Trying to enable legacy and turn off secure boot in bios, go to save changes and exit, and nothing.

Just bought a new graphics card and got the 6 beep bios error. Tried fixing it with my old graphics card, but the settings won’t save. After I save and exit after making the changes in bios, the PC does not reboot like it should. Please help!!!

Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.


A couple of questions:


What power supply (PSU) do you have? You have a CTO PC. HP offered a 300 watt, 460 watt, and 600 watt PSU option at purchase. Some graphics cards can require up to two eight pin power supply connections to power the card.


What graphics card are you trying to install? The new graphics card may require a higher wattage PSU.


Six beeps indicates a graphics card error (Link). Look in PCs released before 2015 at this link.


Your PC has a UEFI BIOS. A new graphics card will work if you have the correct power supply.


Correct graphics card upgrade procedure:


-Uninstall current Windows graphics card drivers

-Enter The BIOS. Disable Secure boot, and enable Legacy boot.

-Save changes and exit the BIOS. Enter a four character confirmation code to complete this change. Confirm this change at system startup after exiting the BIOS.

-Install the new graphics card


See detailed instructions to get the BIOS configured correctly at this (Link).
