My Graphics Card is no longer being detected

PC Specs:
Dell Inspiron 580 (64 bit)
Intel Core I5 650@3.2GHz
8GB RAM
GTX 750 TI 2GB


So I unplugged everything from my computer so I could move it to a new area. After I had set everything up in the new area I booted up my PC. I noticed the monitor switched to VGA rather than DVI which the Graphics card is plugged into. When i logged in my computer it was running off of Intel Graphics. I have a GTX 750 TI and this has never happened before. The Graphics card was working fine before i unplugged everything. The card doesn't seem to be reconized even though the card is clearly working inside the PC. I've made sure all cords were plugged in and even switched to HDMI but nothing fixed it. I've only had the card for 2 years and it has worked flawlessly up until now. I also tried taking out the graphics card,dusting it with a can of air then put it back in, but still nothing.

  1. Try uninstalling your graphics card using DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller). then install only your gtx 750 ti driver. maybe this can help

    I don't think this will work as the installer wont be able to find my graphics card. It needs to read my card before installing them.

    I don't have another desktop to test that.

    What did u mean " the monitor switched to VGA rather than DVI". Do you have wires connected to both VGA and DVI?

    Does it show in your device manager with a small yellow icon beside it? I would also check the windows event log to see what went wrong. Some drivers give you the option to repair or uninstall the driver. Try that as well. If it is showing up in your device manager, simply right click, click properties and go to the driver tab. Uninstall it and your resolution should drop automatically. Install the new driver and see if that works.

  6. Hey double check if you have connected the cord from your display screen to the right port that is the one on the graphic card. It seems to be that you have connected the cord to the mother board which makes it run the pc on built in graphics.
