  1. hi,
    My graphics card recently died on me and so i decided to purchase the geforce gtx260 maxcore.
    After plugging it into the coreect slot and turning on my PC , my monitor remains blank,and the cards fan starts and stops about every 2 seconds or so.
    the PC is a Packard bell Iextreme x9610
    IS the card compatible with this computer?

    any help would be apprieciated :)

    Did you plug in the external power connectors on the card to the power supply? Does your power supply meet the recommended requirements of the card?

    yes the power connectors are plugged in.maybe the next step then is to try a more powerful power supply?
