Make the call. You paid for it.
I recently purchased this computer:
and attempted to pair it with this GPU:
The card comes with a Y-adapter that converts six-pin PCIe plugs into two four-pin Molex plugs for the supplemental power. The power supply in the computer has two free Molex plugs on it, but doesn't have any six-pin plugs.
The problem I'm having is that, as per the manual's instructions, I put the card in and plugged the supplemental power cables in (after cutting the power and draining the power supply, of course), turned on the computer, and I get no display whatsoever from either the default VGA port or the new card. Not even the bootup screen is visible. Removing the card and plugging into the onboard causes it to boot normally.
I'm running Windows XP Essential (32-bit) and using S3 onboard drivers at the moment.
I think the problem is with the power supply, but I really don't know, and I'm getting frustrated here.
