Solved!

Why there is no BIOS update for this better than 7.16?

HP Pavilion p6-2100ET
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, I bought a new graphic card for my HP Pavilion p6-2100et. an RX 550 but when build it in I can't get a signal. There is a 7.14 BIOS version on HP Site but on Foxconn site It's closed rn there is 8.** I dont know the rest but It is 2014 and on hp one It's 2012 so I think It should work on 2014 version so what can I do about this.

@MelankolikBarbi,

The HP p6 series of computers dates back to Jan 2012.  The BIOS is called "legacy", and can not work with modern UEFI cards like the RX550.  Because the original OS was WIN 7 , once you upgraded to WIN 10, you lost any ability to a BIOS update, even IF it were available.  The 7.16 BIOS is the only BIOS certified to work.

If it does have UEFI, then go into the BIOS and turn off secure boot

Hi I literally tried everything but there is really no way to open these cards on legacy UEFI there is a bit of chance that you can use it on them but It's really not worth it and bit of a luck u just have to try all cards sapphire asus... I have switched to another motherboard that is UEFI work perfectly fine but If u got have UEFI bios and card work it just try Secure Boot.
