  1. Greetings! to all techie out there,

    I just bought a new ATI Radeon HD 5670 1 GB GDDR5 and installed it on ASROCK ConRoe1333-D667 R1.0 motherboard but it has no display (The GPU Fan is working).

    I already configured the BIOS option "Primary Graphics Adapter = PCI Express" but still has no display.

    When I tried to install it on Dell Dimension 5150 - Pentium 4 motherboard it works. Whats the problem? Power Supply? x 16 PCI-e version (2 or 1. x ?). According to wiki, almost all 2.0 PCIe graphics card are backward compatible to 1.x

    Did you have a graphics card on this ASRock board prior to the HD 5670? If yes, then you must uninstall all the previous display drivers before putting in the new card. It's also recommended to uninstall any onboard video drivers which you may have.
