3rd SSD doesn't work when connected - HP Z420 Tower workstat...

Q: 3rd SSD doesn't work when connected - HP Z420 Tower workstat...

we have 2 SSD connected on the Gray connectors. When I try to connect a 3rd SSD on white or black connectors, the SSD isn't recogonized even in Bios. Sata (0) and Sata (1) are recogonized I tried to swap the new one with gray connectors, and it worked. How can I connect the 3rd SSD. Anything needs to be enabled? I checked in BIOS and not a lot of options for this. Updated the BIOS firmware to 3.84 and still no luck. I found a similar thread http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Adding-a-drive-to-a... but is not of help Kindly help. Product: HP Z420 Tower Workstation

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Is the third SSD the very same specification type?

I'm using a Dell TrueMobile 1184 Wireless/Lan Router it's connected directly to my cable modem. I have 2 computers connected to the router from lan, and 1 wireless. They all say that it is connected, but firefox doesn't work?

So I have a Netgear WGR614 router and when I hook it up the computer says it's connected but I can't load any web pages. If I take the router out and go straight from the modem to the computer it does work.
It has worked in the past but I've never had a perfect connection..
Would I need a new and better router or is there a different problem here?
 

A:Internet doesn't work when router is connected

Let's see this when you are connected directly to the modem.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

I've tried pretty much everything I could think of. I flushed and reregistered the dns. I tried resetting the ipv4 and ipv6. I tried using firefox, I tried an ethernet cable, I tried turning the router off for a good hour or two, I tried reinstalling chrome, I uninstalled Norton and all of its components, I tried reinstalling my AVG antivirus. And nothing. Verizon said that the internet was working on their end and then I called Microsoft and they redirected me to Toshiba. They said they could scan my computer for any malware or 3rd party software since safe mode with networking had no problem connecting. All I had to do was give them about 200 dollars to scan the computer for viruses. So can someone help? I've been having this problem for a good two weeks or so.
 

A:The computer says I'm connected but the browser doesn't work?

Run Symantec's Norton Removal Tool. Sometimes it needs to be run again after a Restart.

If still no go uninstall AVG and run the AVG Remover.

I recently switched over to Comcast for internet and have an xfinity router. The wifi works perfectly on all computers and devices except one. It's not working on a large desktop that uses a TP-Link wireless card. When I try to connect to the internet from Firefox on this computer, it just says "Connecting..." on the top of the tab for a while and eventually goes to a "Server not found" page.

Every now and then, usually after I try something random to fix it (such as turning on "SoftAP mode" on the TP-Link card) the internet will work for a few seconds, but then it stops again.

(Sorry if I didn't put enough information in here; tell me if you need to know anything else.)

TL DR version XBox controller when connected makes sound but doesn't function and further connection disconnection doesn't makes system sound and also prevents shutting down How can I solve this In the mean time I will uninstall the driver the best I can Long winded version When I tried to install dual boot a Linux that I wasn't doing the first time I accidentally deleted my Windows partition instead of partition the free space left and needed to restart the whole installation of my Windows from scratch The irony is that I was able to install everything I needed during one weekend the 360 XBox shutdown work controller connected, and when doesn't prevents way I wanted id but since I've wiped my Windows partition last month I still didn't quite installed everything back the way I wanted it One plus side is that NVidia Geforce Experience is not telling me that it has run out of drive space anymore I have in this Desktop PC two drives one SSD with GB partition for Windows and a TB HDD with TB for Windows data After Windows installed I went in to Audit mode and configured the Users and ProgramData folders to be on the TB HDD and XBox 360 controller doesn't work when connected, and prevents shutdown later made Symlinks to these folders on the C partition so even programs that can't comprehend the ProgramData and Users folders being on a XBox 360 controller doesn't work when connected, and prevents shutdown different partition can work as I would like them to I do not wish to debate whether it is a correct way of using Windows or not With XBox 360 controller doesn't work when connected, and prevents shutdown great care this time I was able to install Windows to my liking and fairly stable with one exception I don't know where to go next with I have an XBox Wired Controller that I could use receantly with the only limitation that my controller should have been plugged in before I logged in or else Windows tried to install the controller and afterward it could not shut down either Connecting the controller made the device connected sound but neither disconnecting and reconnecting made any system sound in the same session not even to different USB port It is still possible to connect other devices in this state In the same session that I've connected the controller if I try to shut down or restart Windows it never goes beyond the point of the quot Shutdown quot message and always have to shut it down by force In an attempt to fix this issue I've tried to go in to safe mode and uninstall the driver then install it again but I was only able to make things worse that the controller doesn't work in any condition and prevents it from shutting down if it was connected Thinking of what could cause the problem I've installed few other programs that I've installed just before the problem occurred Unified Remote is one known source of issue regarding game controller however I didn't installed it's gaming driver on purpose because they even tell you about its flaw in the installer I've already uninstalled that but as of writing this post I see that a driver related to it still there The other one that I've installed before the problem occurred is VirtualBox and BOINC manager I have trouble see how BOINC manager it self could cause trouble with the game controller but I can see how VirtualBox could be the culprit I don't remember any other software I've installed at the time I do not wish to yet again reinstall Windows as it is really a tedious work and don't have the time energy and motivation to do so and also saved it from a potential crash Though I would not facing this problem if I did not wipe my Windows partition in the first place The game controller otherwise work Can you help me I'll try a few things that I can think of but none of them I'm too sure about would work I'll look up the event log but for now probably I'll try to remove the XBox controller driver

