    If the installation of an actual vid card didn't disable the onboard video, you can do that yourself in the BIOS (depending on your system) or in Windows itself (in Device Manager).

    The original Intel Extreme Graphics was the onboard video for the i845G series chipsets. The Intel Extreme Graphics 2 was the onboard video for the i865G series chipsets. Both of those are old Socket 478 chipsets for the P4 and are likely to be a bit finicky with disabling the onboard video, especially if you have an OEM system. Disabling it through the BIOS is preferred to free up resources, but disabling it through Windows is acceptable as well.
