No Intel AMT option with ProDesk 400 G2 Desktop Mini

Q: No Intel AMT option with ProDesk 400 G2 Desktop Mini

I have a ProDesk 400 G2 Desktop Mini with an i7-6700T which I am trying to get to work with Intel AMT. But I?m not completely sure if this works since there?s a Realtek NIC and not an Intel one.According to the manual there should be an option to configure Intel AMT in the BIOS, but it?s not there. Also there?s no ?Press <ctrl-p> to configure to enter MEBx setup? or similar after BIOS post.The BIOS shows the following information: System BIOS: N23 Ver. 02.09 08/07/2016ME Firmware Version: 11.0.0.1205 I can?t seem to find information about what the hardware requirements for Intel AMT are, besides vPro. The PCU supports vPro, but I?m starting to think that the Realtek NIC isn?t compatible. Can someone please enlighten me?

I want when the pc starts that the NumLock-key is on. I can't find in the BIOS the setting for this. The Prodesk 600 G1 desktop mini has this option in the BIOS. But the G2 has a new BIOS-layout. I can't find it.

I have just bought a new old stock prodesk 400 g1 mini, just out of warranty. I have set the minimum fan speed in the bios, but it's still way too loud. Is this defective or is there a way of reducing the speed? All the system temps are low, so it could be slower.

I have a new HP Mini 210-2000 with Windows 7 loaded. I have a Samsung flatscreen monitor plugged in. I can duplicate the desktop on the second screen, but cannot find an option for using an extended desktop in Windows 7. Is this a limitation of the HP Mini 210, or is there some setting that I have missed?

Hello, I recently bought a ProDesk 600 G2 Mini which I'm very happy with. However, I can't get the machine to boot from the M.2 NVMe SSD I've installed. There are no problems to use it as a second drive in Windows and also no problems installing Windows on it, but even though I can see it in BIOS and select it to boot from, I only get a "no bootable device" message. Is it possible that such a new machine that has a M.2 port, can't handle booting from a NVMe drive? HP doesn't have any information I can find on this issue, or can someone help me find it? Does anyone know? Best regards, Tommy

A:Booting a ProDesk 600 G2 Mini from a M.2 NVMe SSD?

Can't vouch for consumer class m.2 nvme drives, but HP fully supports HP Turbo Drive G1 (non-nvme) and G2 (nvme) M.2 SSD cards and are configurable as Hard Drive 1 on the Mini, which makes them bootable. It is possible that your SSD has not been properly setup as boot media?

I have got several of these displaying the same problem. Despite the fact that the "after power loss" setting in the bios is set to "Power On", intermittently, some of these units don't, even if they are left "powered off" for several minutes. The problem I have is the pc itself is buried inside another unit and it's a pain to get to, to simply push the power button (which immediately boots the PC).I installed the latest bios update (2.09) - made no difference. Any ideas?

My company purchased three HP ProDesk 600 G1 SFF desktop computers recently, upgrading from three Optiplex 380s. The office uses an older, networked dot matrix printer. Some of the software that prints to this printer requires a Parallel Port driver assigned to LPT1, and the ProDesk 600 G1 does not come with a Parallel Port built-in (it has a spot on the motherboard where one can be added, judging from the motherboard layouts I have found online for this product). I need to purchase expansion cards that will work with Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and can be added to the hardware on this desktop computer. I just need to know which Parallel Port card to buy. I find the HP support site rather complicated and could not find a place where I could investigate what parallel port expansion cards would work with this desktop. All help is appreciated.potterjazz

Hi there, first-time poster/toshiba user here.....

So I got my click mini about 2 weeks ago......but from day one the battery doesn't seem to charge right.

The tablet battery would charge fine and would do so till a full 100%.

Then the keyboard battery would start charging and indicate that it is charging but it would only stay that way, the percentage levels for the keyboard battery would not go up.

The batteries combined would have a total percentage level of 51% and never higher. And when I unplug the charger the battery level in the tablet would start depleting. The keyboard battery would always show 0% whether plugged in or not.

I have updated to BIOS 1.6, did windows update, reinstalled to original settings and even tried out the 24hr continuous charge suggested here and also suggested by tech support but nothing has changed.

