Windows 7: Where did my graphics card go?!

Where did my graphics card go?!

Hey everyone
I am transferring my Nvidia GeForce 9600GT from a WinXP computer to a new Studio 540 desktop with Win 7. The device manager cannot 'see' my video card on the new computer! All that shows up under "Display Adapter" is the Intel G45/G43 express chipset. How can I get my Dell Studio 540 desktop to see the card?! Thank you for any help! ~kyle

Are you sure its connected properly? I assume its a PCI-e card. You'll need to download drivers for it here: Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

...oops....wasn't connected properly
I had to remove the old power cable from the card and connect it to the existing power cable in the Studio 540. Sometimes it does help to point out the obvious! Thanks
