Q: HP 8000 Elite Small Form Factor Memory upgrade

HelloWe have a dozen HP 8000 Elite SFF with 2GB. We want to upgrade them to 8 GB witn market memory.We tried several manufactures memory and we get always a red flashing led and 4/5 beeps and no POST.We search in the specs of the memory and they are supposed to support DDR3-10600 memory modules with 9-9-9 latency.We tried DDR3-10600 CL9 from G.Skills and Kingstom and no luck.we upgraded the BIOS to the latest version, we placed only one dim in the black socket and no luck. We had an one year old memory dim from g.skill that worked, but the same memory manufactured later didn' work.

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.)

Hello, currently I am trying to upgrade the memory on the elite 8000. I have come across the same error however when I try to install the memory, instead of starting it beeps 4 or 5 times and the fan eventually starts to make a lot more noise. I figured that the memory being installed must be incompatible with some feature of the computer, but I cannot find the error. When plugged into a moniter, nothing shows on the display (and im sure it is properly plugged in.) Ive tested with the old memory (4x1gb) and it works fine. Ive upgraded the OS from windows 7 32-bit to windows 10 64-bit. Ive looked into the manuals, and the memory im installing should work. Any help or ideas?memory purchased:

Has anybody put SSDs in these Elite 8000 sff machines yet and if you have what size.  HP chat support say only 64GB but cant give me any reason what the machine cant address more than that when it can address a 1TB Hard drive. Can anybody shed any light on this or tell me they have put in a 500GB SDD and found it works 

A:HP 8000 small form factor SSD

Hi: I put a Sandisk 240 GB SSD in my 8000 Elite CMT and it works just fine. Didn't want to spend the extra $$$ for a 480 GB one. I see no reason why you couldn't install a 500 GB SSD. Bear in mind that it will only run at the SATA II (3.0 GB/S) speed. The first PC in that class that can run a SATA III HDD or SSD at the SATA III (6.0 GB/S speed) is the 8200 Elite model series. Also you should be able to install up to a 2 TB mechanical hard drive in the machine.

#HPExpertDay Hello, When I look at the driver page for your Elite 8200 SFF, I do not see Windows 10 in the operating system list: With that being said, it means that Windows 10 has not been validated for the unit. We can not guarantee function with Windows 10 and Elite 8200 SFF?s, however, the Windows 8 drivers will usually work for it because they both use the same kernel and core software in the OS. Hope this helped a little, thanks!

I'm looking to upgrade my small form factor desktops graphics card, however I've never done this upgrade before. I now need a HDMI port on my desktop to connect it to my new display. Would this graphics card be correct as im not too sure what I'm looking out for in a compatible card.Thanks in advance

A:HP Pro 3120 small form factor graphics card upgrade

Hi: Yes that card should work, but my only concern is that model has a fanless heatsink (which is nice because it is quiet and no fan to conk out on you). My concern is that the heat sink on the model you posted may stick out too far and interfere with other components inside the small form factor chassis. You may want to opt for this model card if you can get it in the UK. Note that the heat sink does not stick out much beyond the width of the card, and the low profile brackets are included in the box, so you can swap out the mounts. Also the VGA port can be uplugged from the card if you don't need the VGA port. So, open up the case of your PC and take a look around.  If you don't think the larger heat sink in the model you originally wanted is not going to be an issue, then go for it.

Good Evening,

I have recently purchased an Acer x3300 and as soon as i started to play any recent game came into a problem......

The graphics card is rubbish, its a Geforce 9200 256mb.

After looking into buying a new graphics card i hit a few problems.

The computer is a Small Form Factor pc which means i am quite stuck in what i can upgrade.

My question is this, Is it possible for me to rip out the insides and stick them in a normal mini-tower so i can go out and buy a decent pci-e graphics card? For your information my Motherboard is an Acer WMCP78M

Done various searches and came up with nothing, so your help will be much appreciated.

also a problem im having is that it wont read two sd cards that i have, the card reader works for others but not the new ones i got it wont even recognize it at all?

A:HP small form factor expansions?

Can you find a model number on the motherboard and post that here? Whatever information you have on the computer would be helpful. It is tough to say what would be the best without that information. When upgrading the video card you will likely have to upgrade the power supply as well. What is the power supplies output in terms of watts?

Hello, I can get my hands on a used Hp Compaq 8300 Elite sff desktop pc for freei5-24004x2gb ddr3pretty nice base to work with, clean it up re-apply thermal paste and that's a pretty **bleep** decent Cpu to get for free! What i want to do is turn it into a a basic first pc for my 7 year old i want to add a dedicated Gpu though i was thinking something like a gtx750Ti with 60 watt because a it's nice price/performance and B it doesn't need a separate power supply. My question: Assuming it doesn't fit the standard case could I rebuild this pc into a new midi tower case or does the mobo not support standard form factors? like micro Atx for example. Kind regards, Joepiler

I am looking for something thats not going to be very large but will house 3 3.5 drives (IDE more than likely but I have not determined yet if this is the case because this customer will probably spend more money on HDD;'s of any kind to make this pretty.)

