Default Problem installing new video card

Hey, I have an HP a1410n and I'm having major trouble getting this new card to work. I went to HP and found step by step instructions on how to do this, and still have no luck. I have a PNY 7600GT and i'm pretty confident it should work in this box. Minimum specs are met. I've disabled the onboard graphics and changed the setting in the BIOS to PCI-E. The card is installed and has power because the fan is running, but Windows will not recognize it at all, it's like it's not there. HP was no help whatsoever. Any advice would be appreciated.
