  1. ok im sure the 9600 pro radeon is not that great but i have brought one and have installed it based on computer manufactureres specifications.it requires a power supply and have connected it but the system doesnt seem to recognise that there is a aftermarket graphics card there.i cant remove the old output for the monitor either as it is a small plug at the back that seems to b soldered directly onto the motherboard......
    and ideas or help would be greatly appreciated

    u did not say what the computer is, but it sounds like the old output to me like it is onboard video. go in the bios and see if in there if u can disable it, and set the bios to use the pcix16 slot for video, it may called peg.

    also the card has a power supply input and when i connected it and turned on the computer the fan didnt start or anything to indicate that there was power going to it
