Hi,

I recently had problem starting up my computer. The computer won't turn on. After testing and searching, I located the problem orginated from my video card. Once I plug in the power supply adapter the computer won't start, however if I unplug the adapter the computer start. Currently I'm using a Geforce 2MX and the computer works fine.

Does anyone know what could be the problem and how could I fix it??

Thx

Power supply adapter? Do you have it on a rail by its self? I did that and mine started working a lot better.

if u mean to use a seperate line to power the video card, I've tried that and still the same.

Thats what I meant a seperate line from the power supply. So when it is not plugged in the computer will start fine though. When it boots does it give you an error saying the card does not have enough power?
