    Go to Control Panel > Device Manager and check if any yellow exclamation icons are beside the display adapter.

    Power down the PC and re-insert the graphics card snugly. Let's check to see if it is loose. Windows should detect the card and show it in device manager - it is abnormal for it not to.
