Graphics card

Hello, i had old pc, so i decided to update it little bit so i bought new graphics card and reinstaled it.
From nvidia geforce 210 into geforce GT 710.
By the way i bought this card last week. And then i tried to play some games and it cracked.
Btw in my opinion i think its power supply fault ( because i have really old 400w poer supply, so i think he cant handle that GPU)
Please help i dont know what to do..

I'd hold off on that.

While you were in there did you get out the canned air and clean this machine?

How old is this PC. Sometimes you have to replace the old cracked heatsink compound on the CPU. Such work could cause this.

Finally, try the Nvidia GeForce Experience app to get latest driver and to set the video settings for the game.

It's time to do the million billion electron clean up.

In reply to: Re

It's time. There are many YouTubes on cleaning and compound work so I'll write I'd do the work now.
As to the app, not only must you download it, but install it and let it do the update.
