HP Pavilion Elite HPE 310-t: slave master HD with select cable

Original HD not was not so I added another WD blue for computer to clone original HD BIOS sees second HD but I can't designate master and slave as cloning said to software.   System doesn't see a second HD.  Here is the SATA HD.  I'm not sure if the PC has cable select function.  Boot HD on end connector and second HD on next connector on the cable. Please notify.  Thank you


Pretty fun little story about the SATA drives connected to a slick IDE, if you read it correctly.  More fun is the tidbit on "master slave and cable select'.»  I have this rate a red herring, scoring 10 for the op.

  • Pavilion Elite HPE-170 t - Wi - Fi adapter with antenna?

    I would like to connect to a desktop Pavilion Elite to a local network. The router is a Linksys EA3500 (802.11n technology). The distance between the router and the wireless adapter on the desktop will be about 30 feet with walls between the two.

    The office doesn't have an outdoor antenna. When I checked for network adapters, I found this: Realtek RTL8168 / 811D Family PCI - E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.20).

    I use the computer for HD, movies, not for games. Should I buy a Wi - Fi adapter? And if so, which one of these adapters Linksys would give me better performance?

  • How to add to my HP Pavilion Elite HPE-590uk Usb 3.0

    Hi does anyone know if I can improve my HP Pavilion Elite HPE-590uk for usb 3.0 and if so could you recommend a product that I could buy to do this.  Thanks in advance.

    One of them check it:


    This is to use a pci-e x 1 card. You have 2 these slots available. This will show you how do:


    See the section on the replacement of a card.

    Instead of plugging on the long black slot which is a video card plug into one of the slots black short. You have Windows 7 I think which means that you will need a driver, but that should come on a CD with the card. Will need you a power connector (molex) on the map, too.

    You can use a SATA-III HDD but the 785G chipset only supports SATA-II. You won't see any difference, and the SATA-III is backward compatible. You have a 300W power supply. You can put in a better and with a minimum 500 or 600 watt PSU, you can install any videocard, pcie 16 x which will be in good physical shape. In retail offices, there is simply not as much space as in a custom build Tower and best video cards these days are huge things two locations. Don't forget, it fits with room to spare, or you will have problems of air circulation.

  • HP Pavilion Elite HPE - 532 s: 'Secure Boot Configuration' not found?

    Hello support, I wanted to disable startup secure for my office.
    I have a pavilion Elite HPE - 532 s Bios 7.15 I followed the step of many posts, but I don't have it under the heading "security"?
    I am on window 10 64-bit UEFI.
    I wanted to disable, because I have a new GTX 960 graphics card and it stuck on the HP logo at startup all the time when I use the new card. !!

    I tried to disable the security slot, but no matter what I do I get a black screen for my card both old and new so I have to reset the bios settings.
    Help me please.

    Thanks for the additional information.

    Here is my diagnosis/notice:

    I don't think you'll be able to get the GTX 960 to work with this system.

    Why it won't work in the UEFI/GPT:

    It will not work in the UEFI [I think] 960 GTX is one card of UEFI and you must disable secure boot to make it work. Your BIOS is only "UEFI compatible" originally planned for Windows 7 [which does not support secure boot]. If you are unable to disable the secure startup, you can not use this card.

    Why it won't work in legacy/MBR:

    It won't work in legacy because it's a single card of UEFI.

    My suggestion:

    Return to the legacy/MBR and use a graphics card that has a dual BIOS BIOS/hybrid or one who supports in particular the Legacy BIOS as described in one of my previous posts.

    Some other things to consider:

    You PSU has enough power for this card? I think it takes a minimum of 400W PSU.

    You connect the auxiliary power connector?

    Have you tried to disable "Intergrated Graphics" in the BIOS [as appropriate]

    No, the GTX 950 requires UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard BIOS.  HP didn't start using UEFI until mid-October 2012.  There is no way to update the motherboard in the UEFI.  Latest video cards do not for UEFI were the GTX 660/670.  I suggest that you choose a manufacturer and contact their Technical Support to help them choose the best card for your system.

    You will also need to upgrade the power supply (PSU).  It is only 300W.  Most newer cards require at least 400W to work properly.  Although status map specifications at least 300 w, members reported that they had at least to 400W.

    750ti GTX requires BIOS version 8.xx.

    This card to initialize not due to lack of UEFI support in the BIOS.

    Discover the Nvidia 600 series graphics cards as they will run on a legacy PC BIOS. The 600 series cards can run on a PCIex16 Gen1 slot. I have not checked this.

    I've seen information indicating that some AMD manufacturers ship AMD cards with the ability to switch between legacy and UEFI BIOS.

    Check out it at Sapphire Tech.

    So these four cards do not work when it is combined with adequate food on a legacy BIOS PC with a PCIE x 16 Gen2 slot.

    The PC can have only one slot PCIex16 Gen1. The cards are not compatible in this case.

    You will need to check the prospective: graphics card power and the dimensions of upgrade to check both will fit your turn.  We must also find a graphics card that runs on a slot PCIex16 Gen1.

    See you soon!

  • Pavilion Elite HPE: Network adapter missing?

    Greetings. My Pavilion Elite HPE is about 2-3 years of age. Recently, he has crashed hard and does not work. I was able to reinstall Windows 7, but I lost all my data and programs. Now, the computer works, but cannot connect to the internet. HP said to contact Microsoft and Microsoft told to contact HP. Then Microsoft recalled and said tell HP computer model number and they can tell you which network card is necessary. Then I can download? Not sure if I need to hardware, software, drivers, etc.. Help, please!

    OK, try this. Apologies, I took a guess, but I didn't know that you don't have another PC in the House. If it wasn't that, I was hoping that you can upload to another PC and try the others. It must be one of these two (probably the first):

    Pretty sure that the second one is for your ethernet port. You want to install this one too, if you think you'll connect at any time directly to a router via the ethernet adapter.

  • Pavilion Elite HPE-570f: update Bios

    Pavilion Elite HPE-570f

    Prod. BV542AA #ABA

    Recently upgraded to Windows 10 (64 bit) to Windows 7.

    The Bios is older than 5 years. is it possible to upgrade?

    What I've read, HP uses modified BIOS, not those generally available on the motherboard manufacturers websites, even IF you can find your Board on the website of the Board manufacturer. The only "safe" to install BIOS would be those that HP show for download on their Web page to your computer, in your case this page is:


    and I don't see any update of the BIOS listed so far.  In my case, with my computer, they did an update that appeared shortly after my purchase.
