Won't Boot with Graphics Card In

Pavilion P7 1017C
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

So I was wondering if someone can help me get my desktop to boot with the graphics card in. I have a Zotac PCIe 1x slot GT 710. Every time I try entering the BIOS by hitting the escape key, I get this ticking noise every time I hit the escape key and I hear beeping. This is the 3rd graphics card I've tried now and they all give the same results. I've tried clearing the CMOS and that doesn't look like that's worked either.

Hi,

 

Try the PCIe x16 slot.

 

You really should be using a x16 graphics card.

Already have... I tried all of them... 

 

"You really should be using a x16 graphics card" is jumping to conclusiosn too quickly.

@ericsonjames

 

I am not jumping to a conclusion but stating a fact that x16 graphics cards work better than those that are not x16.
