I just did a fresh reinstall of windows vista 32 bit and have installed the chipset drivers. I have loaded catalyst version 8.11 to detect my Radeon 2900 Pro but somehow at the end of the process it only detects a Radeon X1200 series. I then tried catalyst 9.6 also no results. Because of this I cannot connect my monitor to my graphics card DVI as there is no signal.
Is my graphics card dead?
One thing to note is that I am using 2 x 6 pins on the 6/8 slots. Some forum said the 2 extra pins are just for ground and not important. Does my GPU have enough power?
