Trying to install this graphics card XFX R6770 core edition without much luck. the tower is a Dell e521 with onboard GeForce 6150LE. I am obviously doing something wrong. Ive went into the BIOS and switched the setting there...I uninstalled the nvidia display driver. Is there something else that I should uninstall? Everywhere I look in the device manager it seems nvidia controls it. Its an nvidia chipset installed as well. People keep saying to download the catalyst control and plug n play....but I do and the disc that came with it wont run and says to find the proper driver. So I go to FXFforce like it says and I cant find the driver for it. Im at a total loss of what to do. Thanks in advance!

Have you upgraded the power supply? Every e521 I've messed with didn't have a power supply large enough to handle add-on video cards of any quality.. But if it is working and the only issue you have is software related here is the link to AMD's driver download page..

Hope this helps..
