OEM Motherboard and New GPU Problem

I created a thread on another forum earlier today about an issue I'm having with a new graphics card and power supply I'm trying to install in a prebuilt HP Desktop. (Model H8-1234)

The graphics card is a Gigabyte 760 GTX - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125466

The power supply is 600W and my system does not seem to have an issue with the PSU as it boots up using the old AMD HD 7450 that came with the PC. The 760 however causes my system to freeze at the HP splash screen with an unresponsive keyboard.

Anyway in the other thread it was suggested that my motherboard may be having an issue with the card. The h8-1234 has an Angelica2 micro atx motherboard.

Here is a link to it - http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&docname=c03353629

Is it possible that my motherboard is the issue here? I cannot seem to find any BIOS 'enable legacy support' options.

    did you try the card on another pc ? try it and see ...
  2. You might be having driver issues, try using the old card and reinstalling windows, then pop in the 760 and install the right driver.

    Hello, I had/have the exact same problem as you. I have a GTX 770, and I tried to use it with my custom prebuilt motherboard and it froze on startup splash. I tried updating the bios, but to no avail. I tried the card in my friends custom built system and it surprisingly worked. Right now, I'm ordering a new motherboard. You'l probably have to do the same.
