I put in my evga 9800 gtx+ card into my new computer. It didn't have the right cables so I bought and used a 15 pin SATA to Dual 4 pin Molex power adapter to connect it to my computer. When I turn on the computer, nothing comes up on the monitor.
My guess is that the problem is my power supply. I have a Bestec Atx0300d5wb (I believe 300w).
The puzzling part is that the graphics card actually worked with my old computer which I believe had a weaker power supply. It had an Atx-250.
My question is: What is the problem? Is it my graphics card (which could possibly be broken) or my power supply?
If the problem is my power supply, what is a cheap one I can buy that is compatible with my card?
I connected the power from the PSU to the card. However, I don't know how to hook the monitor cable to the card. It seems like there are any places where I can place it into the card. I'm very bad with computers, I'm sorry.
This means I have to buy a DVI to D-Sub adaptor. Yes?
I have a NVidia GeForce video card bought from www.palit.biz. The problem is when I connect my monitor to it, nothing is seen in my monitor and actually I've tried the same model to replace it but same thing happened. I've tried also to see if the monitor cables are something unscrewed or not fully plugged but nothings wrong. What is the problem sir? Pls help me..
