Check that you've inserted the card properly in the slot, remove it and firmly push it back in to the slot to ensure it's seated properly.

It would also be useful if you could try the card in a different PC to establish whether or not the card itself is faulty.

"It was working perfectly but due to some reason i had to remove it"

How about explaining why you removed it? What did you use while it was out...onboard graphics? Did you change BIOS settings?

"after some days when i reinserted it, my pc was not detecting it"

If your PC wasn't detecting it, how is it that you were able to use the PC? Where you getting a display with the monitor cable connected to the card or did you switch back to the onboard?

"i even tried to install new driver"

It's pointless to try to install drivers for a card that's not being detected. I think you found that out. Make sure it's fully seated in it's slot, make sure the monitor cable is connected to the card, not the onboard, & also make sure the BIOS is configured correctly - onboard disabled & PCIe slot set as primary display. The driver you should be installing is version 372.54; it was released about a week ago.

Did you try cleaning the card edge connectors with a soft pencil eraser and inserting it a few time to clear oxide off the sockets? Sometimes an imperceptible amount of oxide can cause issues.

Did you try another slot, if any?

Card could have failed. Not sure which suggestion in #1 your #2 refers to. Did you try the card in another computer?

Switching to the onboard graphics might prove something I guess.

Probably too hopeful but try turning off, removing the power cord then holding the Power Off/On button down for at least 20 seconds to discharge the motherboard components. At odd times it has cured issues where settings have become stuck.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

"what is the connection between not detecting gc and working of pc..."

You can't use a PC if you can't see anything on the screen. Assuming the video card is good, why would you remove a working card & put it in a drawer? What did you use for a video display without the card...onboard video? If that's working OK, why do you want to use the card again?

Please post the make/model of your computer or make/model of your motherboard & processor.
