Hello, I am updating a stock HP Pavilion HPE h9-1130 Phoenix Desktop.
I have purchased a GTX 770 (4gb) and an XFX 750w psu. I installed both and when I go to boot my computer, all it does is stay at the blue hp screen and say "Press esc to access the startup menu" but when I press esc it just takes me to a black screen listing my system specs.
The motherboard in this unit is an M3970AM-HP (Angelica) and the latest bios update for this motherboard was in april of 2012. Is the bios the issue here?
If so then do you have a recommendation for a motherboard that would work well with the GTX 770 and the FX-8120 cpu? I've never replaced a motherboard and honestly I'm a bit scared to do so.
The full specs of the pc I have are here HP Pavilion HPE h9-1130 Phoenix Desktop PC Product Specifications | HP« Support
If I put the old stock HD 7670 back in, the pc boots fine. I have already uninstalled all of the video drivers for that card so I'm a bit lost here. I read that it may be the motherboard and I just want to confirm that.
I apologize if this is in the wrong section. This is my first time posting. If it is, please let me know where to post this and I'll copy it to the correct section.
I really appreciate any help
