Re-Check your power connectors to the main board. mainly the 24-pin EATXPWR conncetor is seated right. Looking at the CPU & to its left there is a 4-pin ATA12v connector which must be connected. Bottom line recheck all internal power connectors.
Lastly there is a red slide switch on the back of PSU, make sure it is set to 115V.
Chances are something is loose. The motherboard manual for your board is a big help.

Right here's an idea or three...
1. Uninstall all drivers / software pertaining to Nvidia. Operating system dependant, go to or and search for instance nvidia Quadro Fx4500 driver windows 7 the top three matches should help. Once you find what matches your device best download and install the "new" driver provided the graphics card is plugged in etc etc. run the installation, it should pick up the card and install succesfully. restart system press and hold numpad del button to enter bios dependant on PC model get into bios settings, look around and find where you can set your primary graphics input and set that option that it points to PCIE (the slot the card is in) and not internal. save and exit bios settings completely. provided the screen is plugged in and secure on the graphics card, you should have picture.

2. On the graphics card should be a sticker with model and serial google that serial number and info as it is and follow steps mentioned in point 1.

3. Check power is plugged correctly onto graphics card from power supply. also with S.L.I

4. Possibly the power source in the machine isn't sufficient and should be upgraded at least 500W and up but make sure so as to not cook your machine.

5. The screen (output device) or cable connectors are damaged damaged, replace it.

6. The graphics card and or capacitors on it are cooked. Buy a new one

I find a little programme called GPUz to also be useful adressing some issues.

Hope this helps... Good Luck

I bought geoforce 8400 but when itunes is playing for 20 minutes the sound frezzes and I need to restart the PC

a "GeForce XXXX" is a type of Video Card. It handles images, graphics, games, etc.

This has nothing to do with your Sound.

Do you plug your speakers into small holes near a bunch of other ports? I would guess Yes, as most computers have "integrated sound".

You could try a $10 PCI Sound Card.

Which is where you plug in an expansion card into your computer, and then use that device for outputting sound to speakers. Kinda like how you have a Video Card plugged in below the other ports.

Besides all of this, you could just have a software issue.
Does sound ever stop when playing music or a game outside of iTunes?
You did not say what version of Windows you have.
You did not say what type of computer, ie. Make, Model,.
Such as a Dell, Dimension, 4300.

Please let us know, Thanks!

Need a graphics card in Dell dimensions 5000 to play fall out 3

It's a common problem with people wanting to customize Dell Dimension PCs. They are a great basic PC but weren't designed to be completely tricked out. The layout for the power supply is a bit different in most of their cases and to upgrade the power supply you usually have to physically alter the case =\ There are afew video cards that have a lower draw, but I'm not sure if they are going to be that great of an upgrade.

Screen went dead, unplugged the graphics card and

So basically you cannot get the pc to POST. Meaning you have just a black screen when you power on the pc, right?

First off, did you attempt to update BIOS before this happened. 90% of the time this is caused by a corrupt bios.

If you did not try to update BIOS before the problem started then try these troubleshooting steps.

1. Full power down. Unplug the power cord from the Power supply. Then hold down the pc power button.
Try to boot the pc.

2. Open the case and reseat the graphics card, hard drive, and RAM.

3. Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots.

4. Set the Cmos jumper to clear. Power up the pc. Power down the PC. Set the Cmos jumper back to normal position, power up the PC.

5. Unplug and replug all the power supply cables.

6. Check the powersupply function. Either by a powersupply voltage checker, put the powersupply in a different pc, or try a different powersupply in the problem computer.

Could be bad ram, motherboard, cpu, powersupply, videocard.

If the video card is suspected to be damaged, try it in a other pc (friend's, mom's or dad's, pentagons' ).

if it is bad, there is your answer.

Card, Graphic, 128, X800, SE need to up grade the new high end

if you dont want to have to upgrade your power supply. your pc only has a 350w in it.
i would suggest the Nvidia 8800 GT if you dont have a budget or the 8800 GS if you dont want to spend too much.
both run 512mb and are superb for gaming. make sure you get some extra cooling in your pc so as not to overheat, these cards put out quite a bit of extra heat.
both are compatible with the dimension 8400.

Card not recognized

the problem is the new card you keep on trying to install, the system is trying to tell you that is not compatible to your computer system

Dimension 8400/Geforce 8600 GT graphics. Monitor in powersave.

Trying another cord would be the first step. After that, make sure that you have the correct drivers for your OS. If it is not the drivers, then check the connection between the the card and the physical output device (the male VGA or HDMI connector).

Leadtech winfast px 7950 gt tdh

The 7950 will have a higher requirement for power than came stock with the machine, you probably need a better power supply to run this card. However Dell needs specific power supply units so you'll need to contact Dell about getting an upgrade!

An upgrade with a non Dell power supply unit is possible but it requires a little tweaking of the case.

Good luck!

Dell computers are hard to upgrade.

hi will

yes these cards uses a lot of power. Check to see if the power supply pushes enough power to run the video card. I think these card needs its own power source so make sure you use a sepearate cable from the powersupply to the video card and not share it with other components.

if you have less than 400w powersupply thne this is morelikely your problem

good luck
