Q: HP Z600 System board / Motherboard that supports x5670 proce...

I am in need of a new system board for a Z600 but want to know which version would work with the 56xx series of Xeon dual processors? There's 460840-001, 460840-002 and 460840-003. The one that came with the machine was 460840-003 / REV AE, but it died so I got a replacement 460840-001 / REV 0D, however, I can't get the computer to post. So I'm looking for which board and Revision I need to make it work? Thanks. Would this one 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.)

The Z600 460840-003 supports both the 55xx and 56xx Xeon processors. As you discovered, the 460840-001 only supports the 55xx Xeons. I am not sure about the 460840-002, but there are other threads in this forum where some have tried the varioius -00x Z600 versions.

I cannot find any information as to what processors this board is supposed to support. I have two of them. I know it supports a 1-GHz Athlon because I am running one with that now; but, how fast a processor can I put on it?

I have written the company I purchased it from and waited four business days with no answer. Also, there is nothing in the manual, nor at the AOpen site as to speed. There's plenty of info at AOpen about the board and at other sites; but, nothing about speed.

yugandhar welcome to the Seven Forums.

It doesn't matter what type of memory is on the video card as it has no relation at all to what is used on the motherboard.

As far as that card you have selected, it is OK for multimedia uses but terrible for gaming. It is the lowest of the low end and even when it first came out (back in 2009), it was barely any better than the Intel graphics of the time.

A:Satellite Z830 - I wonder if the motherboard supports more than 6GB memory

The chipset is responsible for the RAM
So you have to know if the chipset would support the 6GB RAM,.

The Z830-10w supports the Mobile Intel(R) HM65 Express Chipset and it should support 8GB RAM

From my knowledge the unit is equipped with one 2GB internal RAM which is NOT removable.
You can upgrade ONLY one slot?
So one slot can handle 4GB RAM and in such case the 6GB RAM are supported.

A:Motherboard supports integrated GFX card processor doesn't?

Yussi, you board has integrated graphics but the CPU does not. There is a GPU chip built in the board. Some Intel CPUs have a GPU built in them, yours doesn't though. The integrated will still work but you may have to enable it in your BIOS if you also have a dedicated GPU card.

Most BIOSes will disable the onboard GPU when you put a card in the PCIe slot.

will a intell Xeon x5670 work in a z400

A:X5670 work in a hp z400

I think you have a shot at this, and please do post back on your experimentation. Read up in here on the two different versions of the Z400/Z600/Z800, and how to look at their boot block date in BIOS to tell if you have version 1 or version 2 (which is officially known as revision 1). Then, read up on the processor limitations depending on whether you have the earlier or later version.  If you have the original version then you are out of luck due to a chipset limitation. Then, there is info on whether a processor is listed in your workstation's QuickSpecs.  Generally if it is not listed it it will not work due to it not being present in the "microcode" part of BIOS.  Just because it theoretically should work does not mean that it will.  This rule has a very few exceptions, and this may be one of them. Long and short of it is.... if you have the revision 1 motherboard (the later version) and you load the latest BIOS you might just get lucky and have it work.  You'll need to learn about "Performance" heatsinks, too.  If the motherboard does not see a high performance heatsink it will refuse to proceed.  You can spoof the motherboard on this, however, but it is best to use a true higher performance HP heatsink in this situation rather than the wiring spoof. If you have free access to one of those processors and a Performance heatsink I'd recommend trying it.  You won't hurt the processor or the workstation.  There are some hints that this will work, despite it not being supposed to in the Z400 revision 1.  Everything above must line up correctly..... Let us know.......

So, my intel d875 got fried

I have found a few AGP slotted mobos and this one is what I may be going with

My question is will my new card provide the same features as the old and therefore be compatible? I checked to the best of my ability but need to be sure before I pull the trigger.

Thanks for the help

A:Motherboard fried, is this board compatible?


Well, no. The product addresses I followed show the Intel board is socket 478, while the Asrock is an LGA775. So. best guess is it will take your video card, but you'd have to spring for a processor.
You could also consider Matx size boards as they usually fit into Atx cases.
I don't know if it's worth it to directly replace your 875 board, but I do understand limited finances. The ASRock board does accept 184 pin DDR and AGP graphics, the only addition would be a new CPU. With another board you might have to buy 4 things, (CPU, board, RAM, and Video Card).

So I recently had my main computer crash and break to the point I need a new computer so I figured I'd make it worth it this time.

Here's the deal: (add the www to see it)

Everything on there seems decent but I am curious about the board itself. Would the Intel Desktop Board DP55WB Motherboard be good for gaming, which I wish to use my computer mainly for. I have at most a 700 dollar budget and this seems like a nice deal for it. I plan on putting a Geforce GTX 580 graphics card in it as soon as I get the money as a little side note if it matters.

I'd suggest looking at the same chipset, but in either Gigabyte or Asus brands. Intel boards are fine, as much as it goes, but the BIOS is very limited as to configuration for different memory, and overclocking options. Intel really markets it's boards as mainstream items, intended for average users and businesses, they're not really aimed at the enthusiast.