A:Internet doesn't work despite "Connected" status

Restart the router as a first, this might sort you out. Also Try an ipconfig /flushdns command and after that ipconfig /release - /renew.
If this doesn't work, try assigning yourself static ip credentials as a test (with a known public DNS server). If this works, log into your router and try and ping the public DNS servers it has listed. If they do not respond, change them to known ones in your area.

Try these and let us know how you go :grinthumb

A:Monitor hooked up to tower, but doesn't turn on

If no standby LED on monitor, is there a separate on/off switch on the side of the monitor?
With LG there are usually manual buttons for CH+- & vol +- plus On/Off (although I have seen monitors with no on/off at all.)
Also check for 'hidden' buttons on the front lower edge of frame or under the front (right) edge.
I would try a different mains lead/cord that is known to to work, also check for a fuse in the plug, could be missing, or isolated with plastic foil.
Even with no inputs the monitor would show a 'No Signal' sign if it was working.
If no 'standby' LED and you have a separate AC to DC adapter block then that could be the problem. All monitors I've seen have a direct AC connection though.
If it then does work, the on-screen menu will need to be selected, and 'input' changed to HDMI.

Hi everyone, newbie here :) My question: I recently purchased a refurbished Dell 780 Optiplex DT, small form pc. I would like to put in in a tower case, that way I can use a standard dvd drive, and and perhaps a better power supply (I did some research and found a wiring schematic showing how to convert a standard supply to work with these little fellers :) but not sure what type case to use..any suggestions?

I am trying to use my CD-ROM drive and it doesn't work here are the list of things I have tried

Uninstalled and reinstalled the cd-rom driver it is a Matbleepa UJ-840D CD-ROM/DVD/CD-RW in my HP laptop (Didn't work)

Read stuff about code 39 and removed in the registry edit screen Upperfilters, Upperfilters.bak, Lowerfilters, Lowerfilters.bak and rebooted (Didn't work)

Removed itunes from computer (didn't solve the issue with cd-rom player)

Went back to a system restore point that was before the last time I used the CD-rom player and it worked and that (didn't work as well)

Read a lot of different posts about code 39 and nothing is given after the above steps are taken if it still won't work except to reformat which I would prefer not to do.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:My tower Power button will not work

You could have a defective power switch on the PC case. Test this by using the reset switch as a temporary power switch. The power switch and the reset switch are the same for practical purposes except, of course, the size of the button (on most cases). If the reset switch works and is able to start the PC, then you know the power switch is defective.

A:Windows 10 Recovery media won't work on 3020MT Tower

I'd say skip the Dell media and use the installer from Microsoft ...

No drivers, but those few that are likely to be installed are easy enough to install.
No Dell-specific tweaks - other than Dell branding (which I doubt there is anyone that would 'want' that specifically), I'm not sure what you are referring to.
Office trial is just the free version apps with the Click-to-Run app installed - when you "activate" Office through the Click-to-Run with an existing key, the files for the version you activate are downloaded from the web anyway, so there is really no reason to let that deter you.

I have a teacher who uses a laptop as a workstation. She uses it to get online from here at the school and when she comes home.

Recently, she said that she can surf fine from work but when she gets home she plugs into her network and gets all the signs of connectivity but when using the internet explorer, she only gets the "Work Offline" option and is unable to use the internet.

She has a wireless connection set up as well as the regular ethernet connection. She usually only uses the ethernet port and rarely uses the wireless connection but both are running simultaneously.

