Windows 7: Gigabyte GTX 670 problem

Gigabyte GTX 670 problem

Before installing my OS i could not get video on my screen. After taking the card out I could load bios and the screen was fine. Now after loading up Windows 7, I plug in my GTX 670 and there is no video whatsoever. Is there something I need to do in BIOS? My motherboard is a ga-z77x-ud5h, with 16 GB ram and i7 3770k. Only running 1 monitor. Should I try to plug the monitor into the card itself?

Yes. Motherboards are starting to come more and more with auto detecting graphic output settings.

Yes, best bet is to utilize the DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort on the card itself. Also, do you have a driver for that particular card? If not, I would go and get one from Nvidia's website before you fiddle around with it. There are some rare cases where you have to go into the BIOS and switch it from the iGPU to dedicated card, but let's try it this way first.

Go to Nvidia's website and download the appropriate driver for your card and operating system.
Install the card and plug your monitor directly into a port on the card
If that works, install the driver you downloaded for the card

Fixed by just plugging DVI-D into the card!
