Adding non-integrated video card

I am trying to add a matrox millenium PCI video adapter to this server. The integrated card does not support True Color which we need for an app. I've added the card and attempted to install the drivers, but the drivers will not load and I am stuck in VGA. Do I need to do anything to disable the integrated video to get this to work?

Re: Adding non-integrated video card

You have to turn off the embedded controller with a switch setting. This is noted in the manual and on the label inside the system's cover (almost all of our systems have a lable like that).

SW1 - switch 1 to "ON" disables the embedded video controller.
