Can't find GPU in BIOS, not showing up in dxdiag

http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Ritinish/saved/3v9s

I have UEFI BIOS and i cant find anything about my GPU(R9 270) there. Same goes with dxdiag it says chiptype AMD ATOMBIOS. GPU-Z did display my R9 270 core speed, memory and etc, except temperatures.
I received this PC today and it was prebuild as a free service by buying all parts from them.

Do I have to enable it in BIOS? How?

This is giving me hell of a headache...:??:

  1. Turn off the UEFI BIOS, and enable the Legacy BIOS, see what happens.

    Else you may need to update the MB BIOS to latest version. Do it on your own risk cause improper BIOS update can brick the MB. Read the instructions carefully from vendors site before you do anything about BIOS update.

    How do I update the BIOS? It just downloaded 1 CAP file...
  3. Did you disable the UEFI BIOS ?

    You can turn-off the FAST BOOT option on BIOS also. Then see if the GPU is being detected by PC ! If so then there is no need to update BIOS. First try those steps then think of BIOS update.

    For BIOS update look at this page : Under BIOS Utilities : http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/M5A97_R20/#support

    I don't understand how to do that, to disable UEFI and enable Legacy BIOS. I went through all settings but it just shows only options for CPU or Memory and on the mainscreen it shows only temps for CPU and motherboard.

    Now only BIOS is the one that doesn't display my GPU. Rest of programs like dxdiag, gpu-z and even Steam tells that I have R9 2xx Series, which is correct. R9 270 to be precise.

    So nothing to worry about. The GPU is working fine. Cheers.
