Windows 7: Windows 7 Professional Won't Detect My Radeon HD 4670

I disagree there.



Also, check out XFX Radeon HD 4670: Read product information and write a XFX Radeon HD 4670 review
"These graphics cards do it all with break-through energy efficiency, eliminating the need for an external power connection and making them easy to install."

Besides, I hope I'd notice a 6 or 4 pin connector sitting on the card. O.o

The picture has a power connector in the right upper corner O.o

Sure looks like it from watching the picture, but that's simply a black box-like thing, like the one in between the cylinders.

There are two versions of this card from XFX. One has an S-Video and 2xDVI, the other has DVI, D-SUB, and HDMI. Neither of them have PCI-E power connections.

However, min power supply for them is 400W, so I'd buy more into the fact that it's not getting the power it needs to run properly. Have you tried disconnecting your cd/dvd drives and running only 1 stick of memory to see if it will recognize it then?

I tried it just now, and it still won't detect the graphics card. Hopefully that means we can rule out the power-issue as the source of my problems. :/

Its the card - being an Nvidia chipset, can you try an Nvidia card in place of the ATI? This is hardware - so do you have an alternative Nvidia card?

My Powercolor AGP ATi 4670 card says on the BOX >

" Warning minimum 450 watt power supply. If PSU is used below given rating, GPU could be permanently damaged"

Presumably, PCI-e versions are different?

Are you sure you set bios up correctly?
Is there a set of pins on the motherboard incorrectly shorted/unshorted by default?
You should always check them with a new M/board as quite often wrong pins are shorted.

Have you read your manual - a classic?

reset bios to "optimized defaults" and just go thru procedure to set up graphics properly.

Try card in a different pc with correct 'minimum' PSU rating!

Presumably so, yes.

I'm positive the BIOS is not the issue, yes I've tried loading the optimize, failsafe, setting PCI-E as default adapter, you name it.

A set of pins? I don't understand that section, sorry, language issues. Perhaps you could explain it another way? ^_^
What do you mean by shorted/unshorted?
I set up all pins on the motherboard according to the manual, and I find it strange that everything works great except the computer won't recognize my external graphics card.

I don't have another computer, and if the PSU was the issue, my understanding would be that all customers who bought this package won't get it to work, which is not the case (apparently).

And no Frostmourne, I don't have a PCI-E nvidia card :/
