broken1i Posted September 3, 2009 Share Posted September 3, 2009 I recently bought a new video card (ati 4890). It requires 2 PCI-E connectors. I had one PCI-E modular cable and used two 4 pin cables to connect the other PCI-E cable. After I turned my computer on, I knew something was wrong immediately. It took a few seconds to power on when it usually turned on instantly. Anyhow, I opened the case to see if anything was lose. After that, the computer never turned on. Two days after this incident I bought a new mobo because I thought that was the problem and I was upgrading anyway. I also bought a psu tester just in case. I looked up tech support and did the paperclip trick with the fan and the fan powered on but very slowly. To be sure I'm going to use the tester. The mobo came in yesterday. I hooked everything up and still nothing. :eek: At this point I've almost lost hope. I don't know if I'm confusing you (really bad at explaining things) but I'd really appreciate any help.
