I have installed the new graphics card into the PC and windows does not load. I have tried pressing ESC to view start up menu but only get the following

I have seen several people have had similar issues and have tried various obvious things but am now stuck.

Your unit, as shown here, originally was WIN 7 and has BIOS, issued 02/2012.  It can never be upgraded to the newer UEFI v BIOS, which came into systems 09/2012.  The GT710 has UEFI.   So, it is a critical mismatch.

Your would have to:

1) Upgrade to a 600W PSU

2) Find a GTX 660     (compare the GTX 660 to GT 710)
