Problems in upgrading to GTX 750 TI

Product Name: HP Pavilion HPE h8-1205eo
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Okay so, im pretty noob about upgrading computer and so on, but about a week ago my Amd Radeon HD 7570 broke down

after 3 years of use... Now i want to get a new graphic card and i bought GTX 750 TI yesterday.  Everything went well until i

tried to boot my computer, it started up but froze on the ''Press ESC for startup menu''- screen and about every 40 seconds the computer made a beep sound. The sound happened like 3 times and after that i heard 2-3 fast beeps and the screen went on like sleep mode, or  atleast black.  I tried updating bios and deleted all my amd drivers but still this happens. I have tried to search for an answer for this problem but i just cant solve it. I read about disabling security boot and legacy modes in bios but i have Win7 and isnt those things for win8? But yeah any help would be good!

Hi,

 

The NVIDIA 7xx graphics cards with some exceptions will not work in a HP PC with a version7 BIOS.

Re: Problems in upgrading to GTX 750 TI

Ah okay, and i think i have undestood that there isnt version 8 of bios for HP PC or atleast Windows 7 am i right? If so do you think i should get some graph card of type gtx 600 ? Or any amd cards you would recommend? Oh and thanks beforehand, i have tried looking trough HP sites and everyother computer sites for about 2 days :D ima bit frustrated for my own stupidity. And by the way, i have seen your answers in most cases and im glad it was you who answered as weird as it sounds :^D

And im thinking that does upgrading to win8 make the situation different? Would the graph card work with win8?

Hi,

 

I doubt if W8 will change your situation.

Hi,

 

You are using Windows 7 so secure boot doesn't apply.

Re: Problems in upgrading to GTX 750 TI

Ok I know this is an old post but I hav an HP pro 3405 with an bios date of 8-16-2011 version 7.06 and I have had no problem installing a GTX 750 ti in it. Booted right up. It's the EVGA one also and not the MSI one with the switch on it. Not sure why it works in mine and not others. It sounds like no one here can make it work and that HP experts say there is no way to either. But it does on mine. So I don't think you should say it won't for sure. My system isn't all that but it works.

 

AMD A8 3870k 3GHz

8GB RAM DDR3

Pegatron 2ACF motherboard

 

And now

 

EVGA Geforce GTX 750 ti 2GB GDDR5

 

So maybe hope for others
