HELP- EVGA 6200 not working

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My cousin has XP and bought a PCI evga 6200 geforce card. Every time we boot the computer it restarts by itself, no BSOD. It either restarts at the Welcome screen, or we can stay logged on for about one minute before it restarts. We contacted EVGA many times and received several different responses.
The first time, the representative told us it was a problem with our harddrive or RAM.
The second time, we were told that it was the power supply. He said the +12V output should be at least 18A, while my cousin's was only 14A.
The last time we called, they said there was a problem with the card or the PCI slot (we tried installing it in every PCI slot he had).

Can you please help us.

Not enough power from power supply. Upgrade to a 300W DiabloTek power supply and you should be fine. Also you already figured it out... You need 18A not 14A.
