Question How can I use a 290w power supply to power an Nvida tesla v100

This is my first post here. I want to thank all of you for all of the answers to so many things that I have gotten from lurking and googling over the years..

I have a precision 5810 work station with an 825w psu. I would like to power on an Nvidia tesla v100 to test that it works. My only cpu power spot is a 10 pin. So I picked up an old dell 290w psu from salvage hoping to power the gpu on it's own. It has a button on the back that turns it on when held. However, when I power on the pc, and plug the 8 pin cpu cord from the second psu that's running to the card, the secondary psu won't turn on. All of the info that I can find on the internet about using a second psu involves making a jumper for the 24 pin. However, this little psu only has an 8 pin and a 4 pin. The part # on the PSU is 0KPRG9. Now the psu card in the precision does have an empty 10 pin cpu slot open that I have a cord for.. Could I also maybe get a 10 pin to 8 pin adapter to power the tesla?

I know that the v100 is passively cooled and it is not meant to be ran in a workstation. I have no intention on running it in this system, I just want to test that it's not bricked before I get a server set up to run it.

Alot of trouble to see if this card works. Maybe you already found a solution. Migth be best to test in a rig with appropriate connections.

If you can't are there these,
DELL PRECISION T5810 10 PIN TO 8 PIN POWER CABLE 3H4HG | eBay
from what i see a 10pin to 8pin pcie adapter for your powerboard. With this one and the 8pin you say you have could you via the next power that card,

Well that is i've looked well and if you really want to spend that kond of money.
