HP Pavilion HPE h8-1170uk incapable with evga geforce gtx 750ti sc

So i recently wanted to upgrade my graphics card to the evga geforce gtx 750ti sc. However after research, i believe that my motherboard, IPISB-CH2 (Chicago) cannot support this as a version 8 bios is required for the graphics card to work. Upon installing graphics card, i was brought into a blue screen with esc which didn't work and numerous beeping sounds another after another. So my question is, whether its possible to update my motherboard to bios version 8 or whether theres any other budget motherboards which works completely fine with this graphics card. Also whether there is any other graphics card which can work with this setup instead. Thanks
