Graphics card not recognised - Page 3

post #21 of 36
When your boots up you will see a splash screen possibly containing the name of the makers of you board. On that screen you will be prompted to press "X" key to get into your bios. Most common seems to be "delete" or any of the function keys ("F#"). If you didn't catch it there then check your motherboards manual and it should have detailed instructions on how to disable onboard video.

if it makes any difference I am using the 10.12 driver and I am unsure if it supports 6870.

Go to this screen in your bios, and make sure to adjust where it says Internal Graphics mode, and select either PCI-E or disabled, whichever is the available choice.

This pic was from the extreme 4, so your bios may not be identical, but that option should be in the same place.

just out of curiosity do you have the dvi to vga on the card or do you have the dvi on the onboard graphics port still ?

just a heads up, you should not have to switch anything in your bios or anything at all, the motherboard should acknowledge the card by default.

make sure you have the dvi plug in the primary port on your Graphics card as i had a similar issue with my 4870x2 of sapphire's brand, it would not show a screen in any but the primary dvi port.

hope this helps you any wink.gif

if you have the plug on the primary port, and there is still no picture, id suggest checking with a different dvi to vga adapter, and last but not least, rma time is possible

Internal graphics mode on my board only has three options, UMA and SIDEPORT, UMA and SIDEPORT.

There is a primary graphics adapter mode which I set to PCI Express but when I attempt to boot from my 6870 it doesnt want to boot.

Ok, the primary graphics adapter mode is the correct setting, and PCI Express is the correct selection. I would say that you have either a dead PCI-E slot, or your card is dead. Are you using the slot closest to the CPU?

If you have another PCI-E card, you may want to try that with the same settings. If you can boot with another card, it verifies that the 6870 is bad.

Well something really weird just happened, I changed the power connectors for molex to six pin and the fans on the 6870 span up REALLY fast and are still spinning. Still not recognising it though...

I have also tried two different converters and have put them both in the two different DVI ports, no luck.

To answer your question I have the DVI to vga on the 6870. I just feel like I am doing something wrong seeing as the card is fully running its just not being recognised as being there.

I am going to bed but hopefully there is an answer when I wake up. Thanks for the help so far guy.

Ok so I have no idea what happened but I changed the PCIE slot it was in and it seems to now work. I think what you said was right and that I had a dead PCIE slot.

Which slot do you currently have it in?
