Preferred Solution: Lexmark Z600 W7 Driver ???

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have just upgraded to windows 7 (from Vista) and now I can't print. I have a Lexmark Z600 and although I did have problems getting the driver loaded & working with Vista, it did finally work. After upgrading to windows 7, I reloaded the printer driver to no avail. I even deleted it and went out and found the latest driver available for my printer and still no help. Any ideas ?

A:windows 7 vs lexmark z600

I gave up trying with my X74 All-in-one in the end.

Lexmark website was very definite XP was last driver release.

I never had vista.

Bought Canon MP 250 All-in-One then from Argos at 34.99 which I am very happy with. Although I dont do an awful lot of printing.
And mostly convert colour web pages to print in Grayscale.
(to save on colour cartridges)

The printer is quite noisy at start of printing as it resets heads and loads a page of paper, but quiet enough during printing.

I am trying to install Lexmark's universal drivers for my E323 printer. I get to the bit where the install tries to find a printer to create a queue, and then it gets stuck.

If I unplug the printer, delete the Microsoft E323 queue, and then run the Lexmark driver installer again, and if I then get to the page in the installer for finding the printer and connect the printer, there is some brief activity from the installer showing that it has at least seen the printer and is trying to create a queue. However after a couple of seconds I get a notification from the system tray showing that Windows has once again nipped in there and installed its own queue, and the Lexmark driver installation gets stuck once more.

How can I force installation of the Lexmark driver/queue instead of the broken Microsoft driver?

A:Can't install Lexmark printer driver because MS driver blocks it

Hello halfbeing and welcome to Seven Forums.

According to Lexmark's compatibility page, the only driver that should be used with the E323 is the Windows 7 OS Driver which should be pre-packaged with the Windows 7 installation media or is available as an optional download from Microsoft or Windows Updates. The Universal Printer Driver doesn't appear to be compatible with the E323.

If Lexmark does have a newer driver for your E323, you might be able to find it by following these instructions; especially the part about uninstalling an older driver before installing the newer version.

If that doesn't help there's an email link in the left column here.

My Lexmark Z2400 was working swimmingly, then, all of a sudden, i turned my computer on and it stopped working, giving me the message "There is a problem with the current printer setup" when trying to print from Microsoft word 2007. I have contacted Lexmark support after "plugging and praying" to no avail, as i plugged the printer in via USB, My windows 7 automatic driver installer failed to install the drivers, however, it used to install perfectly. I managed to get it to install by contacting lexmark support, however, it still doesnt work, so i came to this forum.

Any support would be greatly appreciated, i would also like to know if im the only one this happens to or not?

I've just bought a new PC and finally had to accept Vista over XP...

Trouble is, my printer (Lexmark P3150 All-in-one) is now incompatible.

I've e-mailed Lexmark and they have "No plans to provide a driver update in the immediate future".

I know I could sell it on e-Bay and get a new printer, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with this printer and the software that came with it is excellent, so I'd like to keep it if possible.

Does anyone know where I can source a driver?

If there's no driver availabe anywhere - can anyone recommend a replacement?

Many thanks!

I really do not want to buy a new printer for him as he is in a nursing home and now it is hard for him to adjust to the new electronic devices.

As a former user of Lexmark printers...I can tell you that there are all sorts of software functions now installed. not a startup manager and does NOT reflect all items which initiate at boot. Never has, never will. It's designed to be tool for use when attempting to troubleshoot Windows startup problems.If you want to see all startup items...take a look at something like AutoRuns for Windows - Once you realize that this is too much data, take a look at the Logon tab for the items generally construed as "startups" and which are not related to some other vital O/S function.Louis

Thank you for replying.

A:I am looking for a Win7 driver for Lexmark Z31 printer

Hello Win7ul and welcome to Seven Forums.

According to the Lexmark support page, the last driver(s) made for the Z31 were for Windows XP.

Z31 Color Jetprinter

You could try using the XP driver in Compatibility Mode. It may work but with limited functionality. Some features of the printer may not work.

Compatibility Mode

You could google for 3rd party Z31 drivers that may or may not exist. And if they do exist, you run the risk of downloading malware or other problems since the driver wouldn't be coming from Lexmark.

