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.

I tried to install RX1300GA2-E3 but i just get a black screen , i'm running XP and have a 350 W power supply. Has anyone else had similar problems and does anyone have any possible solutions, please ?

There are a few things to check.
1 Remove card and reseat,be sure it is seated correctly.
2 Check that you did not by mistake bump any wires or connections inside the case on the motherboard.
3 Bios... possible you need to configure your video settings in the bios.Either onboard needs to be disabled or agp needs to be enabled.Or both.
4 monitor.Is there a digital and analog setting on it? set it to digital.
5 New vid card.does it need power? check that, also. some need external power from the mobo to run.Usually a 4 prong plug on the card in the back towards the top.

xp and a 350w power supply should be fine for this card.remember to install the drivers for it.

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 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.

What power supply? where can i find that on the video card

Some cards have a 6 pin power connector. It shouldn't be hard to miss.
If the card is plugged in, the connection would be facing the front.
I found a picture that would help you find what you're looking for.
Some power supplies carry this kind of connection. If it's an older system, it likely won't.
If that's the case, then you need to buy a new power supply, depending on how much the video card needs to run at.
If you have the box for the video card still, look on the bottom or side, it will tell you how much you need.
Is this what you were asking about? I couldn't be too sure.

No display after installed H4550 Driver on Windows XP

did you install the driver?, also did you run the "new hardware wizard"?, you might need to uninstall the "old" driver for the old card, then put in the "new" card and boot it up the "found new hardware" wizard should pick it up and install it, if it's "plug and play", let me know if this helps,happy 4th, and god bless

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?

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.

Looking to buy a new graphics card

You have a PCI Express slot to put a graphics card in. You can get a bigger graphics card to install in the machine but the power supply you are using in your comptuer is only 300 watts. If the specs of the memory card tell you to upgrade the power supply if its blow x amount watts you will have to do that in order to not run into problems. The good thing about e-machines is that you can upgrade the power supply at the same time. Usually they don't cost a lot of money.

You might have to get one thats around 425 to 475 watts depending on what the instructions tell you. If the new video card you are using is running a fan for cooling, chance are it will need an upgrade.

Installed new graphics card and Windows won't start

If your new video card has a power connector, make sure it is connected to a power plug. If you already did that, it's possible your PC's power supply doesn't have enough power to run all your connected equipment.

To get your old card running, hit F8 repeatedly during boot-up until you get the boot options. Select VGA mode. It should boot up properly then.

Once booted into VGA mode, set your screen resolution to something simple like 1024x768 or 800x600, then reboot.

If that doesn't work, try hitting F5 repeatedly during boot-up to boot into Safe mode. You can then adjust your settings again there.
