Solved!

Pci-e 2 slot made to be to small for extenders to fit in.

HP Recommended
Pavilion 550-a114
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I wanted to add a graphics card to my pavilion 550-a114. I was gonna power the graphics card from a different power supply butttt, the i believe the pci-e is made only for that network adapter. I have a pci-e 2 extender but you know, it's to big. I don't mind if you guys don't prefer for your computers to be upgraded depending on the computer the person is using but I spent the money for the parts and I just wanted to know if I'm doing something wrong or if you guys have your own manufactured extender for that.

The following link shows specs of your machine

It has no room, again NO ROOM for you to add a video card. The  PCI Express half-length mini card socket  is designed for a wireless card ONLY, it does NOT have enough bandwidth to support a video card.

 

Please don't try to re-engineer it, this is not going to work.

 

Regards.
