Hi I just bought a new graphic card for my p6-2055sc and it makes 6 beeps when trying booting up.
The new graphic card is Geforce GTX 750ti
I cant get it to work.
Have tried to find the latest BIOS but the latest one is from 2012 😕
Please help me.

I would say you a couple of problems...
1) Your computer shipped with a 300 watt power supply and it must be replaced with a 500 or 600 watt unit to use a GTX 750 Ti.
2) The GTX 750 Ti may be incompatible with your computer due to possible differences in the UEFI revisioned use by the card and the motherboard. It is unlikely that HP will provide a BIOS update for the motherboard used in your computer.
If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

the 750ti is a very low powered card and it should at least boot to windows on a 300w psu even if it runs in to trouble running games, a uefi bios has nothing to do with a gfx card compatibility and likely more to do with hp restricting certain gfx cards on their bios, best solution keep the 750ti, buy a proper unlocked motherboard and buy a decent psu from a decent brand like seasonic which will have decent ampage on the 12v rail to handle a decent gfx card - about 450 watts, (thers no way a 750ti needs 600 watts on a decent psu - you could run a 780ti on that) then it will work.

Return the the video card and get a MSI 750 or 750TI "N" model. Check out this thread.

Thanks for the quick answers. I think i will buy a new motherboard or a upgrade package. Is it possible that someone can answer if this all would work together ?
I thinking of buying this sort of upgrade package when im still on a "spending money spree".
- 748721 - Intel® LGA1155 Core i5-3470, Socket-LGA1155, Quad Core, 3.2Ghz, 6MB, Boxed w/fan
- 749862 - MSI B75MA-P45, Socket-1155
- 744179 - Crucial DDR3 BallistiX Sport 1600Mhz 8GB KIT
I Have a PSU 500W. Is it possible that anyone can do the math and tell me if this will work, with the GTX750Ti.
Or eventully this package

If that motherboard is standard atx you might want to check the case is compatible with atx motherboards as accoring to the datasheet on that hp model, their is a miniatx motherboard in it atm. a 750ti will be fine on 500 watts, it doesnt even require any extra pcie connectors on the psu, it only uses 60 watts power at load, so 400 watts would be minmum for whole system, id recommend though checking the brand of your psu to make sure its quality, something like corsair, seasonic, coolermaster, antec etc. bad quality no named psus have low ampage where it matters for a gfx card and can blow under pressure even if its a high stated wattage. consider a z87/97 motherbaord and a i5 4670k if you want to overclock the cpu at some point.

yes that psu is decent, fractal design get decent reviews and its 80+bronze certified, id have no problem powering a 750ti with a 500 watt one of those.
on the hp motherboard check the following options in bios (some or all might not be there!) just incase, if this happens to work i still recomend the 500 watt psu with it, instead of the original 300 watt one.
secure boot - disable it
legacy oprom - enable it
legacy mode - enable it
change boot mode from uefi to csm
ultra fast boot (or some variation) - disable it.
