My card not being recognized by device manager GeForce 9800 GT not recognized by system
Hey guys, this is my first time posting on here. Looks like a neat forum! Anyway, I bought a GeForce 9800 GT card recently, and assembled it into my pc. Before I installed it, I went to device manager and disabled/uninstalled the onboard ATI Radeon X1200 card. I used the DVI-to-VGA adapter and got a No Signal screen on my monitor. Then I used the VGA adapter on the back of the PC, which worked.

When I run the NVidia drivers CD and try to install drivers, it says " The Graphics Adapter installed in the system is not compatible with the current set of drivers. I did some research went to the BIOS and made the primary display be PCI e, that didnt work either, the card does not show up in Device manager. Here is my system specs. Basically my computer is not recognizing the card.

Looking forward to getting this running! I am not very experienced in computers, but I'm very interested!

Is there a setting in BIOS to disable the onboard video? Disabling it in windows doesn't do anything before it boots. Also, have you tried physically removing and replacing the card? Maybe it's just not seated properly. Also, you do have the PCIe power connector hooked up, right?

Thanks for your reply first of all! I physically removed and replaced the card two times, I am positive that isn't the issue. The card doesnt have a PCIe power connector jack, it has a SPDF jack however, which has something to do with the sound (i believe?) . That doesnt supply power does it? Anyway I tried hooking that up, but that did not help. In the BIOS I dont have an option to disable onboard video, I have an option to select the ''primary display'' type, and that is set to PCIe.

I have a question that may sound dumb, but if I had a problem with the PCIe slot not working right, would the graphics card turn on? The fan is running and looks pretty smooth. Also, how can i test to see it isnt the mobo that is the issue? I dont have another computer to install the card on, all my other computers take AGP

Found this quote in Newegg reviews, don't know if it will help.

"Also, video out defaults to DVI. Make sure you have a DVI monitor available to you so you can change the bios settings if you plan to use VGA."

If it is not showing up in the Device Manager, it is not a software issue. Have you tried updating the BIOS of your motherboard to the latest version?

Yes I have updated BIOS to the latest version.

Is there a way I can test my PCIe slot without inserting another card?
