    specs:
    Acer x1935
    core pentium g640,
    8 GB RAM
    240 GB SSD

    When I tried to install the gpu into the PC, it gets stuck in the splash screen, and gives off a beep once in a while when I boot it up.
    what's wrong? why won't it boot?

    Advise us the exact SNID number and serial number on yours so we can confirm what hardware it came with.

    A detailed description of that "GT 1030" graphic card would also be helpful.

    DTSJMAA0042250998D9201 - serial number
    not sure about snid rn

    the gpu i'm trying to put in is a low profile zotac GT 1030.

    I'm being advised to use rufus to put Freedos into a USB, but that doesn't want to boot in the desktop, which gives me the error of : No boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed.
    it does boot into the usb on any other pc though, such as the laptop I'm using rn


    update, 3 of my USBS are being a little dumb. i flashed dos into another one and it boots now

    You successfully flashed the Bios ? If yes does the new graphics card work now ?

    According to that serial number, your Acer Aspire X1935 small form factor PC came with these specs:
    Intel Pentium G640 2.80 GHz dual core processor
    Intel HD Graphics (integrated)
    4 GB DDR3-1333 RAM
    500 GB SATA2 hard drive
    220W power supply

    According to your specs and comments in post #1, you appear to have added another 4 GB of RAM and switched to a solid state drive(SSD) and added a GeForce GT 1030 graphic card.
    That graphic card requires a recommended minimum of a 300W power supply.
    If you plan to use that PC for gaming or anything else that's power-hungry, that power supply won't suffice.
    That processor also doesn't have enough "horsepower".

    Yes
    It should suffice for me, the max wattage it will pull is around 220 watts, in which i don't think it'll ever reach
    I only plan on playing light esports games and browsing the web anyway.
