If its being read in the OS, then it essentially is being read by the BIOS as well.

Check the Motherboard for a possible JUMPER to disable the onboard GPU if there are no settings in the BIOS....Generally there is a VGA First Boot priority option.

My Opinion is no more important or right than yours. But if your using the LATEST drivers, go back to the prior set.

Piss Poor tech support blame all issues on drivers and assumes that your an idiot. Find a set that you know worked and see if the problem exists still.

""Don't f with it if it ain't broken!""

Constantly updating drivers is a good way to F'up the whole system.
