OK, so after upgrading GPU to gtx 960 (gigabyte 4gb) i cant get a display.
Previously, I had a gt 730 which ran fine
I have tried the following:
Updating BIOS (now fully updated from biostar website)
Uninstalled gt 730 drivers using ddu uninstaller
Fully reinstalled windows 10 (to be sure no gt 730 stuff remained)
Attempted to install drivers from nvidia website whilst gpu was in (using the integrated graphics) but got error message "The graphics driver could not find any compatible hardware"
Searched for display drivers in device manager but couldn't find any other than Intel HD graphics (no drivers in "other" folder)
Finally, I tested the new GPU in my brothers newly built computer (he is using same power supply model) and IT WORKED (without any driver installs). This threw me because I thought the GPU was faulty. He was using a z97d3h gigabyte motherboard/i3 4160 processor.
I am certain it was seated correctly.
So could it be the biostar motherboard? it had pcie 3.0 and intel chipset h61.
Is there a BIOS setting I should change?
