Hey all, I recently purchased a new graphics card, and after being reassured convincingly on several forums that the card will run on my computer, I purchased a HIS Radeon 7850 HD.
I followed every guide, uninstalled and disabled my old drivers from my old card (NVIDIA 8800GT) and even after this failed the first time, put my old card in and enabed safe boot, and re-disabled/uninstalled the drivers again.
I'm extremely confused as why this is happening, as I have followed everything by the book, and double/triple checked that the card was compatible on my system before purchasing. Can anyone help me out?
Ok I believe it's a compatibility issue, assuming you're connecting the right cables and everything in place I believe it's because of your PCIE slots, it's rated as PCIE 1.0 according to your MOBO manual, the HD 7850 is a PCIE 3.0 standard, technically it should work fine, but some PCIE 1.0 MOBOs didn't even accept PCIE 2.1 cards.
