I bought a graphics card a PNY geforce 6600
It requres a 300wat power suplly according to the box.
I followed the instruction put the card in the computer nd then powered on.
For a second everything cameon fans spinned, lights came on. then they went off.

Now that the card is out it still wont come on.

Hi,

check all the connections from the psu to the motherboard, you could have knocked something loose.
Check that the ram is seated and is not partially out of the dimm socket
Make sure the cpu fan is connected to the motherboard

What exactly happens when you try to power on with the card out? does the computer show a post screen? can you enter bios?

What is the name brand and model of the computer or if its a custom build please list its specs.

Ok its working now, I dunno why I didn't do anything different but what happened was that when I pluged it in and started it began to act like it always did then is shut off. when i tried to start it without it after that it did exactly nothing.

Half hour later i tried powering again it worked. I put card back in powered on it worked. I have no clue what happened.

I whould still like to know what happed to see if I need to take some sort of preventitive actions

Not sure, it sounds like a loose connection on something, I would run the computer for awhile if problems arise it could be the psu is weak or inadequate
