Yes, both of those jacks need to be plugged in. You can buy a molex -> PCI-E power adapter from newegg for a few bucks. Just make sure your power supply has enough wattage to power both of those cards.

ATI Radeon X1950 XTX 512MB just bought 2 of these cannot get crossfire enabled. there is what appears to be a power input on the tail of these cards. I only have one plug in off my power supply that...

Each of those cards require 300 Watts for themselves so yes, that power connector must be always plugged in.
You will need a new power source with at least 800 watts rated power and a good quality - if it doesn't have at least 4 power connectors for the video card don't buy it. Pick one

Monitor screen is all red

Try updating the drivers first. . First uninstall the previous drivers and software. Reboot, and install new drivers from the website provided. If you continue to get the red screen it is more than likely a dying video card, which you will need to replace.

My ati x1950 xtx! FAULT LIGHT!! ??

What i recommend is take the card out your computer and see if it boots up.....if it does boot up then you know for sure that its the card or not...if it is the card it will all depend on what sha happened to it...if it has been struck by lightening then you household insurance should cover it to be replaced if you have household cover....but if it has just started that for no reason take it to the people you have baught it from so they can do a check on the card...please feel free to get hold of me if you need assistance

Hi guys got a slight problem with my gfx card. I cant get the tv-out to work ive search all over for a solution but cant find one. its a ati radeon x1650 512mb it has vga, dvi and s-video out...

You need to use ati catylst control panel.

You can also download and use at tray tools.

There is a setting force tv detection. Sometimes this needs to be enabled to work properly. Also make sure3 that your desktop resolution is not too high for your television. I have a plasma tv so I can use 720 and 1080 p but my x1950 could only use a max of 1024x768 resolution.
