Question about swapping video cards!
Hey new here, just registered!
I have a HP XP8400 workstation. I bought a new video card to replace my Nvidia Quadro fx 1500. I bought the Nvidia Quadro fx 4600. Weighs significantly more, but the pin connectors are the same. So I take out the 1500 and install the 4600. Pop the case back on, plug the cord back in, etc etc. Hit the power button and I hear a shrieking beep. One long beep and 6 short beeps. I looked up online and it said one long beep and 8 short beeps means a video card failure and to make sure it's installed properly. Thought that was weird, so I take the case back off and recheck everything, and seems to be connected properly. My question is: Is it a power supply issue? Has anyone else run into this problem?
