Is a PCie2 x16 compatible with my xc-1660 .... It wont boot with the card plugged in!

Hi I have recently purchased an Acer xc 1660 and am attempting to transfer an old graphics card so i can run 3 screens

the card id an ACER GT610 -SL - 1GD3, it works fine on my old system, (gen 4 core i5 windows 10)  its spec says its PCIE2 x16

I know its probably an old card but i am only using it for office applications so performance is not the key issue

When i install it in my Acer it wont boot, nothing displays no messages except for a single beep 

any help would be appreciated

    Yeah, that slot is PCIe x16 4.0 and may not be fully backward compatible with that old 2.0 card... Maybe a USB to HDMI adapter to drive the third monitor? Or the cheapest modern GPU with three outputs.
