Deskpro EN P555 /10 UK - Wireless PCI Card Causes PC not to Boot

After adding the PCI card into a Deskpro P555 the system does not boot.

Take the card out and the system boots O.K.! Have tried all slots and the same problem occurs.

I have tried the card in another Compaq box and it works. I suspect the BIOS may be out of date 08/08/1999 version but on the HP site it's difficult to decide what the correct updated version should be as they seam to just roll out a fix at a time.

The P555 box is running XP with SP2 and is fully up to date.

The PCI card is a generic 801.11b and g version at 56kb.

 

Please help

    After installing a Linksys wireless card (WMP54GS) the computer would not reboot. It is stuck on the Compaq screen. The F10 and F12 keys do not respond. If I remove the card, the computer reboots normally. Any help would be grateful.

It might not be compatible with your system.  If it will boot up without it and it works in another system, well it's ovious to me.

Resource Conflicts errors for PCI in Slot 01


hey carl - first thing - laptop or desk top - if desk top (tower) remove all slotted cards and boot system - when it boots completely to home screen. shut down and insert 1 card at a time until you recieve you nasty screen. or boot into safe mode f10 or12 get in and disable all your cards -windows system- control panel - then turn on one by one doing a reboot - when you do find the conflicting card you should be able to figure which card or cards they conflict to - you will have to change the resource allocations on probable 2 or 3 cards to allow all to work - there all lots of sites that will explain this better - hope this helped

  1. 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x16 (PCIEX16)
    * For optimum performance, if only one PCI Express graphics card is to be installed, be sure to install it in the PCIEX16 slot.
  2. 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x8 (PCIEX8)
    * The PCIEX8 slot shares bandwidth with the PCIEX16 slot. When the PCIEX8 slot is populated, the PCIEX16 slot will operate at up to x8 mode.
  3. 3 x PCI Express x1 slots
    (All PCI Express slots conform to PCI Express 2.0 standard.)
  4. 2 x PCI slots

I have quite a few d530-SFF systems. They have the ''standard PCI'' slot ''carrier'' that plugs into 1 of the 3 PCI slots on the M/B and has 2 full-size PCI slots. I installed a PNY Nvidia GeForce 8400GS...


I checked the specs on the video card thinking it must be PCI-e and not old style PCI but in fact there is an old style PCI meant for just what you are trying to do. The problem is the memory at 512meg plus the GPU put your power requirements at 300w and I bet you have at best 185w in those units so they won't even start and you won't be able to cram the bigger power supply in there. Go with a card that has lower specs and 64 - 128 ram and you should be ok. Just check the power req. JC

This card freezes the system


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Two possibilities:
  • IRQ conflict - try installing the TV card in another slot or switch the other cards. Normally, the PCI slot right after the AGP or video card is shared. Preferable location would be where there are no immediate cards already installed right next to the TV card;
  • hardware fault - only solution is to replace the card.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

PCI cards don't function


as been have ssen in picture and specs of your mainboard you have a integratd vga vard and a agp slot. so solution may be this

Problem with an deskpro pci graphic card


  1. with this age of computer it is still quite possible that the motherboard itself has a jumper that needs to be properly arranged to disable the onboard video.

No video output on either video out ports. Please help I was in the process of doing an adaware scan and playing solitaire while it was running and PC hung. ctrl-alt-del did'nt do anything, no mouse, no...


You mentioned you placed "another" PCI-E card into PCIEX16_2 slot.
You need to remove the video card from the PCIEX16_1 slot first & try the second video card in PCIEX16_1 slot. Page 2-4 in manual.
Boot the system & see if you have video. If yes than the other PCI-E video card has an issue.
Just adding a second card will not boot.
You do want to replace the video in slot 1. This way you do not need to make any changes in you're bios or add the additional power (Which is required to run both at the same time). (Kind of hard to get into the bios when there is no video display).

Luck!

Computer will not boot to desktop


1. Unplug the SATA drive and see if you get a desktop then.
2. If so, then go to hardware/device and look for PCI sata card.
3. If it is listed, check the details, copy down and post here.
4. If it is not listed, see if it is listed under computer management/hardware/devices or in the "problem device" or "conflicts" tabs. Post any mention here.
5. While I wait for your reply/you wait for me to catch it, you should also try switching the card to another PCI slot. Sometimes, with new technology added to older boards, the slot ID is important.
