Solved!

Can I put a GTX 780 in an HP Pavilion 500

HP Recommended
Pavilion 500
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am trying to install an MSI  GTX 780 Gaming graphics card in an HP Pavilion 500.  I have installed a Corsair CX650 power supply which should be enough for the card however when I connect the card to the mothboard I get no video signal at all from either the card or the motherboard.  If I unplug the card form the motherboard the video works fine from the motherboards VGA.

 

The motherboard is a IPM87-MP.  On system information it says the BIOS version is 80.07, 05/09/2013 and the HP support assistant says there are no new BIOS updates available.

 

It is simply not compatible or is there something I can do to get it working.

 

Thanks in advance for any insight!

 

Other system info:

Windows 10 Home (10.0.19042 Build 19042)

Model 500-210ea

Processor i3-4130 @ 3.4Ghz

8GB RAM

Hello
The graphics card should be compatible
If your power supply is sufficient, it may be a concern of the boot security
Or your card has a problem
What is mentioned is not quite the same symptom, but check this:

It worked!  I just disabled secure boot and enabled legacy boot and restarted with the GPU connected and it's working fine.

 

Thanks so much for your help!
