May have an idea

I think I know what is happing with my 5770.
I have an older A8R32-MVP DELUXE motherboard what I believe is that the motherboard is not recognizing the new 5770 video card.
At that time about 4 years ago a one gig of memory on a video card was not thought of yet, well not for the every day joe.
So I thought all I need to do is update my bios and chipset drivers so I did that .
The bad thing is that the last update for my morther board was in 2007.
So I think I am a victim of old hardware blues =(
I think my only corse of action is to update my motherboard.
What do you all think ? any imput would be appreciated.

  1. I know of other motherboards that have this specific issue as well. You should go ahead and try to upgrade the motherboard though, assuming you have went through proper diagnostics on your HD5770.
  2. Troubleshoot first, then upgrade.
    My motherboard had not recognized my card either, but I somehow figured it out and made it work.
    Google the keywords of your problem:
    (A8R32-MVP does not recognize graphics card)
    or
    (motherboard does not recognize graphics card)

    EDIT: This person has the same problem as you on this forum.

    He had to do a complete upgrade of his system, but in the case of the last user that posted, he switched his HD 5770 with a GTX 260 (because of the 1GB ram) issues? But I believe its a problem with your PCI-E slot on your motherboard. It is x1.0 am I correct? If so, you need to upgrade that mobo.
