Power consumption of the GeForce 210 is simply unreal. Under normal circumstances it never consumes more than 10W. Only in Furmark the power draw increases to 13W which is still an all-time low for any graphics card I have ever tested. The idle power consumption is an amazing 6W, which will make quite a difference in your power bill when you do desktop work all day.
It could be the power supply in that HP isn't up to it. It is also possible that you got a duff card. Not unheard of to get one that is bad from the get-go.
could b as you say, but his PSU is 300W with 9A on the 12V rail, (GeForce 210 requires minimum of 300W-that's ok, 18A on the 12V rail.)
If it was a PSU with 15-16 A on the 12V, then i would be thinking of a faulty card.

I was going to suggest you to try this card in a other, friends, computer, so that you can see if the card even works as stormy13 said. If you do so, mark up the system specs of the configuration you tested it in ad post back.

Monitor not getting signal.
Alright so it worked when I left to go pay a bill. Come back and it has no signal. I tried the PC on my TV to see if it worked and it does no problem, so I know the PC is not at fault. Tried a DVI cable and a VGA. Tried restarting and powering off everything.
