AMD Fx 8350 Eight Core Processor
EV3A 700 watt bronze power supply
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060
Gigabyte 970A-DS3P motherboard
So here's the situation: The graphics card is not detected in the device manager, so its hardware isn't functioning at all. When running a game, all of the workload goes to the processor. The display is from the card, via hdmi, and it works just fine. I can't see it in the device manager, and I can't install drivers, as it says "compatible hardware cannot be found".
Things I've tried:
-using the "show hidden devices" option in the DM (not there)
-Reseating the card in the same slot and the other PCI slot, which of course didn't damage it, but did nothing
-Trying to download any necessary drivers in case that was the issue (like I said that wasn't working)
I don't know what to do, and at the moment I can't get ahold of the manufacturer, gigabyte. As a disclaimer, I did NOT damage the card myself. I was very careful to simply take it out of the box (brand new) and fit it in without touching any circuitry. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I dropped a lot of cash on this PC and I would love it if it would just work.