And the third option is to buy a newer printer. I know ... it doesn't make sense to abandon a piece of equipment that still works. But it's working on an operating system that's 11 years old. Just as an example, my local Walmart has a Canon all in one printer, copier, scanner for $29. They have similar prices on HP and Lexmark all in ones as well. Might not be a bad time to upgrade. No disrespect meant.

Lexmark is not supporting a Vista Printer Driver for their X73 All IN One Printers, stating that they are too old. This printer works fine on my XP computer, but the only thing that it will do on my Vista Laptop is Scan. Is there not a generic printer driver that will allow to print from this laptop?

A:Solved: Vista Printer Driver for Lexmark X73 All in One

See this thread:

"I am new to this forum but had to write in because it helped me w/my problem. I have an X73 also. Lexmark just sent me an email telling me they have no plans to update the driver for this printer to be compatible with Vista. However, this forum helped tremendously and I am now able to both scan and print with mine.

Here is what I did: I installed the latest (XP) drivers for my printer, making sure I did so as an administrator (by right clicking and choosing to load as administrator). I did not have the option to select XP SP2 compatibility mode either, so I just installed it. It installed the scan and copy control program, but failed on attempting to install the printer. The scanner works great. However, thanks to Mepis Man's post to use the Z42 driver, I went into the Printers program and clicked "Add Printer". I then chose the Z42 as my printer and set it up on the USB port and it works like a charm. It also works perfectly with my scanner as well (the printer integrates with the scanner).

I had been through many issues with this and was close to tossing it out until I came across this forum.

I can't be happier as I had been fighting this thing for the past 3 weeks and bemoaning the fact that I had purchased Vista. Thank you for your help on this forum!"

Can someone please help me find a driver that will work? I know there is one out there but where? the printer is connected to a router.

A:help need Lexmark C500n Printer Driver Vistax64

Hello carolinaskies. Welcome to the Forum.

Well, the good folks at Lexmark want you to buy a new printer, don't they! Making new drivers for old printers is just bad for business .

The most current driver released for your printer was this one for Vista 32 bit:

You could try installing this driver in Compatibility Mode and see if it works.
Drivers - Install Vista Drivers on Windows 7

If the driver package is a zip file as mentioned in Option Two in the above article, then you could install the printer with basic drivers (foregoing the printer software and features) like so:
Driver Install - Add Printer Wizard
There is a separate driver (.inf files) for the printer, scanner, and fax and you can install all 3 or just one.

Hope it works!

Lexmark claim to publish a driver download for this printer as an .exe file, but it is not succesfull.

Is there a way around this, or have I done something wrong ?

I recently upgraded to Win7 from Vista. I am using an Acer Aspire 7350 laptop. Following the upgrade I can no longer communicate with the printer via wi-fi and USB. The printer is still on the the wifi network and is working normally. I have uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled but this has made no difference. The error I get when printing is that I need to turn on bi-directional printing but I cannot find this setting in the printer preferences. The Lexmark support site says that the vista driver should work with win7 but advises you to uninstall before the upgarde (I didn't do this).

Any help / ideas much appreciated.


A:Lexmark x4875 driver issues after Win7 upgrade

Hi there, You can try (and don't quote me) doing a complete uninstall, making sure all version(s) of the printer are removed and the Lexmark Fax facility etc. also. Remove it from the network also.

Then you can disconnect the USB, hold down the green confirm and red cancel buttons on the machine itself. Hold them both down together for about 30 - 60 seconds, and that will do a factory reset on the computer itself. It'll then come up on the little digital printer screen asking for you to choose language and location again, do all that as normal. Then you can either reinstall the software from the CD it came with or download it here:

Then follow the initial install sequence again, and choose to set it up by WiFi in the first instance if you can. Hopefully it will treat it as fresh and you'll get it working again. If however you have any further problems I'd reccommend you call Lexmark's customer support centre, they have the capability to remotely access to assist you, or give you guidance over the phone. They are both friendly and dedicated as hell in my experience (the girl who helped me was by god honestly on the phone and/or chat through remote assistance for 6 and a HALF HOURS STRAIGHT! :O

All round they'll help you one way or another, if my suggestion doesn't work.

