hi guys.

some strange problem occuring at the moment.

i have this pc with following specs

FSP 500watts solid psu, not a no-name one
ASUS H61MK motherboard (single x16 lane pci-e slot)
intel i5-3450S cpu (1155 socket)
8gb of ADATA memory
samsung pro 850 128gb ssd
and brand new wd blue 1TB drive

the thing is... for 2 years it was running on internal graphics (cpu)
today i bought msi gtx 950 gpu.

made a fresh new win7 64bit OS.

and this card is not being detected on system. i plug it through DVI connect, when i boot it up there is no signs of display, simple black "no signal". only fans spinning.

so, i am plugging on motherboard onboard graphics, it shows signal.

things i tried, clearing cmos, bios update, disabling onboards on bios, tried nvidia drivers (just showing no device detected), i cleaned out the slot, there is no signs of dirt
its not showing even unknown device icon on device manager. so, is my pci-e slot dead?

I CAN ASSURE, card is working flawlessly, as i just tried it on my i7 + 32gb setup and another i7 + 16gb setup. so its not a DOA gpu.

please help!

BIOS settings. Make sure it uses PCIe graphics first. Dunno where that setting is in your BIOS though.

EDIT: Ah you tried disabling onboard. Did you have the PCIe card unplugged when you changed that setting? I recently installed a GPU in my parents old AM3+ system and I had to unplug the GPU, go into BIOS and disable internal GPU, then install the card.

ok, i just figured out, when i choose a priority "Pcie" @ bios, then next when it reboots, it puts back to "Auto" mode.

it is suppose to spin fans when its not connected to pcie-power wire?

Try updating bios and chipset drivers to the latest version and see if that works.

The fans will be getting power through the PCIe slot.
Have you tried leaving your monitor connected to onboard video, placing the Graphics card in the slot with power connected and booting up, it should recognise new hardware and ask for drivers, after the drivers are installed you can shut down, connect the video to the card and reboot.

Not wanting to point out the mistake in your reading Ability @jboydgolfer
Did you read the first post o_O:eek:

thanks for your concern..but It doesnt mention him trying a SECOND slot, so point out what you will,

"things i tried, clearing cmos, bios update, disabling onboards on bios, tried nvidia drivers (just showing no device detected), i cleaned out the slot, there is no signs of dirt
its not showing even unknown device icon on device manager. so, is my pci-e slot dead?"

what do you feel i missed? if your referencing the mention of a Single X16 slot, i saw that...but I only have a single x16, which is why i mentioned MY suggestion, since i Still have another x8 which solved my problem. i have since googled the OP's board, and it apparently has only one PCIe slot, but my reading of the 1st post was fine. i just didnt assume he meant only a single slot ..since i was trying to help out. i guess i could have googled the board b4 posting, but i didnt.
