    The card does not have a fan, but yet, there is a 2 pin cable supplied in the retail box. On the card, the connector is also present, however, the 2 poles need to be connected to the MB. I have not connected this to my MB, and the card works well! So why supply the cable? What voltage des it need if we were to connect the cable to the MB?



    Any experiences/suggestions?

    I can't see any power cable from the picture at the nvidia site. The only power connection I see is for the heat sink/cooling fan, which connects to a connector on the video card itself. According to the specs, the card only draws 50 watts, so I don't see why it would need a power supply connection. Do you have the manual?

I would look carefully on the video card. There is a place to plug in this fan.

No the mobo is compatible with the Power Supply, and GPU.
And vice-versa.

Mainboard fan???????
You mean the Processor (CPU) fan?

I'm guessing I guess, because computer case fans aren't on the motherboard/mainboard/mobo.
(MOtherBOard)

You're getting power to the mobo, but the question is how much?

1) IF ALL of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can use from 51 to 125 Watts of power.
Just depends on what Processor it is.

http://206.108.48.60/app/en/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=363&tab=1

The mobo will support Intel Core2 Quad-Core processors. Depending on which one, you may be talking about Up To 105 Watts of power,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#Quad-Core_Desktop_processors

This is why LED's can light, and fans may spin, but the Processor isn't getting enough power, so the computer will not turn on. (Processor isn't turning on)

Why?

1) Just because that Power Supply is new, doesn't mean it is good.
Sometimes you get a bad one. Test the three main voltages coming out, with a multimeter set to DC Voltage.

Need guidance post back in a Comment.
(An economical multimeter can be purchased, for as little as $8 to $12. I have seen cheaper. Available in a multitude of stores. An auto parts store is but one example )

2) You don't have the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable plugged in.
Goes to the white square 4-socket hole connector, to the left top corner of the Processor socket.
(Motherboard installed in computer case)

3) REQUIRES -> TWO 6-pin PCI-Express power cables, for the Nvidia GTX560Ti graphics card.

The Antec HCG750 PSU has 4 of them, so no problem there, IF you have two of them plugged into the graphics card.

Both connectors of the 20 + 4-pin ATX main power cable's connector, need to be used. Biostar mobo requires a 24-pin ATX main power cable.

Post back in a Comment as to power cables plugged in, and DC Voltage test on PSU.

Its a GPU problem.
It can be overcome by doing reflow technique.
You need to do following.
1. Uncover ur PC casing
2. Locate the nVIDIA PCI-E Card.
3. On the card, locate the power supply pin of GPU fan.
4. Remove the pin.
5. Switch on ur PC.
6. Still u may get scrambled display/wavy screen, but wait for 5 minutes.
7. Press reset button on ur PC.
8. Ur PC might work.
9. Switch it off.
10. Connect the power supply pin back as it is.
11. Power on ur PC.
thats all.

Removal of fan power, makes the GPU to get high heat, it a reflow technique.
Remember, not to touch the GPU portion (heat sink), as it may be in higher temperature.
Try this, it works most.

There are several reasons for hardware hangup.
But, if there is a problem with nVIDIA PCI express card, then the problem could be with the GPU.

It has been fine for the years I had it but now it won't turn on


do you have any red rings on your console if so it is possible to be fixed by this method:
e74 or rrod error means that there is an hardware issue.
What you need to do is a very simple and cheap repair.
look on ebay for x clamp repair kits, these are just a few bucks and most sellers include a good guide in how to do the mod/fix.
what causes the rrod or e74 error is the X shape clamp on the underside or the mother board bending and mis-shaping causing the ball soldering on the gpu/cpu slightly melting and forming hairline cracks in the solder.
The x-clamp kit will apply more pressure to the gpu/cpu and a little trick of disconnecting the fans and turning on the xbox and allowing it to overheat will re melt the solder ball joints to fill the hairline cracks.
Depending on which chip is the issue you may also need a 2000 watt heat gun instead of using the over heating method (the gpu chip).
Replacing the heat pads on the heat sink with thermal paste which comes with the kit will keep the gpu/cpu cooler and you wont have this issue again.
Please make sure you buy the kit which comes with heat treated nylon washers as the steel spring washes fail!.
The repair takes around 1-2 hours

If no lights are on your console do you get the light on the power supply as you might have a faulty power supply and if no light is on the power supply it could be as simple as a faulty power cable from the plug to the block

When i turn the xbox on the screen on the televison is black. Nothing is showing up.


It's not your TV or your a/v cables or your mind playing tricks on you.
The Problem is 2-3 pins under the G.P.U . called the (video feed line)
to the HANA / ANA chip set have de-solder itself from the main board.

Fix 1 is to have the G.P.U. re-flowed. This gives the most durable repair

Fix 2 is to send it to Microsoft . wait 2-3 weeks. results will very.

Fix 3 Bite the bullet . Open it up remove the G.P.U. xclamp bracket
replace with screws and nylon washers and follow xclamp
mod overheating instrutions . this will get your unit working
it will last anywhere from 1-5 months some times longer.

if you have any questions just comment and ill respond.

Nvidia geforce 9500 gt gpu work on asus p5n73-am


Hi!

Nahh...you can use that gpu with that mobo, but i wouldent recomend it. The GPU - Requires NVIDIA HybridPower™- enabled motherboard, and that mobo dosent have that. It might work but you cant use the full power of that gpu on that mobo. And beside that, that gpu is bigger then the mobo itself
I sugest you to buy another mobo, the gpu you looking at is a good one but your mobo isent that good.

Here is the spec for the GPU:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/product_geforce_9500gt_us.html

And here are the spec for that mobo:
