Compatible graphics cards

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion P6750
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello this is my old pc but I want to use him again. The graphics card wasn't working very well so I bought a gtx 970 but that card wasn't working so I don't know which cards are compatible.

Someone who can help me?

Hi:

 

Your PC has a legacy BIOS and a BIOS version 6.11 at the most.

 

In order to run a GTX970, your PC has to have a UEFI BIOS with a BIOS version of 8.xx or newer.

 

That is why the card didn't work.

 

With your PC, you cannot go beyond a nVidia GT(X) 6xx series or an AMD Radeon HD 6xxx series graphics card.

 

It would be hard and/or expensive to find one of these legacy graphics cards in new condition, so I suggest that you find a used but tested and working graphics card on eBay.
