Q: HP Z600 & Geforce GTX 1080

Hi,I would like to know if I can install a Geforce GTX 1080 in a z600 workstation?My power supply is 650W so that seems to be enough. I have 2 * 6 pin connector so I guess I can add an adapter to 8 pin. Would this work? Thanks.

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 bought the Acer Aspire 8920G and it comes with the the Nvidia Geforce 9500M video card, the website i bought it from said it is full hd 1920x1080 as well as all the reviews i've seen on it, however the resolution is maxed out at 1680X925. My friend has the 6920G with the same video card and his will do the full HD res. The weird thing is that even the sticker on the laptop it's self says it's full HD?

Hello, I have a Z620 with Dual E5-2620 CPU's, 500GB SSD, 24Gb Ram and the standard PSU is rated at 800W.   I want to run a Geforce GTX 1080 but do not have the 8pin power connector that the card requires.  Would it be optimal to purchase a pin adapter and plug this in line with the SSD or replace the PSU all togther? Thank you!

A:HP Z620 GeForce GTX 1080 Power Option

NVadasz Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about the GTX 1080 and wanted to help. That card is really using a LOT of power -- as there have been a lot of articles lately about how much power it draws, so much so that AMD is working on new drivers to reduce the power consumption. A good site for info about the card is this one: There are also other reviews of similar cards on that site. As to the power cable, it's my understanding that some of the older PSUs, the ones that do not come with an 8-pin cable, have the option to connect two 4-pin cables, as the connectors are designed to be joined.  If you have that option, then you're probably OK, but you can't just change a 4-pin to an 8-pin and have it work.Good Luck

the detailed specs of the PC is listed here the only thing i have upgraded is the graphics card to a 960 gtx mini the rest is the stock parts that came with the PC. do you think this PC would be able to handle the nvida 1080 gtx without major issues?  It requires i think a 500w power supply and it uses i think from the nvidia specs 180watts of power.   it seems technically it should work but  just wondering what HP might say and if anyone else with this simular computer has tried it.  Thanks. Edit:  I have the updated BIos that was released for Windows 8 that unlocks the issue with the secure boot that previous locked out the PC from adding new cards.   am running Windows 10 home currently.

Hello everyone,
I would like to get two PNY GeForce GTX 1080 Founder Edition cards from Dell for my Alienware Aurora R4 but before I make the $1,200 plunge I have just a couple questions. Firstly, Would these cards even work in the Aurora R4? Secondly, would I have to get a new SLI bridge?
Here is my current system

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 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'**

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 ...

Hi, Description explains it all, I've been thinking of replacing my current HDD for a SSD. I haven't done much researching on this myself but thought I would check here just encase there's any known issues/pit falls with installing a ssd into z600 workstation, I will be looking at adding a 1TB ssd. 1. Installing hardware? the z600 3.5 inch caddy wouldn't house an SSD, do HP sell brackets which will fit the z600 ? 2. Compatibility with the workstation? are there types of SSD which are best suited for z600 workstations? 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? Any info would be appreciated, Griff

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

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?

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:

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 ?

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)

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 ...

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 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?

Hey there
I want to buy a HD LCD. But I'm very confused. I've few questions.

1) Does a LCD with D-Sub can't give me 1080 at PC? (Assuming that LCD had HDMI)?
2) I've 8800GT and it has 2 DVI ports but no HDMI. Can I get 1080 at my PC via DVI port?
3) If I connect LCD via DVI to HDMI converter, will it also transmit audio to LCD monitor?
4) If using D-SUB, will there any video quality loss at 1920 x 1080 compared to DVI?
5) What is contrast ratio? Which is better higher or lower?

A:D-SUB support 1080?

The 8800s are capable of transmitting HD over DVI, so you'll need a DVI-to-HDMI cable to connect to your monitor and you can then transmit HD. You can't transmit audio over DVI (there was one 8800GT card that did allow you to, but why would you want to play it through crappy monitor speakers?).

By D-SUB, I'm guessing you mean VGA, and the image quality compared to standard DVI is less noticable on modern monitors, so you won't see much difference. The only difference is with DVI there's no digital-to-analogue conversion needed like with VGA, and that also means DVI isn't affected by interference due to it being digital, unlike VGA.

A higher contrast ratio is better. The contrast ratio is the luminance between white and black, so a higher contrast ratio will give you more vivid and brighter colours.

Users may be unable to use the native resolution of some displays when using Intel? chipset graphics. Resolutions such as 1920x1080, 1680x1050, and 1440x900 are not available in graphics properties.

The display's EDID is not read properly when connecting to a subset of digital flat panel displays. Display devices describe its capabilities by sending EDID (Extended Display Information Data) to the computer.

Intel has released a graphics driver to specifically address this issue; however, there may be side effects to this solution such as longer than normal resume times from standby. This solution will only work with external displays such as DFP displays connected to the computer's VGA port. This driver is not designed to address issues with a notebook's built-in display (Local Flat Panel) or with TV’s connected to the system. This driver is provided as is. Intel has not tested, and does not guarantee, the operation of the driver for this purpose.

For the desktop Intel? 946 and 965 Express Chipset Families:
If you have a computer that has the Intel? 946GZ, G965, Q963, or Q965 Express Chipset, click here for drivers that resolve this issue.

Use the Vista driver (32 or 64, what ever OS you use). Please post back if that helps or not so we can further assist you.

If the case is like mine you remove the front of the case and the cover slides out. Then you can blow out the screen and wash it with water. Of course you would make sure it is dry before putting it back.

