I'm building my first rig and have just installed an XFX Radeon HD 5670. My PC's specs follow:
Motherboard: ASRock N68C-S UCC CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 250 RAM: Corsair 4GB DDR3 (1600MHz) PSU: Antec TP-550 (550W) Graphics: XFX Radeon HD 5670 (1GB GDDR5) OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit (SP1)
Unfortunately, my machine is now crashing. Whenever I try to run games, I usually load in successfully but before long, my screen displays all one colour/pattern.
The card seems to be properly seated properly although, not having installed one before, I could be wrong!
I have updated the "AMD VISION Engine Control Center" so I assume all necessary drivers are installed. Could Windows' autoinstalled drivers be interfering? Also, my monitor is connected via VGA-DVI adaptor: could this be the source of/contributing to the problem?
