Hey guys I'm trying to install a NVIDIA GeForce GT730 graphics card into this desktop. For some reason no matter what I do once installed my monitor merely goes to sleep and doesn't show any type of screen whatsoever. I have tried connecting the monitor via VGA and HDMI with no results. I tried disabling the integrated graphics without any luck. I have tried all kinds of routines without any success. I would hate to return this video card so I'm hoping someone can help me. HELP!!!

Welcome to the forum.
I don't work for HP.
The 730, as well as 900 series and 1000 series Nvidia graphics cards, will work with your PC.
You have to go to the BIOS.
Check the Security tab. Look at Device Security. Hey, I'm jogging my memory. The settings you need to change are located somewhere in Device Security settings.
Disable Secure boot and then enable Legacy boot.
Save changes. Exit the BIOS.
Then confirm using a four digit code supplied at system reboot.
You should now be able to install the 730 after doing the above.
Please uninstall the current graphics drivers before using the above steps.

You have to disable Secure boot first. Then enable Legacy boot.
Now, save changes and exit the BIOS.
Your PC wil reboot.
Wait for the prompt to confirm the changes. You should receive a four digit numeric code to confirm the change.
I have done this on many HP PCs.
The PC will not see the new graphics card if you don't do this.
