You need to provide information about your computer, this includes is it a laptop or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP and if it is provide the model name or series number, motherboard and PSU details would also help others to help you better.
This suggests that the computer is a desktop but the Radeon HD 5400 is used in laptops only is it possibly the HD5450.
First the card would not recognize my monitor so i moved the slot it was in and it started to work
Have you checked the device in device manager for any yellow ! or red Xs as the drivers may need updating, they are available @ http://support.amd.c..._win7-32.aspx#1

Can you download and run Speedfan http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php post a screenshot of the readings with your next reply so that your temps and voltages can be checked.
Did you uninstall the previous drivers before installing the new ones, overlapping drivers can cause various problems, can you edit your OP and change the video card details there to HD5750, this will avoid any possible confusion should someone later rely on your topic for guidance, thank you.
The correct drivers for your card are available @ http://support.amd.c...Download Detail

Can you borrow or do you have a spare PSU that you can swap in so that you can obtain fresh readings from Speedfan and HWMonitor as the readings may also be caused by a faulty MB sensor, see the PSU tolerance details below so that you can see how low the readings are.

See the guidance given by Digerati regarding testing a PSU @ http://www.geekstogo...-a-psu-problem/ and stress testing your video card using Furmark http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/
