I recently bought a GTX560 Ti for my fairly new Dell Stuido XPS 7100 in order to play SC2 with higher graphics capability. I removed the old graphics card which was an ATI HD5450 and installed the new one. Then I disabled the Standard VGA Graphics Adapter in the device manager so I could install the new one. I tried running the most recent driver (275.33-desktop-win7-winvista-64bit-english-whql (1).exe) but it says the nvidia graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware. I also deleted all my ATI stuff but before the VGA adapter showed up in device manager it said I had an ATI 4200 or something. Thats gone now so when I go into dxdiag it says my card is "n/a", but still when I run the nvidia driver it cant find compatible graphics hardware....Specs posted below:

for hdmi you need to hook up sound also to card

The desktop has a 460W power supply and i would doubt it has a 2x 6pin power plug. Actually did you hook up the power to it, if there was any 6pin power plug?
