New GPU can't work

HP Recommended

Hello!
My friend was buying a new graphics card GTX750Ti, 3 days ago. He has HP P6-2006gr.
New card can't work in his computer. Why? Is it caused by BIOS whitelist?
If yes, can my friend buy new motherboard and use CPU and HDD from old
motherboard, or are CPU and HDD blocked, that they work only in original HP motherboard?
(sorry for my bad english)

@old_geekster 

That model desktop is a greek model. Go here and then use translation.

 

 

@asakura 

Did your friend upgrade the PSU and connect the PCIe six-pin connector to the new video card?

What is the brand and model of the GeForce GTX 750ti video card. The details are important.

 

Do you know which motherboard is installed? It can be an Arrowwood, Arrowwood E, Carmel2, Cupertino2,Holly,  or a Pau Brazil2 unit. We need to know which one your friend's desktop PC has.

Motherboard is Foxconn 2abf.

GPU has not 6-pin connector for PSU.

We upgraded PSU to 450W , but still not work 😕

OK. That is the Cupertino2 motherboard.

 

The BIOS for the video card is a UEFI vBIOS. It won't work with an old style BIOS unless the manufacturer has a workaround that will allow you to switch the BIOS from UEFI to Legacy mode.

 

 Other manufacturers make cards that will work. Check at Gigabyte support and ask them why there is no UEFI\Legacy BIOS utility .

Ok, my friend choose mainboard: MSI B75MA-P45 with PSU: Corsair VS550.
Can he use CPU from this HP computer, or HP block CPU only for Foxconn 2ABF? This some question for HDD.
Sorry for my english.
