I have connected my new
nvidia 520 2gb
graphics card.....
but when i try to see the info abt my card in gpu-z
it shows a standard vga display
not the name of my card
and i am not able to install the latest drivers i downloaded from their official site
what might be the problem?

My config is

AMD Phenom II X2 550 3.10Ghz
Gigabyte GA-MA74GMT-S2
2GB Transcend RAM
1.8 TB HDD
22" Samsung LCD Monitor
***NVIDIA 520 2GB***

Yes, the drivers are the issue. Why exactly can't you install the drivers?

the thing is
i bought a new graphics card
put it in my pci slot and started my pc
i get hte display my windows starts up but the resolution is of 4:3 aspect ration
but my monitor has 16:9 aspect ration
so i thought it could be because i did not install then drivers
but when i tried searching for the drivers from the nvidia site automatically
it said i have the latest dirvers
then i checked it in gpu-z
the name should have been of my card but instead it is
"standard vga graphics adapter"

Don't search automatically.

Do the manual search, select your operating system, download the drivers. Or install them from the disk that came with your card.
