HP Envy Phoenix 810-430qe and Nvidia GTX 1080 graphics card

Q: HP Envy Phoenix 810-430qe and Nvidia GTX 1080 graphics card

Has anyone installed a GTX 1080 in their Phoenix yet? I ordered my new GTX 1080 yesterday directly from Nvidia and it will be here next week. I am upgrading from a 4GB EVGA GTX 960 FTW card that has currently been in my Phoenix for a bit over a year now.

I want to upgrade the New Nvidia 1080 GTX founders on this computer.  I noticed inside the tower on the power supply it reads 470W and on the specs it says 500W. Will this be an issue since Nvidia recommends 500W for this card.  Will this card fit inside the tower. It is about 1 inch longer then the exist GTX960.  Can the current  motherboard and cooling system handle this new card.   Any input and advice is much appreciated.  thx

Any advice on whether there is room to add a Firewire card/port on the 810 running windows 10? Any thoughts on an appropriate model 1394 card to best be compatible? I'm looking to digitize all my old camcorder tapes and my old rig with a firewire port is toast : ( Any guidance would be most appreciated!

When I bought my HP ENVY Phoenix 810-430qe, I had the option to get the GTX 980 card (which I should have done) but I opted for the 745 OEM. I want to upgrade my graphics card to the GTX 980 and noticed that some cards are made a little differently. My question is which card is fully compatible with my computer and which one do you all recommend? http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-980/buy-gpu Thanks!

A:HP ENVY Phoenix 810-430qe Graphic Card Hardware Upgrade

Greetings, We know your system will run a GTX 980. Two items to verify are Power Supply (PS) requirement and card dimensions. You'll also need a combination of 6 pin or 8 pin additional (PS) power connectors to run the card.  The manufacturer should provide an adapter to make it work. You can run a 980 on a 500 Watt PS. A 980Ti needs 600 W or better. Check clearance from the back input-output panel where the 745 is now. The 980 cards are usually 10+ inches in length. The 980 cards are double slot so you'll probably have to pop a backplate to install the card. Cheers!

HP has enabled overclocking from the factory. I did not turn it on as it was already enabled. To verify this. I even reset bios to apply defaults and it was still enabled. This system also comes with a liquid cooling solution. The settings are limited. I will post a picture. But, I wanted to know where does one start with these settings. Doing a friendly overclock. I don't see why it could not easily hit 4.2 to 4.3GHz? Any thing past that I would consider it more of an aggressive oc?  I personally don't feel the want or need to oc atm. As 4.0GHz is plenty fast enough stock right now. But, it is there in the future if need be.

I have noticed HP providing newer bios update for systems using the same motherboard and specs. Why is the newer bios not posted for my said pc? And is it safe flashing to the newest bios even though they are listed for other systems with same specs? I am on version A0.08 and HP has updated them to A0.12 Example for this system here http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/HP-ENVY-750-100-Desktop-PC-series/8499646/model/8501... Also note. I am on and using Windows 10 myself. Those newer bios are for Windows 10. I personally think HP has just for got to list the new bios update for my pc. They need to update the driver page.

a few days ago i bought the hp envy phoenix 860-000nd.Within the shown specifications i saw it would contain a Nvidia geforce GTX 970 graphics-card. When i opened the desktop by unscrewing the tumbscrew i saw a graphics-card that looked nothing like the Nvidia i saw on the website of Nvidia. Since there is no other brand name or somthing like that visible i was wondering what card it is and why i don't have the card that was "promised" in the productinformation.i hope someone can help me with this question because i get the feeling i got scammed or something. (note; i bought the desktop from HPstore)

I bought an HP Envy 860-121 Desktop in April 2016 , and it came with the Nvidia 970GTX gaming card.I told the store from which I bought it, before I ordered it, that I do  not play games, but make a living drawing in graphics.I want to put a different Nvidia card in the computer, because I am not achieving needed finishes with the 970GTX. I found out from Nvidia, that I must have a Quadro Card for graphics, not a gaming card. I purchased on line an Nvidia Quadro 2000. I installed it, but the computer will not start and I get 3 long beeps then 3 short beeps. I have contacted HP to ask what video cards work in my motherboard and they tell me to call Nvidia. Nvidia says to call HP. Does anyone know where you can go to match your Motherboard with Video cards?

