Running two ATI cards is CrossFire not SLI, and no, you cannot run those two cards together. I am assuming you are reffering the the Video game Second life. The 4870 is still a beast of a card, I find it next to impossible it wont run the game. Make sure you have the latest CCC driver from game.amd.ati.com
It will say that because is between the integer of 4800-4895. It doesn't mean the system thinks it's a 4800 it just means it's in that series. Shouldn't be causing you any problems however as the hardware will do all the work regardless of what Windows thinks it is. The catalyst utility should be more accurate by the way,
When this problem occur? this problem occur when you installed the driver of the video device? When you installed a software? or when you installed a new hardware?
if the problem occur when you installed the driver of the video device or when installing a new software, you need to boot in Safe Mode. If the problem occur when you installed a new hardware you need to check the BIOS setting in IRQ, check if there is a conflict in the hardware... If you use video card when that problem occur and you have onboard video device, take out the video card and use the onboard video and boot to windows and uninstall the software that cause the problem. if you use onboard video device try to put a video card and remove the software that cause the problem..
try to change the memory of your computer if you have extra with the same specs. If you don't have a memory reinstall your Operating System.
If you can't install windows and the computer keeps on hanging or restarting while installing, I think there is something wrong either one of the computer hardware, like the Memory, Processor, Motherboard, Hard Disk, and other interface devices. TY
I would advise your friend to ugrade that PSU first. 450-500w at least. Depending upon your friends preference, both ATI and Nvidia offer decent cards for under 100 bucks. For the $200.00 he could upgrade both. Check out www.newegg.com. Thats where I buy all my stuff.
BV300 For PCI Express
Diamond BizView BV300 PCIe
Different situations call for different solutions, and the BizView
line of cards make it possible to turn workstations into multi-display
work centers. Diamond created two versions of the card to suit two
segments interested in multi-display configurations. The BV300 is a PCI
Express version that utilizes the processing power of an ATI RV515
graphics core for "2D workstation applications like AutoCAD, Adobe Suite and GIS software."
The ATI RV515LE is the same graphics core used by Radeon X1300
series graphics cards. The core on the BizView BV300 runs at 450 MHz
and is accompanied by a 128-bit memory bus and 256 MB of GDDR2, located
on the board. The BV300 can be configured to use an additional 256 MB
of HyperMemory by allocating 256 MB of system memory for graphics purposes.RICHARDM69
If you have on board graphics try removing video card and reboot when computer rebooted turn it of and refit card and restart when restarted computer should recognize new hard ware and should find the already installed drivers if not try installing drivers again Sometimes windows does not recognize new hardware until its refitted had this problem with modems alot and the above method solved it
