Well, I'm running out of ideas. Hard to diagnose from a forum.

You never did answer how many power connections you card has. Mine has two and it needs both. Could you also let us know what the color and location of the slot you have your card plugged into the mother board.

Try this as a shot in the dark. Take out the add-in card, powerup with the monitor attached to the onboard graphics.
Power off and reinstall the GTX580, attach the monitor to IT, and power up again. Rerun WEI assesment after Windows installs a driver.

Well folks 2 and 2 is not adding up to 4. Their is something missing. Have you changed anything else in your computer besides the new card? Does your new card have two connections for power and are you using both? Still need to know what power supply you have.

I have no way of knowing what you do or do not know. That is why I asked the question.

The fact that he couldn't update the driver makes me think the os has been corrupted where the driver is installed. And he said he updated from vista to win 7 and this problem began. And the card was working before. I think he'd be better off installing Win 7 from a fresh format or try to do repair install to correct the corrupted driver. I think we've ruled out the hardware as a problem but noway to verify since he doesn't have another pc to try the card on.