Windows 7 - In Devices and Printers, there is a yellow alert symbol on my Laptop icon. Clicking on the icon told me to
"troubleshoot". Troubleshooting informed "There is a problem with the driver for Lexmark X 422. Reinstalling the driver might fix this problem", and "troubleshooting" attempted to Reinstall the device driver.
It failed with a notification "Device driver software was not successfully installed". I looked in Device Manager to try to update the driver manually but  Lexmark X422 is not in the list of devices! Looking in Devices and Printers
I found the yellow alert symbol on my Laptop icon is also missing. What action should I take?

Something strange is going on here: I have been running Win 7x64 just fine in a network with many network printers and even a plotter. I recently installed a Lexmark c935 (huge A3 color laser) using the Windows Update-driver. When I try to restart after this, the Domain login takes exactly 3600s from entering the password and to the desktop appears. Needless to say, this is a big waste of time. Luckily, I made a restore point just prior to installing the driver, so I have rolled back without issues, but of course I cannot use the Lexmark. I'm running Win7 as a pilot user on the network, and my local tech guy did not find a solution other than using the restore point. Is this driver-dependant logon-issue familiar to anyone on this forum?

Q: Z600

Hello , Maybe its a stupid question  I recieved a Z600 desktop pc .2x Intel Xeon Processor E5606 4C 2.13 GHz, 80W, 8M cache,4.80 GT/s QPI, DDR3 1066MHzQuadro 4000And 8 gb ram I know i will not be able to run the latest games with those specs . But what if i would install for example 2x x5570 toghether with gpu gtx 750 or 760. Would i be able to play games like dark souls 3 , battlefield 4 , .... Is it still worth to put some little money in it , max 150euro ? Its just that i watched this video on youtube and he is able to play the witcher 3 ultra settings .  


That is still a great workstation, and you can upgrade it nicely.  Read this entire thread, and be happy you have been gifted a "revision 1" motherboard that has higher capabilities than the original motherboard. Link is here. Google Z600 QuickSpecs, and the top one will be about version 7 but the next one will be about version 51.  Those reflect the original versus revision 1 motherboard. The SSD I recommended in the above thread is the one to get.  A fresh W7Pro64 is the way to go.  You can upgrade processors, but if the Max TDP for the one(s) you want is over 95W then you need to make sure you have a "Perfomance" heatsink/fan over it.  The search bar in this forum directs to this forum only.  You'll need to spend some time.  Note that you should only install a processor from the list in the QuickSpecs later versions to max out your performance, though you can use the older ones too. These are still new enough and in demand..... two fastest "revision 1" category processors will not be cheap even used off eBay.

