Hi ! Good day to all. I would really appreciate if someone could help me with my problem.
Well my problem is everytime i install my video card it just wont work but fan is spinning. Its just a black screen, both on the video card and motherboard vga slot ( when video card is installed). I try using a Geforce 210 video card for lower power usage, but it only boot for only a quite a sec then it will just show no display. i tried going into safe mode and used ddu but still no result on my 550 ti. Tried changing bios setttings but i think its already set on Pcie settings coz' the geforce 210 works. I really dont know what can cause it not to work. ( p.s. my HW Monitor shows that my +5.00 v is only at 4.892 v )
Hardware monitor ITE IT87
Voltage 0 1.39 Volts [0x57] (CPU VCORE)
Voltage 1 1.10 Volts [0x45] (VIN1)
Voltage 2 3.34 Volts [0xD1] (+3.3V)
Voltage 3 5.00 Volts [0xBA] (+5V)
Voltage 4 12.29 Volts [0xC0] (+12V)
Voltage 5 -5.82 Volts [0x5B] (-12V)
Voltage 6 -4.74 Volts [0x4A] (-5V)
Voltage 7 4.89 Volts [0xB6] (+5V VCCH)

the -12v should be at minimum -11v. psu's generally have a tolerance range of +-5%, so the -12v is a bit concerning but I recall something about computers mainly using +12v anyways, which shows up as nominal. I don't believe that psu has a gpu 6 or 8 pin outlet, are you using an adapter?

no, i'm not using an adapter.
 
GeForce GTX 550 Ti requires a 400 watt power supply.

If you can read +12v amperage output, I doubt it can put out that much power. It is a real low quality item. You need to use better quality parts. Try using a good name brand 400 or 500 watt power supply.

CORSAIR CX Series CX500 has +12V@38A which equates to 456 watts on the +12v line. Compare that to what your label reads.

IDK, but when I had the "irql_not_less_or_equal" with my old r9 380x, i just uninstalled the drivers and used the default drivers. But since its now the onboard graphics it could be something else, it wouldnt hurt to DDU it and reinstall the drivers.

when you said you uninstall your video card's driver, you didn,t install a new driver to it back?
