Hi everyone, I have a pre-built Acer Aspire M3920-E4012U desktop PC. I have 16 GB of RAM from Corsair, a 400 watt PSU from Coolmax, and the OEM pre-configured cooling fans.
I had only upgraded the RAM and PSU a few years ago. I was recently using a Zotac GT 630 Nvidia graphics card without any issues. No black screens or issues with HDMI.
I just attempted to install an EVGA GTX 1050 TI SC card to improve my gaming performance and it just didn't work. I used DDU to remove the old Intel and Nvidia drivers and tried connecting to HDMI, but either the computer would not boot up (3 beeps), or it would boot up and then a few minutes into startup, the screen would turn black while trying to install the Nvidia drivers for it and the computer would just restart a few times and get stuck on the black screen.
I have no idea what to do...I put the Zotac GPU back and it's working perfectly, but why doesn't the GTX 1050 TI SC work? I believe I have sufficient power since it connects to the PCI-E slot just as my Zotac GPU does. Any help?
