Decided to get a really cheap card just to avoid on-board graphics.

But my PC did not find the card, and obviously, couldn't install the driver. Placed in the only PCI-e slot possible, and connected to the monitor with VGA cable.

Already went to CMOS setup, tried to set Initial Display to PCI-Express... nothing changed.

Any thoughts on this one? It's a old and crappy PC, but i'm still finishing a new build, so i'll use it a little longer.

Thanks in advance! :)


EDIT: Code 12. Not enough free resources....

does device manager see the card or no? if it does, what drivers are you trying to install?

Nope, device manager did not find anything. Recommended driver was 314.07.

Edited 1st post, found something important.

first 2 thoughts, either the card is faulty or the PCI express slot is faulty.

There's something about IRQ, saw this after consulting Uncle Google.

System information says everything is OK.

Remembered there's a option on CMOS setup that mentions IRQ....

agree with dark here. If device manager isn't even picking it up, there is def a fault with the card or the slot. Do you have another card to try in the pci-e slot to see if it is the slot that is faulty?Might be a good test?

Already verified that, tested card in another motherboard. PCIe slot is dead.


Thank God i'm finishing my build. Damned be Gigabyte if my UD5H ever do such a thing.
