I bought a GIGABYTE radeon hd 6850 quite a while ago. The first day i got it everything worked fine. I played for a while and it would just turn the screen black, the computer ran fine and i could still hear sound but no display. i would shut down the computer and a few times it would work fine again and after a while the same problem. i gave up on it and deleted the ati ccc and just today i decided to mess with it again. i lost the disc for the driver but i dowloaded it from the site here. it keeps saying there is a failure to install the install manager and my computer will not recognize the graphics card at all, im a using the hdmi port on the card and connected it to a dvi-to-hdmi adaptor for my monitor, this is how it worked before. now i cant get the driver to install at all and my computer doesnt even seem to register that i have the hardware installed. The card makes noise it works and is running and connected to all power supplies just like before. my computer also keeps registering and putting me on my default graphics NVIDIA and when i disable and uninstall it, it just installs it for me. i cant seem to get it to work at all, when i change the monitor to dvi it turns black and says no signal so my only way to use the computer is on dsub which is connected to my rgb and the factory display on the computer. please any information or help will be appreciated.
I just want to play some games DA** IT lol