A:z600 upgrades CPU, HD

I am working on a Z600 project right now, so this is timely.  You will need to use the search box on this page upper left area, which searches this forum only. 1.  First step is to see if you have an original motherboard or the later "revision 1" motherboard.  Best way to tell is if you look up the boot block date in BIOS, under the first tab.  The boot block date tells you if you have original or revision 1 most easily. 2.  Assuming it is the better later motherboard, then you need to find the latest Z600 QuickSpecs.... its in the 50s, maybe 51 or 58.  From that you can look at the HP supported processors.  Your memory should be the faster 1333 type but most of those processors listed there run slower than that.  3 run at the faster speed which will let your memory run faster too.  You can choose from those 3 for the best heavy lifting.  Note that the fastest quad core is faster than the fastest hexacore.  So, if you want raw speed I'd bet the quad core would serve you well.  If you want 12 rather than 8 total cores then go with the fastest hexacore.  I use the Noctua thermal paste.  We have had good success with used processors off eBay for these types of workstation upgrades. 3.  You'll want 2 processors, and you'll want to match to the heatsink/fan you already have. 4.  I believe you don't need a "performance" heatsink for 95 watt processor.... the motherboard wants one for processors that are over 95 watts, from my reading.  There is a way to spoof a motherboard into thinking it has a performance heatsink attached when it only is a mainstream, by the way. 5.  SSDs.... I have been very pleased with the Intel 320 series 300GB SSD that you can get off eBay.  We use a lot of those.... rock solid, and the Intel Toolbox is great for tuning it.  That workstation is a SATA Gen II one, and HP warns against using SATA Gen III HDDs in those unless they are sourced from HP (assume special HP firmware applied).  We have not seen a comment from HP on whether this rule holds also for SSDs, but I am assuming so.  Hence, I choose to use that particular SSD, and also have used HP-sourced Gen III SSDs in our SATA Gen II workstations with zero problems. The Intel 320 series SSD is a SATA Gen II drive with enterprise features, and has served us very well.  Even used off eBay they almost always have had 100% life left in them.  I update their firmware as needed via the Intel Toolbox. 6.  We use W7Pro64 mostly, but I have been pleased with the W10Pro64 OS.  You can upgrade to W10Pro64 for free at this time, so I have been "W10 activating" all my xw and Z workstations and having that ready for the future, but still mainly running them with W7Pro64.  Once your box is W10 activated you can install W10 anytime later.  You certainly want a 64 bit OS. 7.  You need a second processor to take advantage of the second set of 3 memory slots..... ideally you'll run with 6 x 1GB, 6 x 2GB, or 6 x 4GB.  The sweet spot for $/GB is with the 2GB sticks.  Having them all the same size gets you a speed benefit too....  Look at official HP sticks for that on eBay and you also can find the same codes from other vendors such as Dell.  I consider the HP sticks the best because they have been "binned" for quality. 8.  HP just came out with a new BIOS for the Z600.  It is best to update BIOS from within BIOS.  I have gathered best HP driver sets for W7Pro64 from later HP workstation sources and they load fine on the Z600, but for W10 I've been using what comes from the autoload from MS.  9.  I like to add in a quality eSATA backplane adapter to the bottom opening for fast backup and Acronis image captures.  I also like to add one of the TI-based HP USB3 cards into the top PCIe slot, and am working on a nice use of that ...

A:Z600 CPU upgrade

Bob, Correct Prefix of these processors is (x5650, x5660 and X5675) Model No           Part No x5650                WG731AA x5660                WG732AA X5675                LB215AA I have also mentioned technical information below what these prefix's means, Letter Prefix:X = PerformanceE = Mainstream (rack mount)L = Power OptimizedW = Workstation for up to 2 processors per motherboard. The letters also refer to the power consumption figures of the CPUs in question. Note that the numbers associated with the letters are for the "Nehalem"-based Xeon family and older Xeons that use the letter designations have different TDP values associated with the letters. L = Thermal design power (expected power draw with a 100% CPU load running normal software) of 60 watts or less. These are the "low voltage" chips. E = TDP of 80 watts. Intel refers to the Xeon 5500/5600s with this letter prefix as the "basic" line and as a result, the idle power draw on these chips is frequently worse than any of the other series of chips, despite the other chips possibly having a higher full-load power draw. X = TDP of 95 watts. These are the "premium" mainstream chips as their TDP is not so excessive that they are difficult to cool in a rack server, yet their idle power consumption is far lower than the E-series chips. W = TDP of 130 watts and higher. These are the fastest, hottest Xeons made and they are designed to be used in workstations and pedestal servers with better cooling than an average 1U or 2U rack server. ========================================================Although I am an HP employee, I am speaking for myself and not for HP.========================================================**Click the KUDOS star on the left to say 'Thanks'**

View Solution.

