Hey all, I recently purchased a Radeon 7850 HD card, after being assured by many people that it would be compatible on my system. However as I fit it, my monitor would not show anything and I would have nothing but a black screen.
I followed every guide, uninstalled and disabled my old drivers from my old card (NVIDIA 8800GT) and even after this failed the first time, put my old card in and enabed safe boot, and re-disabled/uninstalled the drivers again.

My specs are the following:

Intel Dual Core E6750 @2.66GHz
Conroe 1333 DVI/H Rev2.0
4X1GB 240Pin DDR2 DIMM Sticks RAM
Cooler Master 600W RP600
AMI 2.10 BIOS.

Is it possible that my motherboard isn't compatible with a PCI 3.0 card, despite me being told beforehand that it was?

Many thanks for any help you can give. Ross.
