Hey all. Look I'm new here and I just need help.
I thought it would be a good idea to upgrade my old 5770 to a 2gb powercolor 6970. I got the card and I'm having some strange installation problems. Namely; the card wont work.
Firstly I can hear the card running. It's the loudest thing I ever heard but I know it's powered ok.
I uninstalled my old drivers and ran the install from the cd as instructed. I then put the card in, plugged in and powered up. Strangely I got no picture from the card inputs but I got picture from my motherboard's VGA slot. I thought that was weird but when I started up the computer installed drivers and I thought everything was fine until I went to check them. According to my display properties Im running a 700mb 4200.
I've done a reinstall. It didnt work. This feels like a driver issue but I've upgraded cards before without having trouble. I really don't want to have to reformat. Can someone suggest a course of action?
So to sum it up the card thinks its a 4200 and I'm getting no picture from the outputs on the card itself.
Im running a AMD 3.3g Dual Core with 4gb of ram with XP 32bit. Really need some help here or the card has to go back to the store.
