Solved!

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

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.

@RoodyJammer

 

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.
