Asus Essence STX won't detect

I am having trouble getting my Asus essence STX to be recognised by windows.

I go to install the drivers and it says "please plug-in Asus essence STX"

The card is currently in the bottom pci-e x8 slot on my Gigabyte-Z68-UD7-B3

My GFX card currently takes up all of the other pci-e slots so i can't use them.

I have tried 3 different 4pin molex power cables from my PSU and none of them work.
tried the Asus official drivers and the Uni ones.

Currently trying http://www.alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Xonar_EEPROM... to see if this works.

Ran EEPROM and it could not even find the card. Tried disabaling onboard audio and that still does not work.

Will try taking it out and putting it back in again.

[FIXED]

Managed to fix it, the problem was that the backIO plate was to low down so that the card never fitted in the PCI-e properly

had to bend it so the card could sit in.

First, make SURE that it is plugged in. (I do this all the time, thinking its plugged in and its not)
Second, what OS are you using?
Third, never use 3rd party drivers... Whats your OS, Ill direct you to appropriate drivers.

The Uni drivers are a little more stable then the official ones; both are based off the drivers C-Media puts out anyway, with a few .ini tweaks.