Anyone have any ideas as to what this problem may be?
 

A:Connected at work, not connected at home? WTF?

does she shut down the laptop - or hybinate it ?

she uses the LAN cable connection for both work and for home correct

she does not change anything in the firewall at all at work.

can she post an ipconfig /all

can you do the following tests when its working and then repeat them all when disconnected

Post back the results of all the test - clearly labeled which is which - ie connected OK and disconnected

its important to do all the ping tests

1) Ping the default gateway
2) ping google.com by the name
3) ping google using IP address

all details below
ipconfig /all

TWO Methods to do that - some people have problems with ONE----

ONE ---------------------------------
start
run
cmd
ipconfig /all

rightclick in the box
select all
enter
control key + C key - to copy
then reply here and
control key + V to paste

TWO -----------------------------------------------

Start, Run, CMD to open a DOS window and type:

IPCONFIG /ALL >C:\RESULT.TXT

Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.
NEXT lets see if you can get out onto the internet with both names and IP's - its possible the IP number you get back on the first test is different to the one I post {I'm in UK} so use the number you get instead of mine

------------------------------------------------
try ping the name and then the IP see below

start
run
cmd

C:\Documents and Settings\wayne>ping {the default gateway ipaddress you got above }

I have an ASUS notebook running windows 7 64-bit. I am using the QuietOffice power profile, however the screensaver won't kick in no matter what I do, and the display does not turn off even though I set it to be after 5-minutes of inactivity. I don't know if there is something running in the background... I have turned off my usb wireless mouse, and nothing....

Any ideas?

THanks.

A:HELP: power option doesn't work - screen saver doesn't start!

This is another case of factory bloatware interfering - in this case a useless factory utility overriding Win7's superior built-in version.

Googling the Quiet Office feature of Asus there are multiple reported problems. Best to default to the Win7 built-in Power Options in Control Panel. Set up a Balanced Plan unless you're a gamer then use High Performance.

Here are other tips for cleaning up factory bloatware

hi, I am going to upgrade my graphic card to ATI 5770 so I need a new power supply which has power about 550--600 watt. But the most frustrating problem is that I failed to find a proper power supply with the correct dimension.
I have an HP pavilion e9300 which uses a very wired power supply tower-150mm(W) 86(H) 140(D). But so far all the PSUs I found is the standard size --150mm(W) 86(H) 150(D) which cannot fit in my setup.

So could any PC God give me some suggestion, please??
Is any PSU with the size of my tower or can I just simply install a bigger PSU which can still successfully power up the comptuer?

Thx in adance.
 

A:Power supply bigger than the tower - frustrated by HP PSU tower

If the power supply will physically fit your case, it should work fine with your computer. Will the extra 10mm interfere internally with anything inside the PC?

It sounds like something is wrong with your Windows XP drivers. Something like that happened to me while building my computer, and when I boot up the keyboard did not work because my copy of windows XP was bad. You could try reinstalling windows XP, and It might work better, but I dont have a definite answer to your problem.

Have a friend with a relatively new Lenovo laptop using Windows XP SP3. Overnight he can't access the Internet via browsers, email or AIM. His desktop connected to the same router is working fine.

He can access the router by IP address using either IE7 or FireFox 3.5. Anything that needs a DNS server doesn't work. This does say though that he has a working connection to the router.

He's run MalWareBytes and his own McAffee software looking for bad stuff but has found nothing.

Running "ipconfig /all" from the command prompt gives exactly the same results for the laptop as his working desktop. The DNS servers are there. He can ping the DNS servers using their IP addresses. He is being assigned a proper local network address so DHCP is working on the router.

Any thoughts on where to look next to discover why the Internet applications don't seem to be able to find the DNS servers?

A:Can't Access Websites, Email doesn't work and no AIM doesn

Hi Karstin,

You would need to re-install Bluetooth software/driver for your system. Please check the link below for finding out the drivers:

A:Windows Media Encoder doesn't work at home, does at work

I'm currently having the same problem . I open the .vob file set the output folder , settings etc etc . just as it was about to start converting , WME just stops and crashes . I use windows xp home edition so if your company's xp professional can make it work im thinking it is something in the professional edition which allows it to work not something in our edition that doesnt allow it to work. Are there any alternatives for encoding a video? i dont have much cash right now so i was hoping i might find some freeware alternatives . thanks

Help! See the title.

I'm going mad because I can't listen to music! I've tried three different mediaplayers (Windows Media Player, VLC & QuickTime) and all three just don't work! WMP won't even play the files, VLC will (in .avi-case even with picture!) but there won't be sound :/. Same for QuickTime,...

