Hi guys, I just bought a Video card and tried installing it and no go.The card is a Powercolor Radeon HD PCs 4850. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate final. I also Have an ASUS P5Q-EM MOBO with 4gigs of ram Intel Core 2 Duo E8400. When i install the drivers this is the error message i get. Ithought the card was bad so i sent it back to NCIX for an RMA. They have since tested the card and found nothing wrong with it so they are sending it back to me. Is there a trick to loading the drivers?

Do a Windows Update and make sure all the .net frameworks are current on your machine.

Then try to install.

If they are already current, install the driver manually using the device manager. Extract the files by running the. exe and then close it right after extraction.

Right click on the card, choose properties, driver, update driver, browse my computer for driver software, let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer, have disk, browse.

Now point it to the .inf, where the installer .exe extracted it to.

C:\ati...

Use the driver from here.

You could also install the optional component available called Avivo, which will let you transcode video to many popular codecs including H.264, MPEG2, MPEG4, WMV using the GPU. It is very fast but only handles certain types of input files. There are files that could be made to work with this by demuxing the video from them first, then loading into Avivo. That will be in the catalyst control center under basic, if installed.

On some motherboards you have to disable the onboard graphics before you install your new card. gong by your user CP it says onboard graphics. Just a thought.
