Workstation z800 CPU installation Problem


Hi there,


I got three HP Z800 Workstation-Bodys and I tried to install two Xeon x5650 in each of them.

unfortunately they do not start, i don´t get any picture and no error-beeps too.

Only about 8 seconds the Fans of the body go to full speed.

I have another Z800 running fine and i tested the Cpu´s and Ram there.

It is unlikely that all tree Mainboards are out of order. Maybe the Bios has to be updated?

But I don´t get into it to update. Has anybode an idea?


best regards,

There are many flavors:


Are they the same with the existing machine ? I can't move your post to other area, you may post under business machines to get proper help.
