Trouble installing Asus GTX 750 ti into pre-built h8-1114 computer

I've had this computer (HP h8-1114) since 2012, and unfortunately I've been stuck with the built-in graphics card since I got it. It malfunctions. I've drawn to the conclusion that it's the fan, because I can't even keep the case closed anymore, I literally have to have a fan sit next to the computer while it's open so that it doesn't crash. I've been doing this for 3 years now.

So around November, or December, I forgot when exactly, I bought an Asus Nvidia GTX 750 ti. I found out that my power supply wasn't compatible with the card because it didn't have a 6-pin cable. So I gave up, and kept the card laying on my dresser for months (I kept it in a bag that game in with it, no worries, hopefully). Then I moved recently, and I bought a power supply with a 6-pin cable. To be more specific it's an Antec VP-450 Power Supply. I read it worked with the GTX 750 ti so I bought it.

Well I got the power supply installed and I've been using it ever since, but the graphics card still doesn't work. When the new card is in, it boots up, but doesn't go beyond the boot screen. It beeps 4 times after 20 seconds, then after the 4th time the screen just goes black. I can't afford anything else right now because now I'm out of a job and I'm on the verge of giving up if I don't find a solution to this.

To clarify, the PC's motherboard is a IPISB-CU (Carmel2), from what I've read.

Anyway if anyone can help, I would appreciate it.

    The motherboard may just not work with the card, some of the OEM motherboards just don't play well with higher end cards.

    You can try checking for a BIOS update. You have all the power plugged into the card right? Just having the connector won't help if you don't use it.
  2. Yes, I have the power plugged into the card. Or I did when I was trying to get it to work. I'll give it another shot.
