Hi guys bought been given an r9 255 apparently its better than the gt 710 I did have in there, how would I go about installing the AMD I only ask because I have swapped out the graphics cards and the AMD isn't showing up in device manager having to use on board vga while I try and work this out. Any help would be appreciated. Tia
1 - Download the drivers for that card from AMD's site.
2 - Download DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller).
3 - Run DDU to remove the Nvidia drivers. Select "remove and shut down" since you'd be installing a new card.
4 - Install the R9 255.
5 - Boot the PC.
6 - Install the AMD drivers.
Ok just manage to get onto the computer followed all the steps to the letter and still it's not working??? Should I reinstall the 710 just to uninstall it again because the r9 is not showing up at all and I can't install and software as it says there is no hardware to install any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
The only other thing I can think of is that it's possible that you might have to go into your BIOS to set Enable Legacy Support (might be worded slightly different than that), as I *think* the R9 255 is based on an older chipset...
