New Graphics card wont install.

Just got a new graphics card. It wont appear on device manager atall. Fan on the gpu is running fine.

I thouhg its the pcie slot is dead. But i plugged a really old graphics card into the slot and the fan works on that and that is powered by the pcie slot. So it must be working?

Make sure you uninstall the old graphics card drivers before installing the new one. Turn off computer, install new card, install new drivers, reboot, should work.

In your system specs it says you have 2 Samsung Monitors. Are you trying to install with one or both connected ?

Update:

Things that may be the issue.

Just updated my BIOS.
Just installed a new psu. from a stock 300W to antec sg 850W
old Gfx card blew 2 capacitors, could this have damaged it?

Any ideas?
