I'm a little baffled on what's going on and hoping someone can shed some light... I bought a couple things for xmas to upgrade my little brothers PC and everything works fine except for the video card I bought him. I had installed 2gbs of ram and a new power supply to work with the video card however when I put in the card the computer turns on but nothing loads up. There's no beeps and the monitor doesnt even turn on. I put the card into my pc just to make sure it wasnt the card and it works fine for my pc so the card checks out. The video card is a EVGA 8600gt 256mb ddr3 and the power supply is 500w which i think is plenty for this card. Basic specs for the pc are 2.8ghz, 3gb ram And the power supply is a APEVIA ATX-CW500WP4 i believe 12v1 -16a and 12v2 - 18a.
