Hardware and Software Installation
This chapter details how to install your graphics accelerator in your system as well as
where to download associated software and drivers.
2.1 Installation Overview
Once you have determined that your system meets the minimum requirements,
perform the following tasks to install your new graphics accelerator. Detailed
installation instructions are provided in the following sections.
1. If you are replacing an existing graphics accelerator, uninstall the old graphics
driver and software.
Note: If you are using a motherboard containing an on-board graphics solution
and do not intend to use it as part of a multiple monitor display, disable it.
2. Turn off and disconnect your computer system.
3. If needed, remove any old graphics accelerator(s).
4. Install the new graphic accelerator.
5. Reassemble and connect your computer system and display(s).
6. Start the computer system and install the AMD FirePro™ drivers and
configuration software.
7. Restart the computer system.
2.2 Installing a PCI Express Graphics Card
Please read all installation instructions completely before you begin.
If your computer has on-board graphics, you may need to disable it through the BIOS
configuration. For more information, see your motherboard documentation.
Note: Always handle a graphics card with care when adding or removing it from
your system.
• Never twist or bend your card.
• Avoid interference from the card's fan housing with mechanical hinges or clips
inside your system's chassis.
• Make sure that the PCIe® card slot-locking mechanism on the motherboard is
unlocked or open before inserting or removing a card. Please consult your
motherboard manual for instructions, if necessary.
1. Turn off your computer, monitor(s), and other peripheral devices.

2. Unplug the computer's power cord, and then disconnect all cables from the back
of the computer.
Caution:
Wait approximately 20 seconds after unplugging the power cord before
disconnecting a peripheral cable or removing a component from the
motherboard to avoid possible damage to the motherboard.
3. Remove the cover to your computer's case.
Note: If necessary, consult your computer's manual for help in removing the
cover.
Caution:
Static electricity can seriously damage computer components. Discharge
your body's static electricity by touching the power supply or the metal
surface of the computer chassis before you touch any components inside
your computer's case to avoid damaging them.
4. Unscrew or unfasten and remove any existing graphics card from your
computer, if necessary.
Caution:
Make sure the PCIe card slot-locking mechanism is unlocked or open before
trying to remove a graphics card. Failure to do so may damage the card and/
or the motherboard. This locking mechanism may be hidden from view by a
card's fansink.
Figure 2–1 Example PCIe Card Slot-locking Mechanism
5. Locate the appropriate slot and, if necessary, remove the metal back-plate cover.
Make sure all internal cables are clear of the slot.
6. Determine whether your graphics card is long enough to fit securely in your
computer, or requires an extension bracket the hold it in place. To install an
extension bracket:
a. Align the holes in the extension bracket with the holes in the end of your
graphics card.

b. Screw in the extension bracket firmly.
Note: Graphics card and extension bracket may not be exactly as depicted.
Figure 2–2 Extension Bracket Attached to Graphics Card
7. Align your AMD FirePro graphics card with the PCIe slot and press it in firmly
until the card is fully seated. You may need to hold open the PCIe card slot-
locking mechanism with your finger when you seat the card.
8. Screw in or fasten the graphics card securely.
9. If your card requires supplementary power and must be connected directly to
the power supply, locate the appropriate power connector cable (or cables) from
the power supply and connect it (or them) to the graphics card's supplementary
power connector(s), which are usually located in the upper corner of the card.
Note: Before installing a card that requires a supplementary power connection,
make sure your existing power supply has such a connection available.
10. Make sure no internal cables are interfering with components inside the
computer (for example, a cooling fan) and replace the computer cover.
11. Reconnect any cables that were disconnected during installation and plug in the
computer's power cord.
12. Turn on the monitor, and then your computer.
If you have properly installed your graphics card, operating system messages will
appear and the boot procedure will proceed.
Your monitor will be running in a basic (VGA) video mode. Higher refresh rates are
not available at this stage of the installation. Once you have installed the AMD FirePro
drivers and software, you can use the Windows®Display Properties dialog to adjust
your video settings and configure multiple monitors.
Proceed to install the software and drivers for your AMD FirePro graphics card.

