Replace motherboard xl508av

Product Name: HP 8200 Elite XL508AV
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I plugged a USB 3.0 express card into the wrong socket on motherboard. Now runs very slowly. Seems to have screwed up the video. I think I need to replace motherboard. How do I find correct one. I tried the ctrl+alt+s, no results.

Tried to run system health report but got error. Timed out.

It's running ok I guess, but still slow. Takes 14 min to boot. Fixed the freezing problem. Useable now.

Re: Replace motherboard xl508av

From: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c02781555#N10013

 

your computer has 1 DisplayPort video port and 1 VGA video port.

This implies that you have "onboard" video.

 

Can you try an "add-in" PCI-E video card, in one of the PCI-E x16 slots:

 

• 3 full-height PCI
• 1 full-height PCIe x1
2 full-height PCIe x16

 

First, try the PCI-E slot that wa NOT used to connect that USB card.

 

This will disable the "onboard" video, and may bypass your problem, at a lower cost than replacing the motherboard.

Re: Replace motherboard xl508av

 It seems to work a little better now. I still get some funny slow downs in some areas. I can live with this.

How do I find out what the info is on the motherboard if I decide to replace it?

Re: Replace motherboard xl508av

See the manuals: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-compaq-8200-elite-microtower-pc/5037940/model/5037942/manual...

 

to see if they contain the HP part-number.

Then, see:  http://PartSurfer.hp.com

to see if it still can be purchased -- probably for the same price as you paid when you bought the whole computer.

The philosophy is "if you NEED it, and can pay TOP-DOLLAR for it, we have it".

Since you already have clicked "accept answer", that link is no longer available to you.

Click on 'Options', and you'll see the option to "unmark".  Do it.

Then, you will gain the ability to "accept answer" on some other message.

Re: Replace motherboard xl508av

Are you clicking the 'Options' that is associated with your own 'Reply'?

You should see 'Accept as solution', but it is "greyed-out".

What other values are displayed under that "pull-down" ?
