SOURCE: Hi Franklin. Wondering if it is possible to install a 3 TB drive into an EX-470 HP Server? Will it recognize the entire drive or is there a limit on drive size?

there is no size limit on hard drive space a server can see.

I got a new computer, and I want to be able to access my HP MediaSmart Server LX195, but I can't seem to find a Windows 7 64-bit driver for this. Where can I find the driver?

How exactly are you looking to access your server PC. Do you just want to be able to transfer files to and from it or are you looking to remotely control its desktop?

Shuts down 2 seconds after powering on.

Don't know this exact server. But my guess it is either a heat issue or a power supply issue. Turn it on with the cover off. Check the CPU fan(s). If your CPU is getting too hot the system might be shutting down power to save it. If everything seems cool it might be the power supply I have seen it when the power supply fan goes out on the power supply and the caps inside start to sizzle. Voltage ramps up and fail.
Hope this helps.
Also, Something that has tripped me in the past. Make sure the power button is not stuck. I had a server that the power button stuck down and it would turn itself off. Took me 2 CPU fans and a power supply to figure that out. LOL

I can't open HP MediaSmart Webcam

what PC?
what OS? stated,
nobody can help you , unless the whole system is stated,
in details.
guess :1:
it wont work as supposed to because you have added other non HP software related to CAM, and they are in conflict.
remove that conflicting software
or do a HP OS refresh. using HP restore.

1 and 4 fan problem

This might happen when it detects a non-functioning fan (to preserve all other components).
We've had the same problem on one of our server, one fan wouldn't start (needed more current to start it)

We had to replace the motherboard on server to make it work, since this one got it power from the MB.
A temporarily fix was: Pop fan 4 out, give it a push so it rotated and quickly insert it before it stopped, hope it won't be stopping until you receive a new motherboard.
