I recently bought a new video card Nvidia Geforce 210 and installed it in my PC and flipped it on and it was recognized. i then went into device manager and under display adapters i hit uninstall on the video card because the drivers were faulty. After doing this i restarted the PC and now it will not even recognize the card i had in there or any other PCI express card.
Ive made sure i have it enabled in BIOS and i know the slot is getting power becuase the fan is working.
Congrats on the new GPU, but it seems you have a couple of issues here. First, you don't enable a stand alone GPU in your BIOS (you might enable the motherboard's integrated video adapter though - or- you can tell the motherboard which video adapter to use first). So, you may have inadvertently turned on your integrated GPU and it may be conflicting with your new GPU.
That being said, check your BIOS. Then see if you can boot into safe mode. If successful, you should then be able to reinstall your drivers (just download directly from nvidia.com).
If that fails, come on back and we'll try something else. Good luck!
I will try this as soon as i have access. Is it possible too by hitting uninstall device in device manager that something in the registry might be messed up to where any PCI express card will not be recognized?
So, you can access the BIOS, but can't get Windows to display anything, right?
Power everything down, then remove the new GPU from the system. Connect your monitor to the on-board video and restart the system. Download driversweeper (google it) and remove all Nvidia drivers. Shutdown, re-install new GPU, boot, and install new drivers.
The Video card worked when it was first put in and windows booted up. i then installed the driver to it from nvidia.com but it was failing and installed incorrectly. i then went into device manager and went under displays then right clicked on the geforce 210 card and hit uninstall where i was prompted "are you sure".
After doing this the PC restarted but wouldn't work off the pci express card so i had to use the onboard video until i could try to load drivers for it. after cleaning all the old drivers i rebooted and then i shut the PC down to put the card in. once i turned on the PC it wouldn't even acknowledge it at all even plug and play wasn't showing it.
i tried another pci express card, my old 6800xt i use for backup and it wouldn't show up either. i do not know where to go from here. also its a PC used to work from home call center so i do not want to have to reinstall windows.
Are you using the most current BIOS (R01.C2)? Also, did you run driversweeper? Last, if you install the 210 into the PCI-E slot and connect your monitor to it, can you see the BIOS screen or anything before the system attempts to boot into Windows?
