Supplemental links which may be of use:


The following hideous monstrosity contains what appears to be the manual 
for this card and others by the same manufacturer. You can read the 
first few pages, then about halfway down after the download/join links 
it says "35 pages left unread, continue reading". If you click that you 
can read the rest without signing up.


Of course you could just sign up if you wanted to download it. I 
couldn't find the manual anywhere better. I'm not sure the manual helps, 
it doesn't seem to say you need the additional power (makes no mention 
of it at all), but the specs of the card could come in useful for the 
diagnostic process.
