I Have a K8N Neo mobo and a rx800 msi GC. When i hit the power button i get a red flashing message saying GC not conected refer to getting started in the manual. I've had a look at the GC fan and its rotating, can anyone please help me?

Regards
Craig

The maunal for the GC doesn't mention about the yellow socket next to the power supply, should i put something in there?

Thank You
Craig

Bump...

and check that it is correctly seated...

and if you have another graphics card, see if it works.

I've just tried a different GC and that came on no probs.

Sounds as if there is a problem with the other then... time for a return to the outlet from whence it came.

I agree - contact where you purchased it from - if you want to ask experts visit click here

I don't know what type of motherboard you have - your card will be AGP 8x and perhaps 4x - if it is only 8x does your motherboard support this? Are you sure they are compatible?

sorry your motherboard is compatible if only I could remember what I have read!

it needs at least a 350 watt psu - what type of psu is in your system?

it also says always disconnect supplied power cable when system power is off - does not make much sense to me

I would check the forums

Thanks for the reply's i have a 460 watt PSU, so it looks like i'm sending it back to Overclockers then.
Cheers everyone

What yellow socket next to the psu are you referring to?

  georgemac 18:15 02 Oct 2004

there is a yellow socket on the graphics card next to the 4 pin power socket (supplied from the psu). I don'y know what it's for and if craigy has looked in the manual and it does not say I don't know how to find out.

some graphics cards get the psu power supply through a floppy type power connector - don't know if this one has 2 options?
