    Hi
    I've just got a HP EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF on eBay. It seems to work OK except when I try to add a graphics card (Asus GT710) and network card (TPLink WN881ND).
    The graphics card is never recognised and the newtork card causes fatal errors when I load software/drivers.

    I've tried changing bios settings but am I missing something...

    oh...

    Thanks for this. Does not surprise me really, but I had this card and knew it worked...
    The network card does not show up without graphics card installed. The tplink driver installation wizard (app?) checks for it, then continues to load (so it must have found it) but when it gets to 54% it stops and windows gives me the blue screen of unfixable error :(

    You can try the Network card in the larger slot if you remove the Graphics card from it, it should go as far to the edge of the motherboard as possible.
