I recently purchased a new desktop PC: HP p7-1423w, i5-3330, HD Graphics 2500 (integrated). The first thing I did was remove Windows 8 and install Linux. A few days later, I was ready to install a graphics card that I already owned (NVIDIA GEFORCE GT 610 -- PCI Express 2.0).
When I insert the graphics card and turn on power, I get beeping and there is no display from either the discrete or the integrated graphics.
I can remove the card and work with the BIOS, but there isn't any setting that seems like it would improve this situation.
I actually had the same problem a few days earlier with a totally different computer (Gateway/AMD), which I decided to return. This makes me think that the problem relates to Windows 8 and the newer "UEFI" BIOS associated with that.
Are there known problems and solutions for installing discrete graphics in computers that are designed for Windows 8 but now run only Linux?
