If you have correctly connected the graphics card to the motherboard, have connected the 1x6-pin power cable, connected the monitor to the graphics card and are connected to the internet. Windows 10 should detect the graphics card, download and install the drivers.

The card I have does not require a 6 pin I have seen different versions of this card,no matter what I try it just does not want to work in windows 10 I am currently installing windows 7 on another HDD to see if it works in there it could just be a windows 10 thing. Will keep posted

Okay some things to run through:

  1. When you were given the card, did the previous owner tell when last they had it working?

  2. Does your PC have a PSU of 400W or better?

  3. Was the Nvidia software and drivers completely uninstalled before installing the AMD software? A program like DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) can help with the removal of stubborn old drivers.
