Still cant get graphics card running.

first i got a "SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card ( 11202-00-20G)"

hooked it up and everything, but i couldn't get my computer to recognize it...did a little bit of troubleshooting...realized i needed a bigger power supply...hooked a 500W power supply up, and figured everything would work fine, but still having the same issue. can't get the graphics card to work. any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated!

  4. If you had to get a new Power Supply for your computer then i will assume that you were running on integrated graphics before and you need to make the switch in your BIOS to PCI-e x16 graphics slot. The BIOS should control all those things, i had to do this exact same thing once with a 5770.
  5. sorry I didn't realize you had any video.

    looks like you're running on standard windows drivers?

    if you haven't downloaded the CCC yet, do it.
  6. Your post title is "Cannot get graphics card running". Yet you say you get video, so obviously it's running......

    Not sure how you would expect it to be recognized if you failed to install the driver.
  7. it's still reading my graphics card that is built in to my motherboard.....therefore i "cannot get NEW graphics card running"
  8. Are you connecting your monitor to one of the motherboard video outputs, and not the new graphics card?
  9. is the gpu fan running if it has two power plugs are both of them plugged in..also what the model of your pc and any mb info you have..not all video cards will run on older mb chipsets..
