XW6600 box MOD not video

I'll try to make this short.

I bought a new motherboard XW6600 with:

Two Xeon 5160

4 GB of RAM (and four others I bought later)

A XW8600 PSU I have with a modified Extender I've done (plan I did below).

Two Seidon Cooler Master 120 v with an adapter by hand.

A 650 GTX

It lights up (fans and all work apparently ), RAM and processors heat up, but I get nothing on the screen. In addition, I don't know if the MB will beep or not because I do not know the speaker is going.

Technical manual troubleshooting pages does not help us either.

Any ideas? The only thing 'wrong' that remains is the pins on the fans, who do not have the second tachomether, as were fans of the original, but I don't think it's really important.

Help, please.

Thank you in advance.

Do a search in this forum for "pinout" and you will find details on the special pins that are used in the harness to the connector before the xw6400.  Those who are very similar to the pinout for the xw6600 and xw8600 details.

That should help with the issue of speaker wire...

The wiring for the fans matter.  Processor for the xw6400 coolers have a jumper wire to pin (ground) to pin 5, but those for the xw6600s have no such rider.  Those who have a set of 4 wire, then one empty 5th pin site.  You can see if you look on eBay at the xw6400 versus xw6600 cooler ends of connector.  Cut the wire to the fan of xw6400 makes the equivalent of a xw6600 fan.  Fans of HP workstation I work with are controlled PWM and the following sequence of 1-4, + 12vDC, sense rpm of the engine to the motherboard, and control signals the motherboard PWM motor circuit.  One of these PWM fans will see rise in RPM if you bring the butterfly wire PWM and just give 12v.  Most of us run fans always at the lowest global setting in the BIOS... for large hot projects, some of us will be ramp their place in the BIOS for the duration of that, then back down the lowest.  I use some bottom of Noctua 4 son and cards ultra low resistance noise my xw6600 dropout fan (ULNA) chipset and memory of the fan RPM (LNA) because the planned values are too high, in my experience.

With 80 watt processors, you don't hit demand for the motherboard for a 'double height' heatsink / fan that can be integrated with the xw6600s despite the existence only in room for those in the xw8600 (which has a thicker casing).  No xw6600 listed processors have a TDP max beyond 80 watts, but some for the xw8600 do, and motherboard of the xw8600 wants to see the wiring that comes from a processor double height double fan cooler if a processor with TDP max 120W or is in place.  Things get a little complicated.

I have several xw6400s running of two E5160s (dual core) and I use both of them, if the motherboard cannot run the fastest quadcores for this workstation (E5345s; SLAEJ sSpec code is the latest version).  But you have a motherboard xw6600 , not a xw6400 one.

These E5160s will not work on the xw6600.  My recommendation for this most recent motherboard is two processors image E5450, sSpec SLBBM (the newest, once again).  If you are running programs that are eager to base that you can run two hearts faster clock speed.  Who all are listed in the latest QuickSpecs, attached.  Two SLBBMs will cost you around $85,00 off eBay these days.

Always run the latest processor walk because they are of a more recent design of Intel and cost more off eBay in general.  I've never had a xw6600 not to execute what I wanted as long as the processor was in the latest QuickSpecs and I was using the latest BIOS.  This is in contrast with the xw6400 (that question is posted on the forum here, where some cards mothers xw6400 does not have the E5345s and some).

Be sure to always run the latest version of the BIOS, because there the latest HP patches and the latest "firmware" list that determines which processors can operate in a HP workstation.  Your E5160s are not in the list of firmware xw6600s and does not work.  I tried to get around this rule, a good number of times where both directions and always failed.  Everything simply because of the chipsets on a motherboard HP 'should' accept a processor does not mean that the motherboard will be.  Microcode rule above has not yet been proven wrong.  From my experience if you put a processor unlisted in then BIOS will stop beyond that you currently hold.

