    4070 Super FE not detected

    I received my 4070 Super Founder's Edition card yesterday, installed it this evening. Removed drivers beforehand with DDU then shut the PC down. Removed the old 3070 and inserted the 4070 Super in the same slot and connected the 12-pin power cable and HDMI cable. Started it back up - nothing on screen at all.

    Switched the HDMI cable into the motherboard HDMI socket and got into Windows, no sign of the 4070 in Device Manager. Updated the BIOS (board is a MSI Z690-A Pro), still nothing.

    Any further suggestions more than welcome...

    Made sure the protective strip is off the card connector?

    Power supply enough to power the beast?

    Is the 12-pin power cable an adapter or one that goes direct to the power supply? If an adapter are you using multiple independent pci-e power lines rather than all on the same line?

    Tried booting into a live linux environment and seeing if you can see it there?

    Tried a different slot? (assuming more than one pci-e)

    Might be worth a motherboard BIOS upgrade as well in case it is a fixed PCIe setup bug.

    Re: 4070 Super FE not detected

    In addition to previous comments, you can also try removing the PCIe power cables entirely and power up the PC, you should still get a display but you'll see a BIOS warning message telling you that that the GPU doesn't have enough power. You'd then know that the GPU is attempting to display something and it has life in it.

    To think in one generation that's the same as my 3090.... but uses less power!

    ^^ I'd check these, did you seat the 12-pin cable properly?

    You say you cant see it in windows, any sign of it in the BIOS?

    Also, have you checked your PCI-ex slot is running in the right mode, not Auto?
