Is not Reading My Geforce GTX 260 Card

What do you mean connect wire to graphics card?

A) Computer is to be OFF when connecting a monitor cable.

B) Computer is to be OFF, and unplugged from power; when plugging the power cable from Power Supply, into it.

You are also supposed to be Following Anti-Static Precautions.

What Power Supply are you using?
Manufacturer name, and model number. Post back in a Comment.

Motherboard requires about 150 Watts by itself.

That isn't including what the Processor (CPU) needs, Ram Memory needs, optical drive/s need, computer case fans need; AND what the Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 graphics card needs.

It needs 225 Watts by itself.

(Manufacturers usually state around 500 Watts MINIMUM.
This is in reality based on a COMPLETE computer system, and NOT just the graphics card itself)

What do I base that the GTX 260 needs 225 Watts?
(I see that as the -> Maximum, though )

A PCI Express x16 expansion slot on a motherboard, is only capable of 75 Watts of power.
That is why the additional power cables were brought out.

The 6-pin PCI Express power cable that plugs into the GTX 260, is capable of an additional 75 Watts of power.

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 requires using TWO 6-pin PCI Express power cables

That means 150 Watts of additional power.
75 Watts + 150 Watts = 225 Watts

"Supplementary Power Connectors -> 6-pin x2"

If you are using just one 6-pin PCI Express power cable, '
this = NO.

NOT enough power for the graphics card.

What will happen?

A) The PCI Express x16 slot connector oins, will burn
B) The gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the graphics card, will burn.
C) The connector on the graphics card, that the 6-pin PCI Express power cable plugs into, will burn.
D) The connector on the 6-pin PCI Express power cable will burn.

The graphics card will burn up.
Too little power.

IF, your Power Supply has enough power, and IF there are two 4-pin Peripheral power cables that aren't being used; you can use a 6-pin PCI Express power adapter cable.

Example of 4-pin Peripheral power cable,

Example of 6-pin PCI Express power adapter cable, was shown in the Playtool link,

Do you need a 24 power plug? for this motherboard? and if not how do i connect it then with a 20 power plug?

Its better if you have 24 pin power plug. If you don't have you can use 20 pin power plug also.
Insert the 20 pin leave 4 pin blank it will work.

Hi bain_j,

your motherboard has a slot for this. I have encircled the slot on the picture I have attached. Also I checked and the current Power Supply that came in with your HP Pavilion will not be able to support the card. You would need to get a new power supply unit preferably around 600 watts and with a PCIE 6-pin power. I hope this helps. Please let me know.

Hmmm.... mainly you have:
-20 or 24-pins connector, that is unique and goes directly to motherboard (powers motherboard and its components)
-4 or 8-pins connector that powers CPU
-the rest would be connectors for ROM (CD/DVD/BlueRay) and HDD devices (there are: molex and sata power conectors)

If you totaly unshure, there is manual:

Good day sir, let try to test first the power supply, Unplug the power cord, remove the 20 pin (24 pin for the late model) molex power connector from the motherboard, plug in the power cord, get a 2 to 4 inch jumper wire, short the green wire with any of the red or black wire on the molex 20 pin power plug, the result maybe the following:
  1. you will see the power supply fan turn. you power supply is in good order. replug the power supply, and test again.
  2. you will see the fan turn for a few second then stops. you power supply is selective, and may require a different type of motherboard. Get a new one.
  3. you wont see the fan turn at all. get a new one.
If in case you are with #1. uinplug the power cord and remove all the expansion cards, data cables from the hard disk and cd drives. we are trying to isolate the problem. make sure that the only connected cables on the motherboard are as follows:
  1. 20 pin power cable.
  2. 4 pin 12 volt power cable (if applicable)
  3. speaker
  4. power switch
  5. power led
Test the pc once more. plug in the PC. If still the board wont power on. problem with your motherboard. Note:make sure your RAM is good. Hope this helps.

Newly built system will not power up!

It seems like you have bad MOBO. I recently ordered all the stuff to build 2 new systems. Built the first one, no power, just like yours. Moved everything to the 2nd MOBO, everything worked. I did a RMA on the DOA MOBO. Got the new one and it fired right up. Sometimes you just get bad stuff.

Regarding compatible memory

You should have posted each problem seperately as they are unrelated. I will try to answer both.

