Graphics card Isn't being detected!!!

Hi so as the title says my graphics card wont be detected. :( The problem is I've had my R9 280X for 5 months now and its worked fine but now it wont work. I can use my internal graphics fine but the gpu cant be found.

When i try to install the drivers it says installed but errors occured and it installs all drivers but my graphics drivers. So i uninstalled everything but now i have no video driver and it wont install

Extra info:
I cant find my graphics card in Hardware list on AMD Control center

My specs:
i5 4670K
asus asrock z87
8gb RAM
WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE 64BIT
R9 280X VGA

  1. Wow, this is strange. What did you do just before this occurred?
    Because from the information you've given, I can only deduce the possibility of a dead card!

    Well lately I've had problems when i extend the screen in control panel the monitor says no signal found and 2 weeks ago my graphics card driver dissapeared and i had to start windows in low resolution.

    How does the dead graphics card thing work? as my fans do work, does that justify anything? and also on my mobo i can map out my motherboard and see whats connected and according to that my mobo my graphics card slots are empty :(
  3. The fan has nothing to do with the card working(in a way) -- as long as the fan is getting power it'll spin.
    Try reseating your GPU.

    How can i reset my Graphics card?
  5. Re-seat it.
    Take it out of its slot and put it back in.
    You could also try resetting your CMOS if you have a motherboard with a jumper(read the manual).
    If your motherboard does not have a jumper, take out the silver CMOS battery and reinsert it.
