[SOLVED] Acer MC605 MoBo locked?

Hi everyone,
some years ago I got this pretty crappy desktop computer with this specs:

Intel Core i5 3330 @3.0GHz
Nvidia GT620 2GB
8GB RAM DDR3 @1600MHz
1TB HDD WD Blue
200W PSU
proprietary mobo

I wanted to upgrade the GPU to play games occasionally, so I bought a Sapphire RX 550, which consumes as much as the GT620.

However, after having it plugged and powered on the pc, it doesn't even show the "acer" logo.
I thought it was an alimentation problem, so I tried with a friend of mine's PSU, but nothing changed.

So I tried plugging the card into my friend's PC and it works fine.

This makes me think that the proprietary MoBo of my Acer is kinda "locked", even if I've read of other people upgrading GPU to this PC.

What could be the problem?
Thanks in advance.
