Nvidia geforce gt 430 is gone?

i dunno wtf has happened but it can no longer find my Nvidia geforce gt 430 graphics card and shows a Radeon 3000 in its place on cpuid. im not stupid but i definatly have 100% a Nvidia geforce gt 430...

so how the hell can i sort this out? the fan on the graphics card is still runnin so it has power running to it but my computer cant pick it up at all, when i plug my monitor into the graphics card i just get the "no signal" box come up on my screen. i can still use my computer but the graphics card is not working at all when i open my nvidia control panel it tell me that it cant detect any nvidia devices even tho the card is firmly in the slot inside my computer.

please help this is extremely frustrating if its broken i just want to know what part needs to be replaced thanks in advance

edit: i have removed the card and put it back, i also tried re installing the drivers but the disc tells me that the drivers are not need for the radeon (which i know) so it only detects the radeon not the nvidia graphics card.

Sanction welcome to the Seven Forums.

Start with going into the bios and making sure that is it set to GFXO first,

like above.

P.S. You are connected to the card and not the connector on the motherboard?
