I want to upgrade my graphics card from a radeon 6850. I have a 600W EVGA PSU. My motherboard is a ipisb-ch2 (chicago). Yes it is 
According to this website: http://www.pc-specs.com/mobo/HP/HP_IPISB-CH2_%28Chicago%29/1627/Compatible_GPUs, the GTX 660 is compatible. However my gigabyte  GV-N660OC-3GD card does not work.
I get single beep after seeing the HP screen and that's it. Yes it is connected correctly. Is this computer simply impossible to upgrade?

Hello @Ticklebumps,
Welcome to the HP Forums, I hope you enjoy your experience! To help you get the most out of the HP Forums I would like to direct your attention to the HP Forums Guide First Time Here? Learn How to Post and More.
I have read your post on how your desktop is experiencing an issue with upgrading the graphics card, and I would be happy to assist you in this matter!
Since you mentioned that the power connections are properly hooked up between the graphics card and the power supply, I recommend removing the GPU and search for any potential BIOS updates for your computer. This can be done by following this resource on Using HP Support Assistant (Windows 7), as well as Updating the BIOS.
If the GPU is still not recognizable by your system, then the card is likely not going to work.
I hope this helps!
Best Regards
