Radeon 3000 with HDMI, DVI. Integrated into the motherboard... Its an Asus motherboard ending in M, cant see anything to get details.
Win xp SP3
My HTPC was working great on XP and had no issues with video etc. I needed extra USB ports so I bought an extender that attaches straight onto the internal USB ports as I didnt have a spare PCI. In order to get to the USB ports, I removed my WIFI card.
Thats when the issues started. I had an error pop up when i rebooted and it said catalyst drivers were corrupted. So I uninstalled them and rebooted.
On reboot, I had no video through either HDMI or DVI at any point. No bios, no post screen, no windows logo. The computer is booting normally because the windows chime comes on via my PC speakers, there is no video at all. I figured it could be the new hardware additions, so i removed them but still no video.
I hooked up a VGA monitor and got a picture so reinstalled the Catalyst drivers and still no video via hdmi.
Formatted the hard disk, reinstalled windows. Still no video.
When I plug in the HDMI lead the TV switches to HDMI so it recognises that a hdmi lead is in there, its just a black screen.
I went into catalyst using VGA and it doesnt recognise the TV. I have a brand new DVI to HDMI lead that I used and that didnt work either, although it works fine on my other computer.
Im at my wits end with this and im tempted to buy another card to put in it so I can use it again.
Any advice would be great.
