K450e incompatible with GTX 1060 3GB?

2020-03-06, 1:50 AM

CPU : i5 - 4460 (3.2GHz)

GPU : NVIDIA GeForce GT 720

Power : 500w EVGA PSU

Memory : 8GB

OS : Window 8.1 64-bit

 

So I've been wanting to upgrade my graphics card from a NVIDIA GT 720 to a GTX 1060 3GB. I've already upgraded my power supply to 500w and got the 1060 in there but there seems to be a problem. It recognizes the graphics card but it still chooses to use the integrated graphics! I opened the device manager it shows a yellow warning triangle next to the 1060 and shows error code 43, "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems." I've tried upgrading and downgrading drivers, made sure the BIOS isn't preferring integrated graphics and even removing the card and blowing the dust out of it. I doubt that it's a hardware problem since the card was barely used when I first got it. Is it because of the motherboard? Should I upgrade to Windows 10? Is the graphics card incompatible with the K450e?

Hello AUDIO80 and welcome to the Lenovo community forum,

 

If you can should try the 1060 in another system to rule-out the possibility there is something wrong with it.

If it's a new card, call MSI tech support to help troubleshoot the problem.