Currently my monitor has a max of 1680 x 1050, but I think I should be able to get 1920 x 1080...
My monitor is a 22" widescreen and my video card is a GT 430, and I'm using VGA, I think that's the problem, the VGA, I want to switch to DVI but I ran into a problem...

My two cables that are DVI that I have are outdated I think, they have this plugin on them (The DVI-D Single Link)

But then my monitor has the (DVI-D Dual Link)
And my graphics card has the (DVI-I Dual Link)

There's a picture here, which is where I got the names from, which is how I know about them.
I guess what I'm really asking is if I change to DVI can I do 1920 x 1080, and is it possible to buy a cable to fit my monitor and graphics card?

The price seems really good as well Thanks for the input

It looks to be a good monitor and a good deal. But looks like the LG does not have a PC VGA input. So you need to connect your PC to LG through a HDMI cable.

Will HDMI port work in BIOS mode?

Means can you see the boot screen in Text mode while selecting the boot options for Safe Mode etc. I have not verified this till now.

I will check this on my laptop connected to Sony Wega 32" through HDMI port today.

A:Problems with 5760 x 1080

It must be something with settings, but it seems to work great, as it should : you configure your 3 monitors as one, so when you open maximized application, it opens in that one virtual monitor (3 real monitors), it doesn't really matter what you open, game, office program... So i would suggest to search, if its possible to set different modes for separate applications.

My P50 20EN0013US has the 1080 FHD panel, and I found the backlight is really distracting at less than 100% brightness thanks to the default PWM frequency of 200 Hz. It turns out that the default PWM frequency might be due to the Intel HD drivers. I found a utility on the web to adjust this frequency and now I enjoy up to 20000 Hz PWM frequency resulting in a flicker-free display. Yes! For anyone else out there who gets headaches from the default PWM frequency, try this out. It worked for me. I tried several utilities, but this was the only one that worked for me on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. I should also mention that this utility must be run after every reboot because the Intel HD driver resets the PWM frequency back to 200 Hz on startup.

1. It should be.

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

I have 3 27" monitors in Surround which gives a resolution of 5760 x 1080. The problem is with the scaling of the start menu being way too big. I believe on a 1920x1080 you will get 5 rows of tiles for the start menu but for some reason with the above resolution, it scales way up. I guess because of the 5760 resolution horizontally.

I've tried a few registry tweaks for max rows, etc. but nothing helps. It won't go above 3 rows. So the result is I have a large amount of space to show the start menu but it scales up so huge, I still need to scroll to see everything. I can literally read the tiles just fine from 20 feet away from the screen.

If I could get the 5 rows like on a normal 1920x1080 except that it keeps going across all 3 screens, that would be awesome.

I just got a ViewSonic HD monitor to use with my Samsung notebook (using Windows XP). It says to choose the setting 1920 X 1080 and when I go to do that, I get only two choices for display.

#1 says (Multiple Monitors) on NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS -- and only goes up to 1280 X 800.

#2 says ViewSonic VX2250 SERIES on NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS -- it DOES give an option for 1920 X 1080. However, if I choose this, it makes it a second monitor IN ADDITION to my laptop whereas all I want is for the monitor to show just what the laptop is showing. I have it set that way on my laptop (LCD + CRT clone).

What can I do to just have the monitor show what's on the laptop, but still go to the 1920 X 1080 setting?

THANKS for your help!

Hi,I have a T540P onto which I recently installed a fresh copy of Win8.1 So far, mostly so good, but there is one nagging problem. The laptop is docked and hooked up to a Samsung 23" monitor and when I right click on the desktop and choose 'screen resolution,' the highest resolution that it will let me choose is 1280x1024. I want to set the resolution to 1920x1080. According to the device manager the display adapter is 'Intel(R) HD Grpahics 4600'. I tried updating that driver and the update was successful but it didn't seem to make any difference. I also downloaded and installed the Nvidia driver from the Lenovo support site but that also didn't help. Actually, though there were no errors, I still see the Intel HD Graphics driver in device manager so I'm no even sure if the NVidia driver was installed.Anyway, can anyone point me in the right direction here?Thanks!

To see other benchmarks on that site for the XPS 8900, with various user tested GPUs and other configuration variations, see:

Great data. Hopefully the 1080 will work without issue with our latest XPS 8900 bios. But, as I stated, there has not been any Dell internal memo stating that Dell would be validating the 1080 on the XPS 8900. You need not post the same data on multiple threads.

Is there any advantages to having the 1920x1080 over the 1900x1200 standard for computing and photography work?

I currently use 1900x1200 and have been very satisfied with it so far.

Many thanks,

Heh in many cases there is a MAJOR advantage to monitors that do 1920x1200 instead of 1920x1080

The 1080 "monitors" are actually using LCD TV panels . Much lower quality, color acuracy, etc (generally matched by much lower prices).

So I'd stick to a decent 1920x1200 monitor. One that was for sure made to work for computer imaging and has the full color range LCD panels.

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

I went to the Catalyst Center and set the maximum value to 1920 x 1080 but nothing happened. I installed all new drivers (the drivers for the monitor don't work with Windows 7 x64 but LG says it's plug and play and no drivers are needed).
I also connect the monitor with a VGA cable, cause the case has a weird configuration and all my HDMI cables are too big. Is that why? Please help.

I have tried the Beta drivers from ATI and the latest reccomended drivers from Dell. Neither change the display.

Have update BIOS and all updates from MS.

The beta driver from ATI worked on build 7100, wasnt till I "upgraded" to RTM that the display quit working.

Any helps or tricks would be appreciated as Dells response was "hopefully theyll get around to it soon".
