ok so it is inserted correctly, did so twice.
the light is on, the fan is spinnning but when i go into the bios its no where to be seen. is there a specific place i need to look for it, specific tab??
and the only two things i can think of is that it is connected to the power supply straight, but i did get a cable with it that had a 6 pin for the graphics card and on the other end it was to be connected into the powersupply anyways,here is a pic of the cable
maybe i need to connect it directly to the motherboard somehow???
it is not connected to the internet yet so i have not been able to download the most recent drivers but would that fix the problem?
i have this asus software that lets you decide between high performance, power saving and another setting and it says vga card not detected.
would i need to change a setting in the bios to let it boot or recognise the card??
i can boot windows 7 64 bit no problem it works fine its just i cant play anything if this card isnt recognised /posted or whatever.
It must have an integrated GPU, otherwise he wouldn't be able to get into windows with the card inserted, as he says. If he posts the motherboard model, we'll at least be able to direct him to the right area in BIOS to change.
Still trying to find the setting in your BIOS, but you're looking for something like:
"Initiate Graphic Adapter" which should be set to "PEG" (pci express graphics) / "PCI"
thanks very much for the amount of effort your putting in to helping me, its my first build and it all ran fantastic first boot but i just realised that the graphics card wasnt posting, thanks again for you help it means so much. this is my spec anyway

i also get two short beeps and the boot up, accordin to the manual it means either vga detected, no keyboard detected or quick boot disabled, its the first time i got two short beeps, and i just hit the clear cmos button there. what is the cmos do u know?
apparently i just read because this is a discussion and not questions dominant or something there is no best answer button in the bottom corner where i have buttons =/ but just take confidence that you helped someone with a problem and their going to speak good about you and you are a great rep of what this forum is like =)
