it doesn't matter if fan is working or not...

if you dont see anything on monitor ( turn off-like) then your videocard is blown OR lack of power....

yesterday i blown my fx5200 (shitty one) and 7800gs is not working because i forget about power plug


ps. post your speification to make clear...

hhhmmm...

sub $20 powmax clone

sounds like you went with the chiefmax, it probably has about 300w tied up on the 3.3v and 5v rails, only leaving about 200w on the 12v rail...

if not, then I have no idea what the problem is...

Are the molex (6 pin) plugs from seperate leads?, kind defeats the purpose if they're on the same lead (rail)

Define the beep, 1 long, two short??

@ cma, mate, it doesn't mean his gpu is fried at all, you need to think before posting.
