I turned my computer off and when I came back to turn it on I got this message, you have not connected the power extension cable to your raden 9800 video card. Can someone tell me what I need to do to fix the problem.

Thank you

Open your case - find the video card and check the 6-pin (or 8 pin) power cable that goes from the powersupply to the video card -- chances are it is not seated properly so has come loose if so then reconnect it .

This is the first time it has done this. How do I know which slot is my video card?

The video card is the one that has the monitor cable connected to it !! and there should be a plug on the card for a 6 pin PCI-e power cable to be plugged into it. Like shown in this pic
