The cable doesn't appear to be the problem. I assume you tried restarting the system. See if the GPU is enabled in BIOS. Otherwise It could be the GPU itself or its driver.

Are there any errors showing in Device Manager under "Display adapters"?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Have you installed the drivers?

HP 3300 appears to be a printer. Post your computer model. If custom built then post the motherboard model. Is your new card a low profile card? If so, does your case require a low profile card?

So you bought the card a week ago. Did it ever work?

If the card has a power connector is it attached?

As already mentioned, do you need to enable it in cmos/bios setup?

GT610 does not need a separate power connector.
Based on the answers it is most likely the BIOS GPU settings need to be reset to PCIe as primary.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Expanding on Finger's comments....

The GT 610 is a low end card & doesn't require additional power. It's a rebranded GT 520 & isn't much better than the i3's integrated graphics. The major benefit is that it has dedicated memory. Make sure it's fully seated in its slot & the monitor cable is connected to the card. It should work immediately, at least to be able to enter the BIOS & tweak the settings. The integrated graphics should be disabled & the PCIe slot set as the primary display.

Do you hear any beeps when the card is in place?
