I currently have a Msi X58m motherboard, with 4x4GB Vengeance Ram, Xeon W3520 processor, Nvidia 4000 Quadro GPU, on a VS500 PSU (my first, budget rig) . I recently purchased a Msi Gtx 1650 to upgrade and run Warzone. I installed the new GPU and it won't even post. I'm not sure if it is a power issue, compatibility issue (PCI-E 2.0 on Mobo), or if it's a bad gpu. I confirmed with the seller they had it running on a Ryzen 1300 rig with no issues... Any insight is helpful!

I did not do anything in BIOS, I did reset the CMOS thinking that would do something. I can look in my BIOS to see what options there might be for the GPU. Any suggestions on what to look for/where to go to find correct settings?

I did not mean to check settings in the BIOS, I meant go to the motherboard vendor site and see if there is a newer BIOS for your motherboard. While older systems have issues with new video cards updating the BIOS does fix that issue in some systems.

I downloaded and flashed the most current BIOS for my Mobo and still no change. I connected the 1650 and I get a flash of light and no post still.
