Graphics Card Memory Not Detected

Hello mates, I just built a new PC and I'm using the Dual-X R9 280 graphics card. But both SystemRequirementsLab and my PC detect the Total Available Graphics Memory and Shared System Memory as 256 MB, Dedicated Video Memory and System Video Memory as 0 MB.

Windows also says that my adapter type is: Microsoft Basic Display Driver

Can someone help me with this, it's really annoying! Thanks.

  1. Best answer
    that means you need to install the AMD display drivers! you can dowload from here http://support.amd.com/en-us/download
  2. Have you installed graphics card drivers? They should have come in a disc with the card, but I'd highly suggest getting the more up to date ones from the website.
  3. Seems that you don't have a driver installed.
    Please refer to the suggestion above.
  4. Thanks everybody. It's funny to see that the solution was this simple, but I'm sorry I don't really know much about PC parts. Thanks again.
