Re: [vox-tech] HELP!! (happy now Peter? :P)

well i had already been using a seperate video card besides my on-board one
without any problems.  Also, the manual for my  computer said that the
on-board is automatically disabled if it detects another video  card.  Well
guess there's nothing I can do, seems like my  motherboard is dead (but i
still hear all the sounds my bios makes *shrugs) well thanks for all your
help anyways everybody.
