My friend just upgraded his computer and gave me his old case, motherboard, and CPU. I had a running computer already, but the processor was a nice upgrade for me so I have swapped all my old parts into the new computer. Since doing so, my GPU is not detected by the BIOS or Device Manager.

I updated the BIOS. I bought a new power supply. Bought a new SSD and put a fresh copy of Windows 10 on it. I am currently only using just that drive until I can get this to work.

We tested to see if the pci-e slot worked by putting his old AMD R9 into it. It displayed and was detected normally. So the slot is ok.

I rebuilt my old computer and used my Nvidia GTX 970 in it. It works and displays just fine. So my card is fine.

I used CCCleaner and DDU.

I've reset the CMOS multiple times, reset the BIOS multiple times, attempted booting with integrated graphics turned off. That being off only makes the computer beep, noting that there's no display.

I've checked all my connections multiple times, no damage, nothing unplugged or not seated well, and I know my monitor and HDMI cable is in working condition.

So far all I've been able to do is boot the computer using the integrated graphics.

Specs:

Motherboard: Intel DH67CL
Processor: Intel i7 2600k
PSU: EVGA GQ 750w
GPU: Nvidia EVGA GTX 970
SSD: SanDisk 240gb
RAM: 16gb Cosair Vengence

The PC I've upgraded from had a ASUS motherboard and a AMD FX-6300. 550w Antec PSU.

Im running out of ideas after 3 days of struggling with this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

what version of windows 10 is it? nvidia drivers will give an error like "gpu not detected" or "this version of windows is not compatible" if windows 10 is an older release.  pre 1607.

 

i had this issue only to find out I needed to take a windows update to fix the problem,  i had been avoiding the creators update with a passion.  but that's what it took

before nvidia would recognize the gpu id.

As of now I can't even install the Nvidia drivers due to the fact the bios isn't even reading the card installed. When I go to install the drivers it states that there is no detected Nvidia hardware and stops the installation

Bought a new (used) motherboard on Ebay today. Should be here on Wednesday. Worth a shot I suppose. If anything it has a USB 3.0 header and more accessible SATA ports.   ASRock Z77 Extreme 4
