I need some help. I’ve put together my system, but no matter what I try I can’t get my graphics card to work. Here’s my setup:
Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3
Intel Core i7-2700K
Corsair Vengeance Performance Red 16GB (2x8gb)
Thermaltake Power Supply 240-Pin 850Watts
Finally, the Graphics Card: Zotac GeForce GTX 660 TI
I’ve tried every configuration of the cables (power and monitor) but can’t get Windows to find the new hardware. I can’t get the drivers because the NVIDIA Graphics Driver installer finds no compatible hardware.

Anyone have any idea what I could be doing wrong? What steps would you take to get it working? I can provide pictures of the various setups, if necessary.

Well I'm assuming that when you say it has no compatible hardware that the motherboard graphics work. Go into your bios and make sure that the GPU is the primary card.

You can also try to re-seat your card.

I'm guessing it's a Windows update issue.

I've seen this error when trying to install older drivers on a new card - (Don't ask)... It could be that the drivers you are trying to install might not support the 660ti yet.

Nvidia's 306.02 drivers have been certified for the 660ti, I suggest you try them when you're done trying Deemo13's advice.
