HP Compaq 7900 SFF PCI-E 2.1 Support?

I would like to ask if the Small Form Factor Professional PC HP Compaq 7900 supports the new 2.1 PCI Express interface? I have updated the Bios with the latest version, but still have doubts about this. I've read several times that these types of small format, older factor of work stations not updated to support the PCI 2.1 and because of this, the new Radeon 5XXX cards, for example the faithful 5450 doesn't work, overheating or breaking the motherboard.

Is there anyone who knows or who have used a HD 5450 or HD 6450 or the new Radeon cards in this small form factor pc?

Thank you


The dc7900 is PCIE x 16 version 2.0 by reference table 2.1 on page 2 and 3 of the technical reference manual.

  • DC 7900 SFF: Missing driver for DC 7900 SFF Windows XP pro SP3


    I already read this post: http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Compaq-Elite-Pro/DC7900-SFF-Drivers-for-XP-Professional/td...

    But unfortunately it does not solve my problem with a driver missing on the relocation of a Windows XP Pro SP3 with the DC 7900 SFF.

    The missing pilot is linked to:

    PCI \VEN_8086&DEV_ 3 A 02 & SUBSYS_3034103C & REV_02

    Everything else seems fine.

    If someone could give me some information or links to the correct drivers, would be great

  • HP dc 7900 sff memory update

    Hello, this week the team here helped me to update my BIOS for my Compaq HP DC 7900 SFF. I have four available memory slots, and the computer's specifications say that it can have a total of 16 GB of memory. I could not find the specifications of the type of memory should I use.

    Can anyone here point me in the right direction for a memory upgrade?

    Thank you in advance,



    Thank you as always, I paid 90 million dollars for the dc 7900 with 4 GB of ram, burner light scribe, two core 8400 processor. 250 GB hard drive, only really bad thing is that each of the modules 4 memory are a different speed, and it comes up as unknown. I think that this computer can only run as fast as the module of memory of slowese. I'll probably get 4 GB memory and keep it for now, it works great and I like it better than my gateway 560 Gr. I am running windows 7 ultra 64-bit. and I'm happy. I think that if I change the memory, it will peform better year and the next update to the hp 8200. They go for about $300 used on e - bay, and hp/compaq has always been my brand.

  • The fan runs super fast. HP Compaq dc5100 SFF

    These days HP Compaq dc5100 SFF - or fans have aired the apparently fast fan speed.

    Was full of dust (to the point of blocking the absorption on the front fan)

    Used an AIR CAN blow the dust out with the lid open.  We also had a blip of brief power in the last days - caused a stop down.  And we have updated some business software.  Has been restarted.

    We have 3 more of the same model which are OK

    Thanks for any help

    The SFF dc5100 is notorious for bad capacitors on the motherboard.  I had one where the fan ran at top speed all the time.  There was a swollen capacitor located at the end of the PCI 1 connector.  It seems C469.  It's a 6.3 volt 1000uF cap.  I replaced the capacitor and that fixes the problem.  To keep the computer cool lengthens the service life of capacitors.  It is wise of the dust periodically in order to cooling air flows.  How always, once a capacitor going bad, the only solution is to replace it.  A burned capacitor will be inflated. The flat top normally will be curved upwards and, possibly, a leak of a crispy Brown material.

  • How can I find a graphics driver for my hp compaq dc7100 sff

    My computer is a Hp compaq dc7100 sff, is to install the operating system is windows 7 32 bit


    Please follow these instructions and see if the video driver installed.

    Your integrated graphics (GMA 900) is not capable of Windows 7.

    I can send you the link for a pilot who has to work a lot better, but you never have Aero.

    Here is the link to the driver.

    http://h20000.www2.HP.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en & CC = US & swItem = ob-47264-1 & mode = 4 & IDX = 0 & prodTypeId = 12454 & prodSeriesId = 3352967

    You need run the package. It will extract the drivers and it will then give you an error operating system not supported.

