  1. Turn it off. Plug monitor into the graphics card (not the motherboard), turn it back on, download and install drivers from nvidia.com

    I don't think it's a driver issue as graphics cards should be detected even before it's drivers are installed (drivers won't install anyway if device isn't already detected by the system).

    More likely to be an installation problem:

    1) Auxiliary 8-pin power cable not connected to card.

    2) Card not located properly in slot.

    3) Not configured in BIOS settings (ie BIOS is still set to use integrated graphics).
