Z240 internal usb header and updated Maintenance & Service M...

Q: Z240 internal usb header and updated Maintenance & Service M...

It appears that newly shipping Z240 Tower workstations DO NOT have an internal USB header anymore? The System Board Overview graphic in the Maintenance & Service Guide (Oct 2015) shows #7 as a USB 2.0 internal header. However, the location where the header should be on the system board is actually a 1x6 pin header (P150) listed as "MEDIA". The other USB 2.0 Header, #5, is taken up as the front USB cable. So is there an updated manual that shows what is actually on the system board? The Z240 Tower QuickSpec is dated March 2016, so I'm hoping there is a newer manual out there somewhere. Any idea what the P150 MEDIA header is for? Is this for the old media card readers? I have the optional SD card reader, but that is attached to #8 which is the internal USB 3.0 header. Any way to attach deveices that need an internal USB 2.0 header?

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.)

Hi, I?d like to install a media card reader (e.g. HP 468494-005) into the shared internal/external 3.5" drive bay of my HP Z240 SFF workstation but it doesn't fit. It probably needs a carrier of some kind, because the casing is just a bit too wide and there are no holes for the standard screws. I couldn't find any instructions on the HP website. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi guys,

I built my own pc a few months ago and the case came with a single USB 3 port on the front but the motherboard I chose doesn't have any USB 3 headers. However it does have two USB 2 headers so I was wondering if I could use the adapter I've linked to at the bottom of the post to get the front USB port to work. I know that if it did work that it would operate at the slower USB 2 speed, not USB 3 but as long as I can use the port at all I'll be ok with it. So will it work? Any response will be welcome.


A:USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 internal header adapter

That wouldn't work mate, the 19-pin connector is to connect to a USB 3.0 header on the motherboard which yours doesn't have. If you need extra USB ports you could pick up a USB 3.0 PCI-e card.

hi , just got a pci usb expansion card . no instructions came with it .
got it mostly to connect an internal card reader i've ordered .
the pci card has an internal usb socket and a 5 pin header .
i will need to use the header as the card reader has 4 individual wires all labelled.
there is no labelling however on the header so i don't know which end to start with an which order to wire the 4 cables on to the 5 pins .

can someone advise me on this or is it just a matter of trial and error ?


A:how do i wire an internal 5 pin usb header ?

G'day Alan, try having a look at this.....
The lower diagram should address your problem.
Be careful some wires use different labels.
Usually if the lead is carefully laid on it's pins they will lay in order.
Avoid smoke!
Cheers, qldit.

I got a ilder motherboard not long ago and it's working great, the only thing is a 2x8 pin internal hdmi_header1 I found inside, the motherboard is an asus ipibl-la and no matter where I look I can't find a cable that fits, is it not in production? Has it ever been? Idk, it's located between the spdif2 and front usb3 under the bottom PCI port on the bottom of the motherboard, if you know anything about it please let me know.

A:Internal 15pin hdmi header?

If you go here :- and click on the + next to Internal Connectors it's called a One Intel high-definition Audio/Modem Link (2x8 HDMI connector). It's some sort of Audio connector rather than an HDMI video output and seems to be for sending high quality Audio through a modem.

Hey guys,

I have an internal firewire header (9 pin) on my ASUS board that is not working. How do I figure out if its a bad port or something else? There is nothing showing up in Device Manager. How do I troubleshoot it? How do I know if its dead? Is there a way to replace it if it is?

I also have firewire port onboard whcih is working fine--it just the header that's not working.

A:Maintenance and Service

Hi, Firstly i7 is an Intel CPU. You can't use Intel CPU's on AMD motherboard.Secondary, the AMD E1-6010 is soldered to the motherboard (it uses  socket FT3 (BGA 769). Therefore my answer is: No, you can't do anything about CPU. Regards.

Hello i would like to know why im crashing so often, literally i crash 4 or 5 times daily at random times, and i keep getting those BSOD's, but all this started when i updated to Win10 (I knew that updating at day 0 was a bad idea z.z )
I will leave the minidumps attached so you can analyze and hopefully tell me what is failing, but i already suspect a driver failing because no win10 support.

