Update motherboard on a DC7700 Sff


First of all, sorry if this is in the wrong place. IM new to the forum stuff. Also, sorry if this has already been answered.

So I'm wanting to upgrade my dc7700 sff as much as possible. Up yet, I upgraded the GPU, RAM disk and windows, but I would like to upgrade the motherboard. From what people have told me, it is impossible to update the motherboard, but I would like some other opinions before I spend money I havnt really on a new PC.

Here is a complete list of my specs (on the top of my head):

160 GB Sata HARD drive


ATI Radeon X 1300 Pro GPU

Intel (R) Core (TM) 2 CPU 6400 @ 2.13 GHz 2.13 GHz

If you need more info please let me know and thanks for the help!



If you want another opinion, then I agree with everyone who said that we can't do.

Dc7800 SFF dc7900 SFF and the Elite SFF 8000-8300 have a redesigned cards mothers and where, so that they do not coincide in your model.

And if you are referring to a classic motherboard you can buy from a manufacturer of motherboard (ASUS, Gigabyte, etc.), which can be done either.

  • Compaq dc7700 sff: motherboards latest include the compaq dc7700 sff case?

    I want to use the case of an old dc7700 sff, but the layout of the Panel back looks like it is the inverse of all the motherboards I've found. Is there any motherboards that support DDR3 RAM and have at least three connectors SATA (SATA 3 preference) that will be adapted to this case (PCI ports on the left instead of right of ports)?


    Unfortunately, there is not.

    The dc7700 was the last model that used the case that has also been used d530, dc7100, dc7600.

    When the dc7800 came out, they used a completely different case, which was also used on the dc7900.

    Then the case was changed again when the 8xxx models Elite have been introduced.

    The first business office of HP in this class that came with sata ports 3 was the 8200 Elite SFF/CMT.

  • Problems of updating HP dc7700 SFF NIC driver

    Hi all!

    I have a HP dc7700 SFF desktop I have been working to rebuild. I restored it to out of State of the box with the built-in HP restore partition, put the OS Win XP Pro SP2. The Integrated NIC is a processor Intel 82566 DM. The default driver is version (as dated 19/07/2006) and works very well at speeds of 1 GB. The problem is that when I upgrade the driver to version (dated as of 07/03/2012) using the latest ProWin32.exe installer available on the Intel site, the NETWORK adapter will connect is no longer at a speed of 1 Gb and will connect to 100 MB. I know that the machine has network connectivity and seems to be very well until I do the update of the NETWORK adapter driver. Starting after the rendering of the office, State system for the network connection status bar icon indicates that it is connected to 1 GB for a moment, then it shows as disconnected, then reconnected shows, but only 100 MB. I tried to uninstall and reinstall the package of pilot several times with no luck. I also tried the official HP package from the downloads dc7700 (SP51788) page and that brought no result. I can restore the r in car to the 2006 version and the NETWORK card will reconnect at a speed of 1 Gb again.

    I'm thinking / hoping I can't be the only person who is having this same problem? Any help would be tremendously appreciated. If I can provide any additional information, please let me know. Thank you!

    Why not just use the driver of 2006 if it works well? Newer isn't always better, especially when it comes to drivers.

  • DC7700 Small Form Factor: BIOS of HP DC7700 SFF

    I have a DC7700 sff desktop that was running Windows 10 with a glitch. With each operating system installed (LInux or Windows), I saw an error memory 4 intermittent beep. I have reinstalled the memory, replaced the modules, and nothing seemed to help. Food seems to be good and I was able to use the machine with two additional hard drives attached to another hard drive cloning.

    To try to solve the problem, I tried to upgrade to version 3.05 using the method of updating the F10 BIOS setup menu. The system has reached 70% and then didn't update. Now, it does not start. I found a method online for the resettlement of the BIOS, but all forums seem to have old non-working links to the updates to the BIOS. The description of the BIOS flashing utility indicates that it is to change the splash screen. Can someone tell me please to the correct location for the latter. BIN files? Thank you!


    4 beeps is a power supply issue.  5 beeps is a memory problem.

    Business support pages are missing a lot of pilots.  HP is aware of the problem, but I don't know how long it's going to be to fix it.

    Given that your BIOS is v1.01, you need to follow the progression of xx 1.  3.05 was for vPro models this is why flash BIOS probably did not work.

    I have compressed upwards and attached files you need an old thread that I have helped someone else with below.

    It will bring your BIOS to v1.16, who was the final version.

  • DC7700 SFF BIOS support

    My father has just bought a PC HP Compaq DC7700 SFF (Small Form Factor) used and refurbished and we get an error whenever the computer places.  It reads "BIOS ME Extension stopped Module.  I did some research on Google, and it seems that the error indicates that the BIOS and the BIOS Extension ME are out of sync, which means that their versions do not match.  We are a bit surprised, it was not addressed prior to packaging for resale upward, but nevertheless we are here.  The computer came with Windows 7 Home Premum 64 - Bit.  It is the source of the problems.  Everything I read says to use a BACK program called "FlashBin" to Flash the BIOS with the latest version.  Whenever we try to run the program, it errors saying incompatile architecture (he wants to x 86).  We tried other things is manually creating a BOOT partition on a USB Flash drive and try to run the program to start BACK, but it does not, saying no found BOOTMGR or something.  Another option I found is that the BIOS has a setting called something like "Flash BIOS update" and asked where to find the file. CD-ROM or USB.  When we put on the USB flash utility, BIOS indicates the key USB is corrupted or damaged.  This also happens when we just updated BIOS. BIN file on the USB key with nothing else.

    We are really lost here.  As I said, this is a factory refurbished PC and we would really like to get this annoying error message to go outside every time we start.  Can someone help me please?  Thank you!


