hardware problem


#1
hello,



I've got a problem with my computer

this are the specs:

motherboard: MSI B85-G41 Gaming

Power supply: 650 watt

OS: Windows 8

ram: 12gb

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670 @3.40 @3.40 GHz

Type of bits: x64






now is my problem,


everytime i place my video card, my computer doesnt want to start up, it doesnt even gets past the BIOS mode..


the strange thing is: when i remove it, and change a setting in the bios (becauze able to get into there when removed card) and i place the card back, it starts,

but when i get into my windows desktop screen, and i go to device management

it seems not to recoqnize my video card... it only show's me a card called: Microsoft Basic Display-adapter,


when i press to search for the newest software it says that are no new updates...



when i enter my bios with the settings changed so my card can stay in the motherboard, i get a overview of my motherboard and it DOES say that my nvidia card is installed on the motherboard (placed ).


but when i go to windows, it seems to dissapere....

when i change the settings in the bios to standard, and then try to run my computer with the card installed in my motherboard,


it seems not to even want to start my whole system.... *black screen*





can anyone help me please?.... been stuck with this for 3 days now, and no one knows an answer...

Once you get the GPU installed and your system recognizes it, you have to download the driver from Nvida or off the DVD that came with the GPU.

Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

You also don't mention what make/model Nvidia GPU you have...it's not listed in your provided specs.