A:Getting lots of "Bad Pool Caller" and "Bad Pool Header" since i updated to Win10

Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum):'s what I got from the minidumps, there may be more info in the other reports that I requested in the above paragraph. From the minidumps, try uninstalling MalwareBytes.  It's mwac.sys driver appears to be the culprit in the memory dumps. Also, Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen both dtsoftbus01.sys and dtscsibus.sys blamed on several occasions).Please un-install the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration):  New link (15 Aug 2012): (pick the appropriate version for your system and select "Un-install" when you run it).Alternate link: procedure here: following is for informational purposes only.[font=lucida console]**************************Mon Aug  3 01:43:40.404 2015 (UTC - 4:00)**************************

I've attached the file, please let me know if any other info is required.

First off, I don't like vista and those poor souls that purchased a computer between the end of XP and the beginning of 7 I am sorry. Two of those souls belong to my parents who are constantly having issues of a slow computer, sticking screens, malware, long loads, etc. So my question is what are some simple software tools I can use to clean their computer and keep it in good maintenance whenever I get the call to go and looked at it.

I have them using NOD32 from eset, and I am going to take Antimalware with me on the trip. Anything else in general or special for vista?

A:What software Vista Maintenance and General Maintenance?

1) There is absolutely nothing wrong with Vista. It's a fine OS.
2) Nothing you should use to try to "clean" any system. A good av and either MalwareBytes or SuperAntiSpyware (and maybe SpywareBlaster) combined with smart computing is all you need.

Could someone help me out with this question. Is there a program that will run on your computer to check if Windows XP is in need of any critical updates or updated patches? By the way, not sure what patches mean. That will show you my computer IQ. If someone could assist me, it would be appreciated.


A:Program to check for critical updates and updated patches for Windows XP Service Pack

Hello Adam, Welcome to TSF!

If you go Start > Control Panel > Security Center > Automatic Updates > set the updates to Automatic (recommended) you should not have any problems obtaining updates (patches), because your system will do it for you in the background.

To check if you have missed any updates, go Start > All Programs > Windows Updates (It's located on the top left of the All Programs screen) > follow the on-screen prompts.

Try these two methods and post back with the results.

I have gone into Troubleshooting but there are no issues, I have installed all the updates and I have run all the diagnostic tools.

Hi, I'm getting hopelessly confused by the fact that I have changed my password online (Microsoft Account) but now when I log in on my PC it says wrong password and won't log me in automatically.
I have tried the tutorial here but it throws me off after I fill in the new password. Besides this is the wrong window to change the stored password for my PC.

I also found another window where I thought I had changed the stored password but it didn't work.

Q: Z240

Hi Team, We are trying to install win7 on Z240 but due to some issue the SSD does not gets detected we have also tried installing Win7 via CD/USB but still no luck can someone help me regarding this issue.


If secure boot is enabled in BIOS, try disabling it and enable legacy boot.Also in case you are using NVME SSD, then you may need to inject the corresponding driver

I am trying to setup my new HP Z240 workstation, but cannot get the graphics card to operate at any resolution above 1024 X 768. The graphics card is an NVIDIA QUADRO K620. It is connected to the monitor with a DVI-D Dual link cable. The monitor is an HP w2408. The monitor has two inputs (DVI and VGA). I have the VGA input connected to another HP computer with a NVIDIA GeForce GT 610 card (this computer/card/monitor displays at 1920 x1200). When I checked the adapter modes (using the list modes option), the best mode listed is 1024 x 768. The NVIDIA spec sheet lists the max resolution with DVI-I as 2560 x 1600 or 1920 x 1200. What can I do to get the max resolution from my monitor (1920 x 1200)?

Update.  Problem solved. When I realized that the monitor in DVI mode was not being recognized as PNP, it pointed to the monitor as the problem. Installed new monitor, everythng works as it should.

