Try it in another slot. If that doesn't help, it is either not compatible with your mainboard, or it is broken.

Solved. I experimented with the motherboard bios. I had to tell the motherboard i was using DUAL graphics card, even though it is a controller card and not a graphic card. The 8 red lights now do a cool nightrider patern.
