Preferred Solution: HP Z600 Workstation doesn't show anythink

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.)

A: HP Z600 Workstation doesn't show anythink

Do the system fans start to spin after you hit the power button ?Does the workstation not beep and blink red ?

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?

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: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c01719695 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:

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

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.

Data writes and reads from the drive fine.

I've tried formatting it and deleting the partition and creating a new one.

Very likely.
You can check to see if there is dust or hair in the slots or if there is damage or corrosion on the RAM stick.
But if the RAM is not working you will get no video.

Hey all,

My RAM took a dump, but luckily I had a lifetime warantee on it. So while I got a replacement, I also bought another 512mb as well to bring up my total to a gig. After I installed it and booted up, I went to my system menu and it only registered 512mb. My computer "seems" a bit faster with opening programs and such (even booting up seemed quicker), or maybe it's just me.
Is this a known problem? Or should it show all the RAM that is installed.

I read something about a Record tab in the CD drive properties? I couldn't find one so am wondering if the system is not seeing it correctly or if it's just bad?

I tried Microsofts little program to check the device drivers and it said they're all okey dokey.
I tried going thru the Device manager and uninstalling the driver there, auto detect found the cd but still looks the same.

I tried the "Fix Missing CD in XP or 2K.zip " I saw on another thread. I tried Dell and ran thru a self test.

I don't know if the drive is just bad or something else?

I am running XP SP2 with IE 6.0.2900.2180-XPSP_sp2.
Since I upgraded I cannot see the interactive buttons (the buttons on the left that link to other pages) on several websites that were published with Front Page 2003. When I log on, I see the blocks where the buttons are but no text and they are not active. I have 3 other computers on this network and they all work just fine, but they have not been updated to SP 2, which makes me think it's something in the program. Of course, one cannot go back to the old IE 6 because one cannot uninstall the new one. I hope someone else has run into this problem and found the answer.

I used Sart > Run > "dxdiag" > Display and it still says 512.

I also tried Control Panel > Display > Settings > Advanced > Adapter

Windows 7 has it's own 80gb harddrive but i have another HDD with Ubuntu 9.10 in a 20GB partition and a sharedNTFS in the remaining 130~ GB.

The NTFS partition used to show up in 'My Computer' fine, but after re-installing Ubuntu 9.10 it doesn't. (NO i have not erased the entire disc as i can still access it in Ubuntu and it has all my files etc on)

Any ideas on how to get it to show up? it's even missing from the disc manager.

A:Partition doesn't show up

Linux uses a different file system other than Windows' standard of NTFS. Linux uses ext2, ext3.

This normally can not work with Windows. It's been a long time for me since I played around with Unix based OSes, but there may be some kind of patch or software you can run to help you mount the Linux partition from within Windows. Google is a good resource to find what you need, if it exists.

Good luck and let us know if this helped.

Which drivers did you update?

Which version of Windows are you running? Which service pack?

Boot to safe mode. Does the drive appear? Reboot to safe mode. Does the drive appear?

Do you have a bootable CD / DVD? For example the installation disk for XP or Vista? Will your computer recognize the disk during the boot process?

Right click on "My Computer" and then click on "Manage." Next go to "Disk Management." At this point you should be able to see the drive in question. Now right click on the drive you want to forrmat and click on Format.

I tried to do that, but when I found the key in registry, I didn't see those "filters". I haven't found any other fixes so I thought I'll ask for your help here. Any suggestions are welcome.

To be able to have any insight into the problems, It is necessary to know a bit more...when you installed to system, did you do a clean install? Sometimes, when an update install has been done, it will cause problems later. When did these problems appear...did it correlate with any particular change or update that was made? If so, going back to a restore point just prior to when this started happening might help.

2 days ago when I was cleaning my computer from inside from dust, and when i connected everything back (I didn't pull out any of the components) my monitor went blank, and only the brown light was shining. Then I disconnected the graphics card and put it back in. All the same, my graphics card still works, but I had to connect the monitor to the motherboard integrated card. When my system booted up (Windows 7 Ultimate), in devices and printers tab, under the computer icon was a yellow questionmark, saying that the PCI memory controller misses drivers, but it can't find them on the Internet. My MB is AMD 690v , and my graphics card is ATI HD 4670. What should I do? PLEASE HELP ASAP. Thanks.
 

A:Monitor doesn't show picture!

You motherboard may contain that AMD chipset but that is not the motherboard make and model. You need to identify the motherboard make and model and go to the motherboard manufacturer's website to find drivers for it. You would go to ATI's website for graphics drivers if you ever need them.

That said, you shouldn't suddenly be missing these drivers. Did you take precautions against static electricity discharge while you were cleaning the insides of the PC? Hopefully reinstallation of the motherboard drivers will be enough.

By the way connecting your monitor to the integrated graphics does not mean your Radeon HD 4670 card still works. It only works if your monitor is plugged into the 4670 and you get a normal output.

How to start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature
To start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, follow these steps: 1. Start your computer.
2. When you see the "Please select the operating system to start" message, press the F8 key.
3. When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.
4. If you are running other operating systems on your computer, use the ARROW keys to select Microsoft Windows XP, and then press ENTER.

Or try this.
If you can open taskmanager ctrl+alt+delete

start up the Windows XP Task Manager and select the Applications tab.

