I JUST BOUGHT A FORCE3D RADEON HD 5450 1GB GRAPHIX CARD IT WORKS ON A DIFFERENT PC BUT MINE IT DOESNT, MY MOBO IS
Compaq-Presario RK545AA-ABA SR2163WM AND IT IS RUNNING WINDOWS VISTA.
HER IS THE DEAL WHEN I PLUGG THE CARD IN THE MONITOR DOESNT PICK IT UP OR THE ONBOARD, NOW WHEN I UNPLUGG IT THE ONBOARD ATI RADEON 200 WORKS WHATS GOING ON I HAVE TRIED turning on the pci-e on in bios, nothing same thing i thought it might be ram, nope same thing, i installed the driver using the onboard graphix card thinking that it was the case nothing same thing i thought it might be the power supply nope same thing please please help me this card i checked and its compatible with my mobo??????????????
you know i wouldnt be on here if i wasnt serius, and yes it should be as simple as puting the card in and plugging in the vga cord and updating the driver but you cant when there is no signal to the monitor at all when the card is plugged in thats why i am asking for help in the first place not tring to be rude. i am just very frustrated.
got new motherboard and same thing so i took it to two computer tecks and they couldn't figure it out, so i did alot of research and found the solution, asrock mobo update from there site was easy and it works just fine now. thanks for the help.
