I have been recently installed the AMD Radeon HD 6670 graphics card. I followed the usual recommended procedures to accomplish this. This included uninstalling all old drivers, installing the video card and hooking up the VGA cable directly into the card, and installing new drivers. I am able to get the card detected in device manager and it is fully functional.
The problem is that every time I shut down my computer and turn it back on the card is no longer detected. Furthermore, I have to plug the VGA cable back into the standard video port because apparently the computer has completely forgotten about the new graphics card. When I check device manager, the Radeon 6670 is no longer detected and instead the computer has switched back to the Standard VGA settings. I am a complete amateur at these kinds of things and I am clueless on how to fix this issue.
Any help would be much appreciated. If there is any information that I have left out that could be useful please inform me and I'll try to provide it.

Uninstall all driver's by going into safe mode. Then turn off the computer and put the card in a different PCI-E slot. Boot into safe mode again, and re-install the AMD driver's. It should be 12.6, if you have issues with that version, use the 12.7 BETA drivers.
Unfortunately, my motherboard is rather outdated and I only have one available PCI-E slot. To make matters worse I am unable to uninstall or install drivers in safe mode. The system keeps telling me it cannot gather system specifications.
