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.

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

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".

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.
