Graphics Card Issue Causing Annoyance

  Gummomarx 15:14 20 Jan 2017

My nVidia Quadro FX 3500 died. Someone gave me a Radeon HD 5450 card, so I installed it.

The problem is that, Photoshop functions that used to take less than a second with the Quadro now take up to 15 seconds with the Radeon.

Any ideas?

Check in device manager to see if your old graphics card still shows up under display adapters and if so disable or uninstall it.

Sorry for not getting back sooner.

All software avenues having been explored, I managed to get a used FX 4600 from ebay for £20. This now works perfectly.

Thanks for all your help.
