Thanks for any help you can give. The 12 volt rail thing I'm not sure about. Cables can only go in one way round and drives and motherboards no longer need jumpering. Help please solved My laptop doesn't detect nvidia graphic card anymore. check over here

This build lasted two years breaking down only this February owing to what I strongly suspect are dodgy drivers from nvidia.
