PNY 9800gtx+ push power and... nothing?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, this is my first post and i've looked around for other people's issues with the 9800gtx+ and couldn't find anything on this specific issue.

Problem is that when i run the system with an 8500gt it runs fine but as soon as i put in the 9800gtx+ it doesn't even attempt to turn on. So i guess my question is... is the card dead or my 500 watt psu not enough power for it? The card originally did run with a 585 watt psu which it killed and ran with under average performance at that.

System specs are:

AMD Athlon II x4 640
8gb ddr3
500gb hdd
1 dvdrw and 1 bdre
500w psu
pny 9800gtx+ (defunct?)

Thanks for reading! Just want to make sure it's the psu that's not enough and not the card being dead. I'd much rather just buy a more powerful psu and live happily ever after for now.

have you plugged in pci-e power wire and does the psu have enough amps to power it?

will fill in my sig now but i now know for sure that it is the card that is dead. I thought i threw out the old 585w psu that I originally had the card running with. Turns out I didn't and found it, tried it, and it still works fine in a system without that card. Contacted PNY by email a couple minutes ago to see if I can't get the card replaced as it is still under warranty. Thanks!
