Graphics card not detected

Hi all,

I recently moved into a new place and after I set up my pc I find that none of my games will launch. :(

After some troubleshooting, I ended up installing windows 10 (was on windows 7 before). I reinstalled my drivers, but when it came to the graphics card driver it loads and then says "This graphics driver could not find any compatible hardware". Device Manager only shows Intel HD Graphics, and when I plug a monitor into the graphics card the screen remains black. I have tried a different graphics cards, using the other pci-e slot, and lots of googleing, but I am out of ideas.

I am worried something got damaged in the move, but I've moved this computer time after time without any problems.

Motherboard: ASrock z77 extreme 4 CPU: i5 3570k

Graphics Card: EVGA GTX 970 and I also tried my MSI GTX 660ti

RAM: 16gb

PSU: OCZ 750w

Did up do the upgrade from Windows 7 or did you do a clean install of Windows 10?

Have you tried the lower PCIE slot? It's possible your motherboard was damaged during the move.