First, here is the link to the Elite webpage to download drivers for the K7AMA motherboard:)

From the motherboard manual...

Key Features
The key features of this mainboard include:
Socket-462 Processor Support
¨ Supports AMD Athlon/Duron processors
¨ Supports 200/266 MHz Front-Side Bus
Memory Support
¨ Two 168-pin DIMM slots for SDRAM memory modules
¨ Two 184-pin DIMM slots for DDR memory modules
¨ Support for 100/133MHz memory bus
¨ Maximum installed memory is 1GB
Note: You cannot use SDRAM and DDR simultaneously.
Expansion Slots
¨ One AMR slot for a special audio/modem riser card
¨ One AGP4X slot for AGP 2.0-compliant interface
¨ Four 32-bit PCI slots for PCI 2.2-compliant bus interface
Onboard IDE channels
¨ Primary and Secondary PCI IDE channels
¨ Support for PIO (programmable input/output) modes
¨ Support for Multiword DMA modes
¨ Support for Bus Mastering and Ultra DMA 33/66/100/133
Power Supply and Power Management
¨ ATX power supply connector
¨ ACPI and previous PMU support, suspend switch,
keyboard power on/off
¨ Supports Wake on Modem, Wake on LAN and Wake on

Note that there are differenet revisions of the board. Also, if you have one of the 'crossover' revisions with two types of memory slots, you cannot use the 168-pin SDRAM slots at the same time as the 184-pin DDR slots to increase your total memory.


No display can be caused by a number of factors, especially as you do not give the history of the board. Generally you should hear the onboard speaker beep if the computer completes the Power On Self Test (POST). If there is no onboard speaker there should be a connector on the motherboard to connect the case speaker, usually a four-pin connector with two wires used.

If you are not completing POST it could be anything from a bad motherboard, bad CPU, bad ram, bad video card, bad power supply (not supplying correct or sufficient voltage), bad BIOS chip or not just configured properly. If you had to connect the CPU, did you use one that is supported by the motherboard and did you mount it with thermal paste, heatsink and fan?

Most obvious sign of a bad motherboard would be if any of the cylindrical capacitors have swollen tops or are leaking fluids out of their top. Take a good look at the motherboard and all of the pieces on it. I've even seen the copper coils completely burnt. But not all motherboard problems are visible so it could still be a bad board if nothing looks amiss. You would really need a good motherboard analyzer (mine cost $1200) to know for sure.

Next, are the other components known good and tested one by one in another system? You did not give enough information to focus in on what the problem might be. I would suggest you try to connect a speaker first to see if there is a beep code at all, if not it is likely a bad motherboard/CPU. Then try puttting in a different video card, PCI if possible because you might have a bad AGP slot, too. Next try a Boot Analyzer that plugs into the serial port to see if you are getting any CPU activity. There are just so many tests, you might need to have hands on assistance if it is worth the cost. In general try to test each component piece by piece in another (working) system.

Please repost with your progress and comments.

Hi quezalte, there are three versions of this board. Please provide which version you have. This can be found on the box or on the board. (v1.1, v2.1 & v3.0)
Did you add thermal grease in-between the CPU heat-sink & fan assembly? Did you clear the cmos/bios page 9, in you're manual. (Do not forget to place the jumper back to Normal as shown in the manual). You're board must have sufficient power to operate. Suggest you're current power supply uses a 24-pin ATA _12v main connector at ATX1 page 10.
(Though the mother board mentions you can use a 20-pin ATX power connector).
(Not suggested).
You also must connect the auxiliary case power supply connector, 4-pin molex to ATX12V page 10 in you're manual.
Lastly, remove & reseat you're video card. Make sure the video cards copper connector's are evenly & completely inserted into the PCIE orange slot. You will not see video display if it is not seated correctly. Some PCIE video cards may also need power. Some may have a connector on them. (If you would have posted the name & model of you're PCIE card I could have advised whether is needs extra power). Lastly, you're power supply should be no less than 450watt. If you add hard drives to all the SATA slots available to you're board. I suggest you use a 550w power supply. If after checking & adjusting all of the above & you still have some problems. Re-post you're problems here.
I will address any & all for you.

Good Luck!
Suggestions & comments welcomed.
