Hi.
i have a motherboard that i recently updated the bios on. i went from version f4, to f10. and now my graphics card won't detect inside windows, or
at the bios screen. the motherboard is a b360m-hd3, from gigabyte.the device is not detected in windows device manager,
nor is there any display from the graphics card.


1. i've reseated the graphics card after a thorough cleaning.
2. i've disconnected the power from the top of the graphics card to test power to the pci slot. it's powering up okay.
3. i've tried to revert the bios, and cannot rollback. says the older update is outdated.
4. i have tried my brother's graphics card, which is a 1060 GTX 6gb AORUS version... same problem.
5. i've tried changing the graphics options in bios. setting the primary graphics card to pci-slot 1. didn't work.
6. i tried putting the graphics card is the x4 PCI slot, still same issue.
7. i changed the power cable for the graphics card.
8. i can't install the NVIDIA drivers, because it's saying it can't find compatible hardware.
9. i used DDU, and couldn't find a way to install the drivers any way.



my specs are
i5 8600K processor
1060 GTX 6 Gb G1 Gaming, gigabyte.
B360M-hd3, gigabyte.
1x250gb ssd 860 EVO, samsung.
2x1Tb Western Digital Blue
1xTb Seagate Barracuda.
8 Gb Corsair RAM, 2400 Mhz.

i just got back from work and tried what you told me, and no, no signal yet.
i'm going to try rolling back the BIOS by the power + method.
i'll keep posting progress here.

 
make sure you reload the intel chipset drivers is one of them is missing or dmaaged the pci chipset wont work. also check that you download the right bios for the right mb. some mb may have more then one rev out there.

Finally! it turned out that my PCI USB extension card was causing some sort of conflict with the graphics card.
i took out the PCI usb extension card and boom, it worked.

i bought an extension card for more usb ports, but it's useless to me anyways because it's a via chipset, and doesn't get to run the oculus very well..... i mean, you win some you lose some.

anyways, thanks for the help peeps.

i know right? it's odd how i had it installed for the longest time, and the bios update would cause them to conflict with each other.

anyhoo, the problem having been solved, i'm a happy guy. i was actually gonna go buy a new mobo or RMA this one, but apparently didn't need to.....
thanks.:D
