I bought an AMD e4690 PCIe x16 graphics card for cheap on Ebay and installed it in my Asus m2n58-am motherboard based PC.
The card works, and the system boots up, but all I get is the basic VGA driver, which results in very slow screen updates.
I tried downloading the AMD Auto detect driver tool. It launches, but shows up only for an instant then disappears without doing anything.
Next I tried downloading and installing/uninstalling several of the AMD Catalyst driver packs, first trying the embedded drivers (which does actually list the e4690), then the newest Catalyst driver sets listed. In each case the install reports a successful install with no errors. On subsequent install attempts, it tell me the Catalyst Install Manager is already installed (and it is listed in the Add/Remove Programs). But there is no Catalyst Install Manager to access that I can find, and if I choose uninstall it shows only the HDMI Audio Driver in the list of installed drivers. It's as if the ATI driver software is not detecting the card.
I've read in forums about having to do a complete manual uninstall of the Catalyst software, but before I go through that process I'm wondering if maybe I'm beating my head against a wall with this particular card.
I've read it's part of ATI's embedded line up, and I'm not sure exactly what that means.
Can anyone tell me if this card should work in a standard home pc type environment.
