Question GPU isnt being detected


Jun 21, 2015
Got a Strix GTX 980 ti from a mate because he wasn't able to get it to display anything. Plugged it into my brand new build all completely new parts expect the gpu and also had the same problem. I found out it isnt detected in device manager or NVIDIA control panel.

I dont have integrated graphics im using a gt 710 in the bottom slot for troubleshooting.
New Windows 10 install
Latest drivers are installed including GPU and chipset drivers
I have the latest bios
Iv looked for settings to play around with in the bios but cant seem to find much other than changing pcie gen although iv never used gigabyte motherboards before.
Looked for any hidden devices in device manager but found nothing relevant
I ran this command bcdedit /set pciexpress forcedisable
Tried with a different monitor
Tried hdmi, dvi and dp
Im also running the pc plugged into a wall socket not through a power board

Not sure what to try next so suggestions would be great.
