Help With Radeon HD 6670 Graphics Card

Hello. First off thank you for any and all help.

I am trying to install the Gigabyte Radeon HD 6670 graphics card on my computer. I've tried several times to install it, yet every time it just gives me a black/blank screen when it is plugged into the graphics card. I seem to be having troubles with the bios. As in how do I disable the onboard video card. I have a Foxconn A75A motherboard with aptio setup utility.

  1. You don't need to disable the built in graphics, it will auto switch off when it recognizes the new one. What are your system specs? Is your PSU strong enough to run the new graphics card?

    My system specs are as follows:
    Os: windows 7 64-bit
    Processor: AMD A8-3850 APU with Radeon dual graphics 2.9GHz
    Memory: 8 Gb
    PSU: 600 w
    I believe 400 w is the minimum for the video card.

    yeah your PSU should have enough power. Double check to make sure it is seated properly, are you able to see the bios with the graphics card in? It's possible that you have a bad card.
  4. See if the BIOS supports setting the primary graphics to PCI-E.

    That's part of my problem. My BIOS seems so diffrent from any of the tutorials I've looked at. I can't seem to find where to change that at.

    I just read a review on the motherboard you have and someone stated they had issues with a graphics card as well. They said after flashing the bios everything worked, you might want to try the same thing.

    Nope. I plug into the video card and I get nothing. Just a black screen...

    I'll give it a try. Is the Foxconn website the best place to get that?

    Yeah, some manufacturers have bios flash software on the CD that comes with the motherboard. They should have all the stuff that came on the CD online also in case you can't find it. Let us know if it works for you.