    Close the error window and then manually install the driver by clicking on the video controller in Device Manager. Click the driver tab click on update driver. Select the "Browse my computer for the software method.

    Navigate to: C:\SWSetup\sp34749, make sure that the include subfolders is selected and the driver should install.

    It should be much better than what you have now.


  • Noise of the extraordinary fan on HP Compaq dc5000 SFF

    I used the same HP Compaq dc5000 SFF to work for several years. It has an eccentricity that can be infuriating: if I'm the scene work processor, the fan goes into overdrive and in a few moments, I feel like I'm in a 757 taxiing on the runway at JFK airport.

    I wonder if this problem may have been treated by a BIOS upgrade. (To my knowledge the BIOS has never been modernized.) In all cases, these machines are very common in my office and I have yet to visit a person using one that is familiar with the level of db fan I meet several times a week.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you.


    Here is the link to the BIOS for your PC release notes:

    http://h20000.www2.HP.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en & cc = us & prodTypeId = 12454 & prodSeriesId = 403745 & swItem = ir-63382-1 & prodNameId = 403747 & swEnvOID = 1093 & swLang = 13 & taskId = 135 & mode = 5

    None seem to approach a noisy fan.

    I open the case (after such normal precautions that unplug the power cord, etc.) and look for the dust clogging the fins of the heatsink and fan blades. If there is dust, it is most likely the culprit causing the fan spinning upwards.  Use a can of compressed air to clean the dust from your PC case.

    If it's clean, then I guess the thermal interface material between the Processor heatsink the heatsink of surface has dried and you do not have a good heat transfer between the processor and the heat sink (your processor is overheating, but not thermal breakpoint).

    The repair is to remove the heat sink. Remove the old thermal paste from the heatsink and processor apply new thermal paste and go back.

  • HP Compaq d530 SFF DIMMs do not recognize. Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit - BIOS version 02.44

    Hello HP community!

    I recently got a HP Compaq d530 SFF of the company, where I had my work experience.

    Fortunately, I took their offer and took the PC at home, everything was going well until I bought myself some new DIMM from ebuyer.com.

    I again for a fact, the computer must DDR 333 MHz, PC2700 and it must be in DIMM format, so I went and bought 3x1Go modules. A few days later they arrived and I have them inserted in the computer, ensuring that two DIMMs was in blue locations and others (I wanted to keep a 256 MB module to) in the black sites.

    I have re-inserted power cable and tried to boot the PC, he showed me a BIOS message, showing that the amount of memory has changed, since the last boot. Once the configuration is presented, he acknowledged only the 256 MB module. I then turned off the computer, and then remove the 256 MB module, to see what would happen. So, I restarted the PC, and it gave me an error (not shown) tone. To which I then tried (needles) each DIMM different to see if one of them was vice. They are all gave me the same error tone. Since then, I've been running Windows Vista Home Premium, with 1 GB (4x256MB DIMM).

    Maybe someone has a suggestion how to fix this?

    I've already updated the version of the BIOS at 02.44 (later I could find).

    Thanks in advance!

    Yours sincerely Simon Cahill


    Not all memory is the same, even when picking PC2700. Did you buy non ECC?

    The only suggestion I can offer would be to install the latest driver ethernet directly from BCM and see if it works.

    I think you need the first driver on the list for 32 bit.


    You will need to manually install the driver for the adapter ethernet BCM in the Device Manager, as the file contains only the driver files and no setup.exe file.

    The info that I could find, X 1550 can develop 27W power, which is very good for your PC.

    So, if you have one, all about the pose that will fit in your case, then it should work without problem.

    Why not opt for a more modern card and get a Radeon HD 6450?

    This is the map used in the 8200 Elite SFF that has the same power 240W.

    He would use the subject of the same power - or even less.

    Just make sure that you get a low profile with the extra-thin bracket card.