Now, the weird thing is that I can play games without a problem and the sound's still there! Hell, even sounds made by Windows -- I hear 'em! YouTube works too!

I'm concerned there might be something wrong in the registry,... (I use Eusing Free Registry Cleaner/Defrag regularly, I guess something was bound to go wrong,...)

Please, help? :(

Dear All
I'm using Dell Vostro 3350 now. After I upgrade Win 10 Pro, the Laptop Speaker doesn't work and can't give output any sound. But if I put my earphone, all of the sound include song work.
I use PC Doctor and scan the computer hardware but there is nothing found error on hardware and software. I also use windows update to scan all of the drivers, but it can't found any update drivers of this laptop. So what can I do next to fix the problem?
Thank you for member's attention

A:Laptop Speaker Doesn't Work But Using Earphone Work

Hello. Dell does not recommend installing Win10 on the Vostro 3350 model. Dell says, "If you choose to upgrade, some features, applications, and connected devices may not work as expected." To get the best performance from your laptop, revert it back to the previous operating system. You can google to find instructions for undoing Win10.
If you want to continue with Win10, then try to install the IDT Win8 audio driver using compatibility mode.
1. Click the link to go to the driver's page. Download and save the driver to your desktop or any convenient location on the hard drive. 2. Double click on the new folder to extract (unzip) the driver files.3. The extractor wizard will create a new folder for the driver files. It will be at "c:\dell\drivers\xxxxxx". Write down the exact location that the wizard creates. 4. If the driver begins to install automatically, halt (cancel) the installation.5. Browse to the driver files on the hard drive (the location you wrote down).6. Find the "setup.exe" file.7. Right click on setup.exe to open the context menu.8. Select the Properties.9. Select the Compatibility tab.10. Check the box "run this program in compatibility mode for"... Win8.

A:InstallShield doesn't work, none of the usual fixes work

Depending on what version of InstallShield you have here is a site that shows some of it's program errors >
http://helpnet.installshield.com/robo/projects/installshield10-5compact/CP_IHelpBuildErrors.htm

Have you tried this site > http://consumer.installshield.com/

InstallShield uses the Windows Installer Service. It could be that Windows Installer Service has somehow become corrupted.
Check this site out > http://consumer.installshield.com/kb.asp?id=Q108201

As a last resort you might consider reinstalling your Windows Operating System on top of itself to repair and replace the corrupted or missing files associated with InstallShield and Windows Installer Service.

Just for your information, InstallShield is the oldest installer program company. However there is another that is completely free “Inno Setup” which you may have seen when installing some programs. Here’s their site > http://www.jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php

my computer is working normally without connecting the cd ,but when its connected it the computer doesnt recognize neither the cd nor the hard disk and it doesn't start
both are IDE
 

A:my computer doesn't start when the cd is connected

Hi honaplus and welcome to TSG.

If they are both on the same IDE cable, you need to check the jumper settings on the hard drive to see if it configured as the Master or CS (Cable Select).

If it is jumpered to be the Master, you need to set the jumpers on the CD drive to Slave.

If it is jumpered to use Cable Select, you need to make sure the IDE cable is the CS type with a Blue connector to the motherboard, Black connector for the primary (Hard) drive and a Gray connector for the secondary (CD) drive. The CD drive then needs to be jumpered to use CS.

This is actually a problem in my grandfather's PC,
though is a really bizarre one:
My grandfather owns an HP 4580J OfficeJet,
just like me.
One day, his computer simply didn't see the connected printer,
like she wasn't plugged in at all,
so I tried to use his printer on my PC,
and it worked fine, though there is no problem with
his USB connections (I checked other usb hardwares on it),
and I also tried to reinstall the printer in his PC,
but nothing worked.
any suggestions except formatting his PC?

A:Windows doesn't see the usb connected printer

something you could try is: go to the hp support website and download driver and firmware for the specific printer. You first of all have to type in the model, and that gets you to a page where you have to choose the os, click on the relevant one and it will take you to the relevant downloads. The download will probably be several MB. If you try this get back and let us know either way, if it doesn't help there will be plenty of other suggestions.

I just recently installed Win7 on a newly built computer for my parents, and HP got me the right drivers for Win7 64 bit and all, but the printer never prints. All the documents just sits in the printer queue of the printer. What could be wrong with it?

