Hi, I have on my motherboard (ASUS P6T SE) two different graphic card. ATI Radeon HD 4650 and Radeon HD7870. I am using win7.

I have new drivers, but Radeon HD7870 is not recognize.

Have anybody idea how is that?

The simple answer is.. you can't have two very different gpu's in the same system. You need a driver that accepts them both, but there isn't one that works here. Use only the 7870.

After Catalyst 12.4, all pre-5000 cards were relegated to legacy status, which means a different driver code base. 

Unless the 7870 works with Catalyst 12.4, you will not be able to use both cards in the same system.
