    Intel Desktop Board cannot find GPU in PCIe slot--please help


      Board is D945GTP D945PLM, powered by a 550 watt PSU, which was tested with a voltmeter and is working correctly as far as I can tell.

      CPU is a Pentium 4, and 2 gb of DDR2 RAM.  Windows 7 x64.


      The system runs fine with or without the video card--no issues anywhere. The onboard graphics function perfectly.  Windows is 100% up to date.

      I cannot, for the life of me, get the motherboard to recognize the graphics card in the PCIe slot.  The card is a ATI Twin Frozr II that was tested in my roommate's computer and works perfectly.  I've installed all the drivers for the card, along with with the Intel "ALL OS" chipset drivers (thought for sure it would work after that) but still nothing.


      When I right click "Display drivers" and press "scan for hardware changes", Windows attempts to install the IPMI and PCI drivers but fails.  The board does have PCI slots, so do I need to the PCI drivers?  I'm not sure, and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.  Do I need to update the BIOS?


      Please help--I'm a college student that's fairly poor.  Any and all input will be greatly appreciated.


      Thanks guys.