I'm kinda at a wits end with this as since I am living in Singapore I can't send it sent in to be repaired as its not under warranty here(they don't even have the hardware/software for it apparently) plus it'll cost me $150 just for them to look at it.

I was told by tech support when I first discovered the problem that BIOS 1.6 would solve the problem. But it has not.....and kinda weird too that they removed BIOS 1.6 update just a few days after releasing it.

Kinda frustrated coz I really like the laptop(perfect for on-the-go/travel).

Regarding keyboard charge, it seems to be charged only after a full charge of tablet - but, so far, it charges correctly here. Although I did notice sometimes it says plugged/not charging - and suddenly becomes plugged/charging - don't know why.

I have an Acer 11.6" Aspire One AO751H netbook. I want to upgrade the wireless-G to N. This model takes the half size mini pci-e cards. I just recently purchased the Intel Ultimate N WiFi Link 5300 card. Installed it yesterday, booted the computer, and so far so good. It recognized the card right away and the driver installation was successful. The wifi activity light works, the card is recognized, but it is unable to detect any networks. It just flashes that little balloon at the bottom saying "wireless networks unavailable". Try to refresh the network list, and i still get nothing. I tried turning the card off, then on again, but nothing. I checked on the driver in Device Manager, and it says it is functioning properly.

I have the most up-to-date BIOS and I am running 32-bit XP Pro (downgraded from the factory installed VISTA). I was wondering if maybe there was an issue with the antennas? The 5300 card has 3 antenna inputs, but the laptop only has two antennas. I was told on numerous forums that it would still function fine with only two antennas, however. I obtained the most up-to-date driver for the card right from intel's website and it installed without any issues at all. Does anyone have any input on to why this card seems to have installed fine, but cannot detect wireless networks? Should I try an older driver? I know many people have upgraded the wifi in this Aspire Ones, so I can't see it simply being incompatible.

I have an IBM T40 Thinkpad that has a built-in Intel Pro Wireless 2100 LAN 3B Mini PCI adapter. A while back, after trying to set up a router, and monkeying with settings, I found I could no longer connect. The OEM-installed IBM Access Connections was no help, and Windows tells me it cannot configure the adapter/connections. At first I thought the card was defective, but 2 new ones have the same results. I've been using a USB adapter, but would like to get the built-in working again. My friend thought I could remove IBM Access Connections and install different software to operate the adapter.

Two questions:
1.Does this sound feasible?
2.Can someone recommend some software (preferably freeware)?

I was wondering as I've got 2 spare slot Mini PCI-Express free on my laptop, if such Intel Card (ITM) could fit inside...This technology is quite not expensive actually.

The mini PCI-E is very ease to access under my keyboard and it just have to be inserted, and at system reboot, Windows7 will recognize straight that card and the proper Intel Turbo drivers.

It does act like "Windows ReadyBoost" & "Windows ReadyDrive" under 7 and Vista...so the system will load faster....boost the disk cache, load faster Apps & perform battery improvement.

Work on "Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset familly" & "Mobile Intel 4 Express Chip Familly".

Any experience in return? or it is just like inserting a SD Card in the Card Reader to Ready Boost?

I have a HP P6-2180 running W7 HP.

I am certain when I first got the machine that the second monitor option was available and worked.
I have updated the driver over the months and now run 8.15.10.2761.
On wanting to use the second monitor today, I went into the set up but the second monitor option is not available. Even in the Intel Graphics and Media Control Panel "Operating Mode" drop down only has "single display" option.
Any ideas how I can get the option to select multiple monitors back?
Many thanks,

What's the exact model number of the onboard Video? Thats common with onboard video even when there is more than one video connector. The multiple connectors are just there for convenience and are feed from the same single source.
Are you using a DVI to VGA adapter? If its a DVI-D connector that won't work as there is no analog out from a DVI-D, it needs to be a DVI-I.

