Angry Vista can't find video card!?!?!

During mid summer i finally had the cash for a new computer so i got a friend to custom build one:

Nvidia E-GeForce 7900 GS KO video card
Asus M2A-VM motherboard
AMD Anthlon 64X2 4200+ cpu
500 gig hard drive
and 2 gigs of ram



Well i was wanting to run Vista but once i got the OS installed and all but the video card driver installed, i went to install the video card driver and it didn't work. So i went to the Nvidia or evga site for an updated driver the tried a couple of those. Either it would say i'm not running the right type of vista or it says it can't find my video card. Any ideas of what i can do??

Thanks,
Nathan

Sounds to me like the graphics card isn't installed properly. Take it out and make sure it is lined up and seated correctly in the slot.

My 8800GTX was not easy to install and took a bit of force. Be careful not to damage the card.
