I have an Alienware 14 from 2013. running on a gtx765m. it has always been running fine but today after shutting the pc down and turning it on later the graphics card was not recognized i couldnt run games and could not update my Nvdia drivers. the card was not detected in bios also

Maybe the graphic card died, was it overheating or something?

@elpitaya i was experiencing some overheating issues, then i took off the back cover and removed dust from the fans a few days ago. then i had no problems then now its not detected

Maybe you screwed up reconnecting the connectors or tightening screws.

Are the fans working fine? , I'd try reinstalling windows or boot another OS and if the graphics card it's not detected it died.. sadly :(

@Avantyr i didnt remove any parts, just the back cover so i could blow the fans' dust out

remove electric static charge from motherboard. its a 20 seconds thing. ALso Check bios if GPU is detected or not. Later uninstall gpu driver and install from nvidia site

@Mr_747 not to be rude but i have already mentioned that the gpu is not detected in bios, i tried to reinstall drivers too butvit wouldnt let me because it says i dont have an nvidia gpu
