Default Re: even newer to the game gigabyte gtx680

you REALLY need to start using period.

make sure everything is plugged in properly.
make sure you are using the latest driver from Nvidias homepage.
you have a Z68 platform, so it is able you use the internal GPU in the CPU.
so make sure you are not using the inbuilt VGA port on the motherboard.

if still a problem:
you could try to right click on the desktop and select something like "switch GPU", select the 680 and try the installation again.
make sure you have not disabled something in the BIOS that should not have been disabled.

still problem:
can GPU-Z see the 680?
