Salutations. I recently purchased a Graphics Card to get my gaming into gear a little better, and have found that I might have purchased a Graphics card that some element of my system cannot handle.
As I said, I have an Hp Compaq DC5800 MT. I purchased an Nvidia GeForce GT650. I took out my old Graphics card (Did not uninstall old drivers) and I got a beeping Error Code of 6 Beeps (Graphics/Video Error). The computer refused to boot up at all.
I reinstalled my old card, and it started up normally. I shut down again after doing some research (I found only a small amount of info) and I reinstalled the GT 650. I connected the monitor to the Mobo Graphics. Still got the same Error message. (perhaps Onboard graphics are disabled in the BIOS?)
I'm not super good with computers, so I am at best guessing/going off things I've read on various forums.
I guess my questions start with: Should this Graphics card work with my Mobo/Power supply given that I run a DC5800 MT?
If so...what am I doing wrong with the Installation?
Thanks in advance for any info anyone is able to provide!
