    It'd be beyond my capabilities. The BIOS update files appear to not contain the .bin (or whatever) file as a discrete entitiy, so that would make using a more flexible DOS based flasher difficult.

    If a clean install is done on a desktop, and the drive is transferred into a laptop, there is no guarantee that it will work. It may; Windows 10 is fairly good at sorting out drivers.

    A little Web searching indicates that a GT 1030 will run in a G41 motherboard.

    The GT 1030 goes in a PCI-E X16 slot, but it only runs X4 (4 lanes). Whether the resulting 2GB/s bandwidth (PCI...

    Does a GT 240 (vintage 2009) meet the graphics requirements of the game you're running, at 1920 X 1080? It's a rather weak card, by current standards, and it has only 1GB of VRAM.

    At a guess, it's a connection issue.

    The next would be a different cable.

    The GTX 750 ti isn't a high-powered card. It has no auxiliary PCI-E power connections. It's rated at 60W, which isn't much less than the maximum supported through the PCI-E X16 slot (75W).
