Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have a kt400 dragon motherboard on the top of the agp slot theres a plug-in that looks like a power supply wire would plug in there, is that what its for? or is it for a agp card to plug into or sumthin?


Answers :

Hi,

That is your ATX 12volt 4 pin connector. Some video cards need extra power so that is where this plug comes in. A plug from your power supply plugs into it. If everything is good with your graphics then you don't need that extra power.
