So my problem is that I have built my first computer, and today I recieved the last two pieces I needed to complete the build. I got my video card and my monitor in the mail from Newegg.com. No problem, insert the video card to the AGP slot in the MOBO, hook the monitor up and press the power key. Presto everything is working great except for one thing. The Video card has a 4 pin power connector, so i plug in power to this thing from my psu and start the computer back up, but the monitor is blank. So I shut down, unplug the power from the video card and start back up. PERFECT its working again, so I begin installing windows and formatting the drive, its all working fine. I install my drivers for the motherboard, the sound devices but the its time to install drivers for the video card. I get the drivers installed and restart the computer and after booting up and getting into windows it tells me that my video card has insufficient power and it drops my video settings. So shut down, plug power back into the video card and start back up....what a surprise NO VIDEO AGAIN!!! But the speaker from the computer says that Im trying to OC my processor?!?!?!?! When in reality I havent done ANYTHING in the BIOS to OC my processor. So I shut back down, disconnect power from the video card and try to start back up, only now the computer wont start. So I turn off the PSU and wait for about 10 seconds. I turn the PSU back on and hit power, and for a brief second everything turns on then immediately dies. I have done this over and over and over. I have tried everything I know...Im wondering if the MOBO or the CPU is fried. I dont know what to do, any pointers? I really hope I didnt drop a bunch of money on a paper weight.
