Topic: WOL no longer working   Go to last post
Posted: Sunday, December 29, 2013 8:29:09 PM(UTC)

My Wake On Lan used to work fine. However, for the last two or three months, it's no longer working. I don't remember changing anything in the computer. When I checked, the NIC no longer lights when the computer is turned off. Any suggestion is much appreciated.

Topic: How to setup RAID in HP Z800?   Go to last post
Posted: Sunday, September 1, 2013 8:26:34 PM(UTC)

I tried creating a RAID by Ctrl+i in my HP Z800 but for some reason it does not show the full size. I have two 3TB hard drives (one HP brand and the other Seagate) and instead of 3TB shows up, it only show 746.5GB. Any suggestion why? I put in a 1.5TB Seagate in as well and this drive shows its full size fine. So, does this has something to do with 3TB size? HP support agent kept insisting that the hard drive is not HP certified for this model. I don't think this is the case though. Any suggestion is much appreciated.

Thanks for the response. For some reason I got it to work. I'm not sure why. However, trying to wake the computer over the Internet does not work. I got it turn on locally though. My guess is it may have to do with my Linksys E3000 router.

I have been following tutorials on Youtube like this one and I could not get my old Dell Precision 670 Workstation to wake on lan.I have also setup my Linksys E3000 router to accept a UDP port 9 with local IP address of My question is, according to the video in my link above, under the Advanced tab of the NIC configuration properties, I do not see the Wake and WOL options.

And here's what the youtube video shows:

Could this be the cause of why my WOL not working on my machine? I did configure this machine to have a static IP of on the NIC property as well as on the Linksys router. And by the way, I did enable the WOL in this computer's BIOS too. So, what else could I have missed? Any help/suggestion is much appreciated.

Does anyone know if the HP Z800 workstation is able to take the Intel

Xeon X5690 processor? If so, when buying this processor, what other

accessories should I be considering? I'm not buying it right not but I like to keep my eyes open in case the price come down to my level.

All you need is a splitter such as these:



Although, generally your video card is going to have two outputs.  Typically you'll have 2 outputs, one being DVI, and the other being one of these:  HDMI, VGA, DVI, Display port, and the mini versions of some of those as well.  It doesn't matter if you have 1 monitor using dvi, and 1 using vga, both will work simultaneously. 

None of those splitter works. I already got the Tripp Lite Model P564-001 and it didn't work. I already contacted Tripp Lite and they the only way is to have a video card that have dual output. The splitter only duplicates one monitor to the second. Again, I want "extended" mode not duplicate. Thus, my question in this thread is, can I use two video card with single monitor out for dual "extended" mode?

It would but there's really no purpose or need to have a dedicated graphics card for each monitor.
Even low end and integrated GPU's have multi-monitor support and will work fine as long as you're not trying to dual-monitor game (also not ideal so I don't see why you'd be doing that)

So, how do I get a dual extended monitor with one video card that only has one DVI output for one monitor?

Are you trying to get dual monitors to run off a desktop or laptop?

depending on which, do you know your hardware specs and your goal for

dual screens and what types of monitors you'd want to use? 

No. I have a desktop that I need to have two monitor in extended mode because I have lots of windows at the same time and I need that extra monitor. I have two HP L2245w monitors.

We have a bunch of same brand/type of single monitor video card laying around. We also have some monitors. So, I like to know if I can just put two of this video cards in one computer and utilize dual monitors. I was not sure Windows would handle two video cards connecting to two monitors and have them work in extended mode.

Many thanks for the response.

Instead of having one video card that have two monitor out, is it possible to have two of the same brand/type of video card for a dual monitor? Will it work if I have two physically video card in the same computer that each have one monitor out for a dual (extended) monitor?

Convert to gpt disk.

I saw this option there but was not sure what GPT disk means. Anyway, you hit the nail on the head. It worked!! However, I think all the steps I've taken above also allows me to see this GPT option being available. It was not there before I install the Seagate software.

Anyway, I am so grateful for all the help I received in this forum. Many thanks for all your help and suggestions.
