Can anyone recommend me a graphics card that will support games like Left 4 Dead 2? My current graphics card is an NVIDIA GeForce 7025 with 2GB of dedicated graphics memory and 256MB of dedicated video memory. It's integrated into the motherboard so I don't know if removing it would be a problem. Would it play L4D2 or will I have to get a new graphics card?

If your adapter bundled requires 2 molex plugs in you'll need exactly that. In some cases the wire will require two different cables to be used so it's not pulling all the power from the same rail. I would say try disconnecting items to test the 2 molex connections first before going too deep into messing with the bios. It's just a case where there isn't sufficient power to power the entire board with a single input.
My experience is a little too limited to provide better advice.
I guess you could look at the back of the card and the end of the cable to see if all the little pins are O.K.
Maybe look at the motherboard manufactures homepage and see if they have some newer drivers for the board?

Ok hiigaran and Randome, I've installed the drivers and it hasn't helped. Other than a lack of power what could the problem be?
Edit: If it's any help the fan works but there's no display.

So what would the lack of power be down to? My PSU is 500W, so it should be able to handle it.

If it looks like it's meant to have 2 instead of 1 then maybe, but it doesn't really make all that much sense, because it's not like it would instantly need maximum power just to turn on.

So would the lack of power be down to only one of the molexs on the 4 pin to 6 pin adapter being plugged in?

The on board graphics should turn off on its own. It's probably because if a lack of power. Either that, or it's a software problem. My old PC didn't want to work at all either until I used the on board graphics to go the video card manufacturers homepage and got a different driver for the card.
The graphics card just will not work. I have it all setup with it plugged into the PCI-E and the power cable is connected (with only one of the molexs since the other one has problems), but when I plug the VGA into the card (with an adapter) the monitor shows no picture. Is it because I only have one molex plugged into the adapter? Is it because I have to disable the on board graphics card first? Is it anything else?
