Having physically installed the card, and rebooted the PC it will power up and the boot screen appears on the monitor but within approximately 30 seconds the PC just switches off/ cuts out. Even if I interrupt the boot by pressing delete and enter the Bios settings, the PC still cuts out after approx 30 seconds.
I checked the settings for my Motherboard (ECS Geforce 6100PM M2 V2.0) and it states that after installing a PCI-e card it will automatically detect and disable the on-board graphics controller, which I presume it is doing as I do get to see the boot screen on the monitor.
So I am now left wondering whether I should have carried out any other task before installing the card. Or is the issue that the PSU (WinPower ATX450W) is not up to the job? Or maybe even if the card is compatible with my motherboard.
Any advice is will be gratefully received.
Cheers in advance of any replies.
