PostSubject: Graphics Card Problem   Sat Jun 22, 2013 9:11 pm

Recently, I bought an AMD Radeon HD 7870 Tahiti le and a new PSU with it. I installed them in my PC but the graphics card is not recognised by the computer...
I've tried installing the drivers for the card but during installation of the 'AMD Display Driver' it crashes my computer. I've tried to disable the onboard graphics via the Device Manager but it still won't switch to the card, it ends up giving my no signal so I have to run it through onboard graphics for now.
There is no option to disable it in the BIOS either, so I'm stuck.

Anyone know how to fix this? These are my specs.

Dell Inspiron 660
Intel i5 3330
XFX AMD Radeon 7870 Tahiti LE
4 GB DDR3 1600MHz
Corsair CX600 80 Plus Bronze

Is your monitor plugged directly into the graphics card and not the onboard?

No, right now I've got a VGA cable going into my onboard (which I'm using) and an HDMI into my graphics card in the hope that there'll be a signal from it.

you have to have the monitor plugged into the card for it to be recognized. You should be able to install the drivers with it plugged in

Yeah I thought something was strange there. I hesitated to ask it because it seems so simple. Yeah you need the monitor plugged in and I would say only to the graphics card, unless you're running dual monitors which I don't think you are.
