I forgot to plug the power into my graphics card at first and I got a message on screen saying something like "You have not properly powered the graphics card" but the computer turned on. So I plugged in it using the 2 x 4 pin to 6 pin adapter and tried to turn on the computer. I pressed the button but nothing happened.
Could that happen because my power supply doesn't carry enough amps on the 12 V rail? Could it be a problem with the graphics card (maybe the power connector on it)?
I was thinking it was the power supply and would buy this one if it's still on sale tomorrow http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817139005
2.66 Ghz AMD Phenom X4
4 GB Ram
1 GB Radeon HD 4850
PSU - Okia 550W (24 A on +12 V rail....I've read I need anywhere from 24-35 to be stable)
I'm just not sure what's wrong....Any help would be appreciated