You can go down slower processors for the double xw6600 list eBay market very good heart, and I put out extras.  Start with one of those, then later for two SLBBMs when you get up things and race walk, with BIOS updated.  You end up with a near equivalent Z620 middle level, and this is my preferred approach budget currently.  I add an Intel SATA Gnraton II (3Gbps) 160 or 300 GB series 320 SSD as my boot drive, W7Pro64 and a '2 x 2' USB3.0-oriented HP TI card in the slot PCIe x 16 lower, and I kept 2 k with virtually the same user experience.  I have access to the Z620s to work for comparison and they are great workstations when running the latest BIOS and drivers, but I am very happy with the xw6600 inflated upwards.  In addition, it is a good project.

Keep us... These coolers look nice.  Maybe you can harvest the fans off the original HP heat sinks and use them.  Have at least one of these fans tuned for your first start for each correct processor.  The motherboard gives the installed memory/processors and the fans present and makes decisions based on this info he sees.  You can usurp the motherboard by some tricks, however, as giving it a CPU fan, he wants to see.

  • Drop-down menus does not open. Click right box will not appear.


    Yesterday, I was working on the Wix site. I noticed that when I tried to do a right click to copy and paste text box never showed up. I realized then, on other sites, in the drop down menus would not open (as the ones where you select your State, etc.). I can't turn on the bar menu at the top of Firefox with the ALT key, but when I click Tools or anything else, the box does not fall down. Same thing for my bookmarks and menu of frequently used buttons. My right click works fine when I'm not online. I really like to use Firefox and hope that there is a better solution than to switch to a different browser. I use Firefox at work and it's there.

    Please let me know if you need more information.

    Try Firefox Safe mode to see if the problem goes away. Firefox Safe mode is a troubleshooting mode that disables certain parameters, disables most Add-ons (extensions and themes).

    If Firefox is open, you can restart Firefox Safe mode in the Help menu:

    • In Firefox 29,0 and above, click on the menu button

      click Help

      then select restart with disabled modules.

    • In previous versions of Firefox, click on the Firefox button in the upper left of the Firefox window and click help (or click on help in the Menu bar, if you do not have a Firefox button) and click on restart with disabled modules.

    If Firefox is not running, you can start Firefox in Mode safe mode as follows:

    • On Windows: Hold down the SHIFT key when you open the desktop Firefox or shortcut in the start menu.
    • On Mac: Hold the option key during the startup of Firefox.
    • On Linux: Exit Firefox, go to your Terminal and run firefox-safe-mode
      (you may need to specify the installation path of Firefox for example/usr/lib/firefox)

    When the Firefox Safe Mode window appears, select "start mode safe."

    If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to understand that one. Please follow the section Troubleshooting extensions, themes and problems of hardware acceleration to resolve common Firefox problems to find the cause.

    To exit safe mode of Firefox, simply close Firefox and wait a few seconds before you open Firefox for normal use again.

  • Flashing black rectangles on the normal display mode (not full screen)

    In the last two weeks, I downloaded the latest version of Firefox. Now when I open a browser, black flashing boxes appear whenever my cursor moves and the screen is unusable because of this. The only solution I have found so far is to use the mode setting full-screen. Then, the screen is stable and the black boxes are not anywhere on the page. Anyone has a suggestion on how to fix flashing black boxes?

    Please see images added to this posted question. Thank you!!!

  • scheck selection boxes are not displayed in the window options, nor does the scroll bar - why?

    Firefox is very erratic running. Scrolling is choppy at best. Usually, rocking it and descend is too far or no movement at all.
    Also, the scroll bar is black and there is no visible grab buttons to go up or down. Up and down arrows at the top of the bar are also blacked out.
    Selection boxes do not appear in tools, Options. Therefore, it is very difficult to make the custom choices.
    There is a significant delay after clicking 'OK', 'Cancel' or 'Help' buttons-, in fact, other buttons.
    I have 2 Add-ons 'All-in-one Side Bar' and 'Last Pass', no more.

    If I open firefox in safe mode all these problems disappear. Everything moves smoothly and check boxes appear.

    Have you tried to change the default Firefox theme, if you are using another theme?

