Graphics Card Not Recognized by PCI Express Slot

Hello, I'm a novice who just built his first pc. There is a problem with my graphics card; it is not showing up in the bios browser screen, nor is it appearing under my devices. I would like to properly install the card.

I went to nvidia's website and downloaded the new drivers, but I get an error message when I run the program (I'm not sure how the drivers help if it's not detecting it in the first place). The video card fan is running and I wore an anti-static bracelet during assembly.

This is my hardware:

ASRock H77M
EVGA GTX 650 Ti
GSkill Ripjaws 2 x 8 GB DDR3 1600
Corsair 600 CX 600

I should also mention disc that came with the video card is not working at all. However, the other software discs that came with my components are working perfectly fine. Does anyone know what I can do? Sorry if this is a stupid question, I know very little about computers.

Thank you.

In device manager have you tried uninstalling the default video drivers in the display adapters tab? Try that and attempt to run the drivers. Also have you ensured that you have your pci-e connector installed into the video card?

I disabled the default video driver and received the same error message as before. The pci-e connector is connected to the graphics card.

UPDATE - I plugged the card into the outer pci e slot and got the same problem. I would assume this means my video card does not work at call?

Do you have any other video card you could try in your own system? Or else do you have a friends computer you could try the video card in? That would narrow down whether its a system problem or a problem with the card.

Do you have an option in the bios to disable onboard GPU and use discrete video card or some thing like that? Or does the video card not show up at all in bios ie it is invisible as if it is never there?
