    GPU is ignored by computer.


    I have a AMD XFX HD 6870 and my computer is ignoring it, running off my integrated graphics instead.

    What ports are your monitors connected to?

    I can't imagine how you'd get anything from the onboard graphics if your monitors are connected only to the discrete 6870 card.

    By "being ignored", do you mean that it's not working?

    If the monitor is connected to the 6870, do you see a display before the machine boots into Windows? If so, that probably means that the 6870 isn't broken.

    One guess: your graphics drivers could have been changed by Windows Update. (That assumes that you haven't disabled that. You can't turn off Windows Update altogether, but you can forbid driver updates.)

    If I plug my monitor into the GPU, the monitor says "No Signal".
    If I plug it into the motherboard, (On-board graphics) I have an output.
    And the 6870 gives no output at all.

    That sounds like pretty dead graphic card if monitor is not registering it. Before you chuck it try few things. Re-seat the card in the PCIe slot and/or try it in another slot. Check the power connector from PSU to card.