The feature set can vary widely from board to board, and you should have a look at these pages to see which board has the capabilities you need;

You're probably laughing, as I doubt you get anything other than a very mediocre motherboard.  I've read so many criticisms of Dell, their customer service, their poor parts quality, that I don't know if this machine is of the quality I would like.  
The only thing I could find by calling Dell is that the board is PROBABLY (though they are not sure, which seems really shoddy),  is probably an INTEL LYNX . Z87., but is branded "Dell"
Also, doing a Google search on XPS 8700 motherboard, Tom's Hardware says it is the following:

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.

Both are part of the chipset functionality. The physical IDE though is the connector where the 40/80 pin IDE cable from the drives connects too, its about 2 inches long with 40 pins.

Your hard drives may not not work properly or at all.

It's an odd question, more of a homework question than a practical/useful real life question.

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 ...

I have a customer who brought in a HP TouchSmart Envy (Model #M6-K015dx). The laptop was not powering on after Fluffy chewed up his cord. This customer spliced the wires without using electrical tape to protect them from eachother. After replacing the external power supply, no power. After replacing the charging port itself (which I discovered had the center pin connector from the original power supply broken off inside it), still no power. Tried disconnecting the internal battery and plugging it in, still no power (even the amber charge light doesn't come on).  I'm thinking a dead system board. Maybe Fluffy managed to fry the board or the owner managed to fry it by splicing the wires of his original power supply without taping. If it is a dead system board, is it worth replacing on this model or should I just tell the customer he is SOL? 

A:Fried system board perhaps?

Depends on your labor charge. The system board is going to be around $150. I have actually replaced one on that same model fairly recently. You gotta get at least $100 to do it, so the cost to the customer is over $250. A like kind new laptop is probably $700 or so? I like to let the customer make the call.

Thank you for taking the time to read this message.
It has been a few years now since I have built my own system.
I do not think the old days of FDISk exist anymore, I could be wrong.

I am thinking of building another system, this Pentium 4 3.00GHz system is getting a little tired.

I have a hardrive that is filled with a lot of cool stuff. My question is :
If I build a new system Mobo/RAM/Video/ etc. will my hardrive bomb out on me and not work with the new system ?
It has been a while and I am getting a little rusty with the new stuff.
Thank you for your time and any information will be appreciated.


A:New Mother Board and System

I do a lot of upgrades and new builds. What size is your old HD? Is it SATA? Smallest HD installed here in SA is now 160GB and SATA is the option.

What I do as basic now is install 160 GB system HD, backed up by a 250GB min data drive for Movies/Music/Data etc.

If you are serious about upgrade that's gonna last you another 5 years or so and handle all the desirable stuff that makes a computer worth owning, why not go Core Duo min 2.3 GHz rather than single core?

Put your old HD into semi-retirement and annexe it as another optional "slave" drive for accessing your cool stuff. You'll need to have the installation discs for your OS and programs for the new drive.

One trick I often do is an image backup of the old hard drive and do a restore onto the new drive. There's a lot of ducking and diving to set it up, but the benefits are often a nice way of moving house and keeping the furniture to come with.

I always check to keep the MOBO's old/new chipsets in the family, eg. VIA on old ... VIA on new, so I get minimum upsets on sound/video driver compatibility. New MOBO will come with install disc anyway.

When the system fires up and boots into XP I do a check disk that sorts out any loose ends on the reboot.

I see you are a regular here for problem solving so I am sure you are well capable of climbing in and giving yourself a worthwhile upgrade to drive around with the some of the newer models LOL.
And just for fun you could safely check your old hard drive (switched to master with the new one safely unplugged from power and IDE strap to se if it boots up (ahh... the old faithful as it used to be... yeah )

Rebuilds are fun and very rewarding, like pimping ya ride.

Yours is a CTO system so which motherboard you have will depend on the hardware which was installed, and that was optional at the time of purchase so the model number does not tell us. In your case, the processor is soldered right on the system board as is the video chip so if we know the processor and the Windows version we can figure out which motherboard was originally installed.  See page 19-20 here: Your service Manual For example if you have the i7 Quad Core and Windows 8 standard, and Intel video only it is this board: Intel Quad Core HM87 i7-4710HQ (2.50 GHz SC turbo up to 3.50 GHz) processor (1600- MHz, 6.0 MB L3 cache, 47 W) UMA memory, and the Windows 8 Standard operating system 773128-501 You can also just remove the old board before ordering and the part number is printed on it usually by the memory slots. If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

I have an old Gateway P5-133 computer with an Evergreen MX-Pro 200 cpu upgrade on an American Megatrends system board.
I was in the process of upgrading it with a larger hard drive, WinME, a couple of USB ports, potentially more RAM etc. and was experiencing intermittent episodes of it not booting up. My new machine's monitor, which I used while working on this old POS, was saying there is no video signal coming from the old computer. A new video adapter produced the same message, so I am assuming the system board croaked. It did boot fine following the installation of the new HD and ME.
What would be a suitable replacement if you would be so kind as to enlighten me? I can return the PCI Video and USB adapters but not the Maxtor 80GB Ultra ATA/133 drive and ME.

