Radeon HD5450 Help

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just purchased a new graphics card for my windows XP system. I got a Radeon HD5450 card. I installed it into the computer and turn it on, it made a constant ticking noise and wouldn't boot up. I remove the card then and it booted up fine. So then I though it was the power unit not having enough power so I went and bought a 800W power unit the previous unit was only a 300W. I tested the new power supply unit without the video card attached and everything booted fine. Then I installed the video card again and I still get the constant ticking noise and no boot up. Anyone have any idea what is going on I'm so frustrated at this point feel like if just wasted a lot of money.

Also I tried disabling the old on-board ATI graphics card.

All help appreciated thanks.

You have wasted you money, unfortunately frown.gif
1. 5450 is low-power GPU, 300W PSU was about all it needed.
2. The card is DOA - dead on arrival. Return it, change it for another (same or similar) and try again.

Unfortunately things like that happen from time to time. Maybe someone wasn't careful enough with handling the box with the card.

I hope your replacement card works well!

Okay thank you for your reply, well I am going to keep the 800Watt power supply in the system as I probably will be adding in more hard drives and a better graphics card in the future just want to get a cheaper budget one at the moment. I got the item on amazon so I have started a return for the card. I just have a few questions to ask.

Does the amount of RAM or the type of RAM that the graphics card has matter? My PC only has 2x 512mb DDR2 sticks.

Also How do I figure out what version of PCIE slot I have just to make sure I get a card that is compatible with my slot.

395

I have been checking out the below cards any you would recommend based on what I have told you?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Palit-GeForce-8400GS-Super-PCI-E/dp/B0047EGV30/ref=sr_1_20?ie=UTF8&qid=1334447937&sr=8-20

One of those cards is PCIE 2.1 I think, don't know if it will work. If you have any recommendations of your own I would appreciate it and thanks for the help will be sticking around this community. thumb.gif

All PCI-E cards work on all PCI-E slots, so no worries there smile.gif

What will you be using those cards for? Hi-def videos or gaming?
Also, please add your current system to your sig, so I can give reasonable advices based on what other hardware you own wink.gif

edit: Also, this card is Much better than the ones you were looking at, for nearly the same price:

I have added the rig to my signature as much as I can hope this can help you figure out what is the best. This system will be used to play games such as America's Army, Minecraft, Garry's Mod, Counter Strike etc not very high end games. Thanks for your help thus far. wink.gif

For some reason its not showing my RAM in the signature, but I have 2x 512mb DDR2 sticks in, not to sure what brand they are but.

Can you afford the 6570? It's by far the best option in this price-range, and will also serve you well for newer games, should you decide to upgrade in the future wink.gif
Also, 6570 combines with AMD's Llano APUs for "dual graphics", meaning it will save you money, should you decide to go down that upgrade path wink.gif
