Re: GTX 1050 vs Dell Vostro 470

Strange.

I have a Vostro-460 here. Been working fine with on-board video.

I tried dropping in an AMD-8570 and it stopped booting. But the AMD-8570 was needed in other OptiPlex machine after all so I pulled it back out. Both machines fine again. AMD card works fine as always there (1080p is so much nicer over DVI vs VGA) .

I'm getting ready to recycle the Vostro-460, so I'll never know. I would troubleshoot further, just to help you, but it's a different model, so not much help.

Edit: Actually, my problem appears to be this video-card/non-UEFI mismatch problem:
