6800gt power issues

Hi, i have a pixelview 6800gt pciexpress edition and it has been acting up on me recently.. this card seems to have a LED to show that the card is working and functional but when i power up my computer the LED flashes on and then immediatley turns off...seems like i dont have enough power but i have a thermaltake 430watt power supply and i think that is not the cause. i think that the card is faulty but after several attempts of turning my computer on and off until the LED and fan starts working it works.. what is the problem with my card? :)

Either it has a bad regulator IC or relay IC. The guy from service center told me so :)

It may be a sign the fan is going/went bad. You should try unhooking the fan. See what happens. Turn the system on...If it works, great. You should replace the fan. Video cards have fans as a bonus to cool them down. If a fan goes bad and gets a short it will affect the video card. Hopefully the heat didn't damage the card. Good Luck, Tim

EVGA GT 520 graphics card stops working and recovers. I just bought this product a week ago and I don't think overheating is an issue.


try to reconnect your device and reconnect power supply on mother board..

if it is not working than go to the service station... if you bought this product a week ago so it means it has valid warranty...

ifyou find this is helpful for you so please rate me this will encourage me to domore free work..

Netvista won't start up

Hi there,
I can understand your issue. Well it seems the issue is based on Motherboard or Memory Card.

But we have to check all the possible solutions.

1) At first when you turn on the computer are u getting any beep sound.
If the beep sound is lengthy then i'm sure the memory card is gone bad.
2)You can try by swapping the memory card in different slot and try turning it on.

3) Once you isolated as memory is not the problem, then go ahead and take out the battery (like a COIN) inside the board. Then try turning on.

4) If still the same problem, please disconnect all the cable from the board (Includes HDD, CD-ROM, FDD) and check for the flea power led which is on the board.

5) If the LED is lit on, then no issues with motherboard.

6) Finally you have to check with SMPS.

If all the above 5 condition is true, then you have to replace SMPS (Switched Mode Power Supply).

If you have any constraints please revert..
