Option 1 from your list should work with the graphics driver I linked to.

You should also check any other drivers available on the manufacturer's site for your motherboard components, ( sound, Network, chipset), as a well working motherboard will work more efficiently

Here is the result:
I unplugged the VGA connection from the graphics card.
Then I plugged the wire into the other VGA that comes from the other one.(Let us just call it THO)
After that I turned on the computer to see if it was working.
But it the monitor sent a floating box saying "No video display".
So basically if I remove the graphics card and connect the wire to THO.
I can't use the computer.




So are there any other methods that I can use rather than this?

You need to remove the graphics card from the system or disable it in the BIOS and set the on board graphics as default. I would also swap out the Cable as this may be faulty, try and borrow one rather than purchase

I also found another method.
It sorta' works.
I found out that the driver for my AMD A6-5400K APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics was from 2006.
I tried updating the driver manually and it succeeded.
But after I restarted the computer and went up to the loading windows screen.
It suddenly says no video input.

I would like to try the methods that are the ones in the quoted message.
Please tell me how to disable the graphics card in the Bios and set the on board graphics as default.
I would really like to play the games I've installed.

Since we don't have the same motherboard model as yours we'll need you to read the instruction manual for your motherboard.
