I have a HP Pavilion Elite i7 Desktop w Windows 7 and I want to add a 3 TB hard. I can?

I have an i7 HP Pavilion Elite Desktop w 2 year, Windows 7 and I want to add a 3 TB hard.  Can I add a 3 TB hard (probably known as the Segate Barracuda XT 3 TB HD) as a secondary disk without changes.  If this is not the case, what should I do?

Short answer is not really. You need UEFI BIOS to do, and your system did not come with it. You could add it, but only 2.2 to be visible as a single drive. Using utilities... etc. of the manufacturer of the HARD drive, you could partition to see the rest, but as hard disks get bigger, the BIOS must change to adapt. They changed, but still yours is the older BIOS inherited, and there is no way to change it to a UEFI version.

Sorry

    Hello:

    If you post them details of the device string ID for each device in the Details tab in XP, I can send you the link for the drivers.

    For now, I can send pilots based on the material in the manual, and if your PC has different hardware, so I could waste your time and mine.

    Always install the first chipset driver:

    http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=20019&ProdId=2842&lang=eng&OSVersion=Windows%20XP * & DownloadType=.

    This should be your integrated graphics driver:

    http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=18774&lang=eng&OSVersion=Windows%20XP%20Professional * & DownloadType=.

    Audio: Accept the agreement. Download and install the 3rd driver on the list.

  • Running 4 monitors 1920 x 1200 on a Pavilion Elite I7 desktop PC (a double graphics - GTS 250 cards)

    Update (November 14, 2011): there is a happy ending at the bottom of this thread. In a Word, I needed to upgrade my 700W power and install a ~ XFX HD 6870 (AMD/ATI) $ 200 video card, connect 2 monitors to 6870's connectors 2 mini DisplayPort and connect the other 2 monitors to 6870's DVI connectors.

    In the original post, I went to get a second GTS 250 but I was able to do it with a single card.

    Original message:

    I have already noticed that my system (HP Pavilion Elite e9180f desktop PC) supports dual Nvidia GTS 250 in the thread next where I'm looking for advice for upgrading my system to 4 monitors:

    http://h30434.www3.HP.com/T5/desktop-monitors-and-video/how-do-I-upgrade-my-Pavilion-to-4-monitors/t...

    I need to buy a second card Nvidia GTS 250, but they are hard to find.

    The 250 GTS that came with the PC has 1 GB or RAM on it. I've only been able to find a 250 GTS with 512 MB of RAM above. Both cards will co-exist on my system if I can run 4 monitors?

    I'm tempted to just bite the bullet and order 2 new cards as the GTS 250 that I find can take up to two weeks to get.

    Can anyone recommend a modern replacement model for the GTS 250 (1 GB RAM) I can buy 2 and then installed in my machine (Elite e9180f) with a minimum of hassle?

    I ordered (and received) a new PSU POWER 750 watt and 3 additional monitors to 24 "(et un stand)."

    Thank you

    Because I'm a spread for the penalty, I went ahead and ordered the XFX HD 6870 and returned the XFX HD 6850.

    Only after you have installed the 6870 I realized this video card requires 2 PCI express power connectors. Of course, my stock PSU only has a PCI express slot so I went down to Staples and bought a power supply 700W (a RetailPlus PS700W). I installed myself (without the help of a technician that I had seen what the technician had to do when I hired one to try to replace the stock power supply with a Corsair 750W) and it worked. It was last Thursday and the machine works since then.

    The 3 HP ZR24w monitors I ordered came with a regular DisplayPort cable but I needed 2 Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable. I have ordered them to my place of local parts (OEM Express) and they came today.

    I plugged praying them, and then they played.

    So to get 4 monitors running a single card, I had to put my diet to 700 watts, install a XFX HD 6870 (it's a Radeon ATI/AMD with 2 x connectors DVI, an HDMI connector and mini 2 DisplayPort connectors) and order 3 HP ZR24w monitors. 2 monitors should be connected via the adapter mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort Cables and the other 2 are connected via DVI.

    From what I can tell, HD 68 x series video cards can drive only 2 DVI monitors at a time and if you need at least 2 aswell able DisplayPort monitors.

  • HP pavilion elite m9500y desktop: power HP pavilion elite m9500y

    Hello

    I have a HP pavilion elite m9500y.

    Here is the link for the specification.

    http://h20564.www2.HP.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docid=c01616194

    Suddenlty, it starts with black screen.

    After the filming of the power, I can't hear any sound out of the computer.

    My keyboard does not work. So I can't access my pc.

    I checked the memory cards and replace the motherboard battery.

    Nothing happened.

    So, I guess that the power supply is the problem.

    I wonder what food I buy.

    It requres 350W psu.  I'm not sure that it is acceptable to replace with power supply higher than W, such as 450W or 500W.

    So, here are my questions.

    1. What is wrong with my computer?

    2. If the power supply is the problem, should I replace 350W psu or W higher for the future?

    3. If I want to up grade my pc in the future, what would be the best option?

    I look forward to hearing your advice.

    With the case open and observing the CPU fan and projector, try the suggested PSU convenience store.  What is going on? If you decide to replace the power supply, I would suggest the Corsair CX600W. The system will build only what suits him, and you will have POWER supply that is quieter and more effective.  If no upgrade (GPU) is already planned, the Corsair CX500 is for sale.

  • I have a HP Pavilion Elite m9280f PC, I replaced the case for a larger, having connection problems

    Tomahawk, welcome to the forum.

    This is the page for Specifications of the motherboard of the computer.  You should be able to enlarge the diagram of the motherboard to locate most of the connections.  The only place you may have a problem is with the power button connector.  Some cases are not compatible with HP moterboards.

    Please let us know if this solved your problem or not.

  • Pavilion Elite HPE-180 t, windows 7 64 bit started to stop the sleep mode.

    Pavilion Elite HPE-180 t, windows 7 64 bit began to stop in the past few weeks.  It seems to happen from the sleep mode.  I leave the computer for more than 20 minutes, and when I come back, it is turned off.  When I start again, I have an error message and be able to start in safe mode.  I start in normal mode and I get an error "windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" without solution.  I also see an action center say error - consider sending additional information about a problem with the ATI display driver (graphics card is ATI Radeon HD5450 1 GB).  When I click for the solution, says that this solution could not be downloaded.  I've updated my drivers.  I haven't added a new hardware or software.

    Thanks HardBeatZ (HP).

    I did as you suggested and I had to uninstall several times because the device picked up previous ATI vs the generic drivers.  In any case it still stop with the blue screen of death when waking from sleep mode.   Then I went back and installed the latest graphics driver from the HP site for my system. I still had a few stops.

    Then I went through all my devices and checked for latest drivers.  All said that the best version is already installed.  Then I noticed that my HP bt500 bluetooth USB 2.0 adapter had only a driver available for windows 7 32 bit (I have installed 64-bit).  I used a keyboard and bluetooth mouse.   So I unplugged the adapter and have resorted to the USB keyboard and mouse and closures of blue screen stopped.  It seems that the network card was originally wake up from its sleep.  I also disabled the reactivation of LAN in the properties of the network adapter device.
