that 5450 gfx card is a type that isn't very powerful, but more than makes up for it in the compatibility, budget  and HTPC rankings. when you state that you are having very little luck with it, do you mean it isn't working?. a few things come to mind. How did the initial installation go?  did you remove the  remnants of any gfx card that you had before? did you check in your BIOS if there is a switch to prioritize the pci for display? Those things come to mind and are quite common when installing this type of hardware.
