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.)

Does the Dell T7910 support M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD?
Does it have a M.2 port?
Specifically I'm looking to add this: SAMSUNG 950 PRO M.2 512GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-V5P512BW
I also have a quadro video card in my configuration, will that cause any conflicts due to not enough PCIe lanes or something?

A:Does the Dell T7910 support M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD?

I have just spent 3 weeks trying to make the Samsung 950 PRO work in my Dell t7910 and after sending the 950 pro to Dell to have them try and figure it out, they have given up and told me it is incompatible.  I also spent many hours on the phone with Samsung and they gave up as well.  Good Luck!

Hi all (Dell - mods - would especially appreciate your response):
I am considering buying a Samsung 950 SSD for my XPS 13 9350.  The machine currently has 128GB SATA SSD.
Does anyone know - and I called and chatted with Dell Tech Support and it seems like they are not too familiar with these concepts - whether these machines support 2 or 4 lanes PCIe for the SSD?
One Dell rep on the phone told me 2 lanes.  A Dell chat support told me 4 lanes.  Neither seemed too confident in their answer and one referred me to a Wikipedia page as a source.
I know the 9350 supports PCIe connections.   Just trying to figure out if it is 4 or 2 since that will impact the speed - and decision on what SSD to buy.
From what I see the machine also supports NVMe - but if anyone knows this for sure please let me know.

Yesterday I installed a Samsung 950 pro 256gb m2 pcie nvme ssd into a Dell E7270
Older configuration was with a sandisk regular sata 3 ssd. After replacement did a bios reset twice, once factory reset, once custom. (I left sata on ahci.)
I chose to install windows 10 pro x64 by using the uefi/gpt methode. Legacy options off.
Installation went without a problem. Afterwards I installed the Samsung nvme driver
Also the Samsung magician software. It reports a link speed 8Gbps (is ok), link width 16 Gbps (should be 32?) .
Is there a way to change the pcie link width from 2x to 4x? I thought this ultrabook did support x4.

I currently have Motherboard Asus P5B-Plus Vista edition which has
1 x PCI-E x16, 3 x PCI-E x1, 3 x PCI 2.2

I plan to build a data server with this motherboard and buy Promise Supertrak EX8350 which is PCI-E x4 Raid controller card.

My question is. Instead of buying a new motherboard that has PCI-E x4 slot.
Can I just install the PCI-E x4 Raid controller card into PCI-E x16 slot which is normally for video card? And Just buy a cheap regular PCI video card for PCI 2.2 slot?

Hopefully someone could help me with this and I thank you in advance.

The 4X card has the long edge connector for the socket I assume, then yes. I have a second x16/4 slot that, iirc, they say will work as a 4x slot. That said, do they make a PCIE x1 videocard for the short slot?

A:Running PCIe 3.0 Graphics Card on PCIe 2.0?

PCIe 3.0 is still irrelevant at this point, there is simply no current card that can effectively make use of the full bandwidth of 2.0 let alone 3.0. It is overrated and offers no real life performance advantage over 2.0. Running any PCIe 3.0 card in a PCIe 2.0 slot will not affect performance, the benefits of PCIe3.0 are only visible while running intensive applications with a multi-GPU setup.

Hello guys, i'm having a bit of trouble with my Sound Blaster Xfi Fatal1ty titanium, the issue is as follows:

There's a huge heat sink that prevents the card fitting properly into the single pcie x1 slot on my board, so what i rly would like to know is if it is possible to have it working on a pcie x4, risk free ofc. I've done a few searches on this forum and i've read it is possible but i rly want to be sure before doing anything. Another doubt i have is if i need to make any changes on my bios cuz i'm not sure if pcie x1 and pcie x4 slots work on the same power specs.

A:PCIe 2.0 to PCIe 1.0 Crossfire will there be any issues

You might need to be more specific.
I don't think I've heard of a motherboard that natively takes a 2.0 spec lane (500MB/sec upload/dl per lane) and splits it to 1.0 (250MB/sec upload/dl per lane) - that is usually the function of an onboard bridge chip (or lane extender) such as Nvidia's NF200.

