does your video card require a seperate power cable from the power supply? if so, try switching cables.

if you dont have the cables on there, i bet it has something to do with the video card or card slot.

what do you mean by does the vid card have to have sep power wires. i dont know. im running a nvidia 6800 ultra 256. i turned the voltage up one spot for default in the bios. damm thing just popped up the message again, saying its not getting enough power. didnt even touch it this time. ill try and run just the vid card on one set of wires coming out of the ps. and run everything else on the other set.

well put my vid card on its own wire . seems to be working right now. for some reason all my settings in the bios went back to default. maybe that is what was wrong, i dont know. it was set as pci for primary video. my card is agp. will see, hopefully it wont act up again.
