MY question is that I have a Nvidia GeForce 4 in my computer and it doesnt work correctly. I think that it is because my motherboard says not to use any cards over 1.5v. Is there any way to attach a power adapter or something to the card that would get more power to it?

It's an easy mistake to make, In answer to your question: No. Does your Motherboard support AGP? Because that is the key source of power for a GeForce 4, you will need AGP 4x or above, for that Graphics card. On some graphics cards, a secondary power source is required, but not on yours. I think the problem is, either your MB dosen't support AGP or it's not enabled. The Solutions, Get a new Motherboard or Enable AGP in the BIOS.
