550 Watts is cutting it close. 600 Watts would be better. But being so close, you should at least be able to POST to UEFI. The 600 Watts only is needed when you kick it into high gear for gaming and such.

Do you have the necessary PCIe cables hooked up properly? There may not be enough power to power the graphics card.

Plus, what make and model PSU? If it's old, or a generic enough, it might not even supply 450 Watts reliably.

Also try resetting the UEFI by pulling the CMOS jumper on the board.

does the old gpu still work?
got the pcie power plug in?
make and model of the psu
Hey sorry for late answer , my PSU is Corsair VS550 white with 550W and sadly I don’t have the old GPU in order to check it but right now when I plug my monitor into the MOBO I actually can get a display so do you think it’s posible that my problem is that my GPU isn’t getting enough power ? I’m sure I plugged the pcie power plugged in correctly but still no image with the GPU

What is that GPU brand? Every GTX1080 have different power needed to run.
