Hey guys. Recently, I upgraded my GPU to a Geforce GTX 1060. However, multiple things have happened and a solution evades me. First, my Device Manager doesn't show the GPU at all. Second, Nvidia drivers always fail, saying "Nvidia installer failed" no matter what I do. Also, I do not see any method of switching to this new GPU in the BIOS settings. However, when I scan my PC for my GPU on the Nvidia website, the GTX 1060 pops up. My monitor is plugged into the GPU directly and works fine. Even the Motherboard map shows that a Nvidia PCIE is installed. It's like the GPU is installed, and can be used, but it's like my PC just doesn't use it for it's actual purpose. Help please? Thanks.

What is the make and model of this computer?

 

What version of Windows are you running?

 

Did this GPU come with a CD with the drivers you will need?  If it did, did you install the drivers?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I built this computer myself. 

OS: Windows 8.1 x64

CPU: Intel Core i5-6500
Motherboard: MSI 7972
Ram: 8 gigs
PSU: EVGA 500 B1

 

And no, the card didn't come with a CD. Even when I try to install the drivers from the Nvidia website, the download always fails for no apparent reason.
