  1. Default GF 6200 256mb Problem/Advice pls

    I was given a evga 6200 w/ 256mb which I thought would do well to replace my GF 4 ti4200. Well Ive been wrong. After I installed i keep getting this when windows starts. POWER PROBLEM INDICATOR "To protect your hardware from potential damage or causing a potential system lockup, the graphics processor has lowered its performance to a level that allows continued safe operations."

    Now I dont see any freaking extra power addapter on the card. WTH?

    Sounds like heat problems, though the mentioned word "Power" has me worried that your computer could be giving up the goast or is under powered(though unlikely). Did you uninstall the old drivers and install the noew ones when you installed the new card?

    Ah.. There was an extra power input conection on the card. I just didnt see it clearly the first time I installed It. All is well now.

    I dont remember there being a power conector on my 6200 but I could be wrong. Glad to hear that figured it out.