Also, I installed a Lexmark Z110 series printer on my desktop, Win7 64bit, got it to be detected and all, but still it doesn't print either. Won't even do a test page or nothing.

A:HP Printer connected and all, but doesn't print.

If Windows 7 drivers were never offcially made for your printer than it won't work correctly despite Windows 7 installing what it thought were the correct drivers. Printer drivers for new Op systems are typically slow to come about.

I can't get my old Dell printer to work either despite that fact that Win7 attempted to install drivers for it. Dell never even made Vista 64 drivers for my printer so Win7 one's will just never happen.

Have you tried with the various settings available in the bios (not just the IRQ settings)?

Maybe check the settings that it is using in the old computer and match them if you haven't.

Then again it could be that it is just too old for Windows to see it and install a basic driver for.

When running several GPU programs in a row, it would crash and display a hardware error:   928-Fatal PCIe error  PCIe error detected Slot 5  Completion timeout Slot 5 is the Quadro 600 display card, the K20c being used for computation is in slot 2. Both GPUs are v2.0 cards, and v3.0 slots are supposed to work with v2.0 cards. I found that by going into the BIOS and restricting PCIe slots 2 and 5 to v2.0 speeds (5 GB/s) instead of the default, the GPU would run reliably.  

A:z420 and K20 GPU

We are having the same issue over an HPz420 with 2 NVIDIA Quadro K600, on Windows 7. After a while of operating normally the workstation blocks showing a black the screen. Find attached the errror. This workstation has the last BIOS Firmware available installed. We are really stucked over this situation. Any solution??

Im thinking to buy a 'old' HP Z420 - QUAD CORE E5-1620 ..should be a good idea or this kind of machine are too old?I have actually a Mac Pro 3.1 that i want replace with itDo you think that the Z420 should be better than the Mac Pro 3.1 or i risk of being let down (silly question in the forum HP)?The Mac is from 2008, the Z420 usually in what years were produced?They may have trouble running with Win 10?

Hello,
Well the first thing you should try is to Run System Restore to before all of these problems started or to when you first installed Windows 10.
Then try to download Firefox from there website
https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/
Third thing is I would recommend to get rid of Avast it is low end and could be allowing virus I recommend ether McAfee or Norton Security.

Those are some things to think about
but it is all up to you when making your final decision

Recently I keep getting this
not connected to the Internet.Work off line or reconnect.
But I am connected.How do I fix this...?? I think it must be something Ive done by accident.
Ive gone to file and checked that work off line isn't ticked, any suggestions please.

A:Not Connected Work Off Line..?

I've encountered this occasionally, normally if Windows falls "out of sync" with the connection status. It's supposed to monitor when you're connected and when you're not, so that when you're connected and you close the last internet-using program it can pop up a dialogue asking you if you want to hang up, but unfortunately if you crash mid-session sometimes it can think it's connected when it's not, or visa versa.One of the easiest ways to fix this is to go into Internet Options -> Connections and set your connection to an "always on" connection. This will turn off the monitoring. Send a shortcut to your dial up networking connection to your desktop, and manually make and break the connection each time you want to use it.Recently I keep getting this not connected to the Internet.Work off line or reconnect.

My wireless internet connected says its connected, but when I go to access the internet through Firefox or AIM, it just times out and won't work.

I've ruled out winsock corruption because a similar problem has happened before, and fixing winsock usually fixes it. I also thought maybe it was a virus, and I ran a virus scan, and 2 were found. But after deleting both, the internet still won't work.

Thanks for any help in advance!

Hello. I am trying to fix a friend's computer. It is running on Windows XP. Previously, the built-in wireless never had a problem connecting. She let her sister borrow her computer and now, neither IE (version 6) nor Firefox will load, even though the Wireless Network indicator says "Excellent strength" and is connected to the internet. IE will open but nothing happens. Foxfire says "Server not found." I am not sure if this is something with connection settings or registry files. What can I do to fix it? Thanks!

A:Wireless connected, but does not work

I'd say the most likely issue is a mis-matched encryption key for the router. In the year since you've been gone, they may have had to reset the router's configuration and happened to use a different encryption key.

Hi,Does HP Z420 support GTX 980 Ti GPU ?There few problems I'm facing1- I put GTX 980 Ti GPU and change the PSU corsair AX 860i but system does not ON2- When I put GTX 980 Ti GPU and power separately still system giving beep and red lightSeparately means- For GPU I'm using different PSU and for whole system default HP Delta PSU.3- When I try to run GTX 980 Ti with HP delta PSU system shows insufficient power for GTX 980 Ti, it required more power.Kindly help me I don't what I'm doing wrong here.