I need to know if someone can assist over at HP and look into this. Does HP have a bios update for my said model Phoenix? Maybe never been posted? Currently my bios version is A0.08. That current version I have installed. When I installed it a few months ago. It was taken down shortly after from the support page for my pc. It has never been posted again. I would like to know if a newer version exist and maybe HP just never bothered to post the update for it? Why was it even pulled in the first place when HP posted it back then? I am on Windows 10 64 bit. And back then when this current version I am on was posted. It was posted under Windows 10 driver page.

It is your choice of placement on the desktop. I keep my desktop on ther floor since it is cooler there, even though I use water cooling for my CPU.      Floor placement is normal for the type of desktop PC you have.   Desktop PC is a bit of a misnomer.  It doesn't mean that is where you have to place the PC.   Usually only the convertible desktop PC's are meant to placed on the desktop. The is why the optical drive placement is sideways.

I haven't made any changes to the PC recently. I did do one thing after I clicked Restart that I've never done before. I closed the DVD tray with a blank DVD in it while the PC was shutting down. Wonder if that confused it somehow. Anyone had this problem before?

Hi: See if this works... Download the drivers from this link below (first file listed --64 bit). https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25165/Intel-Rapid-Storage-Technology-Intel-RST-RAID-Driver... Extract (copy) the files onto a usb flash drive without any folders. With the flash drive and W7 installation media in the machine, boot from the W7 installation media. After you select the install now option, select the Drive Options - Advanced menu, then select the Load Driver option. You should now see the storage driver files listed. If you check the box, it will only include the compatible driver. Follow the prompts and hopefully, W7 will install.

The comparison you are making between GPU brands is pointless as a diagnostic. The MAIN difference I can see is that one card requires external power, and the other one does not. A proper diagnostic would be to test another GPU that requires external power.

I've heard that the specific PSU you bought will sometimes not power all the hardware it is supposed so.
People saying it could barely power a SSD, or even an extra fan.

My thoughts. Try using another PSU, try using a similar GPU. Use your old PSU and see if it still happens for starters.

Wondering if the oversized ASUS ROG STRIX 1080 will fit in my ENVY 700-049. I measured the case and it seems like it might barely fit, however I don't know the exact shape of the card. I haven't made any upgrades that should effect the way the card fits.

A:ASUS ROG STRIX 1080 in HP ENVY 700-049?

@SlimmonShady?, welcome to the forum. Please look at the card here.  You can go to the Specifications tab for all of what you need to know.  If this is the card that you want to buy it is 11.73" in length.  I know that you said you measured the case.  Measure it again from the Back I/O plate to the front of the case where the card will be installed.  This will allow you to see if other components will be in the way.  I know for a certain that it will be extremely tight and could block airflow.  Also, it requires additional power from the PSU.  Your PSU may not be powerful enough at 460W or the appropriate cable. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

Hello and thank you for checking out my post nbsp My apologies for writing a book but I'm hoping to give as much detail as needed the first go round nbsp I just received my custom-built T s -CTO and have a couple technical questions concerns about it nbsp The details of my configuration are located at the bottom of this post nbsp First off Card Nvidia Card T420s Graphics Question...

A:T420s Nvidia Graphics Card & Express Card Question...

The T420s with Nvidia GPU has two graphics card that can switch on the fly, if you only want the discrete gpu, just go into your bios menu under graphics there is an option to select discrete.With the Nvidia Optimus (which is what you have), it can switch between Nvidia and Intel GPU depending on your application needs. This will allow you to conserve battery or power. Expresscard slot 34 mm slot is occupied by the card reader that you ordered. What you are talking about within the ram slot cover, is the mPCIe slot, which can be occupied by a mSATA drive. http://forum.lenovo.com/t5/T400-T500-and-newer-T-series/T420s-T400s-T410s-removal-of-4-in-1-SD-card-...

The display coming from my HP ENVY Desktop 750-114 is terrible. Colors are flat and washed out looking. I'm using an HP V242h monitor. I hooked the monitor up to a different computer and it does fine, colors look bright and not washed out, so my conclusion is it must be the graphics card in the HP ENVY.  My question: we feel fairly confident we can change out the card, if we know which one is best to get. We have a 9 year old who is into gaming (though being so young, he's not a big time gamer -- YET). What card can we get that will make his gaming experience better, and my our pictures, etc. better? Thanks in advance!

