    Default Asrock Z68 Pro3 PCI-E

    Hello, I just bought an Asrock Z68 Pro3 a couple of days ago and decided to try out a Palit 9600 GSO with it. However, the motherboard doesn't seem to be able to see it. I plugged both of my monitors into the 9600 but both have blank displays. It might sound stupid, but am I missing something? The card is working just fine on my older computer. I just really need to know so I can return the motherboard if the PCI-E slot is broken. Thank you.

    Are you setting pci-e #1 or #2 as your first display? Or disabling the onboard graphics?

    I did set PCI-Express as the priority on boot at the BIOS and did set the shared memory to "Auto" which I believe should disable the onboard graphics.

    Does the mb work with built in graphics? Look through each BIOS page and make sure that igpu is disabled,could try loading optimized defaults in the BIOS,it will reset all BIOS settings

    Thank you for the prompt response. I've looked into every page and there's only one page for the graphics options (I believe it's in North Bridge config page). There's no option to disable the IGP but you can set the shared memory. The manual says I have to set it to Auto and so that when I insert a PCI-E card, the IGP would be disabled. Otherwise, I should set it to a specific capacity to allow me to use Surround display. I've tried doing both but the results are the same. No display on the NVIDIA card. I've tried installing ForceWare to see if Windows can see the card, but it's a no go meaning the PCI-E can't just be found. :/

    EDIT: Btw, I'm using a Core i5 2500K so it's using the Intel HD2000 IGP.

    It could be a BIOS issue,I've seen lots have problems with ATI graphic cards not working,you need to pm Emily with your problem and email addy and she might send you a beta BIOS to try

    Well, I did just that and hope that everything would be okay. I hope it's just a BIOS issue and not a defective motherboard.

    Anyone having problems like mine? Maybe we can solve it faster than with Asrock's support. :D

    I don't have that motherboard, but I did add a video card to a z68 extreme4 last night. I had a blank screen initially and had to set the BIOS to PCI-E instead of Auto.
