Intel® 82810 Graphics and Memory Controller Hub (GMCH)
Can the Intel® 810/810E/810E2 Chipset Graphics be disabled?

Some motherboards based on the Intel® 810 chipset have a way to disable the onboard graphics in the system BIOS; however, many do not.

Most motherboards have a BIOS setting to change the primary graphics adapter to the PCI video card, which should allow PCI video cards to work properly. This will not disable the integrated graphics adapter; instead, it will set it to work as the secondary adapter for multi-monitor support. If you do not wish to use multi-monitor, the graphics driver for the Intel 810 chipset can be disabled (in software) in Device Manager. You should be able to disable the integrated graphics in Device Manager by doing the following:

  1. Right-click on the icon for the Intel® 810 chipset graphics adapter, and then click Properties.
  2. Uncheck the item that says Exists in all hardware profiles.
  3. Reboot.
  4. Go back into Device Manager, and then back into the Properties for the Intel 810 chipset display adapter.
  5. Click the checkbox for the item that says Disabled in this hardware profile.
If the above steps do not work, try changing the graphics driver for the Intel 810 chipset to the Standard VGA driver. If the primary display adapter is set to PCI in the system BIOS, the integrated graphics should automatically show up as disabled in Device Manager after rebooting.
