Hello, I have an XPS 8700 and I recently installed a GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER. It has been running great, other than this problem. When I first start the computer it will boot and restart 1-3 times before stopping. My PSU is 460 watt and the GPU is recommended 350. I am guessing the problem is I forgot to update something? Like BIOS or something in CPU. I have the NVIDIA game ready drivers as well.
Windows 10 Home 64-bit
Intel Core i7 4790 @ 3.60GHz
Haswell 22nm Technology
16.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28)
Dell Inc. 0KWVT8 (CPU 1)
Pixio PX247 (1920x1080@144Hz)
4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER (PNY)
931GB Seagate ST1000DM003-1ER162 (SATA )
That card has a supplemental power connector that I don't think your computer has. Trade it in for GeForce GTX1030 instead. That works great on the xps 8700 -- cheaper too.
Could be the PSU failing, even if it's big enough for the new GPU.
Changed the motherboard battery lately?
Have you run diagnostics from the F12 menu at boot?

Never changed it on a 7 year old computer? Buy a CR 2032 coin cell battery at any store for about $2. Manual has the directions.
I don't know about the XPS 8700 but some older Dells had a diagnostic utility partition. If you have reinitialized or replaced your original disk drive that partition no longer exists and maybe the reason you can't run the diagnostics.
