Hi I just installed a 4870 in my system and i'm trying to download and install the drivers.

Ive installed the proper driver but when it completes installing there isn't anything in the installation folder. Is there anything I should look for that is causing it to not be found?Any help greatly appreciated.Thanks.

EDIT: now i'm not getting video when the graphics card is inserted.

Hook back up to your integrated GPU take your card out. Boot the system go into the bios and disable your integrated GPU then shut down reinstall your card hook the monitor to it and reboot. If that doesn't fix let us know and we can try some other stuff.

I'm pretty sure it was just because i was using my vga cable from the mobo and not the dvi from the gpu. Thanks for the help, ill try it in case using the dvi cable doesn't work.

You forgot to hook up to your card? Don't feel bad something like that happened to me and I took my whole rig apart because I thoungt I for got a part or I installed something wrong.

I felt stupid when I saw that I hadn't plug in my monitor all the way in. It was plug in but not all the way so no video feed. It happens well I glad you found your problem So pat your self on the back and good luck to you.

thanks man, I still feel like a retard though. I took out the graphics card like 6 times and plugged it back in right after and I wasn't getting any picture. Everything was working fine, but then I realized i was using a vga cord from my integrated graphics.
