Want to change video card in Sony VGC-RA842G

There is a black plastic bracket with a slot attached to the power supply that the video card is sitting in. I can't figure out how to remove the power supply to get the black bracket off the video card. I don't want to snap the bracket off as I'm not sure what it is attached to.

The black ops freezes in the same place over and again i escape the chair i get punced and that is as far as i get i have reinstalled the game starting over and did not work how do i get passed that?


The graphics card doesn't support this game. Many realistic type games "Highly Realistic Graphics" need the added performance of a dedicated higher end graphics card. Example: I'm a huge gamer and I play games that you could/would play on the Xbox One or PlayStation 4. So my Gaming Video Card cost me $480 US dollars. ( High End )
Look at the recommended, supported Video Card for Black Ops and go from that point "Note" If your computer is a laptop; chances are, you will not be able to do any video upgrades. You'd just be out of luck and your laptop wasn't made for higher end games. If it is a Desktop, you might be in luck. To upgrade a desktop: (1) Available video card slot (2) Does the computer case support a video card upgrade (3) What power supply does your computer have and what WATT Power supply does the new video card need. Most higher end video cards need a higher WATT power supply - So standard power supply 350 WATT - Video upgrade average 500Watt to 800Watt.

Hope this helps, Have a great night..

Radeon X800GTO graphics card will not recognize power cable


Video cards like this one, requires besides being connected on a PCI Express slot, a direct connection with th power supply.
Its very likely that this is the power extension cable message you are receiving.
If you have it attached and still not working, then that is bad.....your video card may be smoked.

Go over the connection one more time, and good luck.

Gtx+ shorts out powersupply


1.Power supply doesn't have enough Amps for the 12 volt voltage rail.

2.Power supply doesn't have the required power cables/connectors required.
You NEED TWO 6-pin PCI Express power cables.
If you use just one, you will burn up the connectors down in the PCI Express x16 slot, and the power cable connection on the GTX card, and/or fry the power supply.

3.Cheap power supply that came in a deal when buying a computer case. Cheap case? Cheap power supply.

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.
