I just built my first pc which has a 1050ti (I know it’s not good but it was a hand me down) and an i7- 9700f. It seems to start up then after 2-3 seconds shut down. I’ve unplugged and plugged everything on the motherboard and even changed the cmos battery but nothing works. Any solutions?

specs:
I7-9700f
Zotac mini 1050ti
16 gb ram
1tb western digital hd
120 gb ssd
Dell ipcfl - vm motherboard
Cooler master hyper 212 cpu cooler

What power supply are you using?

Where did the motherboard come from? Was it repurposed from an Dell XPS 8930?
A google search indicates Dell used it in that model, but I am unsure if that is the only model they used it in.

It may need a bios update to handle 9th gen Intel CPUs. And, from what I can tell, you would have to use an 8th gen Intel CPU to be able to do a bios update

Original BIOS version 1.0.1 only supported 8th gen Intel.
Support for 9700K was added in version 1.1.3
1.1.6 indicates support for 9th gen Intel (presumably including your i7-9700F).
Latest BIOS is version 1.1.16 here:

Expand 'Version' for links to all prior versions.

Note that Dell's bios updates must be initiated from Windows.
