Does it have a PCIe 6pin power connector? is it connected?

What is the brand and model of your PSU?

Sounds like a possible bad card if the card doesn't have a 6 pin power connector. Is this the card? PNY Reason I say this is if the fan won't spin up then your not getting any power to your card. If you have dual PCI-e slots try the other one. If the same thing then I'd get a hold of where you purchased it for a RMA or exchange. JMO. Fabe

If your other card works then I would start an RMA contact the retalier if newegg you can still problably just do an exchamnge or maybe some others. Otherwise I would contact PNY and start a claim. Fabe

Memory of the graphics card has nothing to do with system memory, sounds like
you have a bum card.

Why did you say: "well it seems that the card has DDR2 memory and its not compatable with my current motherboard"

I suspect a BIOS update might be the solution.

Get the application found here: CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting
Once you run that:
Tell us the motherboard brand, specific model and current bios version.

Hopefully that is the problem, and it's easy one to update.

I'm on my third GT220. The first one was like yours, not detected and the fan didn't spin. The replacement worked but the fan was noisy and occasionally didn't spin. Third times a charm I guess as the last one has worked fine for almost 6 months now. Mine were made by BFG. As mentioned the type of RAM on the video card has no bearing on compatibility with your motherboard. The memory controller is built into the video card and only the video card has access to that onboard memory. Does your current power supply meet the minimum requirements for that video card?

When I built my system a few months ago I had a Celeron G540 and I thought the Intel HD Graphics 1000 was pretty decent. When the i3-2105 was $25 off at Newegg I bought it because it has Intel HD Graphics 3000 and I thought it'd be better. The CPU is much better but the graphics seems to be the...
