I've upgraded to a Radeon RX550 4GB to my HP Pavillion HPE H8 1170uk but it will not show on the HP 2011x monitor?

@MrViv,

The simple answer is "NO".  Your circa 2011 computer was based on WIN 7, and has a BIOS called "Legacy".  It can not be upgraded to the newer UEFIvBIOS required of modern GPU cards.
