I assume you mean you installed chip set drivers?

Did you install WinXP on your new hard drive or add a second hard drive for storage?

You have not provided enough information.

Tell us the make and model of the brand name computer, or the make and model of the mboard if it's a generic desktop computer,

Is the computer working fine other than it has no video ?

Are you hearing the normal one short beep from the mboard while booting, that indicates it has completed the POST successfully ?
Are you hearing a beep pattern other than that, or no beeps at all ?

Are the power and hard drive activity leds coming on, the fans and the hard drive spinning while booting ?

Is the hard drive activity led blinking like it normally does while booting ?

What do you mean when you say...

"I just installed new chip set....."

You can't have installed a new main chipset unless you've changed your mboard.

Did you change the mboard ?
If yes, tell us the make and model of the mboard.

If this is a desktop computer.....

Were you fiddling with connections inside the computer case before your present situation ?

If you have installed a different CPU - processor - on your mboard that your mboard's bios version cannot recognize, your mboard may not boot normally and if so you may get no video

If your computer has both one or more ports for onboard video - video built into the mboard - and one or more video ports on a video card installed in a mboard slot, in most cases, the video output of the onboard video is disabled when you install a video card in a AGP or PCI-E X16 slot, and you will get no video if the monitor is plugged into the port(s) for onboard video.

If you have changed the mboard, if the new mboard has onboard video and you've installed a video card in a PCI-E X16 slot, if the main chipset is one of the ones that supports Hybrid video (both onboard video and the video on the card enabled at the same time), if the video card does not have one of the few required video chipsets supported by the Hybrid video feature, due to default bios Setup settings, when the video card is installed in a PCI-E X16 slot, the onboard video is still working and you get no video from the card in the PCI-E X16 slot. In that case, you need to change some settings in the mboard's bios Setup to get video from the PCI-E card in the slot.

Please answer ALL the other questions I asked.

What is the AMD part number of the CPU ?
............

" i went to install drivers and can not view on monitor "

You do not need to install video drivers to have video while booting. The software installed in the operating system on the hard drive, if it has any data on it, has nothing to do with that. All modern mboards and all video cards already support basic VGA video.


Assuming that the system is working fine other than you're not getting video from a PCI-E X16 card installed in a slot...


This, that I have already mentioned previously, APPLIES....

"...if the new mboard has onboard video and you've installed a video card in a PCI-E X16 slot, if the main chipset is one of the ones that supports Hybrid video (both onboard video and the video on the card enabled at the same time), if the video card does not have one of the few required video chipsets supported by the Hybrid video feature, due to default bios Setup settings, when the video card is installed in a PCI-E X16 slot, the onboard video is still working and you get no video from the card in the PCI-E X16 slot.

ATI Hybrid Graphics
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATI_Hy...

Excerpt...

Right now the latest generation of Hybrid Crossfire pairs an 890GX or 880G (Radeon HD4290 and HD 4250 respectively) motherboards from the AMD 800 chipset series with an HD 5450 Radeon video card from the Radeon HD 5000 series.

The official name for ATI's Hybrid video feature is Hybrid CrossFireX.

ATI CrossFireX
http://game.amd.com/us-en/crossfire...

However, the info there needs to be updated to include info about the 880GX and 880G main chipsets.

CrossFireX compatibility chart
http://sites.amd.com/PublishingImag...

See the line near the bottom - AMD 880G (AMD Hybrid CrossFireX)

- only the HD 5670, HD 5570, HD 5550, and HD 5450 video chipsets on a video card support the Hybrid video feature.

What it amounts to is the mboard's bios settings are usually set by default to support Hybrid video. If the video chipset of the card installed in the PCI-E X16 slot is NOT one of the few that support the Hybrid video feature of the 880G main chipset - e.g. Radeon HD 5450 , then when you have installed the card, the onboard video is still enabled and the video of the card in the slot will NOT work. ONLY certain AMD / ATI video chipsets support the Hybrid video feature of the 880G main chipsert - NO Nvidia video chipsets support it, for ANY AMD Hybrid CrossFireX capable main chipset.
(Some NVidia main chipsets support a similar feature - Hybrid SLI video - only certain Nvidia video chipsets on PCI-E cards support that. Some Intel main chipsets support a similar Hybrid video feature.)
If you do NOT get video from the card in the slot due to the default bios Setup settings, then you must change settings in the bios Setup, when a monitor is connecterd to an onboard video port, such that the PCI-E slot is designated as the Primary video adapter or the Intialize video first adapter, or similar, AND the onboard video must be disabled.
See the descriptions of the bios settings in the mboard manual.

(if you make a mistake and have no onboard video and no video from the card, you can restore the onboard video by removing the Cmos battery, then installing it again (with + visible when installed) , or by clearing the Cmos by moving a jumper on the mboard, moving it back. You will get a Cmos Checksum Error or similar message (monitor connected to the the onboard video) while booting when you have done either of those things, and will need to set the current time and date in the bios, Save settings to stop that error. )

Your explanation is as clear as mud.

"after installing all said items i went to install drivers and can not view on monitor"

OK, you got a new board, CPU & HDD. After you installed these items in your case, you then installed Windows & your monitor was working fine, right? Because you can't install drivers until after Windows is installed. Which version of Windows & where did you get the drivers from?

FYI

How do I know about you having to change bios settings to get video from the PCI-E card ?

ATI Hybrid Graphics
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATI_Hy...

There are older AMD main chipsts that support Hybrid CrossFireX video, but there is no compatibilty chart for those that I know of.

I have an Asus mboard with the 780G main chipset.

It supports Hybrid CrossfireX video.

(The article calls it Surroundview. The Asus manual calls it Hybrid CrossFire, without the X, but you need to do the same thing(s) in the bios Setup if you don't get video from the PCI-E X16 card by default.)

AMD 700 chipset series
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMD_70...

Excerpt...

ATI Hybrid Graphics
Main article: ATI Hybrid Graphics
The ATI Hybrid Graphics technology applies to all or some of the integrated graphics chipsets of this chipset series, technologies including Hybrid CrossFire X, SurroundView and PowerXpress. Reports confirmed that the 790GX IGP (codenamed RS780D) chipset will be able to handle dual video card and IGP as a CrossFire X setup[5]. Hybrid Graphics are only available with 24xx, 34xx, & 42xx model ATI graphics cards.

(the 780G main chipset must be used with certain 24xx or 34xx cards)

I don't have one of those required video chipsets on the ATI PCI-E X 16 card.
By default I got no video from the card.
I had to change some bios Setup settings.