    Have you tried disabling hardware acceleration?

    All this is in the article link I posted.

    Find out what steps to follow when the problem occurs in Mode without failure of Firefox, according to your original question and follow the links in the next section of the article.

    How can I do this swicth not managed again?

    Thank you

    Change the mode switch to the 'managed' to 'mode not supported' clears the configuration of the switch. Change mode "managed" "managed" mode enables graphic management interface and sets the system to the factory settings. There is no way to back up the configuration of the switch.

    Always a good idea to be in the current version of the firmware.


    To restore the default switch, press the button Mode for two or three seconds and then release. It should then restart on its own, do not manually power cycle it.

    Web Interface method

    Open a Web browser and connect to the IP address of the switch management.

    Type the appropriate user name and password, and then click OK.

    In the left navigation, click the plus sign to expand the system, file management, and then restore the default settings.

    Click OK in the confirmation dialog box.

    In the left navigation, click on the plus sign to expand the system, general, and then click Reset.

    Click Reset, and then click OK in the confirmation dialog box.

    Reset to factory CLI

    Reboot the switch, the switch is reset, look for the line to appear that says Autoboot in 2 seconds - press RETURN or Esc to abort and enter prom. and when that happens, press or or to access the start menu.

    In the start menu, choose [2] file Flash Erase by pressing on <2>and then confirm by pressing

  • Import dialog box does not open

    I just upgraded to 5 Lightroom in Lightroom 3, and the import dialog box will not open. I can select file-> Import Photos and videos... and the menu option flashes as he was selected, but nothing else happens. Any ideas? I'm on OS X Mavericks.

    I figured this out. Based on the below stack trace it seems that Lightroom has tried and failed to create the directory ~ / Movies, and that failure has stopped in the logon dialog box. In my case, ~/Movies is a symbolic link to a directory that lives on an external drive, which was set up in time. I can work around the problem is the disc with my films of editing on it or removing the symbolic link. It is not ideal (I can't quite fit on a disc, and I have other software that really wants movies ~/Movies and not anywhere else) but it works.

  • Open Directory dialog box does not work in FM 10 if client API is not built with 10 FDK


    We have a FrameMaker API client that we have maintained for more than 10 years, since before the FM 6.

    We just brought the code of FDK 7 to 9 FDK so that we can finally move 7 FM support and focus on FM 9 and 10 features. Almost all the code works fine, but we have problems in a function that uses F_ApiChooseFile in FV_ChooseOpenDir mode.

    We do nothing special in the code (I am aware that by passing a value into directory argument can cause the function returns without displaying the dialog box) and you use F_ApiChooseFile in its simplest form:

    IntT err;

    StringT stemp;

    ERR = F_ApiChooseFile (& stemp, (StringT) "Select the folder containing the files to be processed.", (StringT) "", (StringT) "", FV_ChooseOpenDir, (StringT) "");

    When we create our DLL using FDK 9 client and run it in FM 9, the directory chooser dialog box appears correctly and the user can select a directory.

    When the same DLL is running in FM 10, the dialog box does not appear and the function returns immediately with err =-1 and FA_errno no error reported (as if the user has clicked Cancel).

    If I recompile the DLL using FDK 10 dialog work in FM 10, so the problem seems to certainly be related to backward compatibility with a DLL built with an earlier version of FDK.

    Unfortunately, you cannot run a DLL of FDK in FM 9 10 and we do not want to distribute and maintain two different versions of our DLL to support 9 FM and FM 10 users.

    Is there a solution to this?

    This bug was introduced in FM10. Until FM9, FV_ChooseOpenDir was #defined as "3", while in FM10, it was changed to '4' (as part of the evolution of these sets to focus on the value of flag-based). What customers can do to overcome this, is to get the FM using 'FP_VersionMajor' version, and for versions before FM10, they can pass 3 'in FM10, as an argument, the argument will be 4'.

    We will ensure that we will honor the 3 and 4 as "FV_ChooseOpenDir" in the future, but until then, workaround above should work.

    Kind regards
