"No suitable driver" with GTS250

I've just bought my new graphics card and physically installed it into my computer. The problem is there are "No suitable drivers".



My GTS 250 is in fact supported, according to this list




Even the downloaded driver from the NVIDIA (190.62) website isn't installing, and I just get this error:




My specs are as follows:

AMD 780G motherboard
2GB DDR2 RAM
AMD Phenom 9150e x4 (1.8GHz~)
(The 250GTS is 1GB SLI, I think.)
I currently have my monitor plugged into my onboard graphics as, obviously, as the card isn't installed.

A problem that I think there is, is that the gfx card is bottlenecking a processor.

I've tried older drivers, they didn't work.

Connecting the monitor to the card just gives a blank screen like any graphics card. I doesn't show in device manager, because it's not installed.

Any help is appreciated.

The problem is, you have the video connected to your onboard video. Go into your BIOS and dissable the onboard video so that you can use the dedicated video card. Then reboot the machine with your monitor connected to the GTS250. If you don't get a picture turn it off and open the side of your case. Make sure that the card is properly seated in your PCI-E slot and that you have properly connected the PCI-E power adapter to the back of the card. If you didn't connect that adapter properly the card will not work.

If the card is completely dead, or my PCIe slot is broken, what will happen then? My onboard will be disabled and I won't have a picture.

Right, I did it, nothing of my worries happened. But the card's still not working.

I've checked the card physically, and it took that long to get in I daren't take it out again. :D

Well, either your PSU isn't enough to run it or you simply have a dead card which you need to return ASAP.

Did you plug the 6 pin power connector to the graphics card?

Maybe you need to uninstall the onboard graphic drivers?

Problem solved, after taking another look at it, it seems there is 2 6-pin power sockets. I had it plugged into the wrong one.

They were identical slots and I had no idea that would be it.

Thanks for everything though. :)
