Nvidia Graphics Card Not Detected! Help!


Recommended Posts

Hello.  Can someone help?


A few weeks ago while playing FARCRY 3 my laptop started getting the BSOD.  It became more frequent so I decided to do a clean install of Windows 7 Premium 64bit.  After installing windows and the associated Alienware drivers disc my computer could not detect my discreet Nvidia GPU in the bios or device manager.  The drivers will not install since no hardware detected and I even opened the laptop case and tried to re-seat the card after watching a youtube video on how to do that so my card could be detected, no luck there.  Dell support in Mexico and India have not been able to help.  Is my graphics card fried?  The system diagnostics says everything else is ok and even the CPU and GPU fans are running fine.  Help me please.
