Nvidia Geforce 9500 GT not recognized

Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium
Hi. I recently bought a Nvidia Geforce 9500 GT. When I ran the driver software, it said that no Nvidia devices were detected. I made sure in BIOS that my primary display adapter was PCI-E. I looked in devices and I saw nothing indicating my card was recognized. (Was looking and saw my onboard ATI adapter, but nothing else)

Is it possible that the card is dead, or that I installed it incorrectly?

I've been searching for a while, but can't find anyone with my same problems. Help would be greatly appreciated.

If you boot with your monitor attached to the 9500GT, do you get any display? If not, then there has to be a fault with the card. It should at least act like a simple VGA card and display the BIOS menus. Other than that, there's really nothing to go wrong; no external power connectors on this card and it is a very standard display that Windows 7 should recognize out of the box. You are sure that it is seated firmly in the PCI-E slot?

If the card does display Windows, but only in VGA mode, then go to the Nvidia web site and ask it to detect your card and download the appropriate driver.
