Is the BIOS current?
Is the GPU in the right slot?
Did the person who installed Windows know to install the latest BIOS and motherboard drviers?

Many of those have sub standard power supplies. I find many builders scared of the BIOS updates. Good news for repair counters?

I do expect you to know what a BIOS update is and what the make, model of the PSU so you can share it here so all can check it out.

Motherboard is a asus strix b250i and the power supply is a corsair CX650M

And does it have the Version 1205 2018/05/25 BIOS update?

I see this note: "STRIX B250I GAMING BIOS 1205
Intel New ME Update, Improve Stability."

That's also can mean more support of boards and such.

The PSU looks like a normal PSU and reviewed well at,4770.html

I did ask about the BIOS and you didn't note it got done. There are also CPUs that are not supported and the details are not showing up in your posts. It's clear you don't know how working problems like this progresses. You post a lot of detail with the problem and folk give you ideas to work.

You reply with the work done or why you didn't. I'm starting off as if it's the usual.

Eventually this GPU has to be tested in another PC but there's hope it doesn't need that yet. kicks this around and asks another question. I can't tell if your 1050 requires a power connection. Please folk, full details.

My bad

Sorry for being unclear brotha. So i have a 6-pin gtx 1050ti OC edition by PNY. Its connected to a 6+2 pin PSU Cabel. I just leave the extra 2-pin cable hanging. The fans spin in the motherboard. Im a troubled man when it comes to drivers. I do have a theory though. Is my gpu not showing up because i do not have the DVI-D cable plugged in to my gpu to my monitor? Or no? Thats the only reason i could think of why it isnt detected.

I said the fans spin in the motherbord i meant the GPU fans spin.

Yes. Would it be because i dont have the vga cable plugged in from gpu to monitor?

I have to ask.

If you " dont have the vga cable plugged in from gpu to monitor?" why would you expect this card to work?

That is, when I install a new card I use my monitor on this card while I set it up.
If I get no display, I know something's very wrong.

I figured it out. My bios wont recognize my gpu because i put in my gpu like 3 months after i built my pc because i was on vacation. So i have my motherboard plugged into my monitor through HMDI. My built has been used INTEGRATED **** GRAPHICS. I plugged in my gpu and bios never recognized it which i think would be normal since i havnt had it in since the beginning. I need to get a DVI cable for my gpu to monitor. Do i need my motherboard and gpu plugged in? Or just my GPU? And will my GPU never displayed when i plugged it into my monitor through hmdi. Hmmm?
