Just got my Radeon HD 4650 after waiting through the weekend, managed to take out my old PS and put in a new one, then put in my Radeon card. The computer will not recognize the card, I'm not getting a new device found, a odd device, no nothing. I have it hooked up right now and I can feel the fan and see the fan moving, the computer just refuses to pick up the card. Installed the drivers for it and rebooted my computer and still nothing. My computer always falls back onto the built in S3 3D Savage pro.

I have in in the AGP slot at the moment. The power supply came with 3 four prong plug-ins (For the hard drive, CD-Rom, graphics card.) I have it set to where my CD-Rom is the first thing plugged in, then my Hard drive, then my graphics card.

I have a ECS P4VMM2 1.0 mother board. It has an AGP 4x connector slot instead of an 8x. Besides that I'm at a loss. Any help is much appreciated.

did you plug in the power? that card requires a 6 pin (often called a PCI express power cable) power cable running straight from the power supply or it will not work. if you do have it plugged in, then its possible the voltage the video card (it still draws some power from the motherboard) does not match the power being supplied from the motherboard.

Yeah its plugged in and I can feel the fan blowing. How would I go to change the voltage to get the card to work?

Its actually got a 4 pin power supply, like the back of a Hard Drive.

4 pin molex? exactly what is the model of your video card because the only Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD 4650 AGP 1GB I can find requires a 6 pin power connector, not a 4 pin molex. Also, only certain AGP 8x cards are backwards compatible due to the signaling voltage. The cards that are backwards compatible are made to recognize signal voltage of both 4x and 8x slots, if the card does not have this, then the only way to correct it would be overclocking the 4x slot, that however, will most likely result in damaging both the slot but the video card and is not recomended, nor likely to work. To give you a good answer as to whether or not your card is backwards compatible or not I need the exact model number of the card.

Did you change the BIOS setting to use the AGP for the primary video device?

@the_patriot09

The Gigabyte HD4650 1GB AGP card only requires a 4-pin power connector.

Take a look: http://america.giga-byte.com/FileList/Manu...465d2-1gi_e.pdf

@Jmoss1994

Please go through this and let us know:

The following troubleshooting tips may help if you experience problems.
Contact your dealer or
GIGABYTE for more advanced troubleshooting information.

* Check that the card is seated properly in the AGP 8x slot.
* Ensure that the display cable is securely fastened to the card's display connector.
* Make sure that the monitor and computer are plugged in and receiving power.
* If necessary, disable any built-in graphics capabilities on your motherboard. For more
information, consult your computer's manual or manufacturer.
(NOTE: Some manufacturers do not allow the built-in graphics to be disabled or to become the
secondary display.)
* Make sure you selected the appropriate display device and graphics card when you install
the graphics driver.
* Restart your computer.
Press <F8> on your keyboard after system starts up. When the Windows Advanced Options
Menu appears, select Safe Mode and press <Enter>.
After getting into Safe Mode, in Device Manager check whether the driver for the graphics card
is correct.
* For more assistance, use the Troubleshooting Guide located in the Windows Help or contact
your computer manufacturer.
If necessary, adjust your monitor's setting using monitor's adjust panel to make the screen
look focused, crisp, and sharp. (Please refer to the monitor's manual.)
