    No it is not. The fans on the graphics card are running though.

    Stupid question but needs to be asked, have you connected the power cable from the PSU to the card?

    In that case boot into BIOS and see if it's showing up there. If not, remove the card and reseat it then reboot and see if Windows detects it.

    Also, what size PSU do you have?

    Use driverview,an excellent Nir Sofer tool, which will list all the drivers installed,manufacturer,location etc. and then decide which to remove and replace.It is perhaps better to stay with the drivers Win7 jnstalls and ignore update advice from Nvidea.

    You need the Nvidia drivers in my opinion for better performance. Please use this link to fill in more detailed info on your specs.

    System Info - See Your System Specs

    Answering the question on post number 8 on your PSU is important so we can try and help you.
