Hi:

 

Looking at the BIOS revision for your PC's motherboard, the latest BIOS update is 7.16.

 

In order to run any nVidia card beyond the GT 6xx series your PC must have a BIOS revision of 8.xx or newer.

 

So, the GT 730 will not work in your PC.

 

Find a used but tested and working legacy graphics card on eBay that works with the legacy BIOS your PC has.

 

If your nVidia GeForce GT 520 graphics card is broken, you may just want to find a used but tested and working one on eBay.

 

I suggest buying a NVidia GT 630 or GT 610 in used but tested and working condition.

Ciao ho contattato il servizio clienti HP e mi hanno dato l'ultimo aggiornamento f 7.23, pensi che ora potrei installare una GeForce GT 710? Grazie in anticipo.

 

Qualcuno può avere bisogno.

Hi:

 

No, the BIOS has to be at version 8.xx.

 

I highly doubt that the GT 710 will work with BIOS v7.23.
