Card fan runs fine at start-up, no red lights, all seems well. I flashed it with the asus 5970 bios and it took just fine. Thought that might be the issue. The card will be recognized once I boot into windows with a 5870 as the 1st card plugged to monitor. 5970 is in 5th slot per motherboard instructions MSI 890FXA-GD70.

Then the 5870 will load the ati drivers, but they won't take for the 5970. Then after I reboot to finish off the 5870 driver install i get a hang at the windows splash screen.

Any thoughts? card seems fine otherwise in all aspects.

Could it be that it can't take catalyst 11.12 driver? 5870 takes it fine and this is windows 7 pro service pack 1
