Re: something is broken, but not sure what
Okay well if I recall correctly the 6800 AGP cards require a separate Molex power connector on the card because they couldnít draw enough through the AGP slot. Some, if not all of the PCIe 6800 cards didnít require a separate power source.
You donít mention exactly which card you have but if itís AGP it will need that extra power. If it does then make sure it didnít come loose. Try reseating the card again just to be sure. Also when you power the system on does the fan on the card spin?
