    Last week or so ive been toying around with an asrock motherboard that basically refused to work right. Anyway i put my x800xtpe back into my main system and keep getting the mesage "you have not connected the power cord to the card" , well it something along those lines just the standard message you get when no powers attached. Problem is there is power attached, ive tried the card in both my shuttle and the pc it was in originally and keep getting this message.

    Im asuming that since i get this error the card might not be dead, but at the same time ive tried loads of diffferent molex connectors and keep getting it. Ideas anyone? :confused: :(

    inspect the molex on your card to see its not dammaged

    check the lines on the pcb to the molex

    make sure you have pushed it in all the way

    try a different psu

    use a multimeter to check the molex both psu and gfx carnt remember howto use one others might know

    hope this helps

    is your keyboard light flashing on power up?

    could try resetting your bios to rule it out
