i bought an ATI hd 6870 today and im swapping from nvidia, i installed the hd 6870 and i plugged in the vga to dvi adapter to the card then put my monitor vga into the dvi adapter, then when i run my pc i get no signal on my monitor, ive read forums that say i need to uninstall my nvidia drivers and then install ati drivers but how can i when my pc wont detect the new graphics card

Pyree said:Put your old gpu back, uninstall driver, turnoff, put in new gpu. The gpu should run at vga resolution for you to install a new driver from disk. Then update to newest driver.
i tried that then when i plug my new card back in i still get no signal, so i need to use onboard vga slot to see anything

im too confused, nvidia drivers are uninstalled, on board graphics is disabled, i plug my monitor vga into my hd 6870 but it says no signal on a black screen, the hd6870 is working though cuz the fan is on
Pyree said:Ok, that is good. At least you have picture. It looks like you have 2 computer, download the newest driver from amd and use a usb to install the latest driver.
noo dude im only getting picture cuz im using the onboard VGA slot even though its disabled.. its so ******* stupid and confusing why cant it just work
Pyree said:Well I though that he is not familiar with his hardware, so I am trying to lead him to solve the problem with an alternative approach without the need to flash bios etc.
He may not have to flash it. Its probably in bios settings that hes missing so the next step would be to identify the mobo.
