You need a Power Supply with a 6-pin PCI-express power connector, or either a 4-pin molex to 6-pin PCI-e converter. One of these converters should probably came with your graphics card.
The power connector in your card is located on the top-right corner if you pick it with the GPU facing towards you.

Hi ya, ive been given this video card an just checked this card fits my board and its telling me i need to connect power cable. is this cable in the tower or do i need a seperate cable to connect to the...


pci x cards have a plug in spot on them usually it is a 6 pin spot. some like sli cards have 8 pin plugs. anyway you need to look on the card for a plug in spot. a socket which holds a plug. older agp style cards these are 4 pin plugs just like the plug for a cd or dvd drive. see which type of plug you have. then search through all the unused plugs from your power subbly. if you have the correct one plug it in .if not you will need a new power supply to run that card.

I have just installed an ati radeon x800xt graphics card. system is 3 ghz p4, 400 watt power supply. I have plugged power in but fan is not working


When you are running low wattage power supplies, sometimes you need power from 2 locations within that power supply, Ie make sure you get 2 cables that are seperate from each other but still part of the same psu, which plug into your graphics card. Always work with a static wrist strap, you could of fried your graphics card. I'd say it's probably inserted into your motherboard, you just need power from the psu as well as motherboard to power this card.

I installed the card on my motherboard, and it burns?


There seems to be some electrical problem with the card, or the way you connected it.

First of all, is your power supply a brand one (like Thermaltake) or a generic one? Generic power supplies do not work well with the better range of graphics cards since they don't provide a stable current.

However, if you say you smell burning plastic, the first thing I would look at is the way it's connected to the motherboard and the PSU. Did you attach all the extra connectors from the PSU to the graphics card? The card would have an extra power slot on the top (A 6-pin I think, I had two on my XFX 8800). Is it connected directly to the PSU, or did you use some sort of adapter to be able to plug it in? If you used some sort of 4-pin to 6-pin converter, this could very well be the cause of your problem. If your PSU does not have a 6-pin connector, it might just not be strong enough to handle this card.

If you couldn't find anything wrong with your power connectors, I would try installing the card on another computer and see if it fails there as well. Again, my guess is that your PSU is just not fit to handle that card, cause I haven't seen many 400W *good* PSUs in my life.

Connector problem...


The card doesn't need a power connection. I would download the driver first, then install the card. If the driver will not install this way, install the card first.

Bought a Nvidia Geforce 7800 GTX 256MB Graphics card


errrr.... do you mean the 6 pin pci-e power plug and lead that normally comes off your Power supply?

You can get converters leads that change the pinout of 5.35 HDD power to 6-pin pci-e but this is usually NOT RECOMMENDED for any GTX series of GeForce.

You usually need the dedicated PCI-E RAIL (with its own PCI-E lead/connector... or even better x 2 of them) on your power supply for these builds.

Once again.... i definately do not recommend converting one of your other power outputs to run a GTX. At best it will not work.... at worst (though unlikely) you may end up damaged your shiny new GFX card.

If you do not have a 6 pin PCI-E lead and plug running directly from your power supply to run this card.... you need one. Do you happen to know the model of your current PSU?

I have a P5VD2-MX motherboard, currently I have a Geforce 7900GS.


Hi!

Since there is 1 PCI Express x16 slot you can use any PCI Express GPU, like Asus GeForce GTX 260 896MB PhysX CUDA, EVGA GeForce 9800GT 512MB PhysX CUDA, Gainward GeForce 9800GT 512MB PhysX CUDA or whatever you want as long as it is a PCI EPRESS card.

Good luck

New video card wont work


The place to do this in bios is under the onboard devices area. Is there a power connection required for the new card? If so you would need to plug the 6 pin pci-e power connector to the power connection plug on the new card. If not required make sure your power supply supplies enough wattage to run the new card. Hope this helps.

Dell 410XPs + Dell 3007WFP monitor issues


Vinod,
That's quite strange as during system startup you should see the Dell POST logo as at that point the card is only running at VGA, and the monitor will support display at this resolution. If you connect with a normal single DVI cable the monitor should display at 1280x800 also.
Have you tried this? Also have you had this monitor working on another computer at all? What happens if you power up the 3007 with no video cable connected? It should cycle through the pixel test screens. If you are not getting that, and you are not getting the pre POST logo during powerup i suspect that it is a screen failure.

Monitor won't turn on


Verify all of the power supply connections have been made. Also, verify the RAM is properly seated. You might also try moving the RAM to other slot(s).
