Motherboard won't detect video card

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a Foxconn A74MX-K and a EVGA 256GB 8600GT and it won't detect the video card. I was reinstalling Windows and took out the video card maybe I can't remember it was 3 months ago. I try to turn off the onboard but it just beeps at me as a video error. I touched the video card on the back without touching metal I thought that was the problem but I works in another computer. Could that mess up the PCI-E slot? The onboard is crappy and I don't want to be stuck with it any suggestions?

Then it's not your motherboard, it's your graphics card. If you don't want a headache then simply return the card and get a new one.

You are aware that the 8600gt that you have requires external power, correct? If you didn't have the pci-e 6 pin cable plugged in the card, it will not work. I don't believe that the 7300LE requires an external power supply, so this could be why u had no issues with it.

The 8600GT does not need external power it does not even have a molex connector on it.

How is the video card bad when it works in another computer?

EDIT: Ok I put in a 7300LE and it worked so I put the 8600GT back in and it worked so IDK whatever...