A:Updating Firmware for Z240

When you run HP service packs, they will expand and place their contents under an own directory within C:\swsetup.Specifically in your case, if you run sp74202.exe, you should see a new directory C:\swsetup\SP74202 has been created with the contents of the service pack within. Alternatively you can use 7-zip to peek inside the service pack exe without running it since the exe is a self extracting zip file that runs the installer once decompressed  In any case, a newer ME update exists here but i'd first apply the latest system firmware update available here. When looking at the HP service pack links above, it's good practice to selectively click each "Description", "Enhancements", "Installation Instructions" "Release Notes" "Fixes" and "Revision History" tabs and read the information (some of it is repetative but you'll soon learn where to focus your attension). The contents of these tabs contain important and relevant information on what has been improved, fixed, which system it's for, how to install the update, etc. And if a previously installed SP is not listed in the "revision history" tab, that release may have been pulled by HP due to some fauly behaviour or other issue! Pay particular attension to the prerequisits as in some instances firmware updates have to be stepped (that is you can't always simply apply the latest). And if you read such boaring stuff, the system firmware (BIOS) Installation Instructions tab would have given you a clue where the sp files are expanded to  Have you tried simply enter the command (as specified) via a command prompt window but changing directories to where the FWUpdLcl.exe file is located? Just keep in mind that sp74202 is the initial ME firmware release so nothing sould update  So best to apply the latest system firmware (BIOS), then the ME firmware, then maybe the latest ME software (under chipset drivers). Best to bookmark this page which lists all the downloads for your z240 Windows 10 64bit tower system so check it out periodically.

Hello, My company recently purchased some Z240 SFF workstations and put in aftermarket multi-media card readers in the 3.5" slot. The card reader uses the internal USB 3.0 header, so I had to unplug the USB 3.0 cable for the for the front usb ports in order to get it to work. The media card reader works just fine in Windows, however, I get a POST error message on startup: "Cable detection Error 41A- Front USB2 Not Connected. Front USB cable has been detached or unseatted from the motherboard. Press Enter to continue." Is there anyway to disable POST messages? I can't seem to find anything in the UEFI/BIOS to do this.

A:Z240 POST Message disable?

One of the HP engineers who has been very helpful to us here has recently posted on a related question, and he has access to the schematics and the internal design details of these workstations.  His post is on this thread,  HERE : Dan tells how to jumper the header to make it believe the cable is still connected, and it would not matter whether you jumpered at the motherboard end or the far plug end, as long as you got the correct pins/plug holes jumpered. Note his caution.... that seems to suggest that the pins on the motherboard are not as stout as the ones we are used to seeing.  A proper sized insulated wire jumper with a short segment of wire exposed at each end can be used as a jumper at the far plug end of a cable, rather than the little plastic jumpers we use at the motherboard pin end of thins.  If you carefully figure out the wire colors this should work. The wiring of such headers/cables within a HP workstation family are usually the same, and things can stay the same from one generation to another, in my experience.

Hi, I had a look inside and the Z Turbo drive appears to be connected to the motherboard (location 23 on the motherboard map in the manual) and not using a SATA port or any of the four main PCIe3 slots. Only one of the PCIe3 slots is being used and that is for the NVIDIA graphics card, and only one of the SATA ports is being used and that is for the Slim BluRay drive (connected to SATA3). That means there are 3 x SATA ports available, and 2 x 3.5" and 1 x 2.5" bays available, by the looks of it. My question is, is it possible to put 3 x HDD/SSD drives in it, i.e. 2 x 3.5" and 1 x 2.5"?

Download the file by clicking the "Download" or "Obtain Software" button and saving the file to a folder on your hard drive (make a note of the folder where the downloaded file is saved). 2. Double-click the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions. 3. Navigate to C:\SWSETUP\SP73487 and unzip "" to a USB key for a 64-bit installation. 4. Use the newly created driver installation media during operating system setup to install the drivers.  Once you copy the driver on another USB media, connect it with unit on which you are trying to install OS.  Click on Load Driver and navigate to USB and install the driver. Once the installation is complete, You will be able to access HDD and will be able to install OS.  I hope that answers your question.  I am an HP employee, the opinions expressed here are my personal opinions, not of HP. Make it easier for other people to find solutions, by marking my answer ?Accept as Solution? if it solves your problem. ***Click on "Thumbs up" button to the left side of my post to acknowledge the post ***

Hi all, I got a Z240 SFF workstation with a 512G HP Z Turbo Drive G2 intalled on M.2 slot as a boot drive. I recently add a 1.2T Intel 750 PCIe SSD on PCIe slot 4 for additional storage. However after the Intel 750 SSD was intalled, the computer began to shutdown automaticly after couple of minutes running. The issue will be fixed after remove the Intel 750 SSD. The system is running 64bit Win10, with Samsung NVMe Driver. The Intel 750 SSD can also be read and write when installed and Intel Data Center Tool shows that the SSD is healthy.

