    me and my friend are working on getting a new graphics card up and
    running on our comp. okay so we're having issues with our nvidia
    geforce 5200 FX card. when we boot the computer, we get a few varying
    issues. first, blank screen, no responses. second, we get to the win
    XP pro login, but beyond that, nothing. third, we get a blank screen
    with a stripe of a few possible colors accross the top. we think it
    might be an issue with XP, but reading a few posts of people with
    problems similar to ours we see that they disabled the onboard
    graphics accelerator because the two were conflicting. sadly, the
    manual for our motherboard (Matsonic MS8308EP) doesnt say any jumper
    configurations or anything for disabling the onboard graphics
    acceleration. if ANYBODY could enlighten us to a solution for EITHER
    of our questions, we'd be eternally grateful and all that stuff.

    I don't think there is a disable jumper for the video card instead
    you have to turn it off in the bios. After looking at the manual I
    would check out the the "Features Setup" option in your bios.

    good luck
