Dell XPS 8900 and NVidia Quadro 2000 compatibility

Bought an XPS 8900 from Best Buy May 2016. Used as stock config since then as a home CAD machine.

I think it came stock with a GeoForce 730, maybe ?

Had it hooked up to a single Dell monitor via the DVI cable.

I took an NVidia Quadro 2000 2GB video card from an older XPS 8700 that I had installed it in and had been running fine, plug and play, and removed the GeoForce 730 from my new XPS 8900 and installed the Quadro 2000 in the new 8900, expecting no problems.

The Quadro has DVI out and two (2) Displayport out. I tried the DVI, no luck. The tried the Displayport, still no luck. Monitor is asleep, does not respond.

I know this card is a little older, but I am not sure why it would not be supported on the 8900, when I just plug and played it on the 8700, no problem?????

is the NVidia Quadro 2000 not supported for some reason? why?

Is there any way I can make this work ont he XPS 8900?
