View Full Version : Problem with PCI-E card



Emil

I recently installed an ATI Radeon HD5450 in an ASRock 945GCM-S. The video card doesn't seem to be detected since I can't get any input from it to my monitor. The onboard video continues to work. Any ideas on how I can disable the onboard video and get the card to work?

I have the latest version of the BIOS (P1.20) and I tried changing a couple of the options in the BIOS (even though the card should be automatically detected).

Thanks in advance.

I have the same issue but with a Radeon HD5670, was reading on other forum that I need the bios version 1.21, but cant find it anywhere.

Here is the link to the Ars Technica forums, were they posted the beta bios, it does work as i am now enjoying the HD5670, thanks to CBerSK for the tip, really thank you bro :D

PCI-E card not detected - Ars Technica OpenForum (http://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1112920&p=20796418#p20796418)

I will keep a copy of the Bios and the .txt in case anyone else needs it and until they post it officially here.

I have the same issue. Apparently, the link that the above user provided for the 1.21 BIOS is no longer valid. Can anyone send me the 1.21 BIOS for ASRock 945GCM-S? The latest BIOS on the ASRock website is still 1.20

Thanks!

There, i put it up on rapidshare.

The .rar contains:
.txt with detailed instructions
.iso that is seemingly empty, but after burned on a cd will work properly as a boot disc with the bios updating tool, and the actual 1.21 beta bios.

Muchas Gracias, revdarian! i'll give it a try as soon as possible.

i don't think any of us consumers knew that PCI-E 2.1 would have compatibility issues with PCI-E 1.0 motherboards. it took us all by surprise!

all right! thanks a bunch. it worked great!

my Radeon HD 5670 is now working in 945GCM-S after the 1.21 beta bios update. I was told by ASRock support that there was no way to get the 5670 working. I guess there is some mis-communication going on between the europe/america/asia teams

Glad that it helped you too.

The Europe Team is the one that provided the beta bios, hopefully the other teams will get the memo about it's existence.

Hi Revdarian. I know this is a three months old thread, but I can't find the 1.21 BIOS Update anywhere. Would you kindly upload the file again, maybe on Mediafire or Megaupload? The Rapidshare link doesn't work anymore.

I don't have any account on a permanent host, so that will have to fall on your end.

I have just reposted it at this rapidshare link:

If you know of a permanent host or anything similar, feel free to put it up and link it here for the community :)

Good day, everyone. I'm Zean, and I'm new here.
I, too, have a problem with my 5750 working with my ASRock Wolfdale 1333 D667. The card is not detected. I tried disabling onboard graphics and updated the bios to 1.50 to no avail. Tried to download that 1.21 bios from rapidshare but I can't. An error pops up when I click download. Is there any other site where I can download that and try it? Thank you very much.

Dude, find out a place that can keep that file forever and upload it there, rapidshare deletes it each couple weeks and i won't be around forever.

Hi everybody!
I've just bought an ATi 5670, but when i connect it, the monitor shows "no signal".
I have the Wolfdale MotherBoard and i haven't do anything in the BIOS yet.
Is it possible to make the Card works in that mobo? Is there any solution to this? AnyBIOS update or something?
It would be a shame if would have to buy a new MotherBoard...

Thanks a lot!

Greetings Miss Emily,

I have a Asrock wolfdale1333-d667 and have the same issue with an ATI RADEON HD 5670 1gb DDR5, I disable the onboard video, put the VC in the PCI-e slot and got no video, I also have a PCI-e currently installed (geforce 8400gs) and it works.

I downloaded the L1.53 release from asrock site and installed it in an equal mainboard and the bios is working, I cant test right now the VIDEOCARD because it's located at home and right now i'm at work, Do you think this upgrade will make my RADEON work? plz say yes

Thank you in advance

To Miss Emily,

I have the same issue as other forum members with my AsRock Wolfdale 1333-D667 and my new ATI RADEON HD 5450 (512MB DDR3) graphics card. The board does not recognize the card even though the PCI Express slot is error free (I tested other cards).
Please direct me on how to resolve this issue.

Thank you

Dude right now, I'm having some drinks, but if you leave me your email address I can send you the bios update for your mainboard (I had the same issue with ati radeon 5670 1GB DDR5) or miss Emily can send to you the link where I downloaded the files... Don't worry I'll work :)

I've got similar issue with HD6670 and ALiveNF7G-HD720p R5.0, though from time to time I somehow get the card to be recognized (most often after CMOS clearing --- it takes then a few seconds more to boot, but the card is recognized) --- I wonder if this could be solved by some BIOS patch (I have tried several different revisions, including the newest 2.20 one, but I was unable to get it to work properly).

Any help is appreciated.

I am confused about what the BIOS file name is. Will the prompt be:



afudos wd133d61.53.rom /p /b /n /c /x




Thank you
