My computer with Win XP has had for 10 years a Visiontek HD 2400 Pro 256 AGP the video card. It has ran fine for years. Recently I accidentally turned the computer off, now when I hit the power on button instead of booting normally a message in red flashes saying
 
 
"You have not connected the power cable to your video card. Please refer to the 'C settings started guide' for proper hardware installation.
 
The computer won't boot so I cant check drivers etc. This happened once before and I cleaned the card contacts several times and pulled it out and put it in a few times, it finally worked. This time it won't boot no matter what.

Sounds like it's time for a new one. MIght want to try it in another computer before condemning it though.

ok thanks. The issue with buying a new card is I just use this machine for storage of photos basically. I replaced it with a lap top running win 7.  Hate to spend lots of money on a new card. Will any "  cheapo" AGP card work for what I am using it for ie no gaming, no internet browsing?

If all your doing is storing pics on it and not doing any media intensive then a cheap video card would be fine. It doesn't have to be AGP, if you really want to save money you could just pick up an old PCI video card and that would get the job done just as well for what your doing.
