Windows 7: My graphic card is not being recognized!

I don't think i can restore because i reinstalled my Windows recently, after my card wasn't working. I already tried with another card and still the same problem, I'm thinking that the PCI slot may be faulty or maybe the motherboard is too old for a GT 610?

The card is supposed to be backward compatible with PCIe 2.0, so I wouldn't think that. The pcie slot being bad is possible. If you have another pcie X16 slot, try it. Is it recognized in BIOS? If it is, the motherboard recognizes it, so I wouldn't think it was the slot. Other than that, I'm running out of ideas.

Just out of interest what type of cable are you using to connect to the monitor? HDMI?

Just to rule out the simple stuff, could you try connecting via an HDMI cable?

Great, please carry on following Essenbe's advice though, I'm just trying to rule out something stupid.

the +5V and the +3.3V look good to me, I didn't see the +12V which is more important. Try to get the readings in BIOS as those are the most accurate. ATX Standards is +/- 5% of the rated values, if you want to know. But, it's more important to see what they are under stress. I noticed your CPU temp is 55C. I think that is close to your max, which I think is 62C, although I'm not totally sure about that. Core Temp and Real Temp will tell you what max is. They are both free, but as always, watch out for the junk they try to get you to download with them. Just unselect them. Please monitor your CPU temps for a while. I wouldn't let them get within 10C of the max. Software readings are notoriously wrong.
