Hi,

I have hdmi port on onboard graphics card, and I want to use it to connect to my TV. Yet onboard card is disabled apparently since I have external graphics card. I know I can probably use bios but I don't want to disable external one because I use it too (or at least don't want to access bios every time to enable/disable cards).

So any easier solutions? E.g. can I enable them both and then maybe use some software to quickly select the one I want to use at the moment?

I have AMD vision control engine, and cards:

ATI Radeon HD 3200
ATI Radeon HD 3400


Thanks,
Karl

generally motherboards disable integrated graphics when a card is installed

both of the cards mentioned are now in legacy support

Actually most motherboards have a VGA priority setting. It used to be PCI/AGP or AGP/PCI back in the days, later it became Onboard/PCIe or PCIe/onboard. Make sure the onboard has the priority and it should work (in theory).
