Try it in another slot. Also check if your POST displays the new card during bootup.

Then either the card must be bad, not properly inserted in the slot, or not compatible with the mainboard.

If it isn't shown in device manager it must be a bad new card in that case. You could try it out in another PC to verify that, and if it isn't shown there either get it replaced under warranty.
