Default AMD FX-670K Quad Core + MSI A88X-G45 on-board video issue

Hi all,

I bought a cpu off a HWC member and it arrived today.

From i read and understand it is a AMD FX-670K, it is supposed to be a A10 APU made for HP (it was removed from a HP machine. Anyway i installed it today onto a MSI A88X-g45 and i cannot get it to display video from the onboard VGA or DVI. It only works when i install a video card.

Any ideas?

How can i check if it indeed has a GPU on-board?

Here is a CPU-Z screen shot.(sorry for the shitty cell phone pic)



edit: even though HP's specifications sheet said it is a A10 w/igpu, i have come to the conclusion its just an regular FX chip.

I don't know how you can find out honestly. If its coming up labelled as an FX it would lead me to believe there isn't any integrated (disabled), but you never really know with a chip that is OEM and unique. The only computers I can find online with that CPU all have a dedicated graphics card as well.

so some guys at hardocp are saying it might be one of those FX chips with the dedicated GPU disabled, weird thing is the PDF says AMD Radeon HD 8670D Graphics but also says it has a AMD Radeon R7 240 (2 GB DDR3 dedicated);

Is the bios updated on the motherboard? Maybe it doesn't know what to do with the procs ident.

According to that, there is no mention of an FX 670K under supported processor.

This could very well be a unique processor made just for HP's own PCs and only their BIOS can recognize both the CPU and GPU together.

I even checked the manual, there should be an option to use "IGD" (integrated graphics display), but it only sees the PCI-E graphics ("PEG") thus why it's greyed out.

I'm sorry that's the case with this processor.

thats just my guess.
the above MAY be the case :/
