3. i have four video cards
1 i know is dead and replaced
2 the one in the system RZ44G
3 new one with a molex?...never seen this on a Video Card
4 the Video Card on the Machine i'm typing on RZ22G that was upgraded when 1 went down
Oh that's a lot tougher one. I'd say the video card was trying to draw its entire current from the molex. Unplugging it while it's trying to draw high current is bad for a PSU. Not sure how much damage this would have on other components. Obviously the PSU is still working, but could have been damaged.

This is one of the cases that I'd unplug everything from the wall, monitor included, then push the power button on the computer to drain the power from the capacitors. Wait a few minutes, then plug everything back in and test. If it still doesn't work, then I'd test each individual component in another working computer till you've narrowed it down.

Just do bare essentials. Motherboard, PSU, Ram, CPU, Video Card, and monitor. Leave everything else unplugged. If you aren't having any beeps then I don't think too much could be damaged. Highly doubt the CPU is damaged.

lol yeah master chief, I love halo. Halo 1 and 2 mostly.
i do have another PSU on the RZ22G but i don't wanna mess with it the way the night has been going...since the Video Card is X1650 512MB, would i need a better power supply anyhow or should i try the one in the machine i'm currently on


i feel the same way about Call of Duty, COD4 is Epic...MW2 failed but was fun and had the "addicting factor," Black Ops is good and for skilled players but that addiction factor isn't there and maybe too balanced of a game

this sounds like a high possibility and makes a lotta sense

sounds good, will press Power button for caps to drain

bought a new Power Supply today but come to find out, Sony has a "special" white, black, blue with a brown connector on their Power Supplies

luckily i have one from a machine i'm selling and also to the one off the RZ-22G

powers on and fan spins but won't boot


i have decided to take the whole thing apart and this is my 1st time ever doing so

i got the Motherboard out and if someone can possibly point out where the problem might be, i will gladly take pics

okay what you want to do first is test the mobo fr when it would oroginally work see if you get anything considering this is your first time doi g this. go with the basics. cpu 1 stick of ram psu and make sure gpu has power in order to have a screen show up.


was the mother oard working after you forgot to plug in the molex to the x1650?? did you try testing the gpu on another computer?

get back to us

good news...i was able to get it fixed by a local Professional who is absolutely awesome...found him on Craigslist and he went above and beyond...if anyone lives in CO, i would definitely check with him for any Repair, builds, etc. etc.

glad i found this Site...now just gotta find a Video Card
