9800gt on G41M-P28

So I just set up my new build, but for some odd reason my motherboard is only using my "Standard VGA adapter" and not my video card.

Motherboard- http://www.msi.com/product/mb/G41M-P28.html#/?div=BIOS

Video card- http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-9800gt/specifications


What's even stranger is that I have my monitor plugged into the 9800's DVI and it works, but it still says Standard VGA adapter"

I checked the bios and it is running PCI-e as the priority and I have all the power plugs plugged in.

Anyone have any idea why it won't work?

    Did you download and install Nvidia display drivers? If not, windows (most likely XP in your case) recognizes it as a generic display adapter.
  2. Running vista for now but that worked.

    First thing I did was try and get the adapters but the auto-find hardware for drivers did not work on nvidia's site so I ended up searching manually and it worked just fine. THANKS!
