Hi , i want to install a new graphics card on my HP 120-011in desktop pc . Currently my desktop is running integrated Intel HD graphics 4400 . I recently purchased a Nvidia Geforce GT 710 graphics card but when i inserted it in PCI-E port , the pc is not able to detect it . So here are my questions -

Hi there @Abhishek_India,
Welcome back to the HP Support Forums! I understand that you are having issues with a graphics card upgrade. I am happy to give you a hand with this.
Looking at the card you are trying to use: GeForce GT 710 Specifications, it shows the following: Minimum System Power Requirement (W) 300. This means you will preferably want a power supply in your computer that exceeds this amount, just to be safe.
Please let me know whether that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.
