boot up problems

@votaugh, welcome to the forum.

 

When requesting help you should always include the make/model (i.e. p6-xxxx) of the computer and/or monitor. This information is necessary for us to review the specifications of them.  I believe that your problem is caused by the fact that the video card is incompatible with the motherboard.  I will be able to help further when I have the full model or product number of the computer.

Thank you for the additional information, @votaugh.

 

As I suspected, the video card is not compatible with the motherboard.  The card requires UEFI in the motherboard instead of a Legacy/standard BIOS.  HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012.  The BIOS can't be update to UEFI.  The last cards not to require UEFI are the GTX 660/670 series.  Your best option is to choose a manufacturer and contact their Tech Support for help with choosing the best card for your system.  This will save you time and money.
