Solved!

The problem with the upgrade of the graphics card.

I had an Nvidia GT 640 video card installed,
I'm trying to install the GTX 750, but the computer doesn't see it. When you turn on the black screen and short beeps. Perhaps the problem is in an outdated BIOS? I would really like to solve this problem without replacing the motherboard.

Hi:

 

What BIOS version do you have installed?

 

In order to run a Nvidia GT 7xx or newer card, it needs to have a version 8.xx or newer BIOS version installed.

 

The GT 7xx cards won't work in a PC with a BIOS versions 7.xx or older.

 

Your PC's support page has version 8.17 BIOS update, but it is only supported to run in Windows 8.

 

I don't know what will happen if you run it in W10.

I think I found a solution to the problem. But I do not have the inscription Secure Boot Configuration in my BIOS, I attached a photo. Is this because I have a BIOS version 7.10?

Hi:

 

You would need to update the BIOS to one of the 8.xx versions on the support page.

 

Your PC originally came with W7, so there is no secure boot setting.

 

Again...no nVidia GT 7xx or newer card will work in a PC with a BIOS v7.xx or older.
