computer not recognizing video card

Specs: Windows 7, 2600K. 8gigabytes
I have a intel dz68db and a ati 5750. Pci-x 16 slot is unpopulated according to bios. I called intel and they said there are reports of issues with these motherboards and ati video cards and geforce video cards. Thats leaves many options doesnt it!. The only advice they gave me was bios update, which I had already done before calling. They then suggested updating the firmware on the videocard. I am asking how I would go about that. Im going to assume it is through 3rd party software as I didnt see anything on the amd website about firmware updates.. Yes the connector is plugged in the graphic card and fan is running, and a 750w corsair psw is more then enough for what I'm running. I will say that intel onbard graphics have gotten better over the years.

Nope, AMD IGP have gotten better over the years.

U can't update video card firmware with blank screen, u need video card working.
Using onboard graphics enter BIOS and set initial display to PCIe x16 save settings and try the video card. Do u have older video card u can try? Are u sure hd 5750 is working? Did u connect 6 pin pcie(75w) cable to the video card?

Yes the power is connected (75 watt) as I mentioned in my first post. I have already tried changing bios settings to pci-e. I know I cannot flash it with a blank screen I have another computer. Yes it works as I tried it in the other computer and tried a geforce gt220 in this one and it worked. Eg. The last time I used onboard video was on a laptop with a gma 300, which is why I said it has gotten better.
