If it's not showing in the Control Panel it is unlikely to be a driver issue (yet LOL). The system doesn't know that the card has been inserted, so this must be put right first.
It could be a faulty card but try the following suggestions first (in the order given):-

Clean the card edge connectors with a pencil eraser (even new ones can play up).
Then insert and remove the card a few times to clear any oxide off the socket itself.
Finally, ensure that the card is firmly pressed home.

If that doesn't help, check in BIOS to see if the card is enabled. How you get to BIOS varies with motherboards but often it is F2 or Del key during bootup. If you watch the screen as you are booting it will tell you which key to use (it usually refers to it as Setup). Your motherboard manual will help you find the settings, if not see if you can find one to download. If you accidentally change the wrong thing, back out without saving then have another go.

Please come back and let us know how you got on.
