      I just purchased this computer and I am glad I had a monitor with an HDMI port because,This computer only has the capabilities of connecting to a monitor by HDMI port and cable.

      Can this computer handle a 10inch or so Graphic Card?   (3 Answers)

      I went to local best buy they didn't have one. I plan to put a Graphics card that's around 10 inches long. Most Graphics cards that aren't totally low quality are usually around 8+ inches long. I'm concerned about room, as I can't find any info / pictures of its inside. Just curious and please HP in the future consider these "Upgrade Issues" with regards to size of components in the future. I left HP cause of the upside down motherboard layout. ( I can deal with it now ) but room for large GPUs are a must these days.

        Answer

        The interior configuration of this computer does not allow for a 10" graphics card, but most manufacturers offer "short" versions of the same graphics cards. This computer could easily handle an 8" card.

        what graphics card does this pc have and can I upgrade to a different brand of graphics card?   (3 Answers)

        All I see in accessories is the processor. I want to know what graphics card is installed, the brand name and model. If it is an Intel graphics card I want to know what model of Intel it is. It is an i7 which is a plus in my book, but I want the exact model of graphics card. I also want to know if I can change the graphics card from its already installed one and could the pc handle a different card.

          Answer

          It doesn't have a graphics card. It has on board graphics (Intel HD Graphics 530). I installed a new card in the PCI-Express slot and am gaming in 4K!! (will probably need to replace the stock power supply)

          Some Envy 750-124 reviews report wake up and shut down problems.   (4 Answers)

          Did anyone (e.g., HP) figure out why these problems turned up on some machines reviewed in November, 2015, and how to fix the problem? I would not buy a computer, regardless of price, if it could not wake up from the "sleep" mode, or shutdown without having to pull the plug.

            Simple, defective pc, take it back, this machine is amazing if you know how to set it up and get the settings correctly it WILL work perfectly, but if you can't turn it 'on' or "off' it's defective.

                The wireless uses radio waves, not optical like a remote so it will work just fine under the desk.

                  Good question. The CD drive is on the front of the desktop behind the vertical silver portion. It is kept hidden. I hope this helps.

                  Doesn't come with one. The first thing I did when I got mine was purchase Acronis True Image and clone the 2TB drive to a 480gb SSD. Makes it blazing fast.
