Have you verified that the special power connection is unnecessary on your card? I'm not familiar with any AGP cards which need the small 2 or 4 pin power cables, (usually they're PCI Express cards), but I'll guess there may be some out there that need such.. The power cable will be connected to the card and then must be plugged into the small corresponding pin slots on the motherboard.
Hope this helps.
Hi, looking for help!
Can anyone tell me why i am unable to install Graphics card. Took old card out of pc and replaced with new one however after installing new card a message is displayed saying that a power connection is unplugged, however i have triple checked the connections and there is no problem with the molex connections. This is the only part of start up i can access. The screen stays with the error message as soon as i power on the pc and i am unable to to do anything else. I have ATI radeon (AGP).