A:Replacement System Board


Welcome to TSG! As far as a replacement board, you are probably wasting your time. My suggestion would be to keep the video you bought, the hard drive and the floppy. The rest is very outdated. Your board is a socket 5 board with no real replacement out there. The case and power supply will be of no use on a newer board (probably an AT form factor). The evergreen chip will only fit a socket 5 board and you can go much much faster with a low end $30 duron processor. The memory is probably 70ns dram and will not be able to be used in a newer board. Not really much you can save. Your choices are to look at used computer shops for an old socket 5 board or to shell out a couple of bucks for a bare bones system.

Many thanks, Phil

A:Need system board for Satellite Pro M40

It is a user to user forum here so I think nobody has a motherboard for sale.

As you said, you can get a motherboard from eBay or an ASP.
I think there is no other way.

A:HELP! System Board Issue?

I think you`re probably correct in thinking this is a problem with the system board. See HERE.

If that is indeed the case, then you only have two choices. 1: Get the laptop repaired. This could be quite expensive and it`s up to you whether you feel it`s worth spending money on.

2: Buy a new laptop.

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

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 ...

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 ?

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.

I need to enable pci card video adapters and disable the onboard graphics adapter in my system BIOS, trouble is, I do not know where to locate the BIOS on my computer !

I have a Dell Dimension L866r running win. XP (neither home nor Prof.) using an Intel onboard graphics card. Im trying to install a Radeon 9250 pci card that i want to use.

I would be fine now if not for the fact that every 3 (and I counted !!!) Boot-ups windows fails to start and i have o plug my moniter back into the onboard slot and boot up in safe mode then restart the comp and plug the moniter back into my Radeon card. I would also like to know (if this is not solved by enabling it in the BIOS) how i would get the splash screen and the XP load up screen on my Radeon.

Hello, I want to upgrade my 8560w (dual) system board (with cpu i7 2620M and 2 RAM slots) to a quadcore system board with 4 RAM slots and a quadcore i7. Is it possible from a technical point view? or is there some components that remain outside the system board and do not allow to make such an upgrade ? The manual mix all possible configurations together and does not precisely say the possible upgrades starting from a specific configuration.. Many thanks in advance, Yassine

A:system board upgrade 8560w

The system boards are a drop in replacement for each other. This is the one you want: For use with quad-core processors in all countries except China and Ukraine 652638-001 You will also obviously need a Quad Core processor. You can move all the add-ons over from the old board to the new. Memory, video card, wireless, display cable, etc. Even the processor heatsink is part of the video card cooling system. It is the same on dual core and quad core boards.  This is no easy task, by the way. There are lots of connecting daughterboards and subassemblies.  Your Service Manual System board on eBay If you can do the work yourself, it is $115 for the board and then about $200 for the CPU: $315 might be a working economic proposition on a $2000+ laptop. If you were paying me to do it I would not touch it for less than about $3-400 in labor. Looks like an all-day job. The Manual is not designed for upgraders. It is made for technicians who remove and replace like-kind parts only. Officially, there are no upgrades, it is a bit of a gray art. If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

hi Im new around here so sorry if i posted in the wrong area But here s the story i bought a laptop about months ago Its been working just fine Then weeks ago all of a Having laptop system issues...maybe board? sudden i turn it on and i get to the login screen and i start seeing lines across it and then it flickers Im unable to do anything i cant reboot cant move the mouse cant even put the computer in hybernation mode I have to wait for the battery to die for it to shut off I tried a few other times and i got the same results So after calling HP a million times i sent it in and Having laptop issues...maybe system board? today i got it back on the invoice it says repaired but then when i turn it on its still doing the same stuff im pretty ticked off at em so im about to call em up and chew em out does anyone know what could be causing this If its something i can do myself ill do that instead of sending it back again and going through the pain in the Thanks nbsp

A:Having laptop issues...maybe system board?

Try a test first.

Do you have a desktop? If so, plug your desktop monitor into your laptop and then turn it on. If it works fine then it is your laptop monitor. Some people that I went to college with had the same problem as you have, only got lines showing on the monitor (but their's happened after their warranty ran out). The IT department at our school told them it was the monitor. Usually some could get it working if they pressed the sides of the laptop monitor. Just an idea, but I would definitely try the test first and see what you get. If it works send it back and tell them you want a new laptop or a refund. At this point I wouldn't even want them to replace the monitor.

Hope this helps.

I have a Dell XPS 710 system running Windows XP. I am having issues with connection via dial up modem to a bulletin board system (BBS) using hyperterminal. I sometimes (very rarely) can actually connect and transmit data through this BBS, but most of the time it either doesn't connect or it does connect by I get gibberish in the hyperterminal window. I have a Conexant D850 56K V.92 DFVc modem that works properly for everything but this one bulletin board system. When I contact the other party they tell me that I must use a "Z modem" in order to connect to their BBS. I can't find any documentation anywhere that tells me whether or not my modem is a Z modem. Are all recently manufactured modems Z modems? I have tried playing around with port speed, emulation, buffers, etc. but nothing seems to help. Does anyone have any information on this problem?
