  1. I got my 6950 today, but it's not working........

    Step1:I disable my old graphic card
    Step2: I change the old g.c to my 6950 at the same spot.
    Step3:install my driver.. But it is not working..

    And 1 thing I dont get. After I done all 3 steps, and it's not working. then I uninstall my new. g.c driver and enable the old one. and it works pretty fine... is there a build-in graphic card?? if so, the one I took one out is??

    reply asap pls...

    Do you actually see a picture at all on the monitor?
    Also it might be obvious but make sure the connection from the graphics card to the monitor is correct.

    My graphic and my gaming graphic is 1.0. So im sure I deleted/disabled my old G.C. Now I think all I need to do is make sure my g.c is at the right spot and make it detectable...
    Btw: the fan of my graphic card is running. does tat mean it is completely seated and right spot?
