Hardware Installation
This chapter details how to install the AMD Radeon HD 6990 graphics card in your
system.
Installation Overview
The installation of the card has slightly different procedures depending on whether
you are replacing an existing card or installing a graphics card in a PC for the first time.
This section briefly describes the high-level steps for both cases.
Replacing an Existing Card
If you are replacing an existing graphics card, you need to:
1. Start the computer and then uninstall the old graphics driver.
2. Turn off the computer and then remove the old card.
3. Install the new card and then connect the monitor.
4. Start the computer and then install the new drivers and software.
5. Restart the computer.
Installing the First Card for this PC
If this is the first graphics card for this PC, you need to:
1. With the computer off, install the new card and then connect the monitor.
2. Start the computer and then install the new drivers and software.
3. Restart the computer.
Configuring Dual-BIOS Support
The AMD Radeon HD 6990 graphics card supports dual-BIOS capabilities. It contains a
switch that lets you choose between the factory default BIOS (BIOS1) and a BIOS (BIOS2)
that unlocks higher clock speeds and better performance, with additional power
requirements.

6 Hardware Installation
Caution:
Do not use the BIOS2 setting unless you are familiar with overclocking and are using
high-quality system components to ensure maximum system stability. If you
encounter issues while using the BIOS2 setting, return the graphics card to the
BIOS1 setting, as your system may not be properly equipped to handle the higher
clock speeds and power consumption.
The following procedure describes how to switch between BIOS settings using the
dual-BIOS switch on your graphics card.
1. Locate the yellow caution sticker adjacent to the AMD CrossFireX™ connectors
on your graphics card. This sticker covers the dual-BIOS switch and must be
removed to configure the switch.
Before proceeding any further, thoroughly review the documentation for your
graphics card and make sure that your computer meets all minimum system
requirements.
2. Remove the sticker and set the switch to the desired setting:
➭
➭
Position 1—High-performance BIOS (BIOS2).
Position 2 (shipping position)—Factory default BIOS (BIOS1).
Your graphics card is now ready to be installed.
Installing the Graphics Card
1. Turn off the 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 the computer's case.
Note: If necessary, consult the computer 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 the
computer's case to avoid damaging them.
4. Unscrew or unfasten and remove any existing graphics card from the computer,
if necessary.

5. Locate the appropriate bus slot and, if necessary, remove the corresponding
metal backplate cover(s). Make sure all internal cables are clear of the slot.
Note: If you cannot find a bus slot to match the card, you need a graphics card
with the correct bus to match the motherboard.
6. Align the graphics card with the slot and press it in firmly until the card is fully
seated.
7. If your card requires supplementary power and must be connected directly to
the power supply, locate the appropriate power connector cable(s) from the
power supply and connect it (or them) to the graphics card's supplementary
power connector(s).
Note: If applicable, before installing a card that requires a supplementary
power connection, make sure your existing power supply has such a
connection available.
