You can find your drivers at AMD Drivers & Downloads Radeon HD4870, enter your operating system, 32bit or 64bit, and download.

Good luck, hope this helps.

Windows 7 Premium 32 bit
 
 

Not to try and revive a "dead" thread... but my other computer has the same issue... except I can't even get Windows 7 to load.

Setup:

GIGABYTE GA-MA790XT-UD4P AM3 DDR3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard


SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 4870 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported


CORSAIR CMPSU-850TX 850W ATX12V 2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Suppy


AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor Model HDZ955FBGIBOX

CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1333C9


Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card

Linksys Wireless-N PCI Adapter With Dual-Band WMP600N Network adapter - PCI

To install Windows 7, I had to do a clean install and remove the ATI vid card and replaced with NVIDIA 8800 GTX Ultra I had laying around.

I tried to re-install the card after Windows 7 was installed and I ran into the same problem:

The Windows 7 logo appears on the screen and starts to load windows... a second later the screen goes black and the monitor goes into "No input mode" and nothing else happens. I hard reset and it keeps happening over and over.

I think Dave76 may have mentioned it having to do with the rig having 4 gigs of RAM and 2 gigs on a video card on a 32bit system.

However, my other computer also has 4 gigs of RAM and the SAME vid card (just the X2 version that is stated as being supported on Microsofts webpage) and it runs just fine on a 32bit install.

If you can't install the driver for this card easily, there might be a physical problem with it. Or your system could just be bonkered. Contact ATI/AMD for an RMA offer.

I'm actually starting to think that I may have a DOA card. When I first installed the drivers for this card on XP 32bit, it stated in the Device Manager that is was "Radeon 4800 series" instead of saying "Radeon 4870". Also, when I replaced the card with the older NVIDIA card the boot up was LIGHTNING fast. It always seemed to hang with the ATI card... I never would have noticed had I not replaced the card with the NVIDIA one to install Windows 7.

Yes, I'm really starting to think it may be defective. Odd, the RAM I bought was supposed to be 3x 2gigs... but one of those was also defective so now I only have 4gig. Strange.

Having the same problem

I'm having the same problem with Windows 7 64bit.. System boots up and runs fine /w motherboard gfx, biostar 790gx, once I install the 4870 in the system, and try to boot, it crashes. I can't even boot in safe mode. Is there a way to not detect hardware changes during boot, and run on generic vga driver?
