So I bought a EVGA GT 1030 for a build i was planing and realised I had an old Advent SE2102 (specs are on http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/advent/pc/SE2102.htm)
lying around running Linux Lite but for some reason when ever I plug in the GPU and try and boot the os the screen freezes and nothing happens. What’s the problem??

First thing that springs to mind --- especially on a factory-built PC --- is that the PSU is not powerful enough to drive the 1030 so the entire system just gives up.
You need to be careful because if that PSU blows with the excessive demand on it, it could wipe out your new 1030 as well.

It’s using a 350W PSU and still runs when the GPU isn’t on the board
