First off you installed it in your computer, not your CPU (cpu is central processsing unit). I'm not being picky here just informing you so you don't keep making the mistake.

Did you uninstall the old video card drivers before you put the card in?

Did you install the latest nvidia drivers for that video card?

What is your power supply (brand and how many watts)?

that +12v is way too low , not surprising considering you added a new gfx card and its only a 250w psu , i suggest youll get this psu

its not really the watts the counts , its the amper rating , look on its sticker and report back with the +3.3v/+5v/+12v rating or just provide the model ,take an everest screenshot or just copy & paste
