How to Enable Intel 4000 Integrated Graphics (Dell Optiplex 9010)

This question is answered

Hi

I have a Dell Optiplex Desktop and I want to enable the Integrated Intel 4000 Graphics (i7 chip).  I also have a Radeon 7450 video card but want to be able to drive multple monitors via the 2 different video cards.

I can see only the Radeon in the Device Manager under video apapters. 

I've also looked in the BIOS and have enabled 'Multple Monitors' or something similar that it's called but that didn't seem to enable it.

Anyone know how to do this?

Thanks.

  • I was able to figure it out.  If I plug a cable into the integrated graphic port on the computer, and then restart the computer, that will be enough to trigger the vide card to be picked up by the OS.  I'm not sure if the 'multiple monitor' setting in the BIOS also needed to be enabled, but that solved the issue for me.  

    Once I booted in, I needed to install the drivers for the Intel integrated graphics and then it worked.

  • Thanks for sharing the solution to your problem. Been working on my GPU as well and will try this one.
