My System Specs

Default Did I damage my video card?

Hi guys,

Been playing with the internal power connectors of my desktop recently to see if I had any spare 8-pin power connectors for a new video card. I just noticed that in the process of fiddling with the power cables, one of the two 6-pin connectors for my 5850 card had become disconnected. As far as I can tell, it's been like that for an entire day, during which my computer has been on and I've played a couple hours of Skyrim.

I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary. In fact, if I hadn't just popped the case open again to check if I had any spare SATA power cables, I would not have noticed the cable loose at all.

Did I damage the video card in anyway?
