Only standard Vga and no GTS240
Hello

I just bought a new computer

It should run smoothly, but what do i see, i only have 16mb's of graphic memory? :o

i bought a GeForce GTS 240 1GB

but in the adaptar screen, it only sais "standard VGA" detected, nothing abouth NVIDIA or GeForce.

I tried to install the latest drivers for the card, but it said it couldn't find any adaptable hardware and i cant find anything about a gfx's card in the BIOS

tnx in advance,
Hello

This implies the Device Manager(?) but the phrase "i bought" does not separate "with the computer" from "to add to the computer". Are you replacing a card or is this the only card that has ever been installed in the system? Knowing that would help in determining possible issues or conflicts. And is there a yellow triang;e with the "VGA adapter" or not?

What is the source of these "latest drivers"? Are they on a viedo card disk, on the computer's OS disk, or from a download?

Is there a page in your BIOS for setting things like startup/bootup video adapter or mode? Or setting whether the video is PCIe?

It is on Windows 7

It is a totally new computer (the Dell Studio XPS 8100) so i haven't ordered any specific parts

about the triangle for the VGA part this screenshot might help

[img]http://img203.imageshack.us/img203/1322/aparaatbeheer.jpg[/img]

For the downloads, i tried the ones from the CD that came with the computer, and since they didn't work, i tried to download from NVIDIA site, where i had to select the graphics card manually, cause if i tried automatichly selecting it came up with saying there isn't any downloadable software because the driver was up to date (but i supsect it only see's the standard VGA one)

i hope this helps
It is on Windows 7
