Not sure if this is the right place to ask this. I'm fairly new.

So recently I got a prebuilt PC with an:
ASUS M4A78LT-M LE
ATI Radeon HD 5770
AMD X4 965 BE
4GB RAM

So I start up the thing and I realize that the motherboard has an intergrated AMD 760G. However, I do not know how to switch to the 5770, and when installing drivers, it only recognises the IGP. I have removed the driver for the 760 and installed the CD drivers, but I only get the 760G again.

Please help, my PC knowledge is terrible.

Go in BIOS and disable onboard graphic card...

turn off the PC. When you turn it on, start pressing the Delete key when you see the splash screen. Disable the IGP. Also- make sure you have your monitor plugged into the Graphics card, NOT the display output on the motherboard itself.

Ok, I found 'Primary Graphics Accellerator', but these are my options:
GFX0-GPP-IGFX-PCI
GPP-GFX0-IGFX-PCI
PCI-GFX0-GPP-IGFX
IGFX-GFX0-GPP-PCI

What the heck? :??:

Ok- that is the order that you want it to try to use for Graphics. IGFX is your integrated graphics, PCI is a regular PCI slot graphics card. GFX0 is your primary PCI-e slot graphics card I think, and GPP is probably the second PCI-e slot.
You want to choose the first option:
GFX0-GPP-IGFX-PCI.
Did you verify that you have your Monitor plugged into the Graphics card outputs and not the motherboard IGP output?

Okay, I checked, it was in the motherboard slot. But now I have a new problem! My DVI to HDMI cable hardly works. When I put it on, the PC starts up, and then in about 15 seconds my Dell E1909W goes to power saving mode. I have no idea what to do. Any help?

the monitor isn't getting any signal from the graphics card..... so it is still using the onboard graphics, go back in to the bios and try some other setting.

I can't start it up now since it goes off before I can use any option of the BIOS.

Swap back to the motherboard output, go into BIOS, set it to one of these two:
GFX0-GPP-IGFX-PCI
GPP-GFX0-IGFX-PCI
and then save and exit, swap the cable back to the card and see if that works.

I tried it, but I used it with my old VGA cable (the M4A78LT-M LE does not have a hdmi port, nor does my monitor, but both have VGA ports). Still the same problem :(

hmm.. Are you just using VGA cable straight for both, or do you have an adapter in there somewhere? When you get into Windows plugged to the IGP, does it ever tell you that the 5770 is actually detected at all?

Yeah, I'm using a VGA to VGA cable, connecting from the motherboard to the monitor (no port for the HIS 5770). No adapters. When it's plugged in the motherboard, the 5770 isn't recognised a bit, even after installing the drivers and everything. Just the 760G.

You might actually have a problem with the card then since I think it should still be recognized by the PC, even if its not connected to the monitor... If you have another PC with a PCI-e slot, try dropping the card in there and see if it works (or see if you can try it in a friends PC).

Go in BIOS and check again, then turn on computer. When boot up windows go to control panel-display and see what you computer use (onboard or 5770)...
