Do these work together?

I recently bought the Radeon HD 4870 2GB video card off of

Replaced my MSI GeForce 8600 GTS also from

and put it into my original ASUS P5K LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard

Now my DVD drive isn't working, and my ethernet cable will not work. I am online through a wireless card. . . on my desktop. Is the HD 4870 compatable with my motherboard? What has happened to my drive? Why will my cable not work unless it's wireless?

  1. it should be fine .

    You may be having a driver problem .

    Did you completely remove all the nVidia software and drivers from your system before you installed the new card?
  2. It works, its a driver problem. ^
  3. i have the card working fine in the best display settings. i just can't figure out how to get my computer to recognize the dvd drive or the ethernet.

    let's say it is drivers. what can i do?

    i already uninstalled all the Nvidia drivers and reinstalled the ATI drivers. Put the video card in both slots. put the old card in but could only get the ethernet to work, not the dvd drive too. dvd drive is a sony and was working just fine before i installed this card.

    also i went through the registry and windows files to delete everything MSI and Nvidia related, apparently just going through the programs list and doing it doesn't do a proper job of it.
  4. You may have accidentally deleted something you need. You may have to go back in and rebuild the OS from scratch.
  5. i downloaded and am going to install windows 7 after i get off work from ups tonight, abouts 9:30 eastern. well see what happens.
