So I have a levono m91p desktop I got the msi afterburner radeon hd 6450 card installed it and getting not signal my bios is set to auto detect so I changed it to only detect my onboard graphics to see what's going on it goto my device manager and I believe my card is reading as other device pci serial port I have to install CD for the gpu and tried just installing the drivers from it and still nothing I'm so confused and I'm not some tech savvy guy but from what I seen you should be able to just install the hardware and install the driver

no I didnt set bios to pci
That is where you need to start!. ;)

Set it to PCI and connect the monitor to the GPU not the onboard graphics, you might get a message that the monitor is "Out of range", open the monitor menu and reset it if that happens!. :)

Hi Nostalewk,

it might be that as you are using a Smart TV, the screen resolution set on your computer is too low and that is why you are not getting a signal?. What type of cable are you using to connect to the TV, an HDMI or VGA cable?. :)

What make and model is the TV?, if we can determine that, it might help solve your problem!. Does the TV have settings to change the resolution?, if it does, put the Radeon GPU back in the computer and change the TV screen resolution until it picks up the signal from the computer!. :)

Samsung nu6900 I think is the model
Ok so custom I guess is kind of useless it doesnt let you change resolution just zoom and move the screen left to right. Other picture size settings for tv is standard 16:9 and 4:3

I wonder if a connection must be made I found a pc setting but it doesnt look like that it's just screen sharing in the connection guide area

Did you connect the computer with a VGA cable or are you still trying to use the HDMI cable?, I would get a VGA cable if I were you and it should work!. ;)

Using hdmi I cant find the vga Adapter that came with the card to hook it up is it possible that the reason my computer isnt reading the card is because theres no drivers for it installed?
