Can video output be disabled?

Specs: Windows XP, 1.0Gb
I have a computer where the video output does not work as verified by a diagnostic program from the vendor. The video component is not on a separate card but wired to the motherboard. Is it possible to disable this component and then install a video card into one of the expension slots?

Thank you.

Depending on the motherboard, the onboard might become automatically disabled as soon as a card is detected, or you might have to enter the BIOS, disable the onboard, set the "shared memory" to none, & change the "Initial Display 1st" to the card. Different BIOS types do it differently. We have no idea what you have. Regardless, the card should work immediately at bootup & allow you to enter the BIOS to do whatever you need to do.
