Have you tried updating to the latest driver,or even rolling back to another driver.

Maybe its the driver thats buggy then,it is in Beta remember and will possibly have several issues.Have you tried an older driver.

ran the disc with drivers on it had the problem so i updated to the beta version with no change infact my old onboard graphics was more stable with games

perhaps it would help the more knowledgeable

Sorry Ninnian,thats about as far as dare go regarding graphics cards.

One more thing:

Though the onboard graphics should have been auto-disabled when you inserted this card,have you checked in the bios to see if the onboard graphics are disabled.

unpunctuated text on your twenty twenty three posting it always helps to add the occasional fullstop or even a paragraph or two that makes the text even easier to read and to understand as sometimes it is difficult to see where one topic begins and another finishes

motherboard is asrock 939NF4G-VSTA 450 POWER SUPPLY . When i installed the card i went into bios and put graphics from pci to pci-e was that right or not
