Can anyone tell me what the card edge connector on the top of a
512MB HP/Asus nVIDIA GeForce 8600GT DVI-
I/HDMI/TV-out PCI-E x16 Graphics Card
This card is in a PC I am working on, but the default motherboard video is being used, and I cannot get the nVidia card to work (this is on an HP Pavilion M926of).
I activated the PCIE-16 slot as the primary video card in bios but when it reboots, the monitor doesnt see any signal at all - the power indicator just blinks. I wind up having to pull the card to get the system back up.
There is nothing connected to the top-edge connector so I was wondering if it is a required power header or something.
