Windows 7: Help with Graphics Card Compatibility Problem


10 Sep 2012   #21

MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
 
 

I'm a noob with GPU, so this advice might sound silly :P
If Possable, is your card hooked up with a power supply? Because that might make it not work anymore.

I will try that driver. Um the 5450 is actually in PCI-E as I found out later on.
And it is not connected with anything it is just plugged into the PCI-E slot and has the VGA cable coming out of it.

That card doesn't need any power connectors but the question is how big is your psu

It has to be atleast 400w for your whole system to work properly lower end systems ussualy have that or 350 w check your psu and check the drivers

If you are using anything beyond 12.6 then that is probally why you are having issues the 12.8 drivers cover all the cards but it seems like the 6 series and above benefit from it

The motherboard that you list has no PCI-E slots. Its primary graphics slot is AGP 8X.

The Radeon HD 5450 is available for a PCI slot. (While the names are similar, PCI and PCI Express are entirely different.)

I have no idea what the best drivers would be for a PCI Radeon card. I suggest trying the regular Catalyst suite. That's assuming the card is working at all. Do you get video when the monitor is connected to the card rather than the onboard video of the PC?