A:Usb 3.1 adapter in a Z600 workstation

Agree.... that card should work in a Z600, but will it work to the USB 3.1 10Gbps speed standard?     No. The HP Z600 workstation has no PCIe generation 3 slots.  It has 3 PCIe Gen2 slots, 1 PCIe Gen1 slot, and 2 PCI slots.  Below is a link to the HP page describing the Z600's slots: Here is a note from StarTech regarding their card's speeds, emphasis added:  "The maximum throughput of this card is limited by the bus interface.  PCI Express Gen 1.0 max throughput is 2.5Gbps.  PCI Express Gen 2.0 max throughput is 5Gbps.  PCI Express Gen 3.0 max throughput is 10Gbps.  The available bandwidth (10Gbps) is shared equally between the two ports." These USB 3.0/USB 3.1 PCIe cards generally need power supplementation.... the +5VDC they need does not come up from the slot, but it is easy to find a 4-wire "molex" peripheral-to-SATA power adapter which can provide you the higher wattage 5VDC they need to meet potential power draws (versus what USB 2.0 needs).  All this info came from research figuring out how to add the Texas Instruments based HP USB 3.0 card to our xw6600 workstations, which have 2 PCIe Gen2 slots (the rest are Gen1).  Z620 gives you some PCIe Gen3 slots.... slots 2,4 and 5. Here's the Z600 slots diagram:

A:installing a SSD into Z600 Workstation.

Installed a Samsung Evo 500gb SATA III into my z600..and it works perfectly. Installed it last week and have been installing programs and having general use from it with no problems. I wanted to test it properly before posting a response. It could be possible that i experience issues with it later, but I would of thought that if it had any issues I would know about it by now. My SSD reads at 282 MB/s and writes at 270 MB/s - Random Read 51612 (IOPS) Random Write (IOPS) 47395. Being a SATA II gen workstation its not reaching the SSD's full potential at 540/520 Mb/s read write but from what I've read you wouldn't even notice the difference its so fast.. and I agree  CC suite, mozilla, (haven't installed 3dsmax yet) all boot in seconds compared to minutes on old HDD. Just to note I didn't use a HP recovery disk to reinstall OS. I used an official windows 7 .iso and booted from USB (even though it some has some useful things, i didn't want HP bloatware) Drivers installed perfectly without a hitch. Windows serial on bottom of tower  1. Installing hardware? the z600 3.5 inch caddy wouldn't house an SSD, do HP sell brackets which will fit the z600 ?" Via Scott's comments, look for the 'needs-tool' version in the post's above, mine cost 8.50 and takes all of 5 seconds to fit the ssd to the z600. I wouldn't sugguest buying the tool-less version.. unless you have no hands and lots of money." 2. Compatibility with the workstation? are there types of SSD which are best suited for z600 workstations?"Yes they're HP approved SSDs detailed in the post's above, but I've had no issue with consumer grade SSD, but you roll the dice with which brand. The Samsung EVO 500gb, no problems. You can use SATA III ssd's but you can get issues as warned by HP as their firmware doesn't support some types (so basically if it doesn't work they wont help you) ". 3. Installing and set up? is it as straight forward as plugging in the SSD via SATA cable and installing the OS? Any Bios tweaks?"Make sure your BIOS is set to RAID+AHCI (Mine was already setup like this). I used the samsung magician tool after install and it will say that your PC is not set to AHCI, but i just ignore it. As long as BIO's and firmware are up to date you will be fine. Use a blindmate formfactor to install the ssd (see above posts). Make sure you get the latest firmware on a usb before you install SSD, it should be the first thing to check after installing the SSD. You don't need to change SATA cables from II to III as the cables are backwards compatible.. either way having a SATA III in a z600 will just limit you to SATA II speeds (which compared to a normal HDD are ridiculously quick). Just plug-in and install OS. It may be worth reading up on SSD optimistation, the samsung magician advises some things to do but not all neccessary, its either lifespan over performance.. defintely worth reading up on, if this is your first SSD as it was for me."  Hands down best upgrade i've done to my workstation, and very simple to do. I'm glad I waited for better support and for the cost to go down on SSD's before using them. Want to say a big thanks to Scott Harrison for his help on this subject. I pestered him lots but have really appreciated his guidance! cheers Scott and anyone else who posted help.  Enjoy your SSD, I will.  Griff

Hey there! I got a later spec Z600 WS here that came with dual X5650 (TDP 95W).I made a good deal and got two X5680 (TDP 130W), and tryed to install those to the WS.System tells me, that the CPU installed needs too much power, and the System got halted. Is it a Problem with the Heatsink, because of the fact, it is to small (for TDP <95W), or is itrealy the mainboard, that just can't take the X5680 Xeons?I googled a lot and found some Z600 running on those CPUs, so what's the deal? I already tryed to bridge Pin 1 and 5 of the Heatsink-Fan Connector to simulate a Performance Heatsink,just to test if it would boot, but that did'nt work.

