Windows is not responsible for installing your motherboard drivers, you need to do this, you should have a drivers disk that came with your motherboard.

 

The GPU drivers are secondary for now as you need to get the motherboard drivers installed and starting with the Intel chipset drivers first.

i'm browsing the thr mobo cd and not seen nothing about chipset driver

 

could the i386 folder be the chipset driver? but there is not exe file in the folder,

Tip

If using a computer and not a mobile phone, please avoid adding multiple posts while waiting for us to reply to your last, edit your last post to include anything that you wish to add, this will ensure nothing gets overlooked which can sometimes happen if a thread has more than one page. 

 

There is also no need to quote every reply btw, it only makes for more reading and doesn't help any.

 

The first driver to install is the Intel Management Engine driver ver:11.7.0.1045.

Still not detecting the card so restart the computer to access the BIOS and make sure that the PCI-E slot is set as the Primary graphics solution, see screenshot so you know what you are looking for.

 

There is also an option in the BIOS to check for driver updates, run that at some point as well.

Not looking promising atm, is the GTX 1080 out of the box new or if used is it known to be in 100% working order.

 

Let the Nvidea driver auto detect scan your computer, see info here

Shut down and disconnect the power cord then pull the CMOS battery for ten minutes or so and pressing the chassis power on button as of the process, this will clear any possible bad settings in the BIOS, see attachment.

 

Once done reassemble and test.

 

If clearing the CMOS does not help it is definitely a hardware issue. have you ever had an add on video card working in this motherboard.

For now will wait and see if anything changes after clearing the CMOS.

 

You never told us how old that PSU is.

Before returning anything you need to establish which item is bad.

 

Do you know anyone with a computer who can either test your card in their computer or borrow you a GPU to test in yours, alternatively ask a local tech or tech store to test the GPU.

 

Question, that model of PSU does not have an 8 pin PCI-E connector for an add on video card, how have you connected the PSU to the GPU as in what connector/s.
