He doesn't have an AGP version. His earlier GPU-Z screen shot showed a PCIe x16 bus.

I have the exact same card as the OP, in fact, I have two in Crossfire, and they work perfectly. I've never had a moments trouble with them, except for a recent ATI driver issue. I rolled back and they were fine again.

I'm using the Catalyst 10.5 drivers, not the manufacturer's drivers. Aero works fine for me.

Following is the method I used to Sort out the issue...Please refer to my System Specs in the Lower-Left Corner.

I had similar problem: Let me briefly describe it.
My earlier 18" Monitor Worked very well with HD4670. However, when I connected the 22" Full HD Monitor, the System would Boot-Up... Reach the Log-on Screen & then it would go Blank!!

After some trouble-shooting & searching online... I summarized that the Card is the Culprit. Disconnected it & the Ran the system on On-Board Graphics... Got it Working!!!

Further the Problem is slightly unique... Using HD4670... the System Completely / Fully Boots-Up & Starts ALTERNATIVELY!!! i.e First Boot--> Normal Start-Up-->Shut-Down--> Second Boot--> No Display!---> Reset Boot--> Fully Working!!

Hence the ATi is to blame for NOT Releasing corrected drivers.. This is definitely a Software issue.

Here's how I "sorted out" the problem:

1) Remove Card from PCIe & Connect Monitorto On-Board Graphics
2) Enter BIOS & Set Display to Int Display First-->PEG & Int. On-Board Graphics--> If no card on PEG is present (Believe me, this may seem illogical... But the System is being made to understand...)
3) Install Windows 7... If you have an already set-up system...chances are you have also installed Catalyst Control Center (CCC). THEN:
a) COPY the contents of the ATi Display Software (Usually located in: C:\Ati). This is to be done to GET The Drivers... If you do not know where to find the folder... Then reinstall CCC & Note the "Extract Folder"
b) Uninstall CCC & ALL Drivers of ATi Card. The system will then show display at VERY LOW Rez..... eg: 640 x 480... Its OK.
4) Shut-Down
5) Physically install the Card BACK into the system & Connect Monitor to it.
6) Wait 5-10 Sec-->Start-up
7) Windows 7 should detect the Card & install ITS OWN Drivers for it... Its OK
8) After Install is complete... Go the Screen resolution (Right-Click on Desktop)--> Advanced--> Display Adapter--> Properties--> Driver--Update Driver--> Manually provide location--> Ati Folder--> Windows 7 will pick-up the relevant drivers & install them....
9) Now you will have Ati Card & Drivers WITHOUT CCC installed on your System... If this is fine... OK... If Not... then install CCC IF YOU WANT.
10) Now REBOOT (It may be Prompted after install... DO IT.. DO NOT Select "Reboot Later")
11) The System will start-up correctly.
12) Now do a Proper Shut-Down--> Wait for 5-10 Sec & Start-Up.
13) You should have a correctly running system
14) If you do---> Create "Image" & store it safe...

Back Again!!
My stupid self could no resist "updating" the driver I should have followed the dictum: If it ain't broken... Do no fix it!
But I did try to "fix" it & the Exact Same Problem is back :BANG:
Further, I followed my own advice given above & it does not work :facepalm:
Trying various Techniques AGAIN

Have you tried any of the "driver cleaner" apps available?

One is available at Guru3D - Driver Sweeper (Setup) download from Guru3D.com


I HAVE NOT tried this tool with Windows 7 (have not needed to). But in the past I did use a similar cleaner when I had video driver update/upgrade problems with XP and Vista.

Edit: I suggest a system image backup before trying these type of tools for the first time....

I Tried the App u advised. The App Works!! BUT the solution did not work.

Apparently, Radeon HD 4670 & Windows 7 are NOT a happy Couple. Hence, Myfinal Solution:
UN-INSTALL Windows 7.
Install Windows XP SP3 without Card
Install Card
Install ONLY Drivers
It Worked.

I am not Happy with the Solution as I cannot Windows 7 which I liked very much. But XP runs well on the machine meant for Windows 7.. SO might as well enjoy it.

I finally got everything working
Formatted my Primary HDD
Inserted the Radeon HD 4670 1GB GDDR3 Card in the PCIe Slot
Installed XP SP3 by eXPerience
It automatically recognized the card & all other hardware & installed relevant drivers

Everything Works.... As of now
