asrock z68 pro3 gen3 won't recognize 9600GT

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just recently built a new system which is now my sig rig. It's a 2500k, an asrock pro3 gen3, 8GB DDR3 1600, and a PCP&C silencer mkIII 500w power supply.

I don't play games at all so my original thought was to just use the built in Intel 3000 IGP, but I decided I wanted to try out my old 9600GT and see if I liked it any better. When I put the 9600GT in the computer it's fan spins at full speed, but nothing shows up on the screen. If I plug the monitor into the onboard it works, but windows doesn't recognize the 9600GT is there. I have tried the 9600GT in another system, and it works fine. I have also tried an old 8400GT I have lying around in the Z68 and that works fine, but for some reason the two won't work with each other... I tried setting the primary graphics adapter to PCI express in the bios and that made no difference. Any ideas?

So the 9600gt doesn't work in the new board but the 8400gt does ?

But the 9600gt works in another board and the 8400gt works in both ?

Seems software related to because all pci-e is backwards compatible. Tried to google a similar situation but beyond picky slots or software I can't find a reason.
