Hello

I just build a new system and recieved all the parts as of yesterday. I installed all components and everything
fires up including my ATI Radeon 4580 card. I unforuntely get no video on my ACER montior. The card's fan will speed
up to it's highest settings for about 1 sec. It then sounds like the card is not getting enough power.
The fan will throttle up and down and 2 small LED lights on the circuit will blink in unison every time the fan throttles down. I have a 700 watt OZC power supply. I have reseated the 6 pin modular cable and the card itself several times.
Even when i take off the 6 pin modular power cable and let it run off the power from the PCI Express X 16 and fan still throttles up and down.
It's like the card is not getting enough power. I have found 1 other post on a different forum that shows what the codes mean next to the 2 LED lights.
I'm not sure if the card is DOA or if I got something hooked up incorrectly. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks

Some of your high end cards require 2 6 pin connectors, Im not sure the exact brand of yours since you didnt post it, but Id check your documentation for that, but it sounds like its either a problem with the video card or the power supply. Could be either or. Do you have a different power supply or a different system you can try the card in?

alright, that card does indeed only require one 6 pin PCI_E power connector, darn I was hoping it was something easy like that. Does the computer boot up at all? and do you have another video card (an older one, doesnt matter what type of card as long as its PCI or PCI express) that you can throw in there and see if it will boot up then? Also, I noticed that this is a modular power supply, are you sure the cable is hooked up and plugged all the way into both the video card and the power supply and has a good connection? If it isnt plugged all the way into the power supply the video card will not recieve power. Im not trying to say your incompetent or anything, if its not all the way in this is something that can happen to anyone, it can get bumped or slightly pulled out when installing other components.
