Computer can't detect new Asus graphics card

Hi. I have just bought new Asus R7 250 GPU, but when I put it in PCIe slot and boot PC, it can't detect it and still runs on onboard GPU. Onboard graphics should auto disable itself when there's another GPU. I tried other GPUs in my PC and it worked fine, all I had to do was install GPU to slot and it worked. R7 250 was tested in another PC so it's OK. Should I flash my BIOS? My mobo is MSI MS-7253 K9VGM-V. Please help!

With some motherboard BIOS types you have to select the PCI-Express port as the active port you wish to use for graphics, currently it will be set to "integrated" or "on-board", which is why the on-board GPU is still active.

Change it to "PCI-Express" in BIOS settings, then "save and exit" (F10)

I had to do that when I fitted a PCI-E graphics card to my PC last month, couldn't understand why i was getting no signal from it until I looked carefully at the BIOS settings, then I realised what needed to be done.

It's already set to PCIexpress, I also downloaded latest drivers for GPU. When I boot PC, before POST beep, I hear like "tick" sounds not beeps coming from system speaker. Does it means something?
