    Install EVGA GTX 1050ti, black screen upon boot


    I tried to install an EVGA GTX 1050 TI GPU today and when I booted the system after installation all I could get was a black screen. My system:
    - Dell Studio XPS 9100, CPU I7-930, 9GB Ram, 525W Power Supply
    - These are the steps I took to install:
    -- Flashed Bios (A04)
    -- Deleted my drivers for my old GPU
    -- Shut down and unplugged power and disconnected everything from the PC
    -- Removed old GPU from the PCI-E 16 slot
    -- Installed new GPU in that same slot
    -- Connected my Dell U2713HM digital monitor to the DVI port
    -- Connected pwr cord and booted; result - black screen.

    Tried this 3 times, same result

    Reinstalled old GPU (AMD Radeon 5750 which works

    Looked at the BIOS for a setting they may need tweeking, but saw none that would seem relevant.

    Any ideas?

    Have you tried the DVI-D port?

    If it did not work then I would contact EVGA or who ever you purchased this card from.

    Does your screen have a HDMI port?

    Circa 2011, Dell Studio XPS 9100. I did contact customer service at EVGA and they thought this card should work in my system. I then contacted their service department & the tech rep thought there might be something in the BIOS that I needed to tinker with, but he couldn't steer me as to what.

    At any rate, although it works well the system is quite old with an old BIOS (2014 is the most current) and I'm afraid I'll need to return this card and stay with my old one.

    It has an HMDI port but that connection doesn't work either.

    In the past, I have had to clear the CMOS to get a PC to recognize a new graphics card. No guarantees that it'll help, but it's worth a try.

    (The jumper is right next to the CMOS button cell.)

    Good luck.

    Thanks, I'll try that and if it doesn't work I'm returning the card.