Hello, I have recently purchased Precision 3510 laptops with the intention of using them for research on Intel's new Software Guard Extensions (SGX). These laptops come with the required CPUs that support these new CPU instructions and (we thought) the required BIOS support as well.
In the BIOS for the laptops, there is an option for enabling SGX, but when enabled we are not able to install any of the official Intel SDKs on Windows OR Linux. Additionally, we ran an SGX test program that would dynamically detect the SGX features using CPUID and Machine Specific Registers (MSRs). It successfully detected the SGX hardware support (i.e. the SGX instructions are physically on the CPU chip), but it showed that the BIOS flags controlling the startup of SGX were not enabled (possible SGX specific MSRs have not been set). The specific CPU flag that needs to be set is described here: https://github.com/ayeks/SGX-hardware . Here is a quote from that page that describes what is needed for SGX to work, "The CPU and the motherboard BIOS must support SGX. SGX is turned off by default and must enabled via MSR.IA32_Feature_Control.SGX_Enable. Only the BIOS can make changes to the IA32_Feature_Control".
For reference, we are using the latest BIOS version for our model - version A07. Also, the CPU we have is the Intel Core i5 - 6300HQ CPU @ 2.3GHz. 
I hope we can resolve this issue in a timely manner as we are not able to use these laptops for their intended purpose... Read more

After i installed win 7 in this mode, I tried the regestry trick with the 0 instead of the 3 to load the ahci driver. I renewed the ahci-Driver manualy , and after that, i played with the ata driver in the same way. There always is the same result: the system freezes while booting when the colours come together. Now with  a blue-screen ;-).
The system only works, when in bios the irs-Option (instead ahci) is set.

Any ideas ... and sorry for my english ;-)

Regards
Joachim

I'd like to build one of these, small enough to fit in a small-ish suitcase. I want a gaming machine, so I'd like it to be able to have these specs: A quad-core cpu, up to 4 GB memory, a 1 GB PCI-E video card, at least a 500 watt power supply, dvd player, 500 GB hard drive.

Anyone with any experience with something like this? I've built several of my own desktops, but never a mini, so this is new to me.

Thanks,
Harold

I found the "GIGABYTE GA-G31M-ES2L LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard" on Newegg, it has excellent reviews and seems to have what I need. I've found some excellent mini-cases, but the largest ps is 350 watts. Is this a regular-sized ps, so I could just put in my own 500 watt?

Thanks,

After a few hours with it, though I am still setting it up... I don't see what ALL the hate is about. Some hate, sure... but it is certainly not as bad as Vista was since its actually a bit faster than Win 7 and can use Win 7 drivers so hardware compatibility isn't that big a deal. The hate is really all about the UI and of course the writing on the wall about where the OS is going.

The main problem I see is that it is really 2 OSes cobbled into one. And MS did not do a good job explaining the differences.

The start menu is replaced by the tiles interface and Windows RT OS UI (ie. the tablet OS, ie. the Xbox360 UI)

However there is a desktop tile. Hit that and you are basically back in Win7 OS land, minus the start menu. In its place is an icon that takes you back to tiles. You can right click it and get a very handy menu though. I think you can even default Win8 to logging right into the desktop tile somehow so you never have to see the tiles if you don't want to. If anyone knows how to do this, I would be glad to know.

The other big stumbling block is understanding the difference between Apps (capital A apps) and desktop applications aka legacy apps.

Starting with the desktop, its the same Win7 desktop we all know and love. It is traditional multitasking and multi-threaded and does its thing with desktop programs, services, steams games, etc. but there are also capital A Apps. I think of them like the old widgets. They also run and you can ... Read more

A:My Mini Win 8 Review as a desktop user

Rich, ( are you a drummer? )

The issue that thinking people have is not to do with the UI itself.

It is more about the direction MS is moving with win8 - taking away control and choice from the user and pushing them way MS wants them to go.

To someone who only clicks/jabs at the screen and does basic things like browsing, emailing, going on twitbook, etc - they won't notice.

Therefore it is easy for MS to lead them where MS wants them to go - and that is not a good place.

