I have a 1050 ti and a RX 580(which my monitor is connected to) on a Fatal1ty X370 motherboard. For some reason my 1050 ti isn't taking any load and the 580 is taking all of it. Can someone give me a hand here?

Your additional cards don't take any load just by default. It only works in applications that are specifically designed to do so, such as mining or distributed computing. Technically it is possible for game makers to enable this ability too using DX12, but as far as I'm aware the only game where it's actually implemented is Ashes of the Singularity.

I'm afraid not. It's entirely up to the developers of whatever software you're trying to run, and it's such a rare circumstance that they generally just don't bother. Game devs, Nvidia, and AMD don't even bother providing support for two+ cards from the same vendor anymore, let alone different vendors. For gaming, you're almost always going to be limited to the capability of your primary card alone these days.
