PCIe card not detected

I just installed a new PCIe video card in an AMI Olympus IV motherboard running AMI bios and Win 2000pro. I have a 350w power supply, the fan on the video card powers on but nothing in windows. The card tested ok on a different system.

Which video card ...one that requires a separate PSU connector or a bigger PSU.

Have you tried contacting XFX Tech Support ?

In reply to: Video card

There's no quick way for shoppers/potential buyers to get complete info ... especially manuals for XFX video cards. They don't post their manuals to the WEB for review or download .... you have to have a serial number or product code off the card itself

I just complained to XFX because they don't post any of the PSU requirements on the WEB ...they just put it on the retail product itself. Doesn't help online shoppers learn about the XFX products.
Let me put it this way ...if they're too lazy to put such info on their WEB for review prior to purchase, they won't on any list of GPUs I'll consider.
