I just purchased a AMD Radeon R7 240 graphics card for my ASUS H81M-PLUS motherboard.
Windows 8 64-bit will not recognize the card and therefore I can not install any drivers or software for the new graphics card. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as I already returned the graphics card to the store once thinking that it may of been DOA.

Did you disable onboard graphics before trying?

Return it again and buy a proper gaming card, assuming you plan to game.

Hey bud i think it is a problem with an older motherboard with PCI 1 and trying to install a newer card PCI X 3. What you have to do is a custom install off the drivers and not a express install. if that dont work may have to get a PCI express 2.0 card and still do a express install. The same ploblem happened to me and it was saying error 10 standard video graphics (VGA) where the only drivers it would install. i think it may have been a compatability issue with the motherboard

Come on....that's kind of a mean uncalled for, schoolboy answer to a simple question.
To the original poster... All you need to do is go to the AMD site and they have a downloadable .exe that automates the detection of your driver and the download and installation of the driver you need and you should have no problems.
