I’ve bought a new graphic card for my PC the other day which just wont work.

Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E7500, 2,93 Ghz
PC: HP Compaq DC7900 CMT
VGA: Intel Express Chipset 43/45Q
4 Gb RAM
360 GB HDD.
PSU: 365W

Windows 7

Default BIOS

 

Graphic Card: Nvidia GeForce GT630
PCI-E x 16
Minimum: 300W

Error: When I place the graphic card into the slot and turn on the PC, the LED blinks red, and the PC starts beeping (1 long, pause, 6 short). No image displayed on the monitor. If I leave it turned on and it repeats the beeping cycle 3 times, then the cooler starts to Hyperventilate. I turn it off at this point, because I’m affraid it my overheat.  

 

What I have tried up until now:
- turned off the VGA in BIOS and set it on PCI.
- reset the CMOS
- deleted the VGA driver from my PC
- tested the graphic card in another PC (PSU 300W) and it works.
- tried placing it in the PCI-E x16 and the x4 slot as well.

- checked compatibility, it should be compatible.

The PC is also new (6 months old).

 

Any ideeas?

HP does have a 1 long 6 short error code. On HP 6 beeps mean -Pre-video memory error. Which I have no ideea how to fix. On other websites a 1 long, 6 short means: Unable to load interrupt vectors- The BIOS was unable to load the interrupt vectors into memory
- what does this mean? And how can it be fixed?

According tp HP's site for that model, it doesn't say 1 long beep and then 6 short beeps, it says "Blinks red and beeps 6 times".

 

  • Pre-video graphics error - Blinks red and beeps six times.

    For systems with a graphics card:

    1. Reseat the graphics card and then power on the system.
    2. Replace the graphics card.
    3. Replace the system board.*

    *For systems with integrated (on-board) graphics, replace the system board.

Tried reseating it. Still the same problem. Graphics card is ok. It works in another PC.

Have you tried flashing the BIOS to the latest version from HP?