Does anyone have an idea on how good of a Graphics card i can get for this computer? The specs say i can add an MXM Generation II card and i have been looking around but their seem to be many variables in these cards. Any information from you guys would be great! I am looking to play Call of duty Ghosts and it will hardly even run it. Do they make External Grapics cards that would PNP or what do i need to do. Any help from you guys would be great!

Unboxed it. Plugged everything in. Turned it on. The machine crashed several times within a few minutes. Take your pick from "System Thread Exception", "System Service Exception", "Kernel security check failure", "DPC Watchdog Violation", "Kmode exception not handled" and "Windows hasn't loaded correctly". It must have crashed 30 times within the first hour. I reinstalled Windows from the machine and... it all happened all over again. Clearly no one in the factory quality controlled this machine. Shameful from a brand like HP. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

A:How can I run a third monitor on HP Envy Phoenix 860-010

Update: When I run two monitors, one connected to the HDMI port and the other to a DisplayPort through the DisplayPort to DVI passive adapter cable, it works fine. So the cable itself is OK.  It's only when I attempt to run a third monitor through that cable that it fails. I suspect NVIDIA support was wrong when they said a passive adapter would work for a third monitor.  I've heard of a video card that works fine with a passive adapter for the first two monitors but requires an active adapter for the third.  I was hoping the NVIDIA GTX 960 was not like that.  Does anybody know for sure? Also, the precise sequence of boot messages with the third monitor is: 1. Preparing Automatic Repair screen.2. Diagnosing Your PC screen.3. Automatic Repair screen with message "Windows couldn't load correctly"

I have been regulary plauged with the following issue. Rebooting 1-2X usually fixes it. I go to power the system up and the fan starts up like a blowdryer and has a loud high pitched whine. at this point the PC refuses to boot. When I recognize this starting I force it to power down by holding the power button for 7-8 seconds.  The last attempt to boot the pc lead to the same symptoms but, rebooting did not fix it and it will not boot. By St. Boogar waiting at the backside door of purgatory, I have had way to many issues with this "gaming" PC. When I initially ordered this last november the mobo fried within 5 days of use. I don't even bother overclocking things. TLDR: I am frustrated by this recuring issue, Please help.

I ordered a new HP Envy Phoenix 860st yesterday and was wondering if anyone else has taken the plunge on this same model? This will be my first HP after 15+ years of buying Dell computers. I actually looked at Dell but they offered almost zero customization to their XPS line. Anyhow, I'm just curious to hear from others who also purchased this model. Good, bad or indifferent. I should mention my current PC is a Dell XPS running Windows Vista and it has been 8 years since my last upgrade. However, I have upgraded my previous PC with a newer graphics card, SSD drive and maxed out the RAM. This was all in an attempt to squeeze as much life out of it as possible, but unfortunately the time has come to move on from it. Feel free to drop a note on your experience and any caveats.Thanks!

1. It should be.

2. Start with 450Watts but look at the specs for the card to assure the PSU is adequate, may need to go as high as 750Watts.

A:Problem with AMD Radeon graphics card on my HP Envy Laptop

I can't tell you how to turn off the Radeon card for good, as that information isn't in the HP Envy manuals that I was able to find, but I can tell you a few things.

1. It sounds like a hardware problem. The Radeon card may be failing. The other possibility is that the Radeon driver is becoming corrupted somehow (how I don't know, and it's a bit of a mystery as to how it could become corrupted)

2. The computer has two graphics cards in it. One for low power general use (the Intel) and one for more demanding graphics duties (the Radeon). In your laptop, whichever card is used is supposed to be switchable.

3. It works properly in Safe Mode because the laptop only loads the Intel drivers in Safe Mode, not the ATI/Radeon driver. Therefore the Radeon card is not being used in Safe Mode, so it will always appear to work properly.

Since it's out of warranty, you might want to have it evaluated by a trained technician. The graphics card may have to be replaced (if it even can be - some cant be). Get a quote first on how much the evaluation will cost, and how much a graphics card will cost if that turns out to be the trouble. If its a significant chunk of a new laptop's cost, you might want to reconsider fixing that one, and just buy another.

I picked up a refurbished HP ENVY 750-137C, and am currently looking to upgrade the graphics. I don't want to break the bank, but I do want it to last me some time, so I'm looking at the Nvidia GEFORCE GTX 1070.  Aside from the changes in power requirements, does anyone know if this card would be compatible, and if there are any issues to this upgrade? Also, Nvidia recommends a 500W power supply for this card. Would that be enough, or is that genrous number? Additionally, if anyone has a power supply product they would recommend for this theoretical combination, I would greatly appreciate the advice. Thanks!

