NVidia GeForce 9300 265MB with a 250 watt PSU

Can anyone tell me anything about this video card... the link at NVidia is DEAD! I don't know if it's a GeForce 9300GE or a GeFarce 9300 Crapmaster 2000

Also... Can a Video card that's worth a damn work off of a 250 watt PSU?

If I had known this PC only had a 250 watt PSU and the video card was so ambiguous... I would have continued to keep power shopping.

I have a ATI HD2400 in my old single CPU eMachines and it needs 400 watts!

I ordered a 64 bit Intel Pentium Dual Core E5300 2.6 GHz, 4G RAM 800MHz

What is Giga Ethernet? as opposed to regular Ethernet? Do I have it?

Thank you for being here! TC in Tampa!

    I have the same issue in that I bought an HP 'multi-media' system with the same video-card. To be honest its completely useless when it comes to high-end graphics games and it seems way out of place when it comes to the other hard-ware on the CPU which performs superbly.

    I have a 300w PSU, so I'm wondering what my upgrade options are?

GeForce 9300GE is the video card
GeForce 9300 is the motherboard

Also 250 Watt would not be sufficient for most new video cards. Most need a 450+ for requirements.

Giga Ethernet is short for Gigabyte Ethernet which allows for more speed if you have a higher speed internet service

    No problem. The problem with upgrading store bought computers is that they only supply each part sufficient enough to run the rest, hence the low powered PSU instead of a more reliable one. Glad I could help.

I have a emachine t 2245 and i forgot to remove a card reader from the usb port and it overloaded the supply, i have a idea that i poped a icp. i have all six usb ports dead and also have no audio,...

You can try a new PSU with at least 350 watts and that will determine as to whether the PSU is blown.n I'm suprised that a simple card reader would have blown the supply though, I wonder if you have managed to short out the board somehow. I can understand the USB controller chip being blown, but that and the audio too suggests that the power regulation has overloaded the motherboard

How do take out the PSU? I have already removed the exterior of the computer but I cannot figure out how to remove the PSU connections to the other parts of the computer.

very easy. 4 screws hold supply on on each side of the PSU. Firmly grasp the connector (24 or 20 pin ) from the Motherboard. Now remove the 4 pin ( 2 yellow 2 black) connector from the board ( may be keyed as other NB connector. Remove the power connectors from CDROM, Floppy, Hard Disk and anything else with connectors. You should now remove the supply.

Thermaltake Power Express 450 problem: Have to wait one hour !

The problem is obviously with the Thermaltake PSU.

I'm thinking either it's not turning on at the same time as the primary PSU, or it isn't feeding stable, clean voltages to the graphics card. Either calls for a return to the manufacturer.

Now on to getting your video working. What you want is enough power going to your video card. Try connecting the card to your primary PSU instead of the Thermaltake one. 630W might be enough depending on how reliable the brand is, as they often lie.

If it doesn't work, getting a more powerful primary power supply will fix the problem. Go for 750W+to be safe.

HP Pavilion 250 watt PSU that includes a Nvidia GeForce 9300

The maximum output of a PSU simply means it is able to supply a certain amount of power. It can also deliver anything under the wattage. Where you fry things is where the connectors are wrong. HP, COmpaq, Dell, IBM have all, at times, used nonstandard connectors in their PCs. If you take something with a standard connector, and use it in a machine where that connector needs to nonstandard, you can fry stuff.
