Internal CPU Graphics - A Question

JohnAb

I've been thinking ahead about internal CPU graphics (for non 'F' versions)

By default, internal graphics are disabled in the BIOS. No problem so far, but what happens if the main GPU fails completely? How would you then be able to enable internal graphics without a video output?

This hasn't happened to me, I'm just wondering. So what I've done is to enable internal graphics and I've left the video output on auto. I'm hoping that in the unlikely event of a main GPU failure I won't get stuck. Am I missing something here, or would it be better to have internal graphics enabled in the BIOS by default?

Thanks for any thoughts on this (unlikely) scenario.

Whenever the bios does not detect a GPU installed, the iGPU is enabled automatically.

OK, thanks for the answer. That's good to know 🙂 I'll turn the iGPU back off then...
