How to get this computer to recognize a new GPU

Spoom182Spoom182 Registered User
I am helping my friend install a new graphics card in his computer. It's working fine, but it won't register that there's a new card in the computer, so we can't install drivers and stuff. Also, he can't get the resolution the way he likes. The card in question is a Geforce 9800 GT, if that helps. Also his "p" key is broken so you have to press ctrl+v every time to write a p, and it sucks.

    I probably would've bought a new keyboard before a new graphics card.

    What OS are you using? What does it say under Device Manager and Display Adapter?

    Does his motherboard have onboard video? Might need to disable that in BIOS to detect the new card.

    If you play a game and then are able to spend pages debating with someone on the actions of a faction within that game you probably just played a pretty sweet game.
