Question about HP Workstation X1100 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I bought a pair of HP x1100 Workstations in December for the kids. One of them stopped booting. It made a modem noise and then beeps twice. After reading some forums, I installed a new power supply and the computer started working again for 4 weeks. Now it is doing the same thing. Any ideas?

Make sure you have enough power (wall outlet, Surge Protector (MUST HAVE A GOOD ONE)
And Double Check that the Power Cable is 3-pronged, NOT one that someone pulled the ground pin off of!!! THATS BAD!!!

Or you just got a bad Power Cable,

Also Make sure you have a BIG power supply (I recommend at least 450 watt PS!

Check this all as if it was a checklist.....so far I believe your motherboard is just fine......the problem is somewhere between your Outlet, Power Cable, and Surge Protector (I really hope you are running it on one.....Never run any computer or Valuable components without one!)

I only mention that because some people don't realize the importance of surge protectors)

HP Pavilion ze2308wm laptop won't boot up


It could be the memory modules (RAM). Get the information from those RAM sticks (manufacturer) and replace them with new ones to see if that solves the issue, if not then maybe the hard drive, and if it's neither of those, I hate to say it, but it sounds like a bad motherboard :(

Symantec antivirus scheduled updates time resetting to default


It sounds like you need to be using managed mode for the workstation installations. When you do this, the server will contact the workstations when there is a new update, and not the other way around. You wont have to worry about when it checks if that is the case.

Remove the sticks and put them back again, make sure you hear the "click", the click means that the sticks are where they should be in possion,¨

Btw, you bought sticks that are suported by your Mobo i asume?

Wont boot up


You could be using the wrong type of memory. Check your mobo specs to see what your mobo is compatible with.
