See if hd 5450 work in other pc or not.Then get nvidia gt 610
have u tried using a different videoport than hdmi?
yes, tried vga and dvi. it doesnt boot up. it turns on and the fans seem to be running at high speed but nothing happens
did you disable onboard video in the bios? I assume it has onboard video.
does ur onboard videocard boot up?
if so u might have to disable it in the bios so it uses ur pci-e lane.
Go to bios- advanced video chipset - init display first -set it to peg or pci e
yes i disabled on board video.
Then it think your pc has pci exp 1.0slot so that is why hd 5450 doesnot work as it is pci 2.1 and also no bios update.so you should get nvidia as they are pci 2.0gpu and compaitable with pci 1.0 slot.
