    OK, I see one big issue here. The nvidia 10xx series cards [generally] need a uefi type bios to function. Your motherboard is too old to have a uefi; you have a legacy bios. Sometimes a bios update to the latest available bios works and you are able to install/use a 10xx series card. As I said, sometimes. It really is hit and miss. Since this was a high end motherboard in it's day, you have a reasonable chance of the update allowing you to use the card. If you are not running the latest bios, you can give that a try. IF you decide to update the bios, be sure you read and fully understand the flashing procedure. While a bios update is not difficult, an incorrect flash can render your motherboard unbootable ie junk. Asus has crash free bios, however in my experience, that does not work all of the time.

    Note the only way I ever update the bios on an asus board is by using ezflash which is built into the bios. I never update a bios from within windows. Here is a link to the support page for your motherboard;

    You do understand that you are going to have to pull the nvidia card and install a card that does work in order to update the bios [if you are not running the latest bios]

    Yep have a working one right now, I will try your idea, but could this be it since this all worked 2-3 moths ago? I havent started the computer for a long time.

    And there is no chance my graphics card is damaged in some way?

    No, probably not if it worked previously with the 10xx card. If you do not have the latest bios, you might consider the update however do be sure you fully understand the flashing procedure.

    Are you sure the card is fully seated in the slot?

    Yes, fully seated in the slot. It is not uncommon for a video card to not be fully inserted into the slot.
