Changing default video card

Postby OrangeBicycle » Thu May 08, 2008 10:30 pm


I have two video cards in my system (Both Nvidia, one Geforce 4 MX, one Geforce 5), one in an AGP slot, one in a PCI slot.
Linux Mint autmatically sets my default to the AGP card, but I want it to be the PCI one. I can't figure out how to change it, any help would be appreciated.

Why do you have these two cards?
You set the default in BIOS I think
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
