Hello,

I bought HD 5670 two days ago and tried many ways to make it work on my PC - DG31PR, Intex 450 watt PSU. I upgraded BIOS also.

But still card is not working.(No display, fan is not spinning)

Can anyone please help me on this to find exact root cause so that I can spend more money on something which will make that card work.


I don't wanna sound rude but please don't throw any guesses. :p

Guessing is the main part of helping in a way.

In the BIOS, have you set the main video 'object' to PCI-E?

Also have you made sure any additional power connectors on the GPU are connected to the PSU.

I set Primary Video Adapter as PCI-E.

I didn't added any external power supply to the card as I guess external power suppy is not needed to this card and also no cable was provided with the card.

The first thing I would do is put a decent PSU in the computer.

Can you try it in another computer?
September 10, 2012 7:24:17 PM

May be I'll try it tomorrow in my friend's computer but I'm afraid he is also having less wattage PSU.

and @ Rugger, before buying a PSU I'd like to be sure that new PSU will fix it because I can't afford it if that doesn't work.

Do my card requires additional power supply ?

Don't think it needs another power connector.

That GPU is a low power (under 70W max power draw) card so it would probably work in your friend's comp if he has a PCI-E slot.

My PSU has 18A on 12V rail. :cry: 
September 10, 2012 9:11:01 PM

If it does not need external power supply then my PSU is problem right ?

one more thing to add that my Card has a 6-pin port. For what is would be used then ?

A 6 pin?, that would be power i think if they look like this -



Then you would need a new PSU or molex to 6 pin PCI connectors.

That's probably 18A MAX and not continuous...

If you're GPU has a 6-pin port, then it requires a 6-pin PCIe power connector. If your PSU doesn't have one then the card probably came with a 4-pin molex to 6-pin PCIe adapter. Check the GPUs box for the adapter. Most 5670s don't require a 6-pin PCIe connector; they only need a 400W PSU with around 22A on on the 12V rail. What is the make/model of the 5670?

If the 6-pin connection on your graphics card looks like the connector in the picture above, then your graphics card requires additional power from your PSU. If your Intex PSU doesn't have one of the 6-pin PCIe power connectors, then you have to use a 4-pin molex to 6-pin adapter cable that should have come with your graphics card.

Thanks a lot Jai and Rugger for your suggestions.
I'm going for adapter. But are you sure I'm not risking my Card with 18A current on 12V which is total of 216W.
Can my psu will handle my PC with 216 watts ?

Please suggest

You're welcome! I definitely can't guarantee your system's safety...that's one of the reasons that I suggested replacing it in the first place. A good PSU will have protections that shut it down prior to damaging your PCs components; i seriously doubt that your PSU has those protections so if it fails it could take parts with it. Your PC probably only draws150-175W at full load os it might work, but I would just get a better quality PSU.

Now this must be last question though it is common but still I need an advice.

Confused between two PSUs.
1. Corsair CX430 V2 which is well known to all. ;) 
- 90 - 264 Vac Input Voltage
- 28A
http://www.flipkart.com/corsair-cmpsu-430cxv2uk-psu/p/i...

2. Corsair VS450 which I think has launched only for China and India because of it's 240 Vac Input Voltage.
- 22A and 18A dual 12V rails.
- 240 Vac Input Voltage
http://www.flipkart.com/corsair-vs450-450-watts-psu/p/i...


Please suggest which one better for me. I don't mind price difference here. I might need advice because of input voltage and railing difference.

Regards,
Shashi

If you're not going to use 115V power, then the VS450 is suffiicent and comparable in quality to the CX430. Choose whichever one is less expensive.
September 12, 2012 1:14:54 PM

So to conclude my final conf. is
Intel DG31PR
Intel Pentium Dual Core E2200 2.2Ghz
250HHD
Transcend 1GB RAM
Corsair VS450.
Radeon HD5670 DDR3 1GB

Would new PSU will physically fit in place of Intex 450?

Best solution

The Intex 450W IT-2045S PSU is a standard ATX PSU and so is the VS450; the VS450 will fit in the same location as the Intex PSU.

You both were very helpful. I appreciate it.

I don't know how this thread wil close. If anyone can please you may close it now.
