Have you tried looking at the system specs......

.... which should have been provided to you when you purchased the computer.

You might even try looking in the User's Manual.

And, you can usually find that information at the HP web site. I searched and found THIS:

It says you have graphics built into the motherboard.
Graphics Integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900

You also have the following, any of which can support an external video card if you purchase the correct type.

PCI Slots

* 2 low-profile (2.5 inches), length (6.6 inches) standard
* 2 full-height (4.2 inches), length (6.875 inches) via optional riser card

NOTE: Express x1 and x16 skits are not supported with the riser card option.


PCI Express x16 slot 1 low-profile (2.5 inches), length (6.6 inches)

PCI Express x1 slot 1 low-profile (2.5 inches), length (6.6 inches)

No, it will not fit without buying the optional riser board which adapts the low profile slot so that it can accomodate a standard profile card. Low profile means cards that are shorter than standard height cards.

The card your brother bought specifically states: Low Profile No