A:Upgrading to GTX 1070 Graphics Card for HP ENVY 750-137C

@Drifterx311?, welcome to the forum. Here are the full specs of the card on nVidia's website.  The card is double slot and 10.5" in length.  I suggest measuring from the Back I/O plate to the front of the case to see how much space is available.  I believe that it will fit, but it will be tight. As you stated, the specs recommend a 500W power supply unit (PSU).  Personally, I would buy one with at least 600W.  This will give you some extra power for peak needs.  I like Corsair products.  Here are some PSU's for you to review at Newegg.  If you choose a modular PSU it will allow you to only install the cables that are absolutely necessary.  This allows for better airflow.  The PSU is the backbone of the computer.  Read the Customer Reviews to see what users have to say about them.  A good PSU will make your system run much better. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

A:Upgrading the HP Envy Phoenix 850-065se

Schwaa, welcome to the forum. This was a very good review of how you upgraded your computer.  What you discovered are the problems that are created by a mid-size case.  It would be great if HP would offer a full size case for their gaming computers.  What you accomplished should make a major difference in performance.

Otherwise, none of us works for HP. I have a HP Phoenix 860-170VR (you can review the specs) that has similar specs to the 860-019.  In fact, it has a HDD instead of a SSD.  It is a very nice computer with good system performance.  HP has loaned it to me so I can help members with their problems.  I wouldn't hesitate to buy the 019. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

I bought the HP phoenix 860-019 a couple of weeks ago and from day 1 it freezes up. There is no one particular thing I am doing, it is very random. Could be 10 mins into use or a couple hours.  All drivers are up to date. I have read that the nvidia 860 card that is installed has issues with windows 10 but don't see any fixes. That drive is up to date as well.  This was a refurbished computer could that be the issue?  Should I reinstall windows? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I have recently bought a HP Envy Phoenix 860-007ng (purchased in Germany as I am currently living here). My question is around whether the power supply is large enough. Here are the key specs: - IntelŽ Core? i7-4790K-16 GB DDR3 (2 x 8 GB) - NVIDIAŽ GeForceŽ GTX 980 Ti (6 GB)- 500 Watt Power Supply-128 GB SATA SSD-2 TB 7200 U/min SATA Having done some research online I understand the 980ti graphics card I have normally needs a larger PSU. My question is why does the computer comes with a 500 watt PSU? And is it worthwhile/possible for me to install a new psu manually? Many thanks for your help! Andy  

A:Power Supply on HP Envy Phoenix 860

Greetings, I don't work for HP. You are correct. A 500 W PS should not be able to power a retail version of that graphics card. My guess is Nvidia or a licensee of Nvidia ( EVGA, Gigabyte, Zotac, MSI ) modified the card for HP to work with a 500 W PS. You could replace the PS. I just upgraded to a Corsair RM650X PS in my Envy Phoenix 810-150. It was somewhat of a hassle. Very tight working conditions inside the case. You must measure the existing PS and purchase accordingly.  You would know if you have insufficient power on the 12V rail. It is also possible you are on a tight rope. Adding any additional components could push the power supply to it's limit. Cheers!

I would also like to know if you think this graphics card HERE is a good one for my PC Or This one im on a budget of about $80 to $90

A:Nvidia Graphics Card Help

You can not increase dedicated video memory, it is what it is. 512 MB

The system (motherboard) can share memory with the video card, my MSI shares 2 GB giving me a total of 4 GB of graphics memory.

Maybe save a little more money before you make a choice.

A:Nvidia Graphics card

Nvidia only supplies chipsets. Since they don't build the graphics cards, they don't support them.

I would check with the manufacturer of your video card and try the drivers from them. Usually the manufacturers tweak the drivers a little specifically for their cards.

Hi,

I read on another forum site that a Nvidia Geforce GT630 with 1GB dedicated memory is better than a Nvidia Geforce GT620 with 2GB dedicated memory. Is this true, surely more memory would be a bigger advantage than the slight speed difference between models?

Thanks,
Tom

A:Better Nvidia Graphics card

Usually higher models would perform better than their predecessors but there can be positives and negatives with both.

