Upgrading a GPU. Please help.

Pegatron 2AC2 Motherboard

Processor i5-2400s 2.5ghz



Trying to upgrade this from onboard graphics to a PNY Geforce 1030gt pci-e GPU.

After installation, No display. GPU fan is on. LEDs on. Gives 1 long beep followed by 3 short beep "error". 

Only software i have tried to update was the BIOS. There was no update for my MB for Windows 10 so I looked up Windows 7v and installed because other people on different threads have had success with this process. Same Result. 


The stock PSU was 250w and i also upgraded to 450w so that is not it.  Any help would be appreciated....

Unless the BIOS version is 8.1x or newer, your PC's motherboard is too old to support anything newer than a Nvidia GT 6xx graphics card.


I think the BIOS version for that motherboard only goes up to v7.16.
