To start off, I'm not very good with computer but, I got a build on the forum this month and bought the parts. Everything went well it's up and running but the Graphics card drivers fail to install.

It says Essential Drivers: and under it is install drivers, so i click it and it makes a folder and continues to do a compatibility test and boom failed NVIDIA installer can't continue.

The graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware.

Also it says NVIDIA graphics driver version 275.33

Need help asap

Thank you

Select PEG as first display! I belief that you can leave the IGP enabled but make sure you are connected to the card with the monitor. Any issues try disabling the IGP.

No all you have to do is reset your BIOS/cmos to defaults to get the IGP back! Your TV is set for HDMI in?

Unplug the PC remove the motherboard battery for a few moments and it will reset BIOS.
When you are done with that hook your monitor to the card and select PEG again, HDMI might not work until you got the drivers installed.
Make sure you connected power from the PSU to the card as well.

The person that helped me build it did say about clear cmos or something and putting a screwdriver across the 2 leads would reset but im not sure if thats it

There is a little flat battery on the motherboard and there is a reset cmos jumper either way it will reset it to defaults, look up in your motherboard manual!

i would check that you have the 6 pin power plugged into the video card. the card wont turn on if your missing power. if the card is working the fan of the gpu should be spinning. i would also check that the card is seated.

You need to have the card connected with the 6pin PCIe power from your PSU!

Most likely your problem was not having the power hooked up, it is the most common mistake that happens with new cards.

Check your display settings and see if there are scaling options settings for digital panel in nvidia control panel.
