I just built a system yesterday using amd x3 720be, foxconn a7da, 4 gig ram, corsair 450HX, and 4770. I installed windows 7 RC1. Only problem was that windows 7 couldn't even tell that i had a video card in there so it uses the default "standard vga adapter". Removing the 4770 automatically installed the driver for ati 3300 HD. Is my video card defective or am i doing something wrong?

I tried installing Catalyst 9.1 and 9.3 drivers but to no avail. Windows 7 didn't even recognize that i had a video card plugged in. help?

Is your video card really plugged in? Sometimes there's small problems while plugging it in... What about 9.4?
Did you check on MS website forums about problems between that card and Windows 7?
