Everything goes wrong after installing graphics card

Computer specifications:

Processor - AMD A4-5300 + onboard graphics

Motherboard - EMAXX A55FM2HD-iCAFE

RAM: 2x2 gb DDR3

PSU: AnyPower, total output of 450w

HDD: 360gb HDD


So, it started when I attempted to add a dedicated graphics card into the CPU. The card is: MSI CYCLONE R4770 (I just watched some videos on how to add a graphics card to the computer)

I opened the computer, placed the card into its PCI-E slot, connected the power supply cable. and screwed it in place.

Note: I didn't install the drivers before installing the video card.


1. Now, i turned on the computer and had a tv connected through the motherboard via HDMI cable. It showed nothing, so i tried connecting the HDMI cable to the video card, also nothing.

2. So I got a smaller monitor, and connected the DCMI to the video card (I didn't bother trying connecting it to the motherboard first)

and then the APTIO Setup thingy popped up, I had no idea what this is so i just chose the default settings and saved it. It restarted, but to my confusion, it just goes back to the APTIO Setup in a loop. So what I tried under the "boot settings" if im not wrong, I enabled an option called the "Fail-Safe" mode. So after that it just restarted again, and then POOF. THE MONITOR CANNOT DETECT ANY SIGNAL FROM THE PC. IDK WHAT TO DO ANYMORE.


What i'm thinking of now is I should've installed the drivers first, but then I had no disc, the video card was just a gift. So I was just planning to download it in the internet. At any rate, I don't know what to do now. Someone help me.

What is the model of this AnyPower  PSU?


Are you running Crossfire?


If you are running the MSI Cyclone R470 in Crossfire you will need a PSU with a 34A 12v rail and be able to provide 750W.


If you are not running Crossfire you still need a PSU with a 26A 12v rail with the ability to produce 400 -500 Watts.


Removing the dedicated card for the time being was a good suggestion.  This should enable the integrated graphics.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