Hello. I have an HP Stream Mini Desktop 200-010 that will not power on again after it turned itself off while it was idle.  No power light, no fan movement, no beep codes. Things I already tried: 1. I replaced the original AC power adapter with a new one. It still does not power on so we can probably rule out a defective AC adapter brick and cable. 2. Held down the power button with the AC cable and other cables unplugged from the computer to discharge the power as stated on the HP support page. It did not fix it. 3. Opened the computer up and checked all the cables inside. This is not quite like a traditional desktop PC, so the only cables I saw in there were to connect the WLAN/Bluetooth card to the antenna on the top and a small cable for the speaker for beep codes. 4. Tried 3different power outlets around the house so a faulty power outlet shouldn't be the case. Is there any other troubleshooting I can try to fix this problem? It is already outside of the 1 year warranty. Normally I would know what to do to fix a problem if it could actually power on but I feel so helpless when it can't even power on to give me beep codes or anything to work with. Thank you in advance!

I have a very small Asus desktop PC that only uses about 30 watts of electricity. It's supply voltage is 24VDC which it receives from a 24VDC power supply on the piece of equipment it is installed in. I want to add a battery to it so that when this machine is shutdown and power is removed abruptly from the PC it can shutdown gently. I am having no luck finding an off the shelf UPS so I was hoping to add a battery pack (LIKE THIS: http://www.bixmart.com/BiXPower-BP160--19V-12V-Rechargeable-Battery-Power-Bank-Pack_p_109.html) and trick the PC into thinking its a laptop.

Is it possible to add an ''Previous desktop background'' option to the context menu ( see image ) Right now only ''next desktop background'' is available when right clicking on the desktop...

Because this issue has been already unsuccessfully brought up at this forum, I decided to look into the question.

I have looked inside %SystemRoot%\system32\stobject.dll
This is a file, which executes and manages Desktop Slideshow.

And there are the following classes regarding Slideshow:
Slideshow_IsRunning, Slideshow_Refresh, Slideshow_Tick_Timer

When you click "Next desktop background" windows uses class "Slideshow_Refresh" and changes the wallpaper.
And I see no class or function, which could potentially show previous background.

Possible solution would be to use other, non-microsoft software for this purposes, it if is available.

I was trying to switch my static wallpaper to a slideshow one, although when I tried to do it this is what happened:
I selected the folder, and chose the pictures.

Nothing happened, and when I went back into the Personalization window, it was like this: http://screensnapr.com/e/2SoqlJ.png
You can see the Desktop Background icon in the bottom right is black, and no slideshow is selected. This icon is always black, whether I have selected a slideshow or not. It still displays the proper background, just the icon is a little buggy.


Whenever I try other slideshows, they work. I tried customizing them to my own photos, but then the Desktop Background icon just went black again.

Go to Start -> Run and enter Sendto (all one word, no spaces)

This should open C:\Documents and Settings\YOURACCOUNT\Sendto.
If it doesn't, open Windows Explorer and navigate to that
location.
Is there a "Desktop (create shortcut)" icon present in this
folder?
If it's missing, check these two location.
C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\SendTo
C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile\SendTo
If you find it in either location, see if you can copy and
paste it into your Sendto folder.

If you don't find it, do the following:
Go to Control Panel and double click Folder Options.
Click on the View tab.
In the Advanced settings box, uncheck "Hide extension for known
file types".
Click OK.
Next, open Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\Documents and

I recently upgraded my desktop from 7 to 10.

This is no longer something my computers seem to do; literally all that has changed is that I upgraded the desktop OS and I would have assumed this is something windows10 can do but the Bluetooth menu is almost comically unhelpful.
It used to be relatively easy to do this in 7 but I am at a loss as to how to do this in 10. Is this functionality somehow not a part of Win10?

Hey all, when you right-click on the desktop there is an option for Next Desktop background in the slideshow. Is it possible to add a context menu item for the Previous background? Perhaps a registry tweak?

The registry keys for desktop background slide show settings are:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers

Value data: {0bf754aa-c967-445c-ab3d-d8fda9bae7ef}

Can this value be changed to produce the desired function?

I'm not sure exactly where this belongs in this forum. If I'm in the wrong place, will someone please point me in the proper direction?

I've just installed Win 7 Enterprise on a former Win 8.1 system. It a Sony Vaio with a Core I7 processor and 8gb of RAM.

It was a clean install (formatted, re-partitioned drive, etc.). Nothing appeared wrong during the installation process and all applications installed properly.

I like to use recent travel pictures as an auto-changing background. I've been doing it for years without a hitch. Now there seems to be a hitch.

