ASUS GTX760‑DC2OC‑2GD5 LED stays red after being plugged in

I just bought an ASUS GTX760‑DC2OC‑2GD5. the LED on it stays red after I plug it into the motherboard and connect the power adapter using the ASUS supplied 6 pin to 8 pin adapter for power. I tried taking it out and reinstalling it and got the same results. With it still red I tried turning the computer on and it never kicked the monitor.

I currently have an ASUS P5G41T-M LX Plus motherboard. My current video card is an Gigabyte built card Nvidia GeForce 9600 GT; I don't remember the exact model though. It uses a 6 pin power adapter and it works fine. I have a 700W power supply.

The motherboard is a bit old now, so I'm wondering since the card is PCIe x16 3.0 and motherboard slot is PCIe x16 1.1 (I think), could this cause some incompatibility?
Does any have any ideas why the new card is not working?

Thank you,
Mike

The red led indicates that the plug isn't in securely or isn't providing power correctly. Check the way you are plugging in pcie connector of power supply into power source of the gpu. You need 2 connectors both containing 6-pins, then insert them both into plug of graphics card. Also, check the sticker of your power supply and make sure under +12v you have at least 30A value specified for current.

Thank you brarboy. Plugging in both sides is the answer.

I finally got it working.

What we have is a old 4-pin power connector feeding a 6-pin PCI express power feeding an 8-pin PCI express power connector. I tried plugging in 2 of the 6-pin connecters with no luck. I then tried to plug in both of the 4-pin connector to 1 6-pin connector. That 6-pin connector feeds 1 8-pin connector, which feed the video card.
