Workstation XW4300: xw4300 will not work with the recommended graphics card (Nvidia Quadro FX 3400)

I installed a graphics card hoping to update my computer.  The Nvidia Quadro FX 3400 was the highest assigned

graphics card recommended for the workstation xw4300 system HP specifications page.  My system

has a 460W power supply and I connected the cable 6-pin on the map and the map pins in the PCIe x 16 slot where

the old card was.

When I turned on the machine, I don't have even get a bios message or welcome screen.  All black.  But on all 10

seconds, the power would cycle off and then come back.  HP says that this map is supposed to work with my machine!

This card appears, making it non-functional.

Any ideas?

I ended up going with the Nvidia Quadro FX 1400 card.  He is listed as 75W and the map of 'medium' recommended for this xw4300 system.  I paid 10 dollars for it on eBay and it works great.  Do not use the Quadro FX 3400 map even if it is recommended by HP for this machine.  Food can't support.

A witch hunt.  Equipment old and new software don't always play nice.  My machine has a new installation of Windows 7 Pro 64 bit on it, and running Windows Experience Index gives me the blue screen of death.  I put a meter on the power during the test problems... No..  It's a kind of driver incompatibility.  Win 7 says that the driver is the last, but he chokes on the

test the index.  Funny irony is that I ran other tests which include benchmarking 3D rendering and nothing, but the Microsoft Windows Experience Index test stifles this card.  How about you do not run the Microsoft test to improve my Windows experience.  :/  Go figure.

This card is older hardware, and because of that I don't have hope than Nvidia or Microsoft to make Windows experience test runs correctly with win7 64 OS.  Sounds like HP.

Here's the kudo: the guy on eBay who I bought the card quickly refunded my money when he learned about the Blue error screen of death in Windows performance index test, so I did a free card.  I'll send her money

Back to him.  I've never met anyone so accommodating.  These companies could take a lesson from that on what customer service means.  That's how you get regular customers.

  • Pavilion p6 - 2120t: Windows will not start with the new graphics card

    Installed a Zotac GT 740 profile down in my desktop PC graphics card HP Pavilion p6 - 2120t and now the PC does not start.

    HP Pavilion p6 - 2120t CTO desktop PC

    Intel Pentium CPU [email protected]
    4.0 GB RAM
    Intel HD Graphics Driver version Family: dated 27/01/2011
    Motherboard: IPISB-CU (Carmel2) (1 open PCI Express 16 expansion slot pins)

    BIOS to Version 7.18

    Windows 7 Home premium 64-bit w/service pack 1
    Two monitors (VGA, 1 digital port 1)

    Before installing the new graphics card, I replaced the power supply original 300w with a 400w power supply.

    For starters, I disabled the onboard graphics in Device Manager. Then, I opened the case and installed the GT-740 in the open PCI Express slot. I made sure that the card was fully engaged in the slot.

    I plugged both monitors to their connections voted on the new map.

    When I tried to boot the PC, the digital monitor displays the screen HP (the one that indicates which key support to achieve the start menu) and then frozen. No other entries of key or mouse have been accepted.

    The PC then sounds 4 short beeps (about 10 seconds between each beep) and then a long beep before turning off the signal to the screen.

    Then, I removed the new graphics card on the PC that starts then. I have reactivated the original graphics drivers and the PC then worked normally.

    Tried the above process two more times with the same results.

    I then went into the start menu to look at the BIOS. The menu of the BIOS shows two options:

    > Sources of boot UEFI

    Windows Boot Manager

    > Sources of boot legacy

    ATAP I CD/DVD player


    Hard drive


    Network controller (Realtek PXE B06 D00)

    PC using UEFI Boot Manager Windows boots normally

    I have not tried Legacy Boot Sources because I don't know which one to choose.

    I went to the HP site and looked for an update to the newest BIOS, but updating them is a rev version 7.16 while my PC shows my BIOS to version 7.18

    I know that others have had a similar problem but I have not seen a solution that works for my PC.