When running an SCCM 2012 R2 task sequence to install Windows 10 on a Z240, the network driver is working in Windows PE during the download and apply Windows image. I'm using Auto Apply Drivers step and after it's completed, the computer restarts into the Windows 10 OS, tries to set up the devices and then the task sequence fails because there is no network driver detected that it can use. I've tried to import multiple types of network drivers from both HP and Intel with no success. I've tried to specifically apply the Z240 driver package instead of using Auto Apply Drivers with no success. I've also tried to install a Windows 8.1 image instead and it still fails at the same point. I'm confused because it works fine in PE, but not after restarting and booting into the Windows OS.

I can't get new Z workstation to boot into WinPE on Windows x Windows x and Windows x with only and NVMe drive installed to the M slot on the MB I've tried plain OEM Media and WDS with WinPE with different drivers added to the boot wim file all no luck nbsp It seems there must be some sort of bug relating to the Samsung nbsp pro nbsp M nbsp NVMe GB drive I'm using When I leave this as the only drive CDRW the computer always hangs as soon as WinPE starts If I leave the Samsung NVMe drive installed and add another SATA drive such as a Samsung Pro SSD it behaves fine- WinPE then loads and I can see both drives nbsp I was able to install Windows nbsp on the NVMe drive and booted into Win as long as the SATA drive was present As soon as I removed the nbsp SATA drive nbsp and it starts loading windows it immediately hangs again nbsp It shouldn't be NVMe driver support as Windows WinPE has native windows when or booting Samsung... hangs Workstation WinPE Z240 NVMe support and has the same problem so it must be something else I suspect it's either something I have to turn off in the BIOS or some other BIOS UEFI bug nbsp Has anyone seen this before nbsp Thanks nbsp Edit Z has latest BIOS

Hi: Do you have the same issue with the same hardware ID? If not, please post the hardware ID for the HDA device that needs the driver. I only see W10 graphics driver for the nvidia graphics adapter.

Weird problem. Transferring between the two internal hard drives is very slow and some times does the bursts speeds. But if I try transferring from EITHER of the internal drives to an external drive they transfer at their recommended speeds.

Raptor SATA 36Gb - OS
Maxtor SATA 500Gb - Storage
External Maxtor SATA 500Gb - Backup (USB 2.0)

Any ideas?


A:Internal HDD transfer slow. Internal HDD to External fast.

What are the speeds?

I ordered a computer in I installed an internal hard drive and named it E C is the main drive D is the recovery partition and DVD/CD internal with Conflict hard player new internal An internal DVD CD player was included however I did not notice that it wasn't working until after installing the hard drive as E I tried to fix the DVD CD player and it seemed simple a wire was hanging out and just had to snap it into place When I did that the computer refused to load and was stuck on the HP startup screen for hours literally I disconnected the E internal hard drive and rebooted After a few minutes the computer loaded into Windows and the DVD CD player was now E and worked How can I keep the internal hard drive as E and still have a working DVD CD player How can I force Windows to use another letter for the DVD CD player instead of it automatically assigning it E and coming into conflict Conflict with internal DVD/CD player and new internal hard with the hard drive

So my 1 TB internal hard drive has less than 30 GB of space and I want to upgrade to a 2 TB internal so I can hold more of my games on it. How would I be able to transfer every single thing from the 1 TB to the 2 TB?

