday people. wondering if anyone knows how to tell a gigabyte GA-7ZMMH mboard how to stop using it's onboard video and use a S3 titan 5000 that is plugged into it's AGP slot? bit embarassing really cause i can't find any settings in the amibios to disable the video. it's got an AGP slot so it's got to be usable right?!

It will be in your BIOS, have a another look.

Bob, Yup you're right should be able to use the AGP video slot.

Have you tried...

The Gigabyte GA-7ZMMH mobo uses an AMIBios and I think the on-board vga (is an S3 savage model?) anyways, enter the BIOS and the 5th submenu on the left side of the main menu should be called PNP/PCI Configuration.

In that submenu there should be an option like VGA Boot From (the default is PCI). Change this value to AGP.

Then back on out and SAVE your settings....

Hey If I'm wrong don't shoot me!!

Cheers, Babe

And if that doesn't work, look hard at all the jumpers on the motherboard. They might have used the 'expensive' hardware way of selecting the video. (Expensive? Yes. Two pins and a jumper and a few inches of track cost at least 2c. Whicj IS expensive in mass production).

You are quite right.

VGA Boot from defaults to PCI
Change that to AGP and it's go.

I downloaded the Manual.
