Most newer cards

by mjd420nova In reply to the intel 82945g Express ...

The newer generation cards need external power because of the extra memory burden and the traces on the motherboard weren't meant to carry that much current. Short of roasting the motherboard and the connectors too, look into an adapter that will mate to an empty drive power plug, kind of like the adapter for the older 1.44 mb floppy drives.
