Hello @SteveCapouch,

 

Welcome to the HP Forums, I hope you enjoy your experience! To help you get the most out of the HP Forums I would like to direct your attention to the HP Forums Guide First Time Here? Learn How to Post and More.

 

I have read your post on how you are attempting to upgrade the graphics card for your desktop computer, and I would be happy to help you in this matter!

 

According to the product specifications for your desktop, the maximum settings that your system can support for a new grpahics card are as follows:

 

  • PCI Express x16 (Generation 1) Expansion slot
  • Power Supply 250w

The AMD Radeon R7 240 card you have installed is a PCI Express x17 (Generation 3.0), which is not compatible with the PCI bus on the motherboard.

 

I hope this helps!

 

Best Regards 🙂
