So im new to this whole pc upgrading scene, i usually buy a pc already set but this one i wanted to update myself.
I recently tried upgrading from a gt 710 to a gtx 1050ti and i thought i did everything right but when i downloaded the drivers and went to restart the pc for it to take effect, it puts me into a “ your pc ran into a problem, we will restart for you” loop. It does that until i put my gt 710 back in.
What am i doing wrong?
Does it not fit my motherboard?
Im putting it in the pci-e x16 slot. But what i dont understand is that above where it says pci-ex16_1 on my motherboard, it says pci-e_minicard
What does that mean? Do i need to get a 1050ti mini?
Im going to post a few pics of what im working with and hopefully someone can help me out.
if you guys need more info please let me know and i will do my best to get it to you. Thank you!
CPU: i5-2300
Ram: 8gb
Motherboard: 686 Amibios ZJ547286
my stuff is older but all i do is stream on it and it does its job. I will buy a whole new pc once i have the money but for now its what im working with.

what 1050ti is that? brand model and where did you get it. pretty sure it is fake

what did you pay?
i paid $100 for it:(
all it says is, WY k240201904... i didnt even know these could be faked.. man thats a bummer. It says its a GeForce GTX 1050ti. The box says Nvidia Geforce series... man i feel stupid now.

What's the exact listing from which you purchased this? Not just "amazon." The lack of any kind of branding is suspicious and this looks similar to some fake 1050 Tis. It would be helpful to know what this 1050 Ti is claimed to be, so that we can compare.

honestly right when i opened it and saw the box i kinda felt like something was off
You need to post a GPU-Z screenshot, to verify whether this card is genuine, or a FAKE. Click on the "Lookup" button" on the top right side of this tool/utility. Does it take you to TechpowerUp's database ? Under the NAME entry, what it does it say about the GPU ?

unfortunately ive never been able to get it to actually turn on.. i followed a yotuber video and eleted old drivers and installed the new drivers for the 1050ti and then put in the 1050ti and when i went to boot up, it looks like its starting up and then goes to a blue screen and repeats that over and over until i put my old card back in.
