    Default Z68 Extreme 4 will not seem to recognize Radeon 6870 HD

    I have a ASRock Z86 Extreme4 motherboard, that won't seem to recognize my card! (Radeon 6870 HD)

    I've tried different monitors, different ports. Nothing. It won't even come up in my device manager. It's not showing at all. The 6pin connectors are attached, and the fans are spinning... I don't know what to do.

    No, I haven't. Would that really make a difference?

    You do have PCI-E enabled in the BIOS don't you? - worth checking if you were previously using the iGPU on your CPU.

    I had the same problem.

    My Asrock z68 couldent identify my 4850 in the upper slot but could when i seated it in the lower slot
    Something was wrong with the mounting of the CPU probobly some pin that hadenīt got contact!

    Moving the card to a different slot fixed it! thanks to all who suggested it.

    Do you suggest I realign the processor?

    you mean re-seat the cpu? you want to disturb it as little as possible imo so if its working then leave alone

    must be bios detection bug with the first pci-e slot? idk

    I bought two ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 Boards for two
    workstation builds i'm doing at work and neither board can displayvideo to the
    monitor whether in bios or windows. The onboard through the i7 works great but
    the minute i switch to the pcie card then i just get black screen. The computer
    has no errors and is booting up just can't see anything. lol Windows 7 device
    manager sees the card and identifies it correctly and says it's working properly
    but i can't use it. Can this be a bios issue or is the board just bad. I'm
    working with ASRock to figure it out but all i get from ASRock is the
    standard......not reading my description and giving me the stand list.
