Question Why graphics card does not work well ?

my problem is that, a few days ago an OEM graphics card (hp, 1050ti 4gb) just arrived at my house. Since it came to me and I mounted it on my computer, it has had problems ... The graphic turns on, heats up, and GIVES "VIDEO" (with "video" I mean a black screen after 30 seconds of turning on the equipment, WITHOUT BIOS OR ANYTHING RELATED) the monitor gives video saying that its input is DVI and in 640x480 resolution, and then from there it does nothing else. As I understand it, the computer starts correctly, it simply does not give video.

I tried connecting the graphics that I use now and the OEM at the same time, and miraculously the pc started thanks to the graphics that I already have. The OEM graphic gives "error 43" in Windows when I try to install the graphics.

My PC specs:
AMD FX 6300 3.5
10GB DDR3 1600mhz
500 and 250 GB SSD
EVGA 600W 80 PLUS BRONZE

Any solution?

Did you order the graphics card?

Source? HP?

Does the card get real hot? Temperatures?

Look in Reliability History for error codes and other entries that can be related to the OEM graphics card being installed and/or uninstalled.

However, one immediate thought is that the current PSU may not be able to keep up with the power demands of the 1050ti GPU.

How old is that 600 watt EVGA PSU? Was it new, used, reconditioned? Heavy use for gaming video editing, or even mining?

I bought it on eBay a few days ago. I was able to verify that it was indeed a 1050ti from the HP brand.
The graphics card is heating up as it should since, in theory, it should be working properly.

The power source is "good". I bought it used 1 year ago now, the previous owner edited wedding videos and so on. I currently have a 100W consumer HD7870 connected to it through an 8-pin connection.

Whenever I have tried the 1050ti I have disconnected the graphic that I currently use but leaving the 8-pin power connected, although I really do not know if that is right xD.

Anyway, I wish I could use it :(

The GPU might just be defective. Lots of people try to sell their old defective parts on eBay.

A 1050 Ti's only a slight upgrade from a 7870 anyway, so I'm not sure why the swap in the first place.

In agreement with @DSzymborski .

Start by checking the motherboard's User Guide /Manual along with the applicable HP 1050ti documentation.

Double check physical installation (connectors and cables) and the GPU's configuration settings.

Try the GPU in another known working computer.

If unable to get the GPU to work then return the GPU to seller.

Seller may "push back" on that.

Check eBay's rules and procedures to ensure that you follow the correct process.