Now, taking your comments at face value -although if you could post the motherboard vendor/model it would certainly help- then it is likely that the PCI-E lanes would be 1.0 spec.
The bright side is that, the HD5770 doesn't use enough bandwidth to make any difference whether the lanes are 1.0 or 2.0 (or 3.0 -soon to be added), unless the slot is labelled PCIe x16 but is actually x4 electrical (or lower).

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 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'**

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 ...

I would like to know if the Z600 will support the 3.1 USB adapter card and if so, what do I need for an installation?

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:

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.

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.

A:Z600 with dual X5680 CPU

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 ...

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

A:USB 3.0 for Z800

Thomas, Here's the deal.  The Z600/Z800 did not have USB3.0 built into the motherboard; Z620, etc. does.  HP came out with two plug-in PCIe cards for those earlier Zs to provide USB3.0.  You don't want the first version of the card (based on NEC/Renasus controller), with only 2 total USB3.0 outputs, on the card's backplane. You do want the later version of the card, based on a Texas Instruments controller with "2x2" output for 4 total; two on the backplane and two internal.  That TI based card uses the same drivers as for the current Z workstations...... the TI chip is on the motherboard now but same drivers work.  Here is the card.... you don't need to use that little USB3 to USB2 adapter, which plugs into the card's internal header.  Read on for how you can use that internal header instead. Power:  The two versions of the cards both need +5VDC power from the power supply.  +5VDC does not come up from a PCIe slot.  Some other cards up- or down-regulate other slot voltages to 5V, but not this one.  I like this approach best. Don't install drivers until the card is plugged in and the proper power is supplied to the card.  You can see from the link above that HP provides an adapter to pull power from a standard SATA power cable, but there are also 4-pin Molex to SATA adapters that can feed the card, and I even have driven the TI version of the card off of a floppy power feed-to-SATA adapter as an experiment.  Because 4 USB3.0 ports used simultaneously could draw a good bit of power the floppy power source idea is not a great idea for the long haul.  I'm sure you can get all kinds of power adapters, but I'd stick with what HP provides in that kit.  The kit part will work great.  My adapters needed some adapting themselves due to the odd way the SATA power port is attached to the card.  It can be done but I needed to do some fiddling to use non-provided cables.  Again, don't try to run this or load drivers without the proper power feed in place first. Now, about that set of two internal USB3.0 ports.  They are in the form of a "2 x 5 header" with 9 total pins at the TI card's rear end, and that other port you see facing upwards is the SATA type of power cable feed into the card.  The dual port USB 3.0 header allows running a dual cable forward to the front of the computer where you can site a two port floppy bay USB3.0 device.  The best I have ever found is from Akasa, and I have this running in my favorite xw6600.  It is very high build quality, and has a long enough cable set to reach the card easily: Hunt around for that model number with google and you'll find some pics showing the built-in long cable leaving the device with the proper header plug at its end to mate with the card header.  I wish Akasa had the length specified, but for me I had to coil up some of the cable and zip tie it inside the device because it was significantly more than I needed for my xw6600 build.  It will be more than enough for your Z800 if you choose to use that. The two USB3.0 ports are offset to the right, as you see, and that puts them near the middle of the front face of the workstation.  I don't use the 2.5" drive mounting capacity of that adapter (other than for the cable being coiled up in it) but it puts the floppy bay area to very good use.  That is a nice solid brushed black aluminum front face and the sides are strong sheet metal.  The whole unit is sturdy and looks great. Finally, speed...... you want that card plugged into a fast PCIe slot.  For my xw6600 both PCIe x16 slots are PCIe type 2.... That has the bandwidth to match or beat USB3.0 capabilities.  For that build my video card is in the top PCIe x16 and the USB3.0 card... Read more

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]

Used computer hardware doesn't retain much value as there is always new/faster hardware available for the same or less cost then the hardware you are selling. As you are selling more specialized hardware, you may get a better price. But at the same time, the market is smaller for specialized hardware.

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.

Hello I have a z800 2009 edition with cpu Xeon x5550 and Quadrofx 3800. I do not know much about hardware specs and I need some help because I'm planning to upgrade. So I was wondering  if I could upgrade my z800 with newer cpu and gpu specs. Like the nvidia gtx 980 or the titan graphics cards. And newer cpu released this year? Maybe not use a Xeon Processor but an Core i7 2015 Processor?  Thanks I really appreciate the helpjp

A:Z800 Upgrade for 2015

jp, before you get different xeon processors, go into the Z800 BIOS setting and look at the boot block date.      If the boot block date is 01/30/2009, the system supports only 55xx series processors.      If the boot block date is 11/10/2009, the system supports both the 55xx and 56xx series processors. This forum already has many threads about updating the Z800's CPUs.  FYI, check this before buying some more CPUs.

