    I am doing the same exact upgrade to my hp x4000, as well - and I am getting the same error message. One more bit of info, the processor is recognized as a 2.4ghz xeon instead of a 2.8.

I have a lexmark 2580, I keep getting 'unsupported cartridge' message, and one of the lights on the printer is constantly blinking. I have brand new lexmark cartidges installed.


Problem Unsupported Cartridge; Error: "Unsupported cartridge"; Incompatible cartridge error; Incompatible cartridge in the printer; Cartridge not recognized Solution What you will see
When a cartridge is inserted, an Unsupported Cartridge error message is displayed on the printer operator panel.
Affected printers
This issue affects printers sold exclusively in the Dixon Store Group (DSG) in Europe and in Circuit City in the U.S. NOTE: The cartridges for these printers are sold exclusively in these stores or on their websites.
Explanation
The printers listed in the table below are compatible with a #2 cartridge (in single cartridge printers) or a combination of #2 and #3 cartridges (in two-cartridge printers). They do not support the standard color 28A 35, and Mono 29A 34 ink cartridges. If the standard color 28A 35 or Mono 29A 34 ink cartridges are used in these printers, they will fail to print and the printer will post an Unsupported Cartridge error message.
Solution
Lexmark recommends using either a #2 cartridge for single-cartridge printers or a combination of #2 and #3 cartridges in two-cartridge printers.

Upgrade Intellistation Z Pro 6121 w11 to 64bit Xeon Processors


It helps if you give the right specification - the W11 is the 6221, not the non-existent 6121.
You have 2 x 2.4 Xeon in a Socket 604 package. The only CPUs these could be are the Tigerton - it certainly does support 64-bit operation, as well as VT.
You have little choice in processors - Tulsa, Tigerton and Dunnington.
The Tigerton is a little ripper! 2 x 4MB on-die cache, 1066 internal FSB, wide voltage range and low power consumption (80W).
http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=30779
You have a 4 processor 64-bit box - if it isn't poweful enough for you (and I can't see why - I run 50 concurrent VM users on less), you can only go to the 2.93 Tigerton as an upgrade. The other CPUs have more horsepower, less torque!
Don't get hung up on processor speed - for 64-bit big cache rules.

What will happen if the intel xeon processor will not operate properly


The symptoms of a malfunctioning CPU vary. It may have random lockups, blue screens, or restarts. But the most common result is the system will either not start at all or will have an error during it's Power On Self Test (POST).

Adding a second processor to my 2600 server


I hope that you fixed your problem without troubles by now, but if you still have not, I can help. I added a second xeon processor to my Dell PowerEdge 2600 a couple of years ago.
Lay the server on its left side then loosen the three thumbscrews on the right front side and "slap" the cover off backwards.
You should have by now identified the current processor by running cpuid software that I think comes from Intel's website in order to buy an identical cpu. That was the hardest part, finding an identical one still for sale. If I remember the Poweredge 2600 could only use xeon processors with only up to 512 kb of cache or someother small amount and are not that available still new in the box.
You also have to get two identical voltage regulator modules (vrm). I was not able to get a second one for some reason and just bought two identical ones specifically for the xeon processors that I was using. Be sure to do your homework on this. MATCHING cpu's and MATCHING vrm's.
That's it. Each processor has two cores and you should see all four after you boot.
Another thing to think about would be setting the processor afinity to run your most intensive process to all four cores while only letting most applications to only use the first core.
I hope this helps if you haven't already had any success.

Problem with cs2


Hi, According to Adobe, the minimum requirement for Adobe Photoshop CS2 are: Intel Xeon, Xeon Dual, Intel Centrino, or Pentium III or 4 processor Microsoft Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4, or Windows XP with Service Pack 1 or 2 320MB of RAM (384MB recommended) 650MB of available hard-disk space 1,024x768 monitor resolution with 16-bit video card CD-ROM drive Internet or phone connection required for product activation With the 384MB recommended memory and Windows will use say 120mb, it might be better to have 512 of memory. Of course the lower your processor speed, the slower the software. With the minimum of 650MB of available hard-disk space, you would still need a pretty big swap file say 1024mb if with 512 memory. It is also to your advantage if you constantly defrag your HD. Adobe does not specify a video card requirement but you would probably be better off with a 128 or a 256 mb. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back with details of your motherboard/PC or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
