    It is almost a month now, I am trying to put HD5770 to work. You helped me in the past on same issue, I contact AMD and they helped me to disable on board card via BIOS. I also took the PC to local PC
    repair shop, the tech guy with 15 years exp told me the MOBO is not compatible for HD 5770 and he recommend me to use Geforce card. he put HD 5770 to test in different MOBO, was working fine. so Please help me in details how to reset the BIOS and how to get into bios by using on board graphic card. I will try one more time.....Thanks

Hi!

As far as I know (and I'm dealing with computers for almost 8 years now), situations where a graphic card is incompatible with a motherboard are extremely rare! I only met with this problem once - on my own computer actually! I tend to believe that it may be only a coincidence, and it might be due to a misconfiguration in the BIOS, for example. Try resetting the BIOS, and/or check video-related configurations (using the on-board video card to access the BIOS).

With that said, you could try ANY other graphic card of your desire. It can safely be even SAME card, but of a different manufacturer. Take a look here.
Theoretically, it can be ANY card you want!

Feel free to consult me if you need any further assistance...

Good luck,
Pelu.

    Hi again!
    How are you?

    That's very strange, what the technician have told you, as your motherboard is AMD based, exactly like the graphic card (ATI=AMD) - so they should definitely fit together.

    Follow the instructions on page 30 of the User's Guide to reset the BIOS (=Clear CMOS).
    After doing so, plug the VGA cable of your monitor to the motherboard's VGA connector, then power up the computer and press the key frequently until you get into the BIOS.
    Enter Advanced BIOS Features and set Init Display First to PEG.
    Save and quit (F10).
    Shutdown the computer and insert the graphic card.
    Power up the computer - and it should work now!

    If it doesn't - have the technician checked your board with any other PCI-Express graphic card? Did it work?
    I'm trying to say that there MAY be something wrong (damaged) with the motherboard itself...

    If you get your PC running, I'd always recommend having the latest BIOS build installed! Follow the instructions on page 65 (Installing and Using @BIOS) to do so.

    Good luck again,
    Pelu.

    Hey!

    I'm afraid I have no better suggestion than trying a different card. I can't say for sure which will work and which not - as it's totally a case for trial and error... A very rare one.
    Look at my first post to find HD 5770 cards of different manufacturers. As I said, it could be theoretically ANY card you want - ATI (AMD) or NVIDIA-based!

    I'm sorry I can't give you a more precise solution, but there are few "gray" areas in the computers' world - and you was "lucky" enough to step into one... :/

    Good luck again,
    Pelu.

Hello,

Thanks for using FixYa.

I would suggest that you try to get an MSI motherboard. MSI is very specific about the compatibility for their products for gaming GPUs like the SAPPHIRE HD 5770. I've used MSI motherboards with different range of video cards and I've never encountered any compatibility issues. Not a single one. I've done this because I have a computer assembly shop and I assemble Gaming rigs for gamers. You have a very nice set up right there, that should get you playing Crysis on High settings.

So, to sum things up. Don't but Gigabyte mobos, they ****. Compatibility wise and overclock-ability wise too.

I hope this helps. Thanks and good day.

When sound card connected in PCI slot the comp will hang over and over when i try to install driver of 4 channel tlink card. how i can slove the problem and which card is most suitable with Gigabyte...


This is gigabyte's link for your board, there are 4 different revisions, you can see the different choices at the top. Anyway, you have a PCIe x 16 slot so you could go with a Radeon HD graphics card, ATI has a DVI to HDMI adaptor that works great. Two things, what is make and model of the card you are installing and where are you getting your download from? You may have to dedicate the slot in Bios. Let me know.

ASRock Wolfdale1333-D667 and Radeon 5770 graphic card


Actually, one thing. Intel motherboards, like your Wolfdale is an Intel board, they don't work with AMD graphics cards. I've seen this arise many times, the graphics card is AMD and your MOBO/CPU is Intel... that's a red flag in my book automatically. Take it back and try an Intel Graphics card.

Sapphire Radoen hd 2900xt m512 mb


Hi, Have you overclocked this card? if so inspect all the capacitors on it and see if any are leaking or bulging on top or bottom. If all appears well, then borrow another monitor and try that one. If that fails Check your RAM chips are seated properly.

If there is no change then the only answer is a faulty graphics card.
