Question about MSI N9600GT-T2D512, PCI Express Video Card
I have just assembled a new PC. The motherboard is an MSI P45D3 Neo and the VGA PCI-E Card is MSI N9600GT. The processor is Intel E7400 (Core2Duo). The motherboard has no VGA built in . The memories are DDR3 1 GB x 3 modules / 1066 Mhz.
Even though the PC starts and the fans of both the CPU and the VGA work, the PC gives one long and two short POST tones, indicating that the problem is with the video.
The VGA card has a power connector (6 pins) but is not the standard and the cable is not included in the box.
I already tried to interchange the memories, and to put 1 GB at the time. I have also tried to reset the BIOS.
As the VGA card is the only way to have a visual interfase, I'm unable to access the BIOS.
I tried everything and I'm desperate because is the PC of a friend of mine and he doesn't understand technical issues...
Questions: Is mandatory to connect the power connector of the VGA Card? or is optional? It's the only PCI-E card that I have....
How can I troubleshoot this problem and rule out hardware problems?
All the hardare is new with the exception of the case and the PSU. (+400W)...
I will really appreciate to receive a helpful response....
Yes , you need the extra power adaptor to your video card.
I would contact the seller or go to your local computer store taking the video card to make sure you get the correct adaptor.