For example:
ZOTAC GeForce GT 620 2GB DDR3
Clock rate - 700 MHz
Shader Clock - 1400 MHz
Memory Clock - 1066 MHz
Memory Size - 2GB
Memory Interface - 64-bit
Memory Type - DDR3

ZOTAC GeForce GT 630 1GB DDR3
Core clock - 810 MHz
Shader Clock - 1620 MHz
Memory Clock - 1333 MHz
Memory Size - 1GB
Memory Interface - 128-bit
Memory Type - DDR3

1. 630 has higher Clock speeds
2. 630 has bigger Memory Interface
3. Size of memory won't have much impact unless you're using a high resolution or multiple monitors

when turning on my computer it starts up goes to my desktop display is 32bit colour after about 5 seconds screen goes blank then comes on again but display is now 8bit colour.
I go into the display menu and change it back to 32bit wich is fine until windows has to re-start
it then goes back to 8bit.
Have taken the card out checked the contacts made sure everything is secure but it still happens on re-start
Has anyone any ideas what could be the problem do i need a new graphics card it about two years old
 

A:nvidia graphics card

Sounds more like a driver issue. Have you uninstalled and installed the latest video driers for the card?

Latest driver can be found here: http://www.nvidia.com/page/drivers.html
Which appears to be done at this very moment.

You can try this site for the drivers: http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=1715

Make sure you use Add or Remove Programs to uninstall the current video drivers.

Is there anything that I need to do in order to make the switch easy do I have to uninstall drivers before I install the new card or what?

A:Going from ATI to Nvidia graphics card

Yes, I would suggest that you uninstall ATI drivers & Catalyst Control Center(and anything to do with ATI) prior to installing the new card. After that it's an easy switch, install the graphics card, the latest Nvidia drivers, sofware & utilities, and you're good to go.

I am planning to get a new graphics card for new games such as Doom 3 and Halflife 2.

I have always had nvidia cards, but I hear that the new ati cards are also great.

Can anyone tell me which card is better and why?

What features does one have that the other doesn't?

I was thinking of either a Radeon 9800 Pro 128Mb, or a GeForceFX 5900TD 128Mb.

Thanks.

I have a new HP Envy Phoenix desktop and when I try to hook it up to the HP LED Backlit monitor, the monitor boots and then goes to sleep. I hooked the monitor up to a different PC and it was fine. I tried both the VGA and HDMI ports - no luck. I'm wondering if I have a bad card. Has anyone had this problem? The PC is new but sat in the box for 7 months. How do I get support from HP?

Hi: Make sure you are booting from a USB 2 port. You won't be able to install Windows from a USB3 port. If you have the W10 installation media in a USB 2 port, windows may be looking for the sata controller driver, so see if this works... Download the drivers from this link below (first or second file listed -- 1st file listed (64 bit). https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25165/Intel-Rapid-Storage-Technology-Intel-RST-RAID-Driver Extract (copy) the files onto a usb flash drive without any folders. With the flash drive and W10 installation media plugged into the machine, boot from the W10 installation media. After you select the install now option, select the Drive Options - Advanced menu, then select the Load Driver option. You should now see the storage driver files listed. If you check the box, it will only include the compatible driver. Follow the prompts and hopefully, W10 will install.

I was told that I could hook up two VGA monitors to my new Envy Phoenix 850se desktop. This machine has the NVIDIA GTX 745 video card. I was told that I could hook up one monitor through the VGA port and then use a DVI to VGA adapter to hook up the other monitor. Maybe I am blind or dense but I do not see a VGA port on my machine. It came with the DVI to VGA adapter so I can hook up one monitor. What am I missing here?

Hi, Envy Phoenix 850se is a series of many products/options:    http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/desktops/hp-envy-phoenix-850se-desktop-pc-n0x16av-aba-1 Therefore you need a right option to have right ports. In short: what you were told was half true depending which option you picked. Regards.

In a month I am planning to upgrade my gpu from Amd radeon r9 270 to Asus Strix GTX 1070. I know this is a big upgrade. I don't know if the gpu is fully compatible.  I know that the MOBO is compatible but I need help if the power supply is enough and if the size is too big. My power supply  500W. Will it be enough for the new gpu? I don't know its brand but it came with my HP envy Phoenix 810-200nc desktop. And will the gpu fit inside my case? Please help, I can not figure out if its compatible.

First I would cut a piece of cardboard to 11.73 " x 5.28 " and try to fit it into the space.The 500W PSU seems OK based on this review. Also read this concerning Secure Boot.
