hi guys
just bought MSI R6670 1GB video card
and I'm having a little problem
now I'm using a 5450
the new card is working fine
But when I put it on my PC
I have the normal run beep and every thing still black like I put nothing in
so I called the seller and told him about that he told me to update my BIOS
he thinks that the Bios version is old and can't read the card

so I was looking here and there so I found that
that's my motherboard

there's a bios update

place the card properly in the slot in such a way that the pin should not be visible when you look at the slot. when it is not properly inserted you hear a beep and nothing will be visible

no my PC always make a little beep on start up and then every thing is visible
I'm sure the I inserted the card properly
I thought the I'm an Idiot so I took it to an expert but still not working
so I think it's an old bios problem not a slot or card problem

Likely a faulty card if the old one works. If you can, plug it into another system to test it.

yes I mentioned this in the post
that it's working perfectly on 2 other system and don't work on mine
the old one is working perfectly so it's not the 6670 or my MOBO PCI e x16 slot
so will it be an old bios problem like the seller said ?
and are the steps above are correct