    Any advice would be welcome.
    Thanks for your time.


    Your PC isn't spec'd to run Windows 7 using the Windows Boot Manager.  I expect to a UEFI-based graphics card likely to work on an HP PC that does not have a BIOS version 8.

    The below listed OEM HP, graphics cards should work in your PC using a normal non - UEFI W7 and W8 installation.

  • Satellite A110 - switch WiFi does not work with the new WiFi card

    I have a problem with my laptop Toshiba Satellite A110 - 178 (PSAB0E). I replaced the original Intel 3945abg with Intel Link 5100 WIFI card and on the new wifi hardware wifi card switch does not work.

    New wifi card is discovered and drivers to the correct job but when I try to search with the Intel Pro/Wireless software wifi networks I message to turn on hardware switch, but there light and not work. The old wifi card swich works OK - orange light is on. On the new map light is off and swich does not work.

    Do you have also enabled the WLAN functionality by pressing FN + F8?
    Check it!

  • Does not start with the new graphics card

    Hello. I have a P7-1058uk Pavilion Cleveland-GL8 motherboard with integrated graphics.

    I bought a new monitor that has resolution 2560 x 1440, equal the integrated graphics card can face if tried to to level with a Gigabyte GT630 card.

    When I start, I have now the chance to the blue HP screen but not more details. If I start with F10 or ESC key, I get a black screen instead. Whatever it is, I am asked to press ESC to enter in the start, but by pressing on the button has no effect and the computer just hangs. There is a cycle repeated very quiet click that sounds like the disk drive HARD trying to start then stop

    If I remove the graphics card and connect the monitor to the integrated graphics card then all's well again (but limited to the resolution 1920 x 1080).

    Perhaps foolishly, I assumed it was a problem with the residual power (300W) and not enough punch power to run the HARD drive. But who, after having upgraded to 650W it makes no difference. I also tried to download the NVidia drivers but it won't let me install because I can't get the computer to work without the graphics card and Nvidia install it because it cannot detect the hardware.

    Any ideas/help would be appreciated.


    You can have one of these motherboards that are not happy with NVIDIA graphics cards.

    This may sound a little weird, but it happens.

    The other possibility is that you have damaged your home x - 16 PCI Express by installing a map requiring more that the installed power supply has been able to provide.

    Kind regards


  • Stereo Bluetooth blackBerry Smartphones Plantronics Voyager 855 will not work with the curve 8330


    Finally got a blackberry case, it's the only thing sprint has that synchronizes with my mac.  I already love this phone in every way except one.

    My plantronics headset travel stereo bluetooth (with a2dp and avrcp profiles that correspond to the phone) does not work when you listen to the music/tv/video. He worked very well with my motorola and samsung phones, so I don't want to give it up.  Plantronics tells me that the device should work with this phone model. The whole is described on crackberry as compatible.  I can have conversations on the headset in stereo, but no matter what settings I have change / disconnect the battery / re-pair of headphones I still can't make it work. Is there a setting I can change in the phone other than encryption that will solve this problem? Sprint could not help me.   I hope you can, so I do not get this phone.

    I appreciate any instructions

    Thank you

    far ahead... a soon!

    Well, I love my blackberry even more now... In more recent versions of Pandora, Slacker, Radio Companion, etc., you can go into the options and select bluetooth or turn on bluetooth in the context menu.  This did not work very well in previous versions or did not even exist in Pandora.  I continued to try newer versions and now all three programs I tried to work reliable with bluetooth stereo.  So I left my blackberry on the other side of the gym until I realize he had disappeared and he has not yet cut.  Hoping soon too SprinTV updated!  Thank you for we hear on RIM HERE! AND still much faster than the iphone. Cheers!

    a. open the Device Manager by clicking the Start button, click on the Control Panel, clicking system and Maintenance, and then clicking Device Manager. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    (b) in Device Manager, look for the device and then double-click the device name.
