I just got an asus p8z68-v pro/gen3 with an i7 2700k and an asus HD6950 DCII 2GB
I can only get image from the onboard video (Intel graphics controller). The ATI card cannot even be detected by Windows 7 64bit and Lucid Virtu gives error message No Discrete GPU found (even with multi-monitor enabled in the EFI bios).
Power supply is a corsair GS600. Red led on 6950 is off. I cannot do tests with other hardware at the moment.

Please (GOD!!!!) help me.

Probably stupid question ; did you plug in the power cables ?
November 15, 2011 3:15:08 PM

yes otherwise red led on the card would be on

I would really love to know what the answer to this problem is.
I have bought the same parts and have the same issue.
How frustrating is this???

Did you install the drivers for the motherboard? First do that then plug the card in and then everything should be working.

Asus says it is compatibility problem with vga and mobo (ffs). :fou: 

We must wait for bios or vga firmware update (ffs). :fou:

Same issue here with a 2500k, same board, and a HIS 6950.

Any chance you could C+P Asus's exact words, as I'm still "troubleshooting" with them?

Dear customer,

Please try to wait the new version of BIOS of the motherboard or a new version of firmware of the VGA. The problem is caused from the incompatibility of the vga card.

wow... of all the motherboards and GPU combinations to fail has to be the ones we purchased. lol

I have the exact same problem, but my pc won't boot up to windows with both the PCI-e connectors on. Take them off, and I boot to Windows fine.

I'm probably going to RMA the thing and get a 560 ti.

Sadly I've been troubleshooting this since October and have already RMA'd both board and GPU with the retailer. So I'm now out of pocket to the tune of the £150 I paid for the GPU.

I couldn't get my Sapphire HD 4670 to work either. I should point out I have the standard P8Z68-V Pro, not the gen3.

I also have asus p8z68-v pro/gen3 and asus hd6950 Direct CU2 and experienced the same problem, it's not recognize by the BIOS. I had the VGA light led on the MB. I fixed the problem by setting "primary display" to IGFX in BIOS "Graphics Configuration". At least it works on bios v. 3202 and 3402.

The thing is, the dedicated graphic card (HD 6950) doesn't get initalized until windows 7 welcome screen. It s not a big deal for me As I used 2 displays. One on the IGFX (MB) DVI port and one on HD6950 DVI port, so BIOS and windows logo are displayed on the monitor connected to the MB.

But, I set in windows that the monitor on the HD6950 DVI port is the primary display and everything work fine, games use the HD6950 3d accelartion.

Hope it helps...
