AMD R9 270X Graphics Card Not Working

Hi guys,

I am building a computer and it runs, but I am running into a problem with the graphics card. My computer specs are the following:

Intel core i3 4130
Asus B85M-E/CSM Motherboard
8 gb Ram
500 watt power supply
500gb harddrive
Amd R9 270X Graphics card
Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit

The computer runs, but something isn't going right with the graphics card. When I start up the computer, I see it running, but when I tried to install the driver it didn't recognize that I had the card. When I tried using the auto detect graphics card it said "Can't find graphics card or OS"

I'm pretty sure my motherboard is compatible with the card so I don't know what the problem is. Do I need to change some kind of setting?

Thanks

    I assume you have the latest drivers?
    After running the driver download and it self extracts to C:\ATI, you could go to device manager->Display Adapters-> and right click the R9 adapter go to properties and update the driver by pointing to C:\ATI as this has fixed a few problems similar in the past.
  2. Try re-inserting the graphics card in the pci slot. Also, make sure that the power connectors are firmly attached.
  3. I tried reinserting the graphics card with no luck.

    Darren the problem is that the graphics driver won't install? And it seems your solution is after it installs

    "After running the driver download and it self extracts to C:\ATI, you could go to device manager->Display Adapters-> and right click the R9 adapter go to properties and update the driver by pointing to C:\ATI as this has fixed a few problems similar in the past."

    is a solution to update the driver manually yourself in device manager to the extracted files on C:\ATI which will exist the moment you run the drivers (as it self extracts, so it's there unless you deleted it or never ran a driver installation). Within the C:\ATI folder you will find a folder for the actual driver .ini/.inf and can update a video card driver through device manager.
  5. Thanks I will try this when I get the chance
