I recently gave a buddy of mine an old graphics card I had (AMD HIS Radeon HD 6870) and he's been trying to install it onto his computer which has an AMD APU (AMD A4-3420) but whenever he tries to install the driver the driver install software keeps grabbing the APU driver instead of the video card driver. The video card also isn't showing up in his device manager even though it is receiving power (the fan is spinning). Is there anyway we can get the driver file for the video card directly from you? Like I said when we run the available driver installer it keeps installing the APU instead of the GPU that we really need.
Here's his PC specs just to make things easier
PC Model: HP Pavilion p6-2310
Processor: AMD A4-3420 APU
Current Display Driver: AMD Radeon HD 6410D
Operating System: Windows 10 64 bit
Motherboard: AAHD2-HY (Holly2)
RAM: 6 Gigs DDR3-1600
Power Supply: Internal ATX 300W
Video Card we want to add: HIS Radeon HD 6870
Thanks for any help, if you need anymore info from us please ask and I'll be sure to check in shortly. I think what we really need is to somehow get the specific driver files for the gpu cause the catalyst installer continues to default to installing the apu driver.
In the bios, try selecting the discrete card as the primary.
