    If everything is as it is supposed to be then it is either lack of power or a faulty card.
  2. It should be plug and play to get your monitor to recognize the card- have you checked your motherboard's manual to ensure you don't need to use a particular slot first?

    If you have another computer you can try to insert the card into, or another card you can try on that rig, it would be very helpful to determine if it's a bad card.
