Hello- I need some help with installing a new video card in my pc, please. The machine is brand new- HP Envy 700-515xt, Windows 7 Professional SP1, with Intel HD 4600 integrated graphics.

The issue I am having is not the actual video card installation, but achieving the correct setting(s) in the BIOS. The BIOS is AMI 80.11 date 4/1/2015, SMBIOS 2.8. It appears that the BIOS mode is set to Legacy, however I can't seem to find an option to disable the integrated graphics and enable the PCIe x 16 (Gen 3.0) Expansion Slot.

I have contacted HP Support, but they won't give me any support because they state that it will void the warranty.

Many thanks in advance for any and all help regarding this matter.

Late Intel chips switch by them selves no need to fool with the bios, depending on demand.  You can Google Intel Switchable graphics there are several articles out there.

Honesty & Integrity Above All!
