New PSU?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
MY 8800 GTS has been unable to start up into the log in screen, because of bad connection power. I thought the card was broken, but then i inserted my old card which needed no connection to the card and it still said the same thing and the thing rebooted. Everything in my PC is running like the fans and the fan on the 8800 GTS. So is my PS broken or what? Oh I took the thing apart, I think I broke it, but it was after the bad connection occured.
Any suggestions? Is 600watts good enough to handle an 8800 GTS?

It is quite possible that you fried your PCI-e port...

(I did the same with an AGP slot. )

There could be a short in the power supply, do you have a spare PCIE or PCI card to test in it?

What brand and how many amps are in the +12v rail? I think this would be a motherboard issue.
