Omen by HP Obelisk 875
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I recently decided to upgrade my GPU to the NVIDIA 3070 as the one that came with the pc wasn't enough for me. Of course with this I also upgraded my PSU to a 750w, and that works just fine. However when I switch out my gpu to the new one the pc will not boot up and will simply do 3 long beeps then 3 short beeps 5 times. I made sure before that all my drivers were up to date. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know exactly what the beep code pattern means but in many circumstances when you install a non-HP video card, you have to go into the BIOS and disable secure boot.

 

See this link for the settings to change...

That would be the only suggestion I can offer.

Otherwise, if the power supply is sufficient, either the card is incompatible, or simply defective!

Attention
A bios update is not without risk!
Be aware that if you are offered to do so, it will be at your own risk, the computer may become unusable, think about it
