  1. What do you mean it's not detected.......how would you install your drivers without video?
  2. You need to go into your system's BIOS and set your primary card to PCI-E (sometimes called PEG), then save and shut down. Then install the video card and connect the monitor to the card. Power it up and you should be booting from the card at that point.
  3. Obviously the card IS detected or he wouldn't be able to see anything on the screen.........he needs to clarify what the issue is.

    You cannot boot from a video card by the way.
  4. i can see things as my monitor is connected to the pc not the graphics card atm

    Now who is making pointless and argumentative posts trying to belittle someone? It is likely that mavroxur is referring to the difference between the PC initialising the discrete graphic card or the onboard VGA as the first display device.
  6. i can't find the option to change the primary card to pcie

    What motherboard do you have?
  8. ASUS P7H55-M PRO LGA 1156 Intel H55 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  9. Chapter 3-23 of the user manual tells you where the option is in BIOS.