I want it to have a single power source and not be too klunky. Raid within it would be a + but not a have to and I don't care about interface firewire or USB 2.0 is fine. Heck even ethernet is okay I guess if I can only find the solution in a NAS.

This has to be an all in one solution not something with a ton of cords or expansions. I already tried to get a NAS with 2 extra USB ports for additional storage but the customer wants something PRETTY and small and unobtrusive.

Anyone know of any products out there that fit this description?

i cant find windows 10 drivers for my HP Compaq dc7800 Small Form Factor PC

A:windows 10 drivers for HP Compaq dc7800 Small Form Factor PC

Hello, Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. Welcome ! I am afraid there are no official Windows 10 drivers for your computer as it is too old model created long before Windows 10 was even in the MS plans. Officially, your computer only supports Win 2000, XP, Vista, 7 Please, note that Windows Vista and 7 are still under active support by Microsoft. Windows 7 is stable and reliable OS with support till year 2020 and is the preffered business operating system (based on current statistics at the moment). I'd recommend you continue using it on this PC. As for Windows 10, if you insist on trying it, you may want to test.Do create a back-up of all your files on external media. You can get Win 10 Enterprise edition and test it for free for 90 days >> Once you install Win 10, you can try to update drivers for network, sound, video, chips, etc... using the Windows Update method or Device manager. Here is how >> Although HP does not officially support or offer drivers for W10 for this device, Microsoft may have drivers and the device might work on Windows 10 (no guarantee). If it works, you can use it. If not, just restore back your previous copy of WIndows or preferred OS. If you need details on how to prepare Win 10 installation media, how to back up your files or something else, please post again and I'd provide details. Let me know if this works for you.

Good morning everyone!

I have a HP Compaq dc7800p Small Form Factor PC. It originally had Vista business on it, but--for obvious reasons--I am downgrading to XP Pro. This is was supposed to be a routine wipe and install, however, I must be mislead as to which drivers are required--specifically the network driver.

I have used the following HP site to obtain my network drivers.

HP Compaq dc7800 Small Form Factor PC >> Windows XP >> Driver Network

Knowing that obviously some wouldn't work, I did try all of them out of desperation. Am I searching in the wrong place for these drivers? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I think I understand what you are trying to do.

To get Windows 7 on your system with a new hard drive or a old hard drive you will need to do a Clean Install of Windows 7 using a proper media and COA key. The hardware will have to be capable of using Windows 7.
You will need to buy a Microsoft Windows 7 DVD with the proper COA key.
I personally buy my Windows operating system from a local dealer.

This tutorial by Brink will instruct you how to do a Clean Install.

Try using this from Microsoft and see if your hardware is proper for Windows 7.

We have had a handful of Dell 7040SFF monitor issues. The user will be in the middle of something-online, email, reading documents and their monitor or monitors will go completely black for about 30 seconds. 
Windows 7, 64-bit, 8 GB ram, Intel i5-6500 CPU
I have updated the bios, chipset, and installed the video display drivers and control panel. We have Dell monitor P2014H Flat Panel. 
I even went so far to have a user's motherboard replaced. STILL that did not fix the issue. 
This investigator with the issue(we are the sheriff's office) figured out the problem...
His 800 MHz police portable radio was the problem. If that radio is less than 4 ft away from the 7040 the monitors do not blank-out. So fortunately that is an easy fix.

Having some trouble putting a PCI Express graphics card into an 8000 Elite CMT.  It's a Radeon HD7950 and I've already noticed a couple of issues: 1) The Power supply isn't large enough. I've read a few issues where the PSU in 8000 CMT's has a different chassis size to standard PSU's. 2) The motherboard doesn't have the required 6-pin PCI Express power connectors. I guess upgrading the PSU to one that has the requried power and has seperate PCI Express power connectors will solve the issue, can anyone confirm that this can be done with an 8000 CMT? ThanksGareth

You do have the proper expansion slot, however you have a very weak power supply, I'm actually surprised it even supports the 5570 according to the specs I found you only have a 220 watt psu. You're really going to need quite a bit more to be stable with a more powerful graphics card.

Then I lost all my apps. Office, u torrent, abode, autoCAD, iTunes everything was inaccessible from my old hd when connected to the 3rd socket. I had to change the speed in bios from 1.5 gbs to the max only 3 gbs. Then I has to change the settings so everything I downloaded or saved would go on my hd which is drive D now. I also seem to get a lot more of 'Firefox not respondimg' and other screen freezes or not responding. I don't know if this is a ssd the net connection but it seems to happen more than it did before.

I purchased on of these as reconditioned and it works fine.Recently I noticed that there is no CPU fan, or even a bracket to hold a cpu fan.I have look at others of this type online, and noticed that same thing.Doesn't this CPU need a cooler?

View Solution.

A:HP Compaq 8000 Elite PC cpu cooling

Hi: If you have the SFF model, the processor is cooled by the chassis fan. The air from the fan flows through the heat sink and provides adequate cooling for the processor. I can't remember if the fan blows the air into the heat sink or draws it away (exhausts it) from the heat sink. Just hold your hand near the fan outlet to feel which way the air is blowing. There should be a plastic shroud (fan baffle) over the fan and heat sink. You can see the parts list below... The 8000 Elite CMT has a separate processor fan atop the heat sink.

