T20 won't boot with PCI video card

Hi everyone,
I recently bought a PCI video card, an MSI with NVIDIA Gforce GT710.
I installed the video card using the first PCI slot on top but the T20 won't boot.
No signal and no events.
If I remove the video card the T20 boot normally.
Any idea or suggestion how to solve it?

Thank you in advance,
Regards

Bandi911,

The issue is compatibility, the T20 doesn't look to support internal GPU's, but does look to show a Nvidia NVS315 as an available part, but I would not be certain of its functionality. 

So it would be based off trial and error.

Re: T20 won't boot with PCI video card

HI!
Good news!
I tried again this morning and the card is working!
The only thing I changed when installing the video card was to remove he VGA cable from the onboard card, connecting the monitor to the new card.
I am still fighting with the drivers on Windows 10 Ent but the card is already working.
Good as tech case for everyone : )

Just for information, the max consumption allowed on the PCI-e slot 1 is 25W.
The card I am using needs 19W.
I will forward info about the stability of the card but everything seems fine.

Had the same problem and after trying both slots and reinstalling my old large ati card and again reinstalling the nvidia card, it worked.  I am not having a much luck installing the nvidia drivers.
