Graphics card not showing on new board


[link to this post]
 
Today I got my new motherboard and swapped everything over. All seemed fine but i cant get a display from my PCI-e card. I have tried all the options in bios. But no good. The card is ATI 4550 HD.

The fan on the graphics card is spinning and windows update is saying my card needs a update but it keeps failing saying there is no device.

Specs are

Processor: AMD Athlon II X4 630
Ram: 4GB PC-5300
PSU: 580W
OS: Win 7 64bit

Please help as I need to use the DVI output on my card

Regards

Have you looked in the device manager and is the card displayed on there?

if you can see windows then i would say the card is displaying something, do the disk that comes with the card have Windows 7 64 bit drivers on, I think this is a pretty old card, so maybe not.

you might have to got to the ATI/AMD site to download the drivers.

Vista 64bit drivers will also work.

F5 BIOS 2010/07/02 1 Improve NVIDIA 4series VGA compatibility
Might also help with ATI compatibility. Worth a shot if its not already the latest BIOS

Right found my other card. Set bios to try PCI-e card first. Plugged both VGA and DVI cables in. The DVI connection worked. Post screen came up and the after windows had started the VGA connection worked but all I got was the wallpaper. All the icons appeared on the DVI screen

I swapped the VGA connection to default display and turned off the expand monitors so the DVI connection was not in use. Restarted the computer and the VGA connection once again never came on. But the DVI connection did. When it got to windows the VGA screen came on and the DVI went off.

Confused yet?

I am back on the onboard VGA now as the PCI-e card was throwing up errors and not much worked on the display side.

Any ideas?

Hello,

I'm struggling to understand what you've tried. It sounds like your trying to use 2 monitors at the same time. and both the onboard graphics and a pci express card at the same time. I'm sorry if im covering ground you've done already.

1. go into the bios ADVANCED MENU and on INIT DISPLAY FIRST and select PEG (PEG = PCI EXPRESS GRAPHICS).
2. at the bottom of the list on the ADVANCED MENU, turn ONBOARD GPU to OFF.
3. save and turn off your computer, install your pci express graphics card and turn on. Your pc should now only be using the pci express card.
