|Plug and Pray isn't working, and I think I need some kind of manual solution.|
I have a HD 6450 that I am trying to install on a hp 462432-001 mother board. (It supports the shader models I need, and I don't need a lot of power. In before "Why would you do that?")
When the graphics card is in place, I can boot to Windows 7 (I can shut down by pressing Windows Key, Right Arrow, Enter), but the screen remains blank. Neither the VGA port on the card, nor the one on the mobo works.
Removing the card restores the mobo VGA port to normal function.
I suspect that the GFX card is not detecting the monitor, and defaults to one of the other two ports, but I don't have the cables, adapters or monitors to test that.
I can't install AMD Catalyst or Omega drivers while the card is out of the machine, because the installer depends on detecting the correct drivers automatically.
Is there any way to make this work without access to the Catalyst controls?
