Graphics card not being recognized.

I just bought a new PC last month, and I have upgraded it's power supply and video card. The Galaxy GTX 460 768 mb. It won't show up in device manager, but the fan is runs smoothly. I've got a 900 watt PSU and everything is plugged in correctly

I also have another card, the fan runs but the card isn't recognized by my PC =\

Can you check that you plugged the monitor cable into your new GTX 460 and not the motherboard onboard graphics socket. Plus check that the 2 x 6 pin pci-e power cables from the PSU is attached to the card.

Thanks for your reply
Everything is connected fine, the problem is the card won't show up in device manager. When I set my BIOS to PEG none of my monitors work. When its IGD/PEG My cable in the onboard works but not the one in my graphics card. I can't install drivers because I get the "Can't find compatible hardware"

I suppose I should have stated that first eh?

I suggest an experiment:

Uninstall the drivers for your onboard graphics.

Power down the PC.

Install your new GTX460. Connect the monitor to it.

Start up.

Any luck?
