Please help me with my desktop Graphics!!!

before I was installing my brand new GTS250 my PC's rating was 3.5 in system properties. But then I installed my New Card and when I was done with the setup I restated my PC and refreshed my System rating coz it was not available. Then when that was done my rating was 1.0, and the thing that was keeping my system rating so low was my desktop performance for windows Aero. Please what can I install is there a driver missing or what??? Please help me

I have attach an picture to make it more understandably.

If you dont have it, download GPU-Z GPU-Z Video card GPU Information Utility and make sure everything on your card shows the correct specs.

Make sure the card is fully seated correctly. If it isnt or if it easy to remove, take it out and make sure the slot is clean and make sure it is put back in and seated completely.

If this was an upgrade to the computer and there was previously no card in there, then the system might still be using the integrated graphics processor (IGP). Check in the Device manager to make sure there are no "yellow-warning-triangles". Also, you can check the BIOS to see if it is using your chipset or the Graphics card.


Hope these suggestions help.

Hi.

Can you post a Screen Shot of your Device Manager, sounds like you need to install the driver for it which can be found here - NVIDIA DRIVERS 197.13 WHQL

I get that your score is low, not like that matters.

How does it perform?
