Question Graphics card freezing installing drivers

Jun 16, 2020
I have this r7 260x that i got off ebay, i seated it and connected pcie and dvi cables, the computer would turn on but would not post on screen. But i can get into windows on intel integrated graphics with the card still in the computer, windows detected it as a Microsoft basic display adapter, i have tried to install drivers and flash a new bios both failed. When i try to install drivers the computer would freeze and if i try to flash a new bios it would just come up with error message or would freeze.
