  1. Hey,
    I have a Zotac GT 610 2GB Synergy Edition graphics card. I have been trying to install my graphics card for quite some time now :/ When I open the installation driver, it says "nvidia graphics driver could not find compatible hardware". I cannot find my graphics card in the device manager. The only graphics card I can find is the inbuilt Intel graphics. Can someone help me install my driver? Thanks!

    Should I uninstall my Intel driver?

    Oh, you posted it here. Great. Disregard my other post then! Make sure it is properly fitted in the PCIe slot.

    These are PCI slots:

    The slot that holds graphics cards is the PCIe 2/3 x16. It isnt always blue.

    What are the rest of your specs? CPU, Motherboard, power supply.

    4gb ram, 32bit operating system. Windows 7.
    now my monitor is not working!! The CPU works. But the green light on the monitor does not come on. Only the orange light is shown.

    Is the monitor plugged into the GT610? Or is it plugged into the motherboard? That is your problem. Look to see where the GPU is on the back of your case. It will be under your motherboard. The graphics card will have a few DVI ports, plug them into the GPU.
