I have an old monitor so it don't have a HDMI port, and my dedicated
gpu only have HDMI. So I used a HDMI to vga converter and now it's broken and I can't use my gpu, is there any way to change to the integrated graphics without seeing anything?
 
Normally, a bios will disable the integrated graphics adapter if it detects a discrete graphics card is installed.
You can remove the graphics card and attach the monitor to the motherboard as a temporary measure until you can buy a new HDMI to vga converter.

And I don't need to uninstall the drivers?
 
No, any graphics adapter will have a low res mode that works without any drivers at all.
Otherwise, how could you ever install a driver.
If you have never installed the integrated adapter driver, you may not see the full resolution untill you do.
