my supply is ATX-350PNF, i want to be sure if it's the power lacking or the videocard is not working. Or just i'm not plugging the card right? I noticed my old Nvidia Geforce4 MX 440 with AGP8x 128mb has different "number" of pins(separated by 3) while the ATI has pins, separated by 2 or something like that...
here is my old:
if your mb in your pre built uses a nvidia chipset then you have to use a nvidia video card. it an issue with older nvidia chipset.
if your mb has onboard intel chipset it may be using the onboard chipset as the first video device. if it is install the drivers for the new video card then reboot. when rebooting go inot the bios and set the gpu as the first boot device.
sorry forgot to post my mb and pc specs - nforce2 mb: http://www.jetway.com.tw/jw/motherboard_view.asp?produc...
768MB ddr400 ram, AMD Athlon 2200+ 1.8Ghz processor
So i can only use Nvidia graphics card on this mb and i screwed buying the ATI?
the fan of the videocard barely spins, i still think its a power issue
