HD4890 BROKEN?! Can you guys help me out? (Seriously, this is weird.)

Got to boot in windows with the Hd4890 in it! BUT!: I had to set the standard (default) GFX to onboard.

Now I get error code 43 for the Hd4890

some more info about the error:

Device information
Name: ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series

Id: PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9460&SUBSYS_27021682&REV_00\4&204EAC5&0&0010

Also I did a bios update.. Didnt do alot..

my hardware:

Antec 902 case, fully working (fans etc)
ASUS M4A78T-E motherboard
Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition With Noctua U12P Cpu cooler.
XFX HD 4890
GeiL DDR3 4GB @ 1333 mhz with 7-7-7-24 timings
PSU: Antec TRUEPOWER 650 Watt ( 2 6 pin's are connected to the graphics card.)

I tried to uninstall any drivers, and reinstall them. Is my gpu broken or something? Or do I need to change something in the BIOS?..

More about hd4890 broken guys seriously weird
  1. If you set the BIOS to PCI and not onboard, can the 4890 get you to the BIOS screen or it simply does not display anything at all? Are you sure your monitor cable is connected to the 4890 and not the onboard port ?

    If it does not display anything at all, then maybe you could contact the card's manufacturer and return it for a replacement.
  2. As you said, when connected to the card, NO image at all, no post, no bios screen NOTHING. So it could be that this card is defect? I'll return it tomorrow.
  3. It seems like it. If it's covered under warranty, then just return it. No headache flashing the card's BIOS.
  4. True. But what if they test it and report it's not defect? Then I'm still F*******
    COULD it be the motherboard or a bios setting?
  5. Don't worry about it. Ship it back for replacement then deal with it after you get it back.

    The display should come up with the 4890 at all levels(bios, os install..etc). If not something is wrong.
