Thanks for that, I see now why it wouldn't work. @Big_Dave has mentioned below that some AMD cards have issues in HP systems. Why couldn't he have told me that earlier? Also, shouldn't this be listed in "Product Upgrade Information" for my product's specifications?

My monitor has two connections one blue and one that's longer and white. The video card I bought (EVGA GeForce GT 610) has two ports that are longer like the white conection from the monitor. How would I hook this up?
p.s This is going in a p6142p

The blue one is called VGA, and the white one is DVI. You'll need to buy a DVI cable to connect your monitor. First, you need to find out what type of cable you have: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/13611i85823D50731521FC/image-size/original?v=... . Your monitor and graphics card may have different ports, use the cable type that has the most prongs but still fits in both.

Please review this posted document on: Guide to Selecting a Discrete Video Card
Be sure to install the posted BIOS update for your PC before installing the GTX 750 TI.
Some of the GTX 750 TI video cards require a 6 pin PCI-E power connector and your PC doesn't have that type of power connector. If you buy that model of the GTX 750TI then you will need to replace the power supply.

Thank you very much. I was looking at this EVGA GTX 750 TI Graphics Card:http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1032845-REG/evga_02g_p4_3753_kr_geforce_gtx750ti_2048mb_gddr5.... and the person who wrote a review on it, said that it will run well with the 300watt power supply that I defualty have. So would it be ok to try it out with my 300watt supply before upgrading to a 400watt supply?
