I have installed numerous graphic cards in my 6200 pro micro tower (i3-2100 8GB BIOS J01 v02.29 4/4/2016)
In all cases, with the card installed, will not boot, can't even get to the BIOS setup.
Tried several cards thinking it was an issue with the PCIe version.
Then thought it was a secure boot problem, but have confirmed no secure boot present, and using legecy BIOS.
Latest card to try is Geforce GT710.
Have reset CMOS and BIOS settings to default.
Any other ideas on how to get the system to boot with a card in the PCIe 16 slot?
I really only wanted an HDMI port.
Will get an adapter for the Display port if unsuccessful, but should be able to add a graphic card.

In case somone is watching this thread, I found the problem so I will share.
Simple really, just not familiar with the HP BIOS.
Under the System Security tab, is something called Slot Security.
The default is all 4 slots 'Enabled' I guess that means the security is 'Enabled', not the slot is enabled.
Anyhow, switched them to 'Disabled' and all works fine. ended up with the GT710 card, but I suspect the Radeon 6450 would work now too.
Apparently the USB security works the opposite way. Since the slots started working when I 'Disabled' security, I did that on the USB security....Whoops, no mouse. Should have left them alone. Need to show 'Enabled'.
