After installing the drivers that came on the disk with the new card and rebooting the system small black squares showed up on the screen. They run diagonally in a pattern. I am unable to get rid of them without disabling the graphic card. I also tried downloading the latest AMD drivers from the website. Any help is great. Thanks
Thanks for the help guys. I suspect this is the problem. I have eliminated the possibilities of the problem being with the monitor or cable and also the pcie x16 slot in the motherboard. As the same picture shows up on my hd TV with a hdmi cable and my old graphic card works in the same slot with no problems.
