tarjeta gráfica Intel Q45/Q43 Express Chipset


buenos días:

Tengo integrado en la placa base la tarjea de gráficos Intel Q45/Q43 Express Chipset. Quiero configurar el ordenador para que funcione con dos pantallas y le he pinchado una tarjeta de gráficos NVidia. Cuando lo arranco me detecta esta como principal pero no detecta el administrador de dispositivos de la integrada Intel Q45/Q43 Express Chipset. Si desconecto la Nvidia me la vuelve a detectar. ¿Que puedo hacer para que detecte la tarjeta Intel Q45/Q43 Express Chipset junto con la otra? Ya he probado con el detector de la configuración de pantalla y el administrador de dispositivos y no me da resultado.

Gracias y saludos

Your motherboard bios may allow the onboard graphics, or the nvidia card, but not both.   Check your bios to see if there is a setting to allow both.   With something this old, you may not have that option.


For help with your motherboard bios, contact the system or motherboard manufacturer.

Look for a parameter in the Video section that allows you to specify what happens with the integrated graphics engine. As Al said, however, it may not be supported for the chipset-based integrated graphics engine. If it is supported, the default is typically to disable the integrated graphics engine when the add-on graphics card is detected. There should also be selections that allow you to specify that the integrated graphics engine should always be disabled and/or should always be disabled.

Again, there is a high likelihood that the capability is not supported. I am vaguely remembering (with my nearing-65 brain) something about a copyright issue that affected this feature.
