Problems with video cards

Q: I tried to install an 8800 PCI-Express video card (or similar), but when I power up the computer, the graphics card fan spins at maximum speed, and I get a black video screen (computer does not boot).

A: You will need to connect the PCI Express power connector to the video card. Or, your computer may be not compatible with that video card.


Q: I have a problem with my PCI-E video card. I get a beeping sound, computer does not boot, I have a black/blank screen, or the fan is at the full blast and does not slow down.

A: Check the PCI-E power supply connector to the video card. Or, your power supply cannot handle the required power (if you used a Molex to PCI-E power connector).
