@kerolos-elia-12 , welcome to the forum.

 

According to the information that I could find on your computer it was released in 2011.  This means that it most likely doesn't have UEFI in the motherboard: https://www.howtogeek.com/56958/HTG-EXPLAINS-HOW-UEFI-WILL-REPLACE-THE-BIOS/

 

HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012.  This means that the GTX 1660 Super will not be compatible with your motherboard.  The last series to not require UEFI are the GTX 660/670's.
