I have an old alienware wit ha Asus M3A32 MVP Deluxe, I had two ATI Radeon Hd4850 CF before, but now I bought a Sapphire HD6870, but when i plugged it in and all, I get no display, If i change back I get a picture. I have uninstalled all drivers.

If it matters, I have a AMD Phenom X4 2.5 ghz.

What is your power supply? Also, double check if you really turned it on.

its an alienware 700W PSU, and what did you mean by, if its on, it got the exact sound as it has when it powers up, and if i quickly change, it starts.

My bad in wording. I meant to say make sure you plugged in power connectors to the graphics card.

Hmm make sure the card is seated all the way.. Also try putting in your old 4850 and see if it works..
