HP Pavilion HPE h8-1260t CTO with Nvidia GTX1060 Graphics Card

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion HPE h8-1260t CTO
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Purchased Nvidia GTX 1060

 

I have:  HP Pavilion HPE h8-1260t CTO Desktop PC

 

 

Graphics card requires:

6pin power, which I have

PICe16 slot, which I have

Minimum 400W power supply, which I have

 

Installed it.  

 

Boots to mobo post screen, does a standard POST beep, then pauses several seconds, does one long and three short beeps( which means no video card).

 

Looked up the symptoms, found that I should:

clear CMOS and check, which did not work.

Update the BIOS, which did not work.  (from 7.11 to 7.12 as that is the only update HP offers)

 

Am now at a loss and would request some help.

 

Thank you.

@jasonkretzer, welcome to the forum.

 

The problem that you are experiencing is caused by the fact that the motherboard doesn't have UEFI.  It has to be a ver. 8 BIOS.  The GTX 1060 requires UEFI.  There is no way to upgrade the BIOS to UEFI.  The last  video cards not to require UEFI were the GTX 660/670's.

 

MSI does make some of their models with a switch that will allow the cards to be used with either Legacy or UEFI.  The one that I know for certain that has it is the GTX 750Ti.  You can contact their Tech Support for help with choosing the best card for your computer.
