My integrated graphics don't work. There's an hdmi on my motherboard so I know for sure I have integrated. I thought it was my 7970 but then when I went back to my old 6870 ( the one I just replaced)nothing shows up on my screen at all. Not sure if I moved something inside or what.


I tried overclockers.net or wtf its called but they're slow to respond. If you guys can't help, I guess I'll just take it to a repair shop to check out the state of the gpu and motherboard

Did you by any chance uninstall the drivers?

We just keep doing the wrong thing until it turns out right.

I uninstalled the drivers from the previous card, yes.

Are you sure the power connectors are securely connected and the card is completely locked in?

I'm sorta sure? I can't push the gpu all the way down... I'm scared it'll break. Plus, doesn't really explain why my integrated gfx aren't working.

Did you disconnect any power from the motherboard?

It looks like everything is connected. I'm a newbie at this so looking in here is a bit intimidating.

I have a feeling something is not securely connected. Do the fans spin when you power it up?

Post some pics of the inside, so we can check it out.

Yeah, my gpu has two fans and they both spin. The led on the motherboard turns on too. Hold up. I'll take pics

If possible, have you set your BIOS to "Legacy Mode"?
