is this card overclocked at all? have you overclocked it personally?


most likely, you should start from scratch with the installation.


like the poster above stated... are you sure it's seated correctly in the correct #1 position slot? are there more than one pci-e x16 slots on the board? you may wanna consult the motherboard manual.


anyway, if not, it's probably a driver problem... perhaps just uninstall the current driver and reboot...


let windows install the initial driver it finds, and then go to the nvidia website and download the current driver for your operating system (you're not using drivers off of a install disk are you? if so, you should go to the nvidia website and get the most current driver... could be the issue as well)...


then install the newest driver and reboot again, and you should be good to go.


also, please note that if there was some sort of internal problem, windows may have shut down the pci-e slot that the card may be installed in, in order to prevent damage to the system (had this not too long ago on a pci slot for a sound card...simply pulled the card out and put it back in...pc off and unplugged of course...turned the pc back on and things worked fine...however, if there is a serious problem with the system and not just an overclocking issue or other mishap, then this could cause serious damage).
