Graphics Card update to AMD R7 240 - Vostro 460 Mini Tower - NO VIDEO SIGNAL!

Hi

I have a Vostro 460 MT from Dell.

The Specs:

i5-2400

8GB RAM

320GB HD

Stock PSU - 350W

I had a NVIDIA GT 210 card in previously which I sold and bought an R7 240 to upgrade with. When plugging in the R7 240 and booting up. I get NO VIDEO SIGNAL. NO BIOS SPLASH SCREEN etc.

NOW if I take the card out and use the onboard VGA it works fine. The NVIDIA GT 210 worked fine too.

Why does this card not work? Is there a solution to my problem?

The card does not work because that card requires CLASS 2.3.1 UEFI windows 8 or higher bios.

It does not support DOS VESA Video mode 103 and therefore it will NEVER work.

Can you provide me with an updated list of working Graphics Card for the Dell Vostro 460?