A:HP Z420 support gtx 980 ti

@Anu0512?, welcome to the forum. I feel your frustrations. The first thing to check is to see if the motherboard has UEFI or a standard/Legacy BIOS.  HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012.  If it is Legacy the video card will not work. If it is UEFI, does the video card have additional power connectors?  If so, are they connected?

Hi, I've recently replaced the NVIDIA Quadro 2000 with a ZOTAC GTX 750 Zone with passive cooling. Since that change, the rear case fan runs at a very high speed, so that my desktop is much louder than usual. My suspicion is that the motherboard's intelligent fan control is trying to somehow compensate the "0 rpm fan speed" reported by the GPU - which is totally ok since the GPU has passive cooling.  This issue is reproducible. As soon as I switch back to the (fan-equipped) NVIDIA Quadro 2000, the desktop remains almost totally silent. Is there a way to convince the motherboard to just ignore the missing fan speed of the passive cooled graphics card so that the rear fan remains silent?  Thanks,Helge

I am inheriting a z420 ready to go but it does not have any ram. The processor is a E5-1650 v1 so it is one of the first generation. I need to buy ram and Crucial has kits. Can I get the fastest "1866" ? , it's the same price as the slower ram. I know it runs it the models that use the v2 processors. Thanks in advance.

I have a HP Z420 Workstation containing a Xeon E5 1620 processor and I wanted to swap it with a newer revision of the procerssor (E5 1620v4) in the near future. Is that possible?

A:HP Z420 CPU Upgarde

John, Don't buy anything yet.  What you can do will be based on whether you have a version 1 or a version 2 of that workstation.  There was a significant change between the two, and what processors you can upgrade to is based on that as a first step. Go into BIOS and look up the Boot Block Date, which is available under the first tab and let us know.  There are limitations on what processors you can use based on that and also what HP certified for the version you have.  Let us know.... Your current processor, the E5-1620, is a quad core running at 3.6 GHz and has 10 MB cache, and is rated to run at 130W max TDP.  It has a single sSpec code of SR0LC, which can be bought used off eBay for about $40.00 USD now.  You can do better than that, but there are limits... Scott

Hello All Question Are there two different revisions of the Z420 workstation like with the Z400? I've two different pdf for this product and one lists Sandy Bridge E5 Xeons with 1600 Mhz memory and another listing Ivy Bridge E5 V2 Xeons with 1866 Mhz memory? How can one identify one from the other?   Is it the same motherboard and just a BIOS revision that opened up compatibility with these processors and memory?











Solved!
View Solution.

A:Z420 Different Revisions?

Yes, there are two versions.... the original and the "Revision 1".  The original can run the Sandy Bridge Xeon processors that HP certified for it.  The Revison 1 can run both those Sandy Bridge and the newer Ivy Bridge "v2" processors.  A nice little article on the differences between those two generations of processors is linked below.  Again, assuming you have a later version Z420 you generally can only the Sandy and Ivy Brige processors listed by HP can due to built-in BIOS microcode limitations (there are a few rare exceptions): http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2405317,00.asp A trick that works for most HP workstations is to search, for example, for "Z420 Spare Parts" in Google. At the top of the results you'll see the HP page for that, and note under the Z420's Processors section that there are 700000 series part number processors with IB (Ivy Bridge) in front as available processors.  Note also down at the Miscellaneous section at the bottom are a couple of 700000 part number motherboards.  Those are the later Revision 1 versions.  The -001 version comes pre-set for W7 installs; the higher number for W8. I don't have the BIOS boot block date for easy differentiation from original versus Revision 1 for the Z420, but that is the best way to tell if you have one.  The boot block dates for the Z620 and Z820 are 12/28/11 for the original and 3/6/13 for the Revision 1 motherboards.  Look in your BIOS under the first tab for that.... Your Z420 may not have those exact dates but should be close, and you'll know from that. Thus, if you focus on QuickSpecs and HP literature from the early 2013 era you'll start seeing the Ivy Bridge processors being referred to. You can look at the Intel "Ark" site under the HP approved v2 processors to see if there is only 1 sSpec code, and if so you can be sure that you are buying an identical used eBay processor to upgrade to if you go that route.  Search eBay under the sSpec code once you find that at the ark site.... it will be linked at bottom left of the front page for each processor you search for. I've upgraded processors into the Z400/Z600 workstations but not yet a ZX20 workstation.  Same process I am sure, just more expensive.
