Added a Gigabyte GTX 1050 without changing Bios settings. Monitor did not display anything through either onboard graphics or 1050. Removed 1050 and still not getting any display. Cables work as I've tested with another PC. There's no beeping. PC turns on and seems to function other than not displaying anything. Any suggestions?

I try to help you - if you are lucky it works again
Search the net for BIOS reset!
Perform a BIOS reset and test if the onboard card will work again.
Shut down your computer. Disconnect it from the network. Then press the power button again to to consume the fault current in the device. Remove the side cover of the PC. On the motherboard is a small button battery. Press the latch. Since there are manufacturer differences, wait about five minutes to replace the battery. After that, you can reassemble your computer.

I know this is an overdue reaction, but I do not agree with the above poster @Raymond that this might be solved with a BIOS update. The whole argument makes no sense because even if the BIOS wouldn't support your NIC (which isn't the job of the BIOS to begin with!) then it should be solved the moment you took the card out again!

Do you have dual monitors on that system? What are the specs? What hardware do you have connected?
My suggestion: strip it down to basic needs only. One monitor, one keyboard and one mouse, then see what happens next.

what are you writing?
Not BIOS update but just reset, is something else!
If the problem does not exist with the Graphics Output Protocol (GOP) of the graphics card and the Compatibility Support Module (CSM) is disabled, only the reinitialization via the BIOS CMOS reset can be helpful, then the probable cause is the SMBIOS / UEFI BIOS of the motherboard is set incorrectly for the graphics adapter or something like that.

Hello @Raymond ,
I agree with your approach, just added Step 2:
1. Remove the additional GC.
2. Reset the PSU by removing the power cable, then press & hold the front power button for apprx. 30 seconds.
3. Check if PC is working now as it should.
4. If not, remove the CMOS battery for some minutes, then repeat Step 3.
5. Please report the results.
