did you disable onboard video in the bios? I assume it has onboard video.

does ur onboard videocard boot up?

if so u might have to disable it in the bios so it uses ur pci-e lane.

Then it think your pc has pci exp 1.0slot so that is why hd 5450 doesnot work as it is pci 2.1 and also no bios update.so you should get nvidia as they are pci 2.0gpu and compaitable with pci 1.0 slot.

he has a pci-express 16x and pci slot.

no reason it shouldnt work.

pci exp 2.1 have problems with old pci 1.0slot mobo. See here in pci 2.1 section - http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express
