Yes, as whs says look in the bios.

Have a look online to find out what button you need to press (for your particular laptop) while booting to enter it and then look for something like "use onboard graphics"

THNX for the help but i cant enter the bios . I remember what keys shows the bios menu (in my case it was F10) but nothing happened when i do that. Just to be sure I tried all the F keys (F1-F12) but still no luck. After so many tries , the screen is still black.
Any other ideas guys ?

Just going back to your original post.. Did you disable the Intel graphics in the bios?

If so then it sounds like you need to find some way to reset the bios, obviously with pc's it's pretty straight forward but I don't really have any knowledge of how to do this on laptops.

What is the make and model of said Laptop?

You could try an external monitor to see if that works. Then you may go back to device manager and re enable the Intel graphics.

I tried this too but nothing shows on the external monitor. Is there a battery inside to reset BIOS, just like in normal PC's or not ?

OK guys. I figured out how to reset thing back. I just took out the batery and put it back in. The screen is ok now and i logged on, went to Device Menager, enabled Intel Graphics and everything is back to normal.
THANKS a lot for the help. I like this forum. I will visit you guys here more often, helping as much as i can. See you.

Glad you figured it out. Normally getting to a laptop CMOS battery is a real hassle. You may also power off, remove the laptop battery and hold your power button down for 30 seconds. This usually will reset your BIOS.
