Graphics Card not detected

A few weeks ago I had to buy a new graphics card, due to my old one breaking on me. I bought the Asus Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 and plugged it in with no issues, I used the CD that it came with and installed the drivers from that, but the graphics card isnt showing up in my device manager. I've tried to download the latest drivers online but it just kept saying that the drievrs couldn't be downloaded as the hardware required for them wasn't detected. Also the graphics card doesn't have any way for me to plug any power cables into it, I later discovered that this graphics card doesnt require any additional power, ive also tried to uninstall my intergrated graphics drivers to see if that worked, no luck there. Does any know what the problem is and what i need to do? Thanks

If the GPU isn;t being detected then you likely shouldn't be able to get any output from it. You are plugging in your monitor cables to the new gpu and not the onboard gpu, right?

GTX 650Ti / 650:
Minimum of a 400 Watt power supply
(Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 20 amps)
Supplementary Power Connectors - An available 6 pin PCI-E power connector

There are Green Edition models, one of the very few GTX 650 graphics card models that lack 6-pin PCIe power connectors, and rely entirely on the PCIe bus for power.

My PSU is 500w if that helps

Ah then all you have to do is disable the onboard GPU and/or set the primary GPU to the PCI-E slot in the BIOS.

That "should" fix it.

If it doesnt show in device manager though surely turning off onboard GPU would just cause a blank screen

Not to sure about that. If it does end up going awry you can just reset your bios. Might be a reset CMOS pin or might just need to pull out the battery. I recommend the reset cmos switch if you have one. If not, no big deal.

Do you have another pc to test if the cards faulty?
