Can't disable onboard to install PCI-e

Hewlett-packard Asus p5lp-le motherboard
December 20, 2010 at 10:36:24
Specs: Windows Vista
I have done everything I can to get a Visiontek Radeon HD5550 installed and running on My HP Pavilion a6013w desktop computer. I have disabled the onboard, I have uninstalled the onboard. I have gone to the BIOS and tried to find the option to change from onboard to PCIe but the option simply is not there. I have even taken the PC back to original factory settings. What else can I try that I haven't already? Here are the specs from my PC from the AMD report wizard.

U provided alot of useless info. When v-card is installed automatically onboard video disappear. All u need to change in bios is initial display to pci-e, save and exit then install a v-card. Iam sure u can run hd 5550 with crappy oem psu. FYI hd 5550 isn't a gaming card.

Yes, a LOT of useless info in your post. A video card should display the HP splash screen, regardless of drivers or whether the onboard is disabled or not. If you're not seeing the HP screen with the new card in place, the card is either defective or it's improperly installed.

The HD 5550 isn't a great gaming card but I wouldn't classify it as a non-gaming card. If you look at the following table, it's close to the HD 4650 in gaming performance.

In most cases you change to vga display before you power down computer. Then full off with power cord out, you install the new card.Then connect monitor to new card. Then usually change boot options to second display.(may have to do before switch to new card) Then you usually let power up and don't let the card auto install. Then install from software that came or downloaded.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

My bet is that you can't get your gpu working because it is not compatible with your hp p5lp-le mobo. I'm having the same problem with a HD 5450. Searching the web has turned up a few posts that seem to confirm that despite claims of the pci-e 2.0 being backward compatible, this simply is not the case withour particular mother board.

Check your PSU. According to AMD you need a 400W PSU and (as far as I can tell) the one in your PC is only 300W - and who knows what quality it is.
