Question monitor not working with new GT 1030

May 27, 2020
I recently got a GT 1030 and installed it just fine, I was careful to turn off the power and ground myself. However, the monitor doesn't pick up anything from the card it quickly flashes "no signal" then stays on a black screen with the orange light similar to if it was in sleep mode. I have a monitor with only a VGA port and have used active converters for HDMI and DVI and still no change. It's still the same result even if I have the card installed but the monitor connected to the motherboard. The only way it works is if the card is not in it at all. I recently added another 4gb of RAM which is now at 8gb. This is only a home PC that was purchased within the last 6 months with the following specs:

OS : Windows 10 Home 64 bit
Model: Acer Aspire XC-830
Processor: Intel Celeron J4005 Graphics: Intel UHD 600

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
