    Full system specs? have you tried switching out your gpu to your old one? could be a dead gpu.
  2. can you return that gepu and get a 6770 or above for gaming from experience i got a 5450 and returned it for a 6850 it was not good for gaming but if you are not gaming i think gpu is faulty and get a replacemen t
  3. if psu is a lower brand could be that may have to replace to more power or something

    hmm. Kind of odd specs, try taking out your 6450 and putting in your old gpu to see if that works. Also, thats not really much of an upgrade from your 210. if that doesn't work, check the vga/dvi cables.
