Hi there im having a problem getting the Redeon powercolour 9600pro 256mb graphics card to run om my 845gl/gv mobo running a 2.26hmz cpu and 512mb ram getting 1 gb soon. Mobo has 1 AGP 4x 8x slot and 2x PCI slots.

I have installed the card into the AGP slot and hooked up the power cable to it then started the pc up and windows has not found new hardware and when i install the drivers cd it cannot install as it cannot find the card. What do I have looked in the BIOS and was like ummm ok what to do. the mobo manual is ****.

Windows won't find new hardware because it doesn't care - it already found it and installed it as a generic VGA driver with standard low res settings.

So as far as its concerned theres nothing to worry about.

Just go to ATIs website and download the driver for your version of card and version of WIndows.

I may be missing something here - is the Graphic Card actually displaying something on the screen ?
if i plug screen cable into the card i get nothing. the fan is going on it and thats it.

If its not then where are you getting this message below from please ?

Its connected the wrong way round.

Turn the system off and connect the floppy cable properly.

Make sure the red / blue line (on the side of the cable), is going to pin 1 on the floppy and the mobo.

And make sure its enabled in the BIOS.
