So I have been online and I have found out that if uefi
Is enabled on the pc than old video cards won't run I have went online looking on how to turn it off in the bios but there is no option in the bios to turn it off I looked in security, advanced, system nothing comes up about uefi however I have found it on my hp laptop but that is not important as I can't really put a gpu on a laptop so basically I can't find an option for uefi the only option I'm getting anywhere close to that is boot order can anyone help please

The choices usually are
UEFI/GPT or MBR
with Secure / Legacy boot options.
The BIOS is also a factor in how flexible it is for older hardware.
"and it is not picking up I device manager"
There is sometime a drop down menu to show hidden devices...
But the upshot is that it sadly may not be compatible.

There are two advantages of using a UEFI/GPT Layout Boot Device, one is that it could have the total storage capacity of over 2.0TB (MBR is Limited to 2TB) and if you have more than 4 Primary Partitions (not Logical within an Extended - there's no Limit for Logical Partitions within an Extended Partition Scheme). Hope this information about limited address spacing helps.
