Hi there,

have you checked the obvious things.
If your graphic card needs a separate power connector have you plugged it in?
This is either a 6 pin or 8 pin connector actually on the Graphics Card

Have you made the correct power connections to the motherboard?
This would be the 24 pin main ATX connector and either a 4 or 8 pin connector which is usually near the CPU socket.

If you could post back with your system specifications  (PSU, Motherboard, CPU, RAM etc.) it might help with troubleshooting further.
Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.

6850 needs 8 pin cable.The Psu has only one cable with 6 pins.Also an adapter came with mine gcard wich was 6 pin and the other side is 3 pin cable that connects TO the gpu wich of the two must i use?

By the sound of things you have a cheap and nasty PSU there and I would advise replacing it as soon as possible by a quality one. Seasonic, Corsair, Enermax or somthing like that and make sure that it is at least 650W to be safe.

It is all in the manual and most connections will only fit in one place and the correct way around.

It might be a good idea to look through this review: http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.php/topic,5704.msg45814.html#msg45814 where you can see some pictures of how to build a PC.

You haven't said which motherboard you have but don't worry, the review is for an AMD system but the connections are pretty much the same on all motherboards and graphic cards.