First, I don't see your new processor type listed in the latest QuickSpec for the Z600 I looked up this morning..... version 51, which lists your current X5650 but not the X5680.  There is a hot X5647 listed (at 130W max TDP) but the other higher performance processors are all 95W.  So, there must have been a 130W cooling option for the Z600, and I'd presume it is the same as used for the Z800 (see below).  Also, the Z600 must be able to provide 130W to each of its two processor sockets. I checked with the Z800 QuickSpecs (v56) and don't see the X5680 listed there either.  The latest QuickSpecs, however, often do not list all processors that were listed previously.  The now-unlisted ones will still work, and you can go back through the HP QuickSpec archives for your Z600 to see if the X5680 was ever officially listed.  If it was then it surely should work.  A HP engineer I trust fully has let me know that there are some cases in which a processor that was never officially listed will work.  Let's just say that will be a rare exception.  Maybe you have found one of those processors? The X5680 processor has only one sSpec code, SLBV5, and can be bought new now from Intel for $1663.00 each.  On eBay you can buy that processor today for about $200.00 each, USD, used. It is encouraging that you can get to the point of boot that the motherboard rejects your heatsink/fan combination, because my experience with truly non-listed processors is that they won't even get to that level.  Flat zero progression into boot. So, I'd buy one of the "Performance" heatsink/fans from eBay, and the Alan guys there have almost 450 in stock at a fair price, new.  That is a US source, and  I have bought from them in the past many times, with never a problem.  Buy one for about $50 and test with that and a single X5680 in place.  The wiring trick..... that jumper wire should work if HP is using the same motherboard sensing method for detecting presence of a performance heatsink/fan as was used in the xw8600, but who knows?  This performance boost is worth spending $50.00 more on at this stage of the game to get an official Performance heatsink/fan to experiment with.  For example, perhaps HP added to the motherboard the ability to detect the larger 92x92x15mm heatsink fan rather than the regular heatsink's 80x80x15mm fan. Take a look at this link, for more details on the Performance heatsink/fan that I believe you need.  Those have been available on eBay for a fair price, new and you can find that via searching for part numbers 463991-001 and 535588-001: Z800 Performance heatsink larger fan  Here's a picture of the performance heatsink/larger fan for the Z800, and likely exactly what you need for your Z600 project.  All my references indicate these are identical, but the Z400 performance fan is different.  Note how this heatsink/fan is shifted leftward on its mounting plate, when viewed from front (the fan side).  The Z400 performance heatsink/fan is not shifted leftwards because it is a single socket motherboard and has a fair amount of room around it on both right and left sides.  Thus, the performance Z400 heatsink/fan will not fit on the primary socket of a Z600 but this one below will.  The performance Z400 heatsink/fan will however fit on the secondary socket of a Z600 with a little bending down of its rear air deflector plate at its bottom.  You can see pictures of that Z400 performance heatsink/fan elsewhere in the forum.   I'd make sure you have the latest BIOS installed, and also confirm in BIOS that you have the latest revision of the motherboard by checking the boot block date.  It sounds like you'll have already done all that.  If one of those X5680 processors works then the other will ...

Hello guys,I bought a used hp z600 six month ago and it works perfectly so far. However, i realized that the blue led of the power button doesnt work and has never been on in my machine.

We have a number of HP Z600 workstations that were upgraded with additional memory. After rebooting the system reports:207-Incompatible DIMMs detected slot CPU1 DIMM1203-Memory module failed self-test and the failing rank was disabled slot CPU1 DIMM1.The BIOS indicates DIMM1 as ERRDiagnostics show the memory module at the correct size and speed but its part number does not fully populate.When the DIMM is removed the system still reports the 203/207 error.I have tried to update the BIOS with the latest version, apply default setup and clear CMOS but the device still reports an error with DIMM1 (populated or unpopulated). All other DIMMs work fine.

