|I recently bought a new desktop.|
An HP P6210Y
Processor : AMD Athlon II X4 620
Ram : 6GB ( DDR 2 I believe)
Onboard 256 mb video
I wanted to update my video card to play games
I bought a Radeon HD 5750 from Fry's, I installed it on my desktop and put the latest driver on. I was testing out my games and everything was working for about 10 min until it froze. After that basically everytime it loaded up windows it would freeze right away.
I figured it was my power supply, because it came stock with a 300w supply.
I bought a 700W from new egg
The computer still freezes, I am able to go into safe mode and uninstall the drive ( it doesn't freeze when the drive is uninstalled)
I am also able to use the onboad adapater ( With everything working fine) after disconnecting the video card.
Now one thing I'm not to sure of is that on the video box it says its required to have a hd capable monitor. I recently bought this monitor off new egg.
It only supports VGA connection. So I had to buy a DVI to VGA adapater- As far as I can tell VGA supports 1080P and reading the reviews people say it works.
I also downloaded a previous driver to see if it was a latest driver issues
