GTX 750 Ti with OEM HP PC NOT Working? What to Do?

When I bought an OEM HP 3300 SFF PC, I thought I got a bargain that would be good for gaming. However upon adding the Galaxy GTX 750 ti into it, it would encounter boot problems and wouldn't start properly and would just get stuck at the VGA Bios Boot Screen... so today we are going to try and get this to work, and if we can't then... perhaps we can do something else..? Issues that to go through arise from secure boot state support, bios updates to changing power supplies.

    HP model HPE-170t works flawlessly with my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750ti. Had a Customer in a big box store that was just gonna toss the PC. I told him it was still good and just needed a new Video Card since the On-Board was out.. he was impressed with my honesty so he let me have it after buying HP's new model.

  • Bloy-182

    I have the same problem. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1030 wouldn't go last bios boot. Why do you think a zotac would work as they're the same hardware but it's only the cooler that's made my zotac ?

    Same problem with the gtx 1050ti

  • budget gamer2017

    Try holding f8 right after you start it? My old hp sometimes didn’t boot up and that’s the only way I could get it to boot

  • Mikkel Pedersen

    I have 2 HP Desktops exactly like the one on the motherboards driver site, got them from my friends who both wanted better gaming preformance. Turned out that i had to replace both motherboard, cpu and THEN buy new gpus because of this exact problem.So currently i am stuck with 2 Cupertino2 motherboards and their i5-23xx processors... a fix for this would be outta this world. :V

  • smackers1514

    Had this issue with a hp pavilion had to turn off secure boot and turn on legacy mode, pc works perfect now.

  • Reiden Lightman

    What to do? Get a low profile 1050 because it will be better and around the same price anyway. Seriously, I've never actually seen a 750ti being sold for less than a 1050. Just my first impression from reading the title and seeing that this was released in September 2017. I cannot justify even considering a 750ti in this day and age.But yeah, it sucks that you can't just slap in any graphics card into any pre-built PC. My friend bought a PC on sale and looked at what graphics cards were compatible, and the EVGA GT 210 was part of the compatibility list, but it didn't work when I installed it into his machine. I tested my own 1050 (which means I ripped it out of my machine to test it) which worked in it just fine. Then I tested a Fire3D 4800v2 (something like that) and it worked just fine. So, I took the 210 off his hands and let him use the 4800.

    having the same issue with a Dell Poweredge T110 2, latest BIOS, strangely BIOS was released in March 2018, GTX750Ti not working, stuck on BIOS screen.

  • eEds35

    Little bit about writing different VGA bios - its possible. You have to compare power delivery controlers and memory whats installed on gpu. I have flashed 780ti EVGA ACX SC bios on 780ti reference board and mounted ACX cooling with modifications. Works like a charm with 1100Mhz+ .

  • Flinch

    A passively cooled small form factor GT1030 is the best way to go, especially if you take out the CD drive to free up 10 more watts. You can even put one in a HP 4300 or HP 6200 small form factor office computer with a 220 watt power supply and it'll run. With passive cooling you're freeing up just a little bit more wattage. Also, you can always dremel a window out of the side of the removable chassis door, lay black mesh over the hole, and make the dremeled border look nice with some black foam so that you have some more breathing room.

  • monkins1010

    HERes how to fix it, put in a card that does work e.g. old AMD card... go into the bios and enable the on board graphics. save and boot into windows using on board. then turn off the computerThen, swap the old amd card for the gtx card then make sure the monitor is plugged into the onboard graphics and power up. go into bios and make sure onboard is still default. save and boot. you should then boot into windows.the pc will use the onboards grphics bios., then eventuall you can swap to the gtx, and you wont see any windows booting screens but windows will kick in

  • Jeley Garcia

  • gaibi gangmei

    Can I flash gtx750 to 550ti so that my motherboard will accept it

  • Rosalie

    You ever get this thing to work? I've heard of a few solutions. Some of these GTX 750's apparently have a Legacy Bios switch on them to change from UEFI to Legacy? I've also read from a few ppl online that you have to disabled Secure Boot first using another card then trying the 750 ti after.

  • Bige4u

    Well that blows... i have a DELL Inspiron 530 that was produced back in 2007, updated the BIOS many years ago to the latest(last) one from the dell website, dropped in an EVGA GTX750Ti around 3yrs ago and it worked right off the bat, also with an upgraded E8600 cpu, 4gb of system memory and an antec 430w psu, but still using the original motherboard.

  • SysPowerTools

    Why don't you just call HP? they can usually unlock it with their support tool. Dell has done the same for me at my little shop when either upgrading components or just changing the os when the bios is password protected. Make sure your doing something else though so you spend that 30 min on hold efficiently. Like editing a video and eating.

  • Blazing Hardware

    Hi Brian, if you are still interested here is how i got it to work...I got an R9 280x working(without this trick,it just worked fine no hassle, and a Quadro K600 with this method. I also had the Cupertino2 (HP Pro 3300mt)Enable postcodes in your bios(so no splashscreen)reboot, (now youre stuck on postcodescreen and now you see press escape to enter setup)then wait for the 2 beebs the press and hold escape after 10 seconds when the 2nd beeb has beeped, you should now boot into windows.Have a good one mate!

    why my mobo asrock a780gm-le is not detected nvidia gtx 750 ti 2gb my integrated graphics only detected on PCI Express in bios my pcie 2.0 x16 only my mobo.

  • Carl Johnson

    Did you try turning off secure boot in bios? Watch a youtube video on how to turn it off.Use iGPU first or another supported GPUSadly, HP locks to what GPU you can upgrade to. HP themselves said that disabling secure boot would turn off that restriction. I have not tried this as I do not have the money to waste trying to upgrade my HP Pavilion Slimline. However, people on the internet claims that this method works. I hope that you read this. I will comment this on a new video of yours just in case...

  • Graham Johnson

    IMHO the problem is GTX cards need UEFI BIOS and won't work with legacy BIOS.The MSI GTX 750 ti has a switch on the graphics card that can be set to legacy BIOS.
