Hi!

Yesterday I bought myself a new graphics card: Radeon HD7870.
I've plugged it into my motherboard: MCP73VT-PM but the thing is that I don't receive any signal from it when I connect the vga cable into it, tried with hdmi cable aswell...
Also bought a new PSU 550V to make it match the requirements..

Can it be that the onboard vga graphics collides with the new card? If so... could anyone help me out? I've tried almost everything, spent the whole day trying to get it to work.

My BIOS settings doesnt support editing the onboard stuff.

Thanks in advance :)

PCI Express® based PC is required with one X16 lane graphics slot available on the motherboard
500W (or greater) power supply with one 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connector recommended
Did you connect the 6-pin PCI Express power connector?

The second 6 pin plug on the graphics card is not there for decoration, it needs to be used.

Also, you posted to another user's thread asking for help with your issue. I've deleted that post as that is called thread hijacking and is not allowed.
