Nvidia Geforce Mx4000 Fried My Motherboard?

I got it up and running, everything seemed to be working fine. It hadn't been right since a nvidia driver update in February which started all the computer trouble I've been having. That done I turned everything off unplugged the cables and installed the graphics card. It only needs one 4 pin 12v rail. have a peek here

Does it just need a 4 pin in there? fantastik250Jun 13, 2012, 2:13 PM +1^Correct, you need to use the 8pin and 6pin together. Got as far as stripping everything down and reseating the processor and CPU cooler (with a fresh coat of thermal paste after cleaning off the old one with TIMMS cleaner). navigate here Good luck man!

I did check this last night though. The 8 pin.

All these problems are almost enough to put me off building myself.

He was a proper gent, didn't even charge me as he said he couldn't fix or precisely locate the source of my previous problem. Is it safe to try another mx4000 in the xp machine?

It's really pretty hard to go wrong when putting one together these days. I'll also try and make sure the powerplug clips down properly. But yeah otherwise strip it back to basics and try firing it up with just the CPU seated in the board. this contact form Connect power (24 and 4 pin) and power-on - do you get any LEDs/lights (even if it's just the network port)?? .
