I received the VTX3D HD 7750 GPU today and I can't get it to work at all. It does not show up in the drivers, does not install instantly (Like my 5450 does) there is just no sign of it.
My set up is;
AMD FX-4100 CPU
ASUS asus m5a78l-m lx Mobo
500w PSU (Prob generic but shouldn't be the problem)
I e-mailed the company that I purchased my PC from before I ordered the card to double check that it would be compatible and they said it would work no problem. I'm pretty sure they'd have no reason to lie.
I uninstalled the Catalyst control for my 5450, then took the 5450 out and put the 7750 in. It slotted in as tight as it could and I screwed it in. I then powered up my PC and there was no trace of the 7750, I tried installing the 7750 Catalyst from AMD but it still wouldn't find it.
I removed the card and put it back in about 3 different times to see if it would work but it still won't so I have put my 5450 back in and that's working again with no problems.
Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong? Is the card DOA?
I've tried everything again today with no luck. The card def isn't powering up at all and there's no signal from either port.
I think I'll go ahead and send it back. I'm now cautious about getting another 7750. Would a 6670 be ok for what I need? I'll be gaming on either a 1366x768 monitor or ideally my 32" HDTV, I'm not looking for ultra graphics I just want something decent looking with solid frame rates, I'm pretty much fine with 30fps.
You probably just got a faulty card. I assumed you connected the monitor to the graphics card if you got video, but since you didn't - it just confirms the card isn't alive. Just make them send another one of the same card.
