ATI Radeon HD 5450, no signal (DVI)

  1. I've recently bought an ATI Radeon HD5450 however when everything is plugged in Í can't get a signal on DVI only on Analog. I am sure there is no problem with the cable, not only have I tried another DVI cable but my old video card does get a signal (DVI) with everything plugged in the exact same way.

    If computer specs are needed:

    MS Windows XP Home 32-bit SP3

    Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 @ 2.66GHz 38 °C

    I had a similar problem, card wasn't brand new when the problem occured but happened after owning it for a few years. Found out the card was dead. Not sure if an rma would fix your issue.

    Thanks for the reply, could you explain me what an RMA is.
    The card is brand new so the card being dead sounds a bit odd

    rma is when a person returns their item because its defective. There should be a form you can get from w/e you bought it from. Contact the customer support from where you purchased the card.
