(sorry, i didn't intend for this to be a 'here let me google that for you' thread, but i didn't expect to find photos of my exact gpu in that high of a resolution.)
that's a relief, but unfortunately the card is still going completely undetected by my system. it's in the other pci-e slot now. fans are going, as before, but it doesn't show up in the windows device manager or system info, the included software does nothing when i click the "driver" tab, and nvidia's driver application tells me it can't find any compatible hardware. i have pci-e selected in my bios as my primary vga (other options are onboard and pci). and obviously i'm not getting a signal from either dvi port.
Try this, with your computer turned off. Hook up the GTX 560 and the vga/hdmi/dvi cable which ever cable you are using for your monitor hooked into the video card. Now you want to take the cmos battery out for about 30 sec. to reset the cmos and place back the battery into the motherboard. Make sure the psu power cable is unplugged when your doing this also. Plug the psu power cable back in. Now turn on your computer and your motherboard should now recognize your video card.
Having the same problem building new computer with Intel DZ68ZV, i7 2600, 16 g corsair memory, tx 850 psu, gtx 560 ti. mobo won't gives 2 beeps, pause, 2 beeps, indicating no video card. Put the card into another machine and it works fine... put in an ATX 4850 and it boots fine... put in an atx 450 and it has the same problem not recognizing the video card. Doesn't make sense to me why the older card would work fine but the two newer ones are not detected.
I have checked and 3x checked seating and power connections, reset the bios several times and tried using the second PCIe slot ... still no joy. Not finding any help at either the intel or nVidia websites.
I thought of that after posting, there is an update that says it corrects an error for "high memory video cards"... not worded very well, but I'm guessing it is referring to loading the board into the high memory blocks and not a video card with a lot of memory. Sounds like it might work, so I downloaded it and will give it a try. I still get nervous updating BIOS though, the new chips aren't removable so if it gets corrupted there is no fix I can do.
I'll post the results.
Well I updated the BIOS to the latest and greatest using the older video card. The BIOS now reads the latest version (2076) but the 560ti still won't boot. Reset the CMOS with the jumpers and tried it, no joy... removed the battery to reset it that way... still won't boot. Just beeps. I'm all out of ideas.
I'm thinking it is the board, since the card works fine in my older ASUS board, and only the older video card will work in the Intel board, either there is some incompatibility with the two newer cards, or there is some flaw in the board itself. I just can't think of anyway to isolate the problem other than what I have done. All parts were new-in-box also, nothing was used or refurbished.
Update: Even though I had flashed the BIOS once using the windows version, and even though it said it was successful and even read the correct version in the CMOS, it somehow got reset to the older version (2060). I flashed it again using the windows version, verified it had taken, but when I tried the new card it beeped again. Rebooted with the old card, and it was back to the old BIOS again.
Flashed the BIOS using the built in (F7) function and the .bio file and this time it took. The board now works with all three cards.
