I recently bought a PNY Verto GeForce 210 card but i cannot install it on my BIOSTAR A740G. The problem i am having is trying to find a setting on the bios to change the display but i thought it is possibly another problem since i cannot see anything as long as i have the video card connected.

When you have the card in is your monitor cable plug into it or did you leave it plug into the on board graphics port?

^^ either that or you have one of the rare mobos that require you to put a jumper in your first pcie slot

/imanaged to find the setting and i installed the drivers for it but when i look at it on the hardware section of my pc properties it just appears as "? video Controller" im going to attempt to re install the drivers but in the meanwhile, do you think the jumper would b the problem at this point?

you mean plugging the video card into the mobo or plugging the vga cable

Both. Believe it or not a common issue is people staying plugged into the mobo port while having the gpu in.

well im sure i connected it properly to the mobo because when i use the driver setup it is recognized there ad nvidia 210. now i do have a question, i had to set the display settings to using my integrated graphics card on the bios so i could isntall the drivers. the current setting is on "igfx/pci/pcie" im guessing this sets the priority of which device to use. should i switch the setting to "pcie/igfx/pci" or "pci/pcie/igfx" or do you think that would have no effect
