Installing a MXM video card into HP Elite 8300 ultraslim.
I get three long beeps at start up and system does not boot.
I know you can install MXM video card because your manuals describe removal in the teardown section. Also in the manual for" Illustrated Parts & Service Map" it Says "AMD Radeon HD 7650A (MXM) 687445-001" which is the exact video card I have.
Already updated to the latest bio firmware

Did you buy part number 687445-001 from HP ?
If not, please return that card and buy card from HP. Actually retail card and HP part are not the same.

Yes I bought the exact part. Because the system didn't come with one originally I'm thinking maybe there's a pin on the board that needs to be installed. Or something in the bios that needs to get configured before I install the card. But I've looked at both the things and can figure anything out.

I now believe the problem is I'm using 135 W power adapter instead of 180 W power adapter.
Just ordered from spare part see if that fixes it. I like to thank everyone for their help but because nobody helped I only have myself to thinks. Great job HP great job

I have an original heatsink that came off the 1 GB card. But it does not have a fan. I ended up using ((((OEM 0PGH1N Dell VOSTRO 360 INSPIRON ONE 23020 AIO GPU Heatsink w/ Fan PGH1N.))) Then just making a plug for it to plug into the UBS header that is located just in front of the card location. It snaps right onto the card no modification needed
If you would like the original heatsink send me a message through email at [personal information removed] but like I said it doesn't have a fan but I guess the fan in the back of the unit was supposed to cool it.
I also doubled them in my unit one on the inside one on the outside with a Y plug for extra cooling. Although it doesn't really seem to need.
