Older monitors used to have there own internal CPU which would say SIGNAL OUT OF RANGE meaning the horizontal or vertical frequency would not work with that monitor. Do you get the BIOS screen when you turn it on?
What is the make and model of the "mobo"?

Have you tried removing the NVidia card and using the onboard video on the system board?
P.S. Is this an HP PC?

Oh, you answered the onboard question in your first posting; but, if it is an HP PC, lots of them absolutely hate non approved GPU's and the BIOS checks. Was there an older GPU and what was it?

Does the old GPU still work and have you tried it?

Sounds to me that you need to change this setting for fps back to 120 since that is what appears to have broken the system.
Depending on how you made the change this might be a little tricky, depending on where this change was made. I suspect that you may not be able to revert this change using the on-board graphics as the computer will not be looking at your video card which will make seeing the 1030 difficult ! You may need to find some willing friend who will allow you to mount it in his computer. Still it is always worth trying to see if you can do this using the on-board graphics.
I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !

1) Remove the 1030 card and boot using the onboard video which you said works fine.
2) Go to Programs and Features in the control panel (Start Settings or WinKey+R and APPWIZ.CPL in the run box)
3) Uninstall the NVidia drivers (all of them if there are more than one).
4) Reboot when asked to do so and redo #2 until they are all gone.
5) Shut the PC down and turn it back on to confirm it is working OK.
6) Shut it down again and put the 1030 card back in.
7) Move the video back to the 1030 card and turn the PC back on.
8) Install the Nvidia drivers again if Windows doesn't do it for you automatically.
The GT1030 card only consumes 30 Watts so the bank screen was not caused by the PSU (period)
I think you simply forced the card to use a higher frequency than your monitor could deal with which will result in a blank screen so be careful about doing it again.

We have got to know the model of HP that you have.
With the PC turned of (!!!!), look on the bottom of the tower. The same sticker that has the serial number should have the HP model number and/or the product number (almost always ends in #ABA). Can you post one of them, please?