#HPExpertDay Hello, If I am understanding you correctly, it sounds like you want to re-image the computer and delete all files from your HDD. On these desktops, you will have to run a disk sanitizer on a 4GB or less USB and boot to the USB from the BIOS. If you install the disk sanitizer found here: to run the utility, during the install it will ask if you would like to save it to the USB, go through the prompts to finish installing. Then, you will unplug the USB, power down the unit, plug the USB back in, and as soon as you press the power button, start pressing the F9 key until it loads the BIOS boot options. Once you see the list of options, you will select HP Disk Sanitizer and hit the enter key to get it to start running. It will take a couple of hours so it may be best to run it overnight. Finally, when it is complete you can then re-load Windows back on the machine. You will need the restore media CD?s that came with your unit, if you have lost or misplaced them, give Elite Support (1-866-625-1175) a call to order some new ones for you. I hope this helps, thanks!

Hi, Bill: 4 beeps are indicating a power supply issue of some kind, or the motherboard you just installed is NG. Please see the service manual at the link below, Appendix C, page 197.

Hello Everyone, This is my first post, excuse me for any error. I have a HP 8000 elite Ultra Slim PC. I updated the BIOS to the last version 1.14 Rev A. When I tried to install Windows 8.1, I can't to select UEFI mode in the BIOS. Question: This model with the last BIOS update, support UEFI mode? Thanks.

A:hp 8000 elite USFF support UEFI

Hi: The first HP 8xxx Elite business desktop that has a UEFI BIOS is the 8200 Elite. The 8000 Elite does not have a UEFI BIOS, and there are no BIOS updates or other methods to give it one.

I want to upgrade the hard drive in my 8000 Elite.  It seems all of them are 6G/s (SATA 3) these days.  Seagate says the one I'm looking at will work if my computer isn't 6G/s if the controller supports SATA speed autonegotiation.  1st question:  What is the speed of the controller, I've spent the last couple of hours searching without success. 2nd question:  Does this controller support SATA speed autonegotiation? Thanks!Vince.

I want to play Steam games on my PC but I'm not sure if I have a good enough video processor. The PC is just using the integrated Intel chip. I tried looking on HP for compatible cards, but am finding various versions of each one, and I'm not sure which are compatible or if my power supply is enough; I can't even figure out how to see how many watts the power supply is or which cards will work with it. I'm unable to find something on HP to scan the hardware, and the specsheet just shows all variations of the PC.

I have an HP 8000 Elite Ultra Slim running Windows 10.  What size SATA hard drive can I upgrade to?(1tb, 500 gb, less?)

A:Largest SATA drive for HP 8000 elite Ultra Slim

Hi: To use the drive as a boot drive, 2 TB is the max, since the 8000 Elite series does not have a UEFI BIOS. I don't know offhand if the USDT allows for additional HDD's to be used for storage only.

I have recently purchased an MSI KM Factor Change? Form PSU M-V socket A mobo which I have substituted in my PSU Form Factor Change? eMachines W The mobo was brand new albeit some years old I have tried two brand new PSU s on the mobo one an Antec W and the other a Dynapower w but neither of them will give me a video signal although they power up the HDD s Floppy Drive CPU amp Fan Out of curiosity I used the my old eMachines PSU a Bestec w not a wise move I m aware but that works just fine to the extent that I am using it to write this My computer is around years old and I am of the opinion that the PSU form factor must have changed over that time or is there something else I am overlooking here Can anyone figure out what the problem is as I find it very difficult to believe that both brand new PSU s are DOA nbsp

Hi All, I'm looking at upgrading the graphics card in my TC-705 - but it doesnt look like there is anywhere near enough room in the case for a top end video card - so I'm looking to buy a new case (I already upgraded the PSU). Does anyone know the correct form factor of the motherboard? It looks like a mini-ATX to me. Thanks!

A:Tc-705 Motherboard form factor

Hello, Motherboard form factor: DTX - Dimensions (mm): 243x200

Hi. I'm thinking on getting a Thinkcentre m.900 Small Form Factor. I'm also planning on adding a Samsung PRO 950 NVMe SSD which has a M.2 2280 Form Factor.
From the m900 SFF specs I see that it has a m.2 slot, but I haven't found any information about what kind of m.2 slot it is. Can I connect a m.2 2280 SSD directly to the m900 SFF? Or do I have to use it with a a PCIe adapter?
Mod:  edited title for clarity

Go to Solution.

A:M900 SFF: what's the M.2 SSD form factor?

I have the same question and also want to buy this unit and drop in a Samsung 950 Pro, but before I buy I also want to confirm that it support PCIe and all 4 lanes. The form factor that the 950 Pro supports is m.2 2280 and the interface is "PCIe 3.0 x4 (up to 32 Gb/s) NVMe 1.1". Does the M900 Tiny support the same?
