I just bought a used HP PRO 3300 MT (i7-2600,8GB,500GB).
It came with a old HD 6670 1GB GPU, which I assumed worked with the computer. However when I turn on the computer with the GPU in the PCI slot nothing displays (Tried with the cable in the GPU and in onboard graphics). When I pull the GPU out the display now works. I'm not sure what is happening but I assume it might be something to do with the old BIOS
I have tried a couple of ways, using the cmd inside windows which says System bios image corrupt. Trying from a freedos bootable says the program can't be started from DOS. I'm running out of ideas. If anyone has successfully updated the bios in this PC would you please let me know how it was done!!
If the computer worked with this card why should you update bios now
You bought a used computer, but what does the seller say? The configuration for this type of product, may be different, but if we look here, the card is not mentioned .. is it therefore an addition, the original graphics card ..?
