Maybe you can help..
I bought a new HP and a graphics card to go with it.. Everything was working fine, except that the sound broke up a little when I was playing a game, so I bought a sound card..
After I added the sound card, the graphics card disappeared from the device manager, and has yet to return..
I've tried pulling the sound card, still no vid card, I tried reseating the vid card, to no effect..
I did a system recovery, to no effect..
I ran a hardware diagnostic, and it said the slot was working fine..
I scanned for hardware changes, still nothing..
I put the video card in my fiance's computer and it recognized it, so it's not the card..
I've tried everything I could think of, and HP tried everything they had in their knowledge base, other than admitting that the motherboard may be at fault..
Does anyone here have an recommendations?
