    ROG G20 GPU Upgrade Help

    My friend bought a GTX 980 and I put it in the system fans were spinning but, we had no picture what so ever.
    But when i hooked it into the integrated Intel HD we would have picture like normal.
    Our setup was slightly different as we were using a 90w laptop style adapter for the small AC adapater slot and a 230w for the larger hook in.

    So the question is do we not have enough power?

    Here is a picture of the GPU -

    You can't use the 90W, you need the 180W that came with the system or the one available online (specifics in the overhaul thread) and with both the 180W and 230W AC Adapters you need to adjust the jumpers (specifics in the overhaul thread).
