Have a look at it in Device Manager, see if it needs the drivers re installing

Just an idea but did the computer originally have a graphics card and for some reason you have replaced that card with another one, or was there no graphics card originally, graphics originally running from an onboard graphic chip on the motherboard, which may need disabling in the bios settings for the card to function properly.
