How to switch to amd integrated graphics in bios?

Go to solution Solved by Zev_7,

Update: turns out newegg lied and the pc didnt have a 3200g inside of it, it was swapped for a ryzen 3 3100 which doesnt have integrated graphics. 

I'm new to amd processors so im not familiar how to change this particular setting, google isnt helpful and my friend doesnt know how to switch it in bios. Its grayed out in his bios settings but his hdmi port is connected to the gt 710. Both the motherboard (asrock a320m) and cpu (amd ryzen 3200g) support video output of integrated graphics so I'm a bti confused as to why it wouldn't let him change it. Its an ibuypower pc.

You need to plug into the HDMI port on the MoBo, not the GPU.

Does he need the GT710? The iGPU on the 3200G is faster

 

If he doesn't need it, take the GT710 out and plug your HDMI into the back of the motherboard

AMD Ryzen 3 3200G / Sapphire R9 290X / 16gb (2x8) Kingston ValueRam @ 2666Mhz / Gigabyte A320M-S2H / Kingston A400 120GB M.2 SSD / WD Blue 2.5" 1TB HDD / Cooler Master MWE450 / iCute Thing / LG 22MK400H-B 1920x1080 @ 75Hz / Dell P2210 1680 x 1050 @ 60Hz / Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury / E-Blue Memcanical Keyboard / Razer Kraken Xthose lights off!

yeah thats what i was trying to tell him, he said he'd remove the gpu later. Though not sure if it'll just work if he plugs it into the hdmi port on the motherboard, theoretically it should, but it should also let him switch it even though he has it plugged into the gpu, no?

It should work (make sure he uninstalls the old drivers and installs the new drivers) but I'm not so sure about the switch in the BIOS. 

 

 

Does this work for you?

Worst case scenario you can just clear CMOS, that will restore every BiOS setting to factory settings, including turning the on-board graphics on. If you have changed any settings in the BiOS (i.e., Enable X.M.P), you will have to re-enable that setting, but then you should be fine. 

 

Do remember to run DDU to get rid of the Nvidia drivers, they can cause issues with games.

I'll suggest both of these options to him and see what the outcome is. Though that'll be in a day or two since testing, updating everything, etc takes time. Ill leave the thread open for now.

No, iirc you need to remove the gpu.

hahaha, well, wow that sucks...!  are they sending him a equivalent gpu now or how does this work?  is switching out parts and then selling them without telling the customer a general sales tactic at newegg or..? 

 

Also ibuypower, huh, oh well!

it was an open box pc so i think some other user might have done it though idk, at least the 3100 is faster than the 3200g, the gt 710 is a pretty shite gpu though but i mean nothing is really available atm. 
Think i should tell him to return it and get a better prebuilt? He might not like that idea though since he wanted the pc now.

I mean that's not something I can really decide, but I think I would just try getting a better gpu like a 1050ti or maybe 1060 then it would be actually be usable.

yeah sure, but a *cheap* alternative would be something like a 1050ti / 1060 ... that would run most games acceptably in comparison to what they have now. 

 

If money is of no concern there are better options of course.

yeah I know that, I'm just saying that OP can eventually upgrade to something in same weight class in the future without seeing too much CPU bottleneck
