Unable to see video card type in Device Manager when drivers appear to be installed Asus m51bc-us0060

Windows 7 Pro 64bit, up-to-date, factory ASUS video card r9270x.  Installing a fresh copy of Windows 7 64bit.  With factory video card installed Device Manager shows Standard VGA Graphics Adapter.  I swapped this video card for another with no resolve.  I've reset BIOS to defaults.  

I've installed MFG video driver packages.

None of the above steps have resolved the problem.

Thanks in advance.

See if the driver for your card is available on this ASUS page

https://www.asus.com/support/Download/9/10/19/1/ulXo7iSR4YdDHryo/30/

Under the BIOS selection, it suggests some drivers but I have not done such a thing so I am not sure about the BIOS drivers.

You'll possibly need the AMD chipset drivers to be installed first.  Possibly.  AMD do things differently.

Now you've described your box as a m51bc-us0060

Can't find that.  Are you sure that is it?  There are us002O and other variations.

For the mb51bc go here and download and install the chipset drivers.  But check that is the right version for your motherboard.

Also check the BIOS settings and see if it is set to use the graphics from the graphics card slot rather than from any onboard graphics.  Unsure if your machine has onboard graphics or not.

you have to install all the drivers for the motherboard first - then the video card driver
what mobo is this?

Might be an O versus a zero at the end of the model number.  I will try installing the mobo drivers first then the video card driver.  First time I've ever experienced such an issue.

Looks like an O
it can also be a bad video card  - check if you see it in the bios -it could be disabled
or you need a bios update possibly

Open your device manager then display adapters is there 2 different adapters listed?
One represents onboard one is the graphics adapter
Go to the top of device manager and view> tick to show hidden devices see if there is "other" devices.
You should do this in safemode
Uninstall both then manually install choose the drivers for motherboard use motherboard disc if you ahve one.
Install motherboard drivers first
then the video card which is?
Another way to check the display adapters in windows 7
rightclick desktop>screen resolution>to the right click on advanced settings it will list your graphics card or your onboard chip
