400 w mercury pi945gcm viewsonic 19 in 1 gb ram [tried hd 5670 but not wrking]
No no, there's must be something wrong, your system should be able to handle HD5670 just fine...
http://www.mercury-pc.com/product-spec.php?productid=751 Is that your board? What version of HD5670? 2.0 or 2.1? I guess you bought that board in 2006, so most likely it only has 1.1 pcie slot version, so if your current card is 2.1 then you have compatibility problem, updating BIOS usually solve the problem...
its hd 5670 2.1 how to update bios?
MERCURY PI945GCM BIOS Version/Date American Megatrends Inc. 080012, 8/16/2007
That's it, you have compatibility issue, because that card is 2.1 and your board is 1.0 or 1.1 version. Well, you must update (flash) your BIOS mobo with the latest one. I never flash BIOS before so I couldn't explain how to flash. Maybe Malmetal knows?
hey please tell how to update my bios
and can i use a hd 4670 card
Flashing the bios is pretty easy nowadays.The most common way is to download the relevant .exe file and execute it.It will automatically restart the system, flash the old BIOS with the new one and restart again.
but i dont knw where to find that .exe becaus there is nothing for BIOS update on my mobos website ...... so can anybody help
If you cannot find a bios update, then try to find a PCI-E 2.0 card.
Dude, I am having the SAME system (Not lying) i suggest you getting a ati hd 4890 1gb version my dealer said it will work on my pi945 mobo no more than $125
so i can use a hd 4670 then
ok thnx to everybody
Even I am having the same problem. I am using a asus en210 silent graphics card and have the same specs as ajmessi. In the device manager it shows a problem with my pci slot asking me to update the bios. But the bios update on mercury's website is old. Can someone please help me out?
And in ubuntu or any other linux distribution the graphics card runs without a problem.
