Just yesterday I went to Best Buy and got a ATI Radeon HD 4350 card. I have a Compaq Presario running Vista 34 bit, and tried to install the the card- but no luck, the monitor doesn't power on when its installed! I went to the Bios and made the PCIE-16 the primary slot. I also uninstalled the intergrated graphic drivers (GForce) in the add/remove programs It seems that the PC doesn't recognise the card. When I take out the new card the PC powers up normally, but soon as I install the card the monitor gets no signal from neither the old or new cards' monitor output. Does anyone know how to fix this issue?
Yea, I had to extract the drivers from the CD because while the monitor would not load while the card was installed, the CD content wouldn't proceed with install for some reason and didn't display any error codes. After that, I downloaded the latest ones from the site- neither of the drivers helped the problem. It my be the hardware that's ruined. Or maybe its my power supply unit; I've just noticed that the recommended minimal power required is 300 watts while my PSU only outputs 250 watts total but that would be strange. Thanks.
