  1. Reset bios to go back to onboard. Did you set it to PCI or PCIexpress?

    Hey! Nice car BTW!
    I reset by removing battery. So I am back up, but I can't get it to see the stupid new card I just got...any thoughts? Info is everywhere for this card, but I can't get any of them to work! Beginning to get pissed!
  3. There have been some issues with new PCIexpress x16 v2.1 in older v1.x motherboards can you post all your specs so we can see if that is a possible problem. Then again there is always a chance that the card is DOA.

    ...and yes its an older (2007) motherboard.
    Here are my specs...

    Integrated Intel 82945g exp chip (drivers 9/09)/realtek HD Audio
    avermedia ntsc/atsc tv tuner card (uninstalled. needed both bays for 5670)
    card is oem ati hd radeon 5670 dx 11 / 1 GB DDR5/manu biostar/sigma gate/ box says nvidia gforce, but card is ATI

    Any help would be greatly appreciated or it goes home 2morrow!
    Thanks in advance!

    OEM´s are notorious with problems with the new cards. Maybe a card like HD4670 would be a better solution.
  6. Thanks Rolli!
    That's what I get for trying to save literally $15...
    Ill return...Sounds like a plan!
    Thanks again! :)
