I need a new video card to replace my aging GeForce 8600...

Im thinking about the Radeon 5450, but whats the power requirement on this?

The machine is a Pentium 4 3.6ghz, stock 305w CPU. Runs the old card fine, but just wanted to know if a new card would draw more power, and therefore need a new PSU?

P.S i dont really care *too* much about performance, it shouldnt be any worse, right? The main reason I want to upgrade is to get HDMI...

On second thoughts, might go for a different card. Its like 50% slower in all the benchmarks!

It could be a backlight or inverter failure. Try unpluging the power cord, remove the battery and then hold the power button for 30 to 60 seconds. Attach the power cord and try starting up.
