Solved My computer doesn't recognize my videocard in a weird way...

Specs: Windows 7
My computer doesn't recognize my Video Card.


Hey guys... So here's the "werid" problem I have right now...

well, I have a GeForce Zotac 560Ti in my PC (atm), used to have a Geforce GTX 260 in there.
So, i connected the 2x6pins in my new 560Ti, plus the HDMI cable, so far, so good...

The f---ed up thing is that, I have an image, I can write this post with said card in said machine but.. My pc doesn't recognize it.. I checked in my BIOS to disable the Onboard Graphics, and did it.
I've uninstalled all my Geforce drivers and downloaded the newest one.. but even after doing all that,my computer still don't recognize the card..., and I really don't understand. I can't change any video settings ... nothing..
.
I mean, the fan is running, I have an Image but my PC doesn't recognize it.
Anyone could help me figure what the hell is going on?
Thanks!

The power supply is not one of the better ones (78% efficient, two 12Volt Rails, many complaints about it on Newegg's site, etc.), but it should be sufficient as long as both 12Volt rails are performing up to specs, especially if the older card still works if you put it back in.

First, download the correct drive again using the links riider supplied, delete the video card in Device Manager to eliminate the old driver and install the new driver, followed by restarting the machine. If that does not help, continue:
Your problem narrows down to three possible issues:
1- Your driver or BIOS setting is not correct.
2- Your power supply is going or not strong enough.
3- The new graphics card is bad.
You will need to carefully eliminate possibilities one at a time. If the old card works correctly when you put it back, the BIOS settings should be fine and the power supply is at least marginally working. If you had access to another power supply, you could test using that. If you have access to another computer with a sufficient power supply, you could see if the card works correctly there.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Seems it has to be a driver issue. Make sure you're using the proper one:

32-bit driver: http://www.nvidia.com/object/win8-w...

64-bit driver: http://www.nvidia.com/object/win8-w...

Here's my PSU: Thermal take tr2 600w

And for the driver issue, I tried everything, Each time I try, it says. (after the "checking for compatibility" That I do not have an Nvidia product installed... Even went in the BIOS check if my PCIE was set to PGE, I did everything...Got the card out, cleaned the copper connections, cleaned the PCIE slot, Yet the PC doesn't recognize it. But i'm using it atm...

And it can't be a PCIE 1 or 2.0 incompatibility since I was using a GTx 260 before using my 560Ti and both were from Zotac. and both are PCIE 2.0...

Actually, the power supply and the Video cards work great on another machine, I even got my bios an update. Plus one for my motherboard. The cards works just fine so does the PSU... and the BIOS settings are okay :S
