I just installed new card in pci e16 slot of new motherboard. Neither Add new hardware or device manager detect it. I cannot try it in old computer as there is no pcie slot. Help.

Hi, only two things I can think of - remove and refit card, just to make sure of perfect fit - or, possibly faulty card, get a replacement.

I would guess you are 'seeing' the results via your on board graphics, just a thought maybe onboard graphics needs to be disabled in BIOS?

Using onboard graphics.

Tried that twice
, replacement I think

Surely card would still be detected. But I"ll try your suggestion

I tried disabling onboard graphics, no joy.
Will have to arrange for replacement.

Yes, I guess that is your best option.

Good luck.

jay.p has a good point - have you tried the card in both PCIe slots, the only difference being that PCIe x1 is a lot slower than PCIe x16.

PCIe x16 graphics card will not fit PCIe x1 slot.
I did try the DVI graghics card which came with the motherboard in PCIe x16 slot and it was detected . So I think slot OK graphics card duff.
Thanks to all for your input.

Graphics card was from Ebuyer and received replacement(which works) on thursday. Have used Ebuyer before but this was the first time I had to return any item. Was impressed by their system.