    You can read some of the posts offered on reset the cmos on your PC.

    Reset the cmos works the same on the dc7700.


    If you want to try the update the ME firmware suggestions, you must use the files to download on the dc7700 under section BIOS support page and I wouldn't update the firmware if you have to do in Windows for the same reason that you would not run an update of the BIOS under Windows.

    I hope that the reset cmos will work for you.

    I have never had this problem on any of my dc7xxx as PC, if unfortunately I won't be able to help you with specific measures to be taken regarding the update the firmware.

  • DC7700 SFF: PCI Simple Communications Controller

    You need this driver.

  • Can not find the network work dc7700 SFF driver

    I recently reinstalled Windows XP Pro on a dc7700 SFF machine and while the XP installation went without a hitch I can't install an ethernet driver.

    I tried to use all the 5 drivers from this page without success.

    I did some quick research and it doesn't seem to be a wide spread question.

    Windows detects hardware in the device as "ethernet controller" Manager without a driver installed.

    Running the Intel and Broadcom driver installs guest messages "no card detected Intel/Broadcom.

    Any other ideas? The machine is out of warranty since 2010.


    In my view, it has the Intel card and for some reason any HP driver Intel doesn't work.

    Use it to Intel, and you should be good to go. First download listed is for XP 32 bit.

  • HP Compaq dc7700 SFF PC can be upgraded to support a 2.66 GHz Intel Core2Duo (E7300) processor?

    My HP Compaq dc7700 desktop PC small form factor is equipped with a processor replacement of Intel Core2Duo 2.66 GHz (E7300), Stepping/CPU ID 10676, but I now have a start-up error message: "1801 - Microcode patch error.»  Missing or not valid processor updated Microcode.  "Please contact Hewlett - Packard Company for a new firmware update to support the new processor Stepping.

    (The computer start in pressing 'F1', but performance deteriorated due to invalid processor Microcode Update).

    I sent to HP, but have yet to receive an answer.   (They may have bigger problems right now!)

    The HP documentation for the dc7700 is ambiguous about whether if an E7300 processor would be sustained.  In this regard, the documentation recommends against editing processors more than 95W, but the E7300 is only a 65W processor (exactly the same as the original processor E6300).

    I've updated the PC system BIOS (786E1, Rev 1.16, the most recent available on the HP relevant support Web page):

    http://h20000.www2.HP.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en & cc = us & prodNameId = 3232108 &...

    "(mais malheureusement, il semble que Rev 1.16 n'inclut pas une mise à jour de Microcode valide pour le processeur E7300)."

    It seems that I may need to wait and hope that HP will issue a valid and new Update Microcode for the E7300 dc7700 support page.  (With luck, the update of firmware would be included in an update of the BIOS which can be implemented through the windows, not via a legacy floppy!) 

    (I note that Intel provides an easy firmware update, but it is not easy for those who are running a Linux Enterprise operating system.  I am running Windows Vista Business 64-bit).

    This is my first post.  Thanks for all the tips on the problem that I outlined above.

    Thank you Paul and Frank,

    The evidence you presented against compatibility has begun to address substantial.

    Furthermore, it is probably not conclusive in itself, but Intel motherboards with a chipset Q965 (at least the names of the Council containing the string '965') also do not appear to support beyond E6700 processors...


    I'd be happy to call my request 'resolved' - has answered in the negative.   Thanks again and well done! to each of you.

    With gratitude,


  • Update BIOS to HP8100 Elite SFF

    Often when I restart, the HP logo appears, the system hangs.  Another time does work ' t mouse after a reboot, and I have to unplug the USB port and use a different port. I thought that an update of the bios can solve these problems.   However, I am not clear when I go to the HP support network. It gives two options for the Bios 786 H 1 upgrade. From v1.04 to v1.05 and other v1.09 for v1.13. I V1.05 on my computor, does that mean it is up-to-date, or can I switch to V1.13? OS: Windows 7 64-bit sp1Windows 7 64 bit sp1

    I don't have a 8100 Elite so can only reference the docs from HP

    BIOS version 1.13 is the latest available for your 8100 Elite. If you look at the history of revisions for this release, you'll notice that it exposes all the fixes and improvements (normally) that have occurred since the first version.

    Curiously, on the Review tab history of 1.13, it shows nothing before v1.08 but this version may not be the initial relase. Earlier versions of the bios are (and only 1.02 is actually documented as initial version in the release notes). I suspect that the reason is simply a change in HP/web documentation. Maybe it's because HP has simply changed the layout of the web page in the "release history" tab to include the actual corrections and improvements for each version (at the time the v1.05-> update 1.08 took place) and rather that fix HP old bios version documents/pages to reflect a new way of presenting history, HP has simply created a new branch of the document and ignored the old versions (with no notes to clarify the question)... But really, who knows why he is documented in two different ways...

    The important thing is that bios v1.13 clearly indicates it is compatible with your elite 8100 sff and corrects a post blocking problem when certain hardware is plugged into a usb port. As you post hang questions, it is best to upgrade to the latest version of bios 1.13. Just take note that with the 1.13 update, he not do it back as mentioned in the release notes...

    And if the bios does not have the grip of the post, then you may have other problems. First try update bios v1.13

    I want to update my card mother p6610f so that I can install a processor AMD 8350 what changes are what I should do and what motherboards do you suggest?

    Here are the specifications of your HP Pavilion p6610f desktop computer and its card mother Μatx-RS880-Alvorix (Alvorix). Based on this information, you will need to buy a hat from motherboard AM3 + supports the processor AMD FX-8350, install a new power supply and buy a new copy of Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. Your Windows installation factory will become non-genuine and your HP recovery disks will stop working. I really do not recommended that you try to upgrade your p6610f by going down this road.
