Video card not working

wfcrr asked
Last Modified: 2012-07-07
I have an Asus M2N68 AM SE2 mobo OS XP Pro and tried putting in a video card. The card is not being recognized. I do have power to the card and it's fan runs when I boot.  Have a digital cable running to monitor. Have tried the AMD cd with the driver and when I run the install, says no card is installed?

XFX Radeon HD 6870 1GB GDDR5 PCIe, Dual ...this is a new card, never used before. The computer I am putting it in has been in use for a few years, not sure if, well, just no idea why it isn't displaying or being seen. I have this exact same card in another computer and it was a no brainer putting it in the other computer, but that other computer is running Win7Pro and  Gigabyte mobo.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks.
