    radeon 5450


      Hi can someone help

      I am an old git who knows nothing about computer

      I have a Acer computer

      All i know is it has DDR2 Ram in it

      I bought a Radeon 5450 card for it to up grade DirectX to 11 so I could play the latest Formula 1 Game from steam

      I read the card uses DDR3 ram.

      My question is will it work ok?

      I have to add after fitting the card every thing was great had 2 screens could use the game, Hunky Dory.

      I shut the PC down for the night following morning disaster

      PC would not start had read warning sign sayong something about Bios and god know  what else put old card back in still the same

      In desperation took the battery out and reset pc

      Question was it the graphics card?

      Any advice, simple please,

      Greatly appreciated
