I have a prebuilt Dell optiplex 990. I bought a Gainward GTX 1050 and a corsair vs550. I think that the card is installed properly, because its fans are spinning. When I connect the card to the montior with HDMI, I get a "No Signal" message. When I connect my onboard intel graphics to monitor everything works fine. When I open the device manager, there is a section called "Other Devices" and a device called "Serial PCI slot" is in it. I think that this is the gpu. When I try to install drivers, I got a message that says: cannot recognize gtx 1050 (or something like that :p ). I know I should disable onboard graphics from bios but the option "Video" on bios, is _________ only if the system reconize a GPU (expect the onboard). (bios is : A19 - latest version). Everything is updated to latest version too (chipsets,etc). The slot is not dead, I had a sound card before and it was working fine. The card also is not dead. I've tested it on my old pc and it worked.
Any help?

MERGED QUESTION
Question from Thodoris_ : "New GTX 1050 not detected on Dell Optiplex 990"

I have a prebuilt Dell optiplex 990. I bought a Gainward GTX 1050 and a corsair vs550 500w. I think that the card is installed properly, because its fans are spinning. When I connect the card to the montior with HDMI, I get a "No Signal" message. When I connect my onboard intel graphics to monitor everything works fine. When I open the device manager, there is a section called "Other Devices" and a device called "Serial PCI slot" is in it. I think that this is the gpu. When I try to install drivers, I got a message that says: cannot recognize gtx 1050 (or something like that).Bios is not reconizing the card.. When I go to the bios, it says that all PCI express slots are empty.(bios is : A19 - latest version). Everything is updated to latest version too (chipsets,etc). The slot is not dead, I had a sound card before and it was working fine. The card also is not dead. I've tested it on my old pc and it worked. I also opened a thread on the Dell Forum and a guy told me that I should turn CSM ON and Secure Boot OFF but I have no idea what is that and how to do it. I am running windows 10 64bit uefi. I think that the card is supported by my pc. If it is not, I am going to swap cpu from my new to the old pc (they have the same socket) but I have no idea how to and I prefer the dell one...
Any help would be appreciated. :)
