    My computer is currently running on some nVidia video card but my monitor will sometimes flash and display garbled stuff, i've tried updating the drivers and stuff but it doesn't help. I'd like to try using the built-in graphics that I have but how do I do that?

    TIA

    Just plug the monitor into the on-board one and it should work when you turn it back on.

    It needs to be enabled in the BIOS as well.

    If you're using an AGP add on card, the integrated AGP graphics disabled itself when you installed it since you can only have one AGP device at a time. Pull the AGP card and the integrated video should kick back in.
