Hi dudeinmud,

It sounds like the graphics card you are trying to add is faulty. Are you able to test it in another machine? Are you able to test a known-working graphics card from another machine in your computer?

I've not had a video card before, I bought it from a supermarket a while back so I've been told it might have the pci-e slot disabled in the bios as a factory default, I'm unsure.

The bios is american megatrends by the way.
