Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook ?

After installing graphics card, Computer won't turn on ...

\015 I just installed a new graphics card that required plugging in some extra power cables.After installing, my computer won't turn on ...at all. The mobo indicates (with green light) that power is indeed being supplied.Initially, I hooked it up to 2 4-pin cables. Then I noticed that the PSU had a spare PCI-E 6-pin output and switched to that.I reinstalled the old card, and the computer still did not turn on.Normally, I would call up my IT buddy, but he's not available (get better dude). Hope someone here has an idea. Thanx :)\015

Answers :

If you remove the upgrade video card, will the system power on? If so, it may be that the power supply in the system is insufficient to power the card.
