Switching Graphics from Dedicated to On-board on Desktop PC


In the zone

I have been facing problem in 1 particular game, Rise of Nations, where I am unable to play it on windows 7 x64 Home Premium.

Error: This game cannot run on 256 colors. Please change to 16-bit or 32-bit color, etc bullshit.....

Now, who will use their computers in 256 colors.. seriously... i have been trying to troubleshoot this issue for last 3 days....

Now I am thinking of removing the VGA plug from nvidia gfx and insert it on board graphics port, with the hope that it runs (haven't tried it though).

Anyways, if this works, i want to know if there is any hardware available to switch to onboard gfx without removing the cable from GPU and inserting it in motherboard slot.


PS: If anyone knows how to resolve this Rise of Nations issue for me, they are in for a treat :)