2.3 Installing Graphics Drivers and Software
To install or remove the drivers and software, you must be logged on as a user with
administrator rights.
Drivers and configuration software, which include the Control Center software
application, are provided to both operate and take advantage of all the features of the
graphics accelerator.
2.3.1 AMD Drivers and Software
Drivers are small but important programs that enable an operating system to
communicate with a piece of hardware, such as a graphics card.
When you install a new graphics card, you must also install the driver and
configuration software the card requires to function properly.
You also need to install (or reinstall) your AMD FirePro drivers when you have
reinstalled or upgraded your operating system or when you download updated
drivers from AMD's Web site: support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx.
Note: When reinstalling drivers, always uninstall any previous drivers that are on
your system, even if they are for the same graphics card. Always start "fresh."
2.3.2 AMD Automatic Application Detection and Configuration
AMD FirePro drivers offer automatic application detection and configuration, which
enables the graphics driver to automatically detect an application when it starts and
configure the graphics driver settings for optimal performance.
This detection feature works with multiple open applications. As you switch between
multiple applications, the graphics settings are always automatically configured for
maximum performance for the particular application currently running.

This chapter provides notices, troubleshooting tips, and customer care, warranty, and
standards-compliance information.
5.1 Workstation Card Troubleshooting
The following troubleshooting tips may help if you experience problems.
More troubleshooting information can be found using the knowledgebase on the AMD
Web site at http://support.amd.com/.
5.1.1 Computer does not boot up properly.
Verify that the installation instructions were properly followed. In particular, if
external power is required, make sure that the external power cable (or cables) is
properly connected.
Check that the card is properly installed in your system and connected to your
monitor.
If you have problems during start-up, restart your computer in Safe Mode.
Check the system configuration utility of your operating system for the interrupt
assignments.
Contact AMD’s Customer Care or your local technical support.
5.1.2 There is no display.
Make sure the card is seated properly in its slot. If external power is required, make
sure that the external power cable (or cables) is properly connected to the card.
Make sure that the monitor cable is securely fastened to the card.
Make sure that the monitor and computer are plugged in and receiving power.
If necessary, disable any built-in graphics capabilities on your motherboard. For more
information, consult your computer’s manual or manufacturer.
Note:
• Some manufacturers do not allow the built-in graphics to be disabled or to
become the secondary display.
• If your system has built-in graphics capabilities, make sure that you uninstall
the associated driver to prevent conflicts with AMD graphics drivers.

Page: 17
Make sure that you selected the appropriate monitor when you installed your
enhanced driver.
Make sure that the display resolution and refresh rate settings you have selected are
supported by the monitor you have connected.
5.1.3 There are screen defects.
Make sure your monitor supports the resolution and horizontal (kHz) and vertical (Hz)
refresh rates as required by the graphics card. Check your current resolution, refresh
rate, and color depth settings in the Settings and Monitor tabs in your Display
Properties dialog.
Caution:
Ensure that both the graphics card and monitor support the resolution and refresh
rates you select. Incompatible resolution/refresh rate selection may result in
monitor damage. Refer to your monitor's documentation for recommended
resolutions and refresh rates.
5.1.4 The screen image is off-center or there are odd colors.
Try adjusting the brightness, sharpness, contrast, and color balance controls of your
monitor.
Try adjusting the centering and positioning controls of your monitor to position the
picture on the screen.
Set the monitor's RGB inputs (and sync switches, if this option is available) to 75 Ohms,
with the sync set to external.
DFP monitor users: Make sure that the DVI plug of your monitor data cable is digital-
only (DVI-D), not integrated analog/digital (DVI-I). Refer to your monitor's
documentation and contact your supplier or the manufacturer of the DFP monitor for
information on how to obtain a suitable data cable plug.
If you need to use DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort adapters other than the ones
included with your graphics card, make sure that you use AMD Eyefinity validated
dongles. For more information, see http://support.amd.com/us/eyefinity/Pages/
eyefinity-dongles.aspx.
5.1.5 The operating system warns that the graphics card isn't properly
configured.
Make sure that the display resolution and refresh rate settings you have selected are
supported by the monitor you have connected.
Check the driver installation and make sure that all software is correctly loaded
corresponding to your operating system and applications.
Reinstall the drivers for your graphics card.

5.1.6 There are bus address or interrupt conflicts.
Make sure that the I/O and memory addresses reserved for the graphics board are
not used by other hardware devices. The integrated on-board VGA controller of your
AMD FirePro card uses the following addresses (hex):
• I/O Address: Standard VGA I/O: 3B0-3DF
• Memory Addresses: Video RAM: A000-BFFF, Video ROM: C000-C7FF
You cannot change the addresses of your AMD FirePro card. In case of an address
conflict, try to modify the I/O address of the add-on card that causes the conflict.
To support the special graphics processor on the AMD FirePro card, the system BIOS
should automatically assign a system interrupt to the slot where the card is installed.
However, there may be problems if your graphics card does not receive an interrupt
or a system interrupt is used for more than one device. In case of problems, check the
system configuration utility of your operating system for the interrupt assignments.