A:Z800 power on issue

The Z800 power supply has 3 blind mate connectors, that plug into 3 connectors and cable assemblies in the chassis.  Pull out the Z800 power supply, and look at the 3 white connectors in the chassis.  Each of these 3 chassis connectors have 2 support pins each to hold the connectors in the chassis cutouts.  Check if these pins were damaged, and if the connectors were pushed out partially.  If the chassis connectors were pushed out,  it is possible the power supply is making intermittent contact with the chassis connectors/cables. You removed the power supply and plugged it into the outlet on its own.  If the green light comes on, the supply is good (as you said below). Sometimes, if the power cord is pulled out of the system quickly (or swtiched off from a opwer strip) after the system is shut down, the power supply can beep and the power LED can flash for a very short time afterwards.  This happens because there was not enough time for the main voltages to decay before the power cord is pulled.  It is not a failure, just an annoyance, and not the cause of your power up problem.  Let me know if this helps.

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.

Hey kbruff2016 welcome to the community! WD Black is a performance-oriented HDD designed for heavier and more extensive workloads as well as heavier multitasking. It should serve you well for a long time as it comes with a good 5-year warranty.  Do you have any other drives in your workstation? It may be a good idea to consider as SSD for the OS as you would see great improvements in the loading/boot times and overall responsiveness of the system. If you planning on using the HDD in any RAID arrays in the future I would recommend going with a NAS/RAID-class drive as they have additional features such as TLER support that ensure stable and safe performance in such conditions.

HP Z800 refreshed win 7 pro 64 ... windows updates not completing...Newly installed OS - everything seems to work fine, except for the endless hang at WIndows update...Checking for updates. This apparently affects the update to Windows 10 as well. Does anyone have any insights? I have tried all the help options via MS website. Thank you.

Greetings, Please read this. You can wait patiently (updates will eventually appear) or there is a fix in the article. You will have to reinstall Windows for the fix. Your PC must be isolated from the network when reinstalling windows. You have to download two updates and install them before connecting your PC to the network. I have used Ed Bott's fix and it works. But I reinstalled Win 7 again. I was not going to wait for hours and hours to get security updates. You could try installing those updates on the problematic Win 7 installation: 1. Apply the Microsoft fix found here. Disconnect from the network. 2. Install those two updates offline and cross your fingers. 3. Try Windows Update again. Cheers!

Hi there I am posting here to get understanding nbsp and possibly help for a strange behavior nbsp I have with my Z machine nbsp This machine is running Windows x Pro and it is equipped Quadro Z800 4000 usage very high with with a Nvidia Quadro graphics board The system is basically quiet and not very hot but my issue is that everything nbsp I turn on any kind of graphical nbsp software the system become immediately extremely loud and hot due to the Quadro fan nbsp I understand that obviously the graphical nbsp card is generating heat under heavy nbsp Z800 with Quadro 4000 very high usage load but my issue is that it spike to max power for any kind of graphical nbsp computation nbsp For instance just by browsing the internet any webpage nbsp that has a small Flash animation or anything inside will immediately spike the Q to maximum clock heat production and surely ventilation I ended up disabling nbsp hardware acceleration in Chrome to avoid this very annoying behaviour nbsp Same thing for application like AutoCAD as soon as I turn it on it apparently commands the graphics nbsp card to immediately run at high clock rate Even if I am not drawing at all or just drawing very basic D object the graphics nbsp card appears to be running at maximum capacity nbsp I noticed that this strangely also happens with some completely non-graphical nbsp related tasks For instance I noticed that Visual Studio installation program spikes the GPU usage as well while the IDE itself does not produce this behavior nbsp For your reference please find following an example of idle status of the machine nbsp While the following image shows what's happening after a few minutes of AutoCAD basic drawing just D design nbsp Now the basic question is everything OK here and the behavior nbsp of the card is the one I should expect and I simply misunderstood how it works or is something actually wrong and I should do something to fix it nbsp Thanks for any insights you might provide nbsp Luca
