New graphics card shows black screen

HP 3300 Pro Sff
Microsoft Windows 8 (32-bit)

Hi guys,

 

I've done a fair bit of looking into this but I can't get a definitive answer. I recently bought a Gigabyte GeForce 750 TI OC Edition to go with my computer, knowing it would fit in the case. But ever since I've tried to install it, it has been a nightmare. It fires up, fans whirring and all but all I get is the HP BIOS screen, no imput commands and 3 quick beeps then it goes to an entirely black screen with a blinking underscore in the top left hand corner.

 

From what I've read around I have to enable Legacy mode in BIOS, but since my computer is running the HP 7.07 BIOS I can't find that it even remotely supports Legacy mode. Then I've read that some HP MoBo's cannot effectively run a different graphics card due to age/restrictions. It doesn't sound like a power issue as I've already upgraded the PSU with no issues.

 

I'd just love an answer to what exactly is the issue because it's driving me nuts and I'm pretty much ready to sell the card at this point.

 

IF I have infact bought a non-applicablegraphics card, could you recommend one that would ACTUALLY work?

 

Thanks again.

The HP 3300 SFF shipped with Win 7, and a BIOS that is not upgradeable to UEFI standards.

Look here at the new MSI cards that offer Legacy and UEFI.

So essentially I need to get a more compatible graphics card? So this one won't work at all?
