In safe mode try rollingback to the standard win driver,,if this does not work i'll say the easy way would be to clear your cmos via the onboard pin.... Let me know after you've done this

Hi xavier, welcome to the forums

Have you made sure that the card is properly seated in the slot? I know it's a silly question but it wouldn't be the first time i've seen it happen today alone

Its a little jumper on your mainboard maybe you should download a manual if you don't know or have yours.
