7750 connect to power supply?

Hello, can anyone tell me if the Radeon 7750 needs to be connected to the power supply with a 6-pin or 8-pin? I've been having troubles where I'd insert the card into its place and close everything up along with connecting everything. Whenever I try to install the driver for the card it gets an error where it cant find it. I'm not to sure, but I think the card isn't powering up or something so that's why it cant find it. Help me?

  1. The 7750 does not come with a AUX PCI-Express power connection you just plug it into the slot. A couple of things firstly did you install the latest driver from AMD's website. Also can you list the following

    VIDEO CARD: Radeon 7750
    Windows Version:

    If your computer is a store bought retail computer please provide
    Company Name:
    Model Number:
    Version of windows:
  2. I'm setting up the card for my sister so her computer is currently off, but we have the same type of computer so the information should be closely realted.

    Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7300 @ 2.66GHz 2.67GHz
    RAM: 3 GB
    Windows Vista Home Premium
    520-Watt ATX Power Supply made by Dynex
  3. Your computer will handle it just fine. I don't really care for the power supply. Dynex is a best buy brand more of a cheap off brand. They are fairly low on newegg on there tier list. However with that being said you should be fine with a 7750.
  4. Ok thanks, but now there's another problem. The card still isnt being recognized by the computer so I can't install the drivers through the cd installation nor can I find the correct driver for the 7750. Can you explain why it might be that the card isn't being found as new hardware?

    I would go through there website and grab the drivers I will supply the drivers for your card.

    here you go the newest drivers I would install these. First thing you should do when you buy a video card or anything that comes with a cd w/drivers is either ignore it or toss it.
