[SOLVED]No display when default grpahics is PCI-E, new graphics card.

Hello, I am trying to use my new Radeon HD 6850, but I am not getting any display when I set the default Graphics to PCI-Express. I am sure that I am plugging my monitor into the graphics card, although I had to get a DVI-VGA adapter because my monitor is VGA, but the graphics card is DVI. The desktop curently has a Leonite2 (P5LP-LE) motherboard, with 2 GB of RAM, and an Intel Core 2 Duo proccessor at 2.00 GHz. What is the problem? I will check my PSU right now.

    Yes, it is. I saw on another thread that there was a power slot near the CPU that gives more power to the PCI-E. Is this so on the P5LP-LE?
  3. the power slkot near the cpu on the upper left is for the cpu. that needs to be plugged in for the computer to boot.

    edit: oem mobo, im trying to figure out whatrs what on the mobo

    is t he power supply not plug into that port, if not, plug the 4 pin cpu connector to that port


    alternativelty, plug the display back into motherboard, and go into bios to switch the primary graphics to Pci-e instead of onboard, shut donw computer then reseat gpu.

    That might be the problem. I see the 4-pin connector, but I don't see the slot. Can you shed some light on where it is?

    Cpu connector 4 or 8 pin
    look on your motherboard where the processor at should see it

    There isn't any slot to the bottom left of the CPU. I think it might already be occupied.
  10. Wait, I see it on the picture. The motherboard was flipped for some reason, so on the picture, I was looking on the opposite side. Let me check now.
  11. video card wont come on if your still using the stock hp power supply. there 200-300w units and wont have the amp rating for a large card. your going ot have to look at the lower end 7000 cards and 600 cards for one to work with stock ps or you have to replace it.
  12. The 4-pin slot is already plugged in. What is the problem?

    We did buy a new power supply, because the stock one blew out during a power outage. Let me check the Voltage.
  14. The model of the PSU is Thermaltake TR-500 500w PSU. Is that enough wattage?
  15. pen found online that there a bios limit of video cards. the video cards cant have more then 512m of ram.
  16. SOLVED! Had to switch the adapter to the other DVI port. Thanks for all your help! :)
