GPU shows BIOS but doesn't Windows

Hello, so I've gotten an MSI HD6850 Cyclone and when i power up the computer I see BIOS normally i can get into it no problem, I even see the windows logo and booting dots but after a black screen during boot i see only black screen.. but it has signal cuz the monitor is not showing no signal, only it's blank, from first when i wanted to install drivers I saw the windows normally, but when I installed from then I dont see. Any solutions please?

You sure the card is good? Can you get into windows from safe mode?

sounds like you might have installed the wrong drivers.

 

try to get into safe mode and uninstall the driver and redownload them from AMDs website

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

 

Don't dilute <good thing> by always trying to focus on, and drag conversation back to, <bad thing>.

You should be able to manually install the drivers in safe mode, if they install properly, but windows will not boot into normal mode properly, then it's possible the video card is bad.

while not the ideal way, you don't really have much of a choice. you will need to interupt the normal boot sequence 3 times to force it into Recovery mode and then (hopefully) be able to select safe mode as a boot option.

 

When the computer is booting, you will need to hold down the power button once you see the windows logo with the circling dots to force it to shut down again,

do this 2 more times and it should say that it's going into the Windows Recovery Environment.

you will then need to select

Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup Settings > Restart.

 

upon the next restart you will have a black screen with white text that you can select with your keyboard and choose "safe mode" as the boot option.

Okay so I've gotten into a safe mode and I forgot to mention that I'm running the card on a shit board currently... It is an Mobo with max of 2GB RAM so even the safe mode is stuttery af