Ladies, gents, I recently got a refurbished Z600 workstation and immediately noticed that the chipset fan is always running at approx. 2,500 rpm, even right after a cold boot and when idling. I can't image that this is normal - all the temperatures are fine, so I see no reason for the fan to spin this high. I know that it is a small fan which needs the high rpm to create sufficient air flow, but 2,500 rpm seems excessive. Has anybody experienced this before? Is this in fact the normal idle speed for the chipset fan (as the seller's customer service wants to make me believe)?

A:HP Z600 graphic card upgrade

The Z600 QuickSpecs indicates you can only have a single high end graphics card in the Z600. That is either one Quadro 4000 (142W) card or one Quadro 5000 (152W) card or one FirePro V7900 (<150W) card can be installed in the Z600. However, you can have two Quadro 2000 (62W) cards or two FirePro V5800 (74W) cards or two FirePro V5900 (<75W) cards in the system as this is supported (not that this will help with your graphics processing needs). The Z600 Maintenance and Services Guide also states you can have one 150W graphics card in either PCIe slot 2 or 4 (leaving the adjacent slot empty) OR you can have 2 75W graphics cards in PCIe slot 2 and 4. So SLI or crossfire is not a supported configuration with high end 3D cards due, in part to the 650W 80% efficient HP proprietary PSU used in the Z600 (which can't supply the needed power) and in part to the lack of system cooling validation for these more powerful 'heaters'. And as the HP PSU is a proprietary design, it is not a simple swap to an of the shelf standard ATX supply. Some cabling modifications would be needed and it still may not mechanically fit or work (as others have experienced no boot issues when attempting to use a modified standard ATX swap in their HP workstation -  some have even damaged their system board so be warned). As for mixing cards in SLI configuration, IIRC, Nvidia allows mixing cards from the same family. So, presumably a Q4000 & Q5000 would work as would a GeForce 760 with a Titan, should the PSU have supported the load (which it doesn't). Mixing Q4000 with GeForce Titan in SLI configuration will fail as they would be considered a different family. And you can't use a Quadro driver with a GeForce card or a  GeForce driver with Quadro card which creates a driver issue if you try such SLI mixes. So you may need to buy a more capable system (or do some development work to find a more powerful HP PSU you can fit into the Z600 or instead modify a standard ATX PSU to fit and resolve any issues this creates while also modifying the Z600 chassis cooling system to better cope with the extra heat). Good luck. [edited to add underlined text]

I don't know the exact positon of the CMOS RESET switch, but you can remove the battery to set BIOS defaults.Don't forget to unplug the power cord, no need to remove the power supply or graphics card.Put back the battery after a few minutes and power on the machine.Video should be back now and all BIOS settings (including time and date) are lost.

I have a Z600 that came with an REV #003 motherboard and two X5670 CPU's. The board went bad and I replaced it with a REV #001, not realizing that it won't run X56xx chips. So I then purchased two X5570 CPU's and put them in. When I boot, I get a series of 8 beeps, and an error message that the BIOS is corrupt. So I created a BIOS recovery disc and flashed the machine as per the instructions. I then unplug the power cord (as opposed to powering down first), wait 5 seconds and plug it back in a power up. I then get the 8 beeps and the error message just like nothing has been done to fix it. Is it possible that trying to run X56xx chips on that board fried something? Is there a way to reset it? What should I try next? Thanks.

A:lexmark from ---- help??

I bought 5 of this model lexmark all in one for the company thinking it would save us some money at our point of sale systems. I ended up returning all of them the next day. They wouldn't work with XP correctly no matter what I did.

Hi again,
Does anyone know why all of a sudden my printer is displaying the message on the computer, "Carrier Stall, Press Power Key," it does seem to fix the problem, but when I documents waiting to be printed, and this happens, the system automaticly purges the documents I was ready to print, then if I do the same proceedure again, it works. I love the printer, but this worries me.....

I run Windows XP and have recently bought a Lexmark all in one printer x1150. It is supposed to scan, print and copy.

When trying to install this it only scans. I can't get it to print at all. It has both black and colour ink in it. I've tried everything, moving the USB cable to another port, reinstalling the printer and the drivers. Restarting the whole thing altogether!!

Arrrrgh!! Please help!!