A:Help Upgrading 1 TB Internal to 2 TB Internal Hard Drive

Assuming this is for a desktop, you would plug in the new HDD into the sata port on your motherboard, amd make sure it is getting power from the PSU, and win7 should recognize it and mount it. You then make sure its has the NTFS file system and you can drag and drop from one drive to the other. Or use a program to copy over files like teracopy. I use teracopy because it keeps exact listing of what is being copied and exact info about size. Now as far as transferring games, I may be wrong but I think you would have to reinstall the game into the larger drive if you wanted to make use of the 2tb drive. I am not a big gamer so take my game advice with a bit of salt, I am simply trying my best to help you out

i'm about to purchase a new hard drive for my computer and i'm trying to decide if i should get a large internal HD (500gb) or if i should get a smaler capacity harddrive 250gb with an external drive. I use my computer mostly for music/video and was thinking of using the external drive to store those exclusively and use the internal drive for the OS, hence the wanting a smaller capacity drive as i can't find a use for a 500gb HD just for an os/ a few programs. I'm not a big gammer at all, but i do enjoy playing simulation games like The Sims 2and Startopia, which don't take up much space either. Currently i have 2x80GB drives, one with vista and my music and the other with videos. Guidance much appreciated.

I recently purchased a Studio 1558 laptop. The specs are below:
Processor: Intel (R) Core (TM) i7 CPU   Q 720 @ 1.60 GHZRAM: 6 GBSystem type: 64-bit operating systemATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470Sound - ATI High Definition Audio Device, IDT High Definition Audio CODECI have plugged in older Dell speakers that I used with my desktop. The sound works fine until I load a webpage, or load a folder etc and then sound will temporarily switch from my external speakers to my internal laptop speakers. This is quite annoying as it happens frequently and sometimes I blare my externals which can't be good if it keeps switching to my internals.
Can anyone recommend a fix? It would be greatly appreciated.

????? ????? ?????????? ??????????
Sorry for language mistakes ...
After my first laptop corrupted ,, i opened it and take its internal hard disk drive , then i put it inside HHD Portable ( which allow you to use the internal hard disk as external ), so that i used my old laptop hard disk as an external .
now i want to use it again as an internal hard disk in another laptop , but when installed it in the other laptop , the boot doesnt run normally , even " windows welcome" screen doesnt appear , and the following massage appears in the blank screen :
" A disk read error occurred. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart Error "
can you help me to use this hard drive again as an internal hard disk ???

A:turn back my internal HD again as an internal

A disk read error occurred. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart Error
The laptop cannot read the drive - either not fitted correctly or more likely the hard drive is corrupt.
Also when you get the laptop to read the drive the windows on the drive is licensed to the old laptop not the new one plus the drivers in winows will be for the old laptop not the new one.

I'm currently doing a yearly maintenance for my pc.
I saw quite a few process in my task manager but i'm not sure which i should end the process.
i'm afraid it might cause problem to my pc if i accidentally close it.

How do i post my task manager process here?

A:Pc Maintenance

Ending processes isn't really the best "maintenance" you could do, I think...

How about removing unneeded programs? Also, defrag and check your C: drive for errors.

To find out if a process is necessary for your computer, look up the filename on Google. BleepingComputer also has a Startup List and File Database.

Me personally i just use trim in Windows 10, i do not let software write and erase large files often, i use a HDD for this. Do not believe there is a need for these third party tweakers.

1. While searching how to delete selected restore points, I found only "Ccleaner" can do it, but when I run it, it shows only those created on 2015, and I have one Image restore dated 2014 which is not shown on the list and its not on the PC anymore, (it shows only in the system restore list)
A. How do I clean the 2014 entry, and
B. Since 2015 is going to end in a few days, will the 2015 entries disappear from the list, ?
2. I want to make a new full backup, but first I want to clean the old ones, shell I just delete them, they are too big to burn on a DVD disk.
Answers will be appreciated.


Hello Mordechai,

The tutorial below can help show you a few options that may help you to delete your restore points. If this is a System Image Restore Point, then OPTION FIVE below can show you how to delete those types.

We use Windows XP - Home Edition. My husband, children and myself all log on separately. When I run spybot or adaware to find & clean up spyware, must it be run under each separate user? Seems like I run it while I'm logged in, then I can log in as my husband and it still finds more items. I'm assuming it checks only certain files & subdirectories specific to the user you are logged in as? So does it require each person to log in and run spybot/adaware to completely clean up the computer?

A:Maintenance on XP

Running it under any account with full administrative privileges should check everything on the drive.