Now select the New Task button at the bottom of the window. A new smaller window will appear. In it simply type:

explorer.exe

explorer.exe is the Windows Program Manager (or Windows Explorer.) It manages the Windows Graphical Shell including the Start menu, taskbar, desktop, and File Manager. By restarting this process the graphical interface for Windows will reappear.

A:Solved: avi duration doesn't show up

That may have been deleted from the registry. Removing it is a common fix for machines that lock up when an avi folder is opened. You are better off without it. Use music editing software to get avi details.

The fix is to go to:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.avi\shellex\PropertyHandler

and create a new entry:

(Default) {87D62D94-71B3-4b9a-9489-5FE6850DC73E}

I wasn't sure where to put this since it happens in various instances...so it is going here! :)

Since last night, I've noticed that in Outlook and in various websites, when I type, nothing shows right away...it takes about 30 seconds or so before the text "catches up" to what I've typed. It is sooo frusterating!!!! But like on here, I am having no issues with it. MYSPACE is one place it has been sluggish...and on Yahoo mail...Outlook....

I don't get it. What's up with it???

Thanks for any insight! :)

Have an Access 2000 report form that uses as one header the name of a person (the Reservee) entered into a table. The table is linked as the parent to a child table (the Manifest) that contains the names of all the people accompanying the Reservee (and displays in the Detail section). Problem is, if there is ONLY a Reservee, and no one is entered as coming with them, THE REPORT FORM SHOWS NO DATA; i.e., it opens as though there's no record.

If I enter ANYTHING, like a single period (.) in any field in the Manifest table, then the report works correctly.

What's wrong?
 

A:Solved: Header doesn't show!?

I found the answer to the problem myself (as usual, light bulb went on when I WASN'T thinking about it). I'm posting the solution here so others may learn from it.

The reason the report acted as if the parent record didn't exist when there were no entries in the child table was because of the JOIN between the tables in the query that is the record source for the report. It had been defined as and "inner join". Inner joins will only display records where the join fields were equal IN BOTH TABLES. Obviously, when there is no child record, the join fields can't be equal because there's no join field in the child table for that parent record. By simply changing it to an "outer join", where the query displays ALL parent records and only those from the child table where the join fields are equal, it displays all parent records whether or not they have child record(s).

Hope this is helpful to someone.

Search doesn't show the filepath!

I'm using Vista Business 32bit on a Toshiba Satellite Pro laptop. This seems a very basic matter - you Search for something, and you find it - but you don't know where it is because unlike good old XP there's no filepath! I have tried checking "show full filepath" in the folder properties, and I've tried selecting "Path" in the right column dropdown in the window. I trained on XP for years, but I'm a recent convert to Vista.

Hello Lionheart, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Hello,

I have little experience with computers, so please bear with me here.

I deleted an account quite a while ago as I wasn't using it anymore. However, it is still showing up in the Users folder of my C: drive. It doesn't show up on the welcome screen, in the control panel's account manager, or even in Vistax64's System Info program, so I can't remove it. I can still delete some files off of it, but I would like the whole account gone, as it takes up a large amount of space.

I've had no issues with this other then documents (Open Office) being taken over by an 'Unknown User', which I suspect is this account. What should I do? I've searched all over for a solution, and couldn't find one that matched my problem.

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FS570 laptop, and when I turned it on yesterday, it booted up to my desktop and I could move the cursor around the screen, but none of my icons or the taskbar showed up. Ctrl-alt-delete didn't work, so I booted it in safe mode and ran chkdsk. It found one problem with .lnk file and fixed it, but the problem remained the same. I was able to open the task manager in safe mode, and I noticed that services.exe was using 99% of the CPU most of the time.

I have symantec antivirus software installed, I run Malwarebytes and regcure at least once a week and left them fix any problems. I am running Windows XP home with service pack 3 installed.

Can anyone help me?

A:Desktop doesn't show; services.exe using 99% CPU

Regcure may be the cause of it all. It's a myth, crapware and will never do anything useful for anyone, ever. As an aside, advocates that use it need to be directly confronted as often as possible due to the fact that their ignorance causes similarly uninformed people to use it and have serious problems. It SHOULD be classified as malware, not so much because of what it does, or what it claims to do, but due to the fact that so many ignorant people use it and then have problems.

Continue to run chkdsk in order to find out if the HD is consistantly good, or is giving regular errors as an early-warning sign of pending failure.

Have you used the Safe Mode menu to boot to "Use Last Known Good Configuration" ?

What happens when you use Task Manager to kill the process using 99% of the CPU ?

You should not have both Symantec and Anit-Malwarebytes. AV software frequently conflict and cause probems. Further, the effect of doubling your AV scanners does not double your protection. If it increases it at all, that increase is marginal. However, it DOES double the load on your computer resources, and slows your machine down. Uninstall one or the other.

If possible, running a System Restore may fix the whole problem. It's possible a Windows Update failed and an SR will send the machine back to when it worked.

A:Win XP doesn't show thumbnails for xvid avi's

Having varied codecs does not take up that much space at all, or
slow your pc down. They are nothing more than tools to allow you
to view/hear other media formats. Imo you cant have enough. I
use coles codecs,,Ive also used k-lite codec pack,,With either not
sure if you will be able to see thumbnails, I never pay much attention
to those...
