I'm upgrading my 6 year old computer from Vista to Win 8.1 and it may not support my Radeon HD 4890 graphics card, and Im wondering where I can find out what cards are available for my Gigabyte GA EX58 UD3R Board.
Ive never bought a replacement before, and any help would be appreciated.
Thanks very much for your response. Ill spend some time studying the data in your link and hopefully find something suitable.
Great your username!
If everything gets done tomorrow, then you will never be late doing it!
I have already found this driver, but the firm that built my computer insisted that the card wasn't compatible and this is why it wouldn't power on. However, they later said that the problem was the PSU which they replaced.
I received the computer back today, unpacked it, and found damage consistent with it being dropped some distance onto a hard surface. The side panel has a large buckle on the bottom corner, and the shock has been enough to split open the PCIE socket carrying the graphics card. Bits of plastic from it were loose inside and the card itself is sitting with all the contacts exposed, held on by the case retaining screws.
I don't know what to do, as the repairers say they will probably want it back again, and I desperately need some of the files on the HDD. I don't have another computer available to fit the HDD as a secondary temporarily.
