Depends on what operating system you are running and whether or not one has adequate power to supply the card.

Maybe some system specs would help a bit: OS and other hardware (MoBo, CPU, PSU etc.) would be a good start.

Thanks and hopefully it is just a driver issue or a BIOS setting.

Please post the make and model of this computer.


If it is a custom build post the make and model of the motherboard.


That graphics card needs at least a 500W PSU.
