My system consists of: Windows 7 home premium (64-bit), Motherboard Asus P5B, Processor intel core (TM)2 CPU 6300@1.86GHz, Ram 3 gb, HDD WD 500Gb, PSU 300Watts.
I recently installed Sapphire Radeon R7 250 and when I entered bios it freezes. The clock stops and the keyboard is not functioning. I reinstalled the old video card Radeon X700Pro and I can get into bios to set whichever setting I want to set. But because I want to play FIFA14 soccer game I reinstall Radeon R7 250! Well is there a way to use only Radeon R7 250?
I send you my regards waiting for your help.

I don't think your PSU can handle the system especially if is a no name PSU.

The case of the board freezing when trying to enter the bios can sometimes be related to power.

The reason why the new card will not work will be due to the amount of power it requires.
And why the system freezes with it connected.
And why the system does not with the x700pro card.

You may have to provide the system with a higher rated PSU.

Not necessary higher but a proper PSU like Seasonic, XFX, Superflower, etc.

:)  Well, hello again. I am back to give you the solution to my problem. When I reinstalled the old graphic card, everything went back to normal! I reported the symptom to the shop I have had purchased the graphic card and they suggested I should "flash my bios". It took me a while to find the right way to do it, but when I updated my bios via a usb flash drive and then put the new graphic card everything went OK. I write these lines to share my "solution" with the community. I want to thank you for your answers and your perseverance in keep saying that one should examine his hardware piece by piece.
