I have just finish my computer build. I have the P8Z68-V Pro MB and a Power Color 6870HD DDR5 1GB video card in. I do not know why, but it is not detecting the video card at all. I went into the device manager>display adapter and it only shows "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter". I dont know what to do. My Bios is really fancy so I am not sure how to enable or look for the card through that.
How can it detect your video card if you have not even installed the drivers for the video card?
Did you think your motherboard was psychic?
I installed the drivers for my card, that is the first thing I did and still nothing. And also itzdanielp, I am able to see the device manager through the onboard video card not my Radeon. Everytime I plug the Dvi cable into the Radeon card I get a black screen. The fans spin on my Radeon and everything but its not being detected. Also even if I didnt install the drivers yet wouldnt I be able to see that there is a device in the PCI_E 1 slot on my bois? There is nothing there. I have switched it to the PCI_E 2 slot and still nothing.
I consulted my MB Manual and the options "I think" I have are to go into system agent configuration>Initiate Graphic Adapter and the options for that are: PCIE/PCI or iGPU or PCI/iGPU or PCI/PCIE. Then below that drop down menu there is iGPU Memory, Render Standy, iGPU Multi-Moniter.
I have same problem whit my Asus P8Z68-V Pro. I have tried 1000 solutions on internet. Last choise I think will do it is: Change my "power supply". (as I tough all along)
Its only a 620W power supply. And my Asus GTX 560 1G card minimum Req is 500W, so think thats it.
But whats strange is:
Card worked at start, first times I restarded my computer. Then it suddenly wont work anymore.
Total blackness from I start my computer. Only integrated intel card works.
And I install another, even more new drivers from Asus.com. Wont work now either.
I restart and switch slots inside computer etc.
And suddenly it works during Bios and Dos mode. And becomes blackness when windows log in screen arrives.
So it works now and then, but mostly not. So I need to buy new Power Supply =) Got to be it. Check that out my friend.
And yes, both 6pin cable is in. Card gets 2 green lights from 2 orange lights when I do. So that works. And both fans works to.
Bios is PCIe/ ..... etc...all is correct exept Power Supply.
And now I formated PC, and installed Windows 7 Ultimate. Still blackness.
But now I cant even install graphic drivers anymore after I done windows 7 install. Had Vista before. So thats a new problem How to fix that, I dont know?? And yes, I downloaded new drivers for windows 7 32bit Said it cannot find any graphic card to support or something. Even its working and plugged in. Perhaps it will be auto detect when I get new Power Supply
