GPU detection

DanielPC
Go to solution Solved by DanielPC,

I was able to remove my basement compartment for my gpu since I had time and it turned out the gpu power cables were slightly pulled out.

 

No problem, glad to help! :)

I don't think my gpu is being detected because on the nividia website when I run the detection for driver updates it says it dosn't detect any nividia products and when I try to fold on my gpu it gives this error message.  I've tried to move it into a different slot on the motherboard but to seemingly no effect.  The lights on the gpu do light up thought.  I am running a msi gtx 970 twin frozrV.  Thanks- Daniel

Yes.

 

Okay, is the card new? Or rather was the GPU working and it stopped?

The card is quite new.  I had just built my system 2 weekends ago.  I'm not sure whether my gpu has been working because my cpu had built in graphics and I haven't used my computer much because I've been busy therefore I'm not sure whether it was working before.

Do the GPU fans still run? If not, it is a faulty cable.

Roses are red, violets are blue. I enjoy foruming on LinusTechTips too!

The gpu fans aren't running but the lights on the gpu are on and the gpu has a feature where the fans will only turn on under load.

Go into your BIOS and see if the GPU is detected then report back. Also double check them cables.

I'll try to do that tonight but it might be tomorrow.  Thanks for the advice so far.
