    DX79SR Board not detecting EVGA GTX 680 Classified GPU on first ever boot!

    Juan Chavez

      Hi, I'm having trouble getting the Motherboard to recognize the GPU on its first ever boot. According to the box the MOBO is NVIDIA SLI ready, I cannot get to see BIOS due to motherboard not detecting GPU. I get the 2 beeps pause 2 beeps from the MOBO  which means the GPU is not detected according to the sheet that comes with the MOBO. I have re-seated the GPU several times on the primary slot and have tried all other PCI express slots also. GPU's normal operation green light is on, GPU's fan is on. I do not have another GPU to rule out PCI express slot being damaged. Are there any known motherboard compatibility issues with this GPU? I read in one google search that some of the new graphic cards have a new UEFI-compatible VBIOS (GOP) and that this motherboard has a older version and does not detect it, is this true? What can I do? please help, thanks