On any of my other boxes, if Right Click on the screen, select "Personalize", then "Desktop Background", and then look in the "Picture Location" drop-down, I have a choice of "Windows Desktop Backgrounds", "Picture Library", "Top Rated Photos", "Solid Colors", and any other picture paths I may have earlier selected. I can also "Browse" to yet another picture directory, and select that instead.

On this new installation, I only see "Windows Desktop Backgrounds" and "Solid Colors"! While I CAN browse to other directories, I'm unable to get them to stick.

I have a sneaking suspicion that it might have something to do with "Libraries", but I'm out of my depth there.

Has anyone any ideas that might help me solve this problem? I'd appreciate any and all available help.... Read more

Hello tenforums, I hope you can help.

A friend of mine who recently upgraded to Windows 10 is legally blind and is struggling with some accessibility options. Here is what we are struggling with: We need to change the font color of desktop icons to black. Certain contrasts are more visible for some impairments and in this case, a yellow background with black bold icon text is the best condition.

What I've tried:
Tried high contrast theme / modeTried to modify regedit based on a suggestion for 8.1 here.

Where I've looked:
Control Panel - System - Advanced System Settings - Advanced - PerformancePersonalize - Change Desktop IconsPersonalize - ColorsControl Panel - PersonalizationDisplay SettingsThemes - Theme Settings

I was able to get the text black when using the white high contrast mode, but that option won't work. While it does change the icon text to black, it also takes over many other options that deliver a less than desirable contrast for the user. We originally were thinking we could start with the high contrast theme, save as another theme and then systematically roll back the changes we didn't like, leaving the black text. Does not work - when in high contrast mode it effectively locks out your ability to make certain changes.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

A:Desktop Icon Color Change - Accessibility Option

I struggled with this for some time but I found a way. If you have the background set to picture, set it to Solid color. Chances are it's black by default. This is forcing a white font color regardless what you select for a picture. Change it to say orange, which will make the font color black. Now change the background back to picture, and you should have a black icon font color.

Hello everyone,

It's been 3 months I'm having this problem. All the icons of my desktops have disappeared, but i can access what was present on my desktop from "my documents" folder.

Also, the right click option of my mouse no more works on the desktop.

The recycle bin is always empty, even when i send items to it. Which means when i delete an item, i lose it completely!

My shut down and stand-by options have also disappeared from my task bar. I have to log off to be able to shut the computer.

A friend advised me to use Combofix to get rid of this problem.

I am doubtful of what to do will be grateful if i can get advice from you! Please let me know.

Thanks!

For a quick fix try system restore, back before the problem started. I bet that will fix it.

Hi, i had a slide show of my photos working nicely until yesterday. I think it stopped when i upgraded Adobe Flash - i have tried system restore but no joy there.

When i go to set "Picture Location" in "Choose your desktop background" i can't set the Picture Library setting. If i browse to one of my picture folders the box shows "This folder is empty".

I've tried quite a few things from the forum for similar sounding problems but have made no progress hope someone can help!

Windows 10 customization has been a bit of a moving target. The latest casualty was the ability to have Windows cycle through my top rated photos as the background slideshow. Now, I only have the option to point to a folder for a slide show.

This was a really cool feature b/c it meant I could cycle through my favorite pictures without having to move (and likely duplicate) them. Does anyone know how to recover this feature without having to move my pictures?

Hello All,

I have had to reinstall my laptop and now i'm having some trouble finding the tweak to remove the "insert a smartcard" option from my logon box when i try to connect to an external computer with the remote desktop client.

I know it's there because i once found it. Only forgot to write down what the solution was.

Can someone help me out?

A:Insert a Smartcard option logon screen Remote Desktop

You should be able to find it in Device Manger, it may be under "Other Devices" but not sure, It may help to click on the view tab in Device manger then choose the "Show all Devices" once you find it I would think that disabling the device would prevent the option from showing up.

This is the first and last time I will ever buy an Acer product. I picked up this Acer desktop at my local Walmart and had no idea just how small the CPU was. It has a notebook type Intel 1.6 CPU that will not even allow me to stream live videos. The worse part of all is that I cannot even upgrade it. It seems to be fused to the motherboard. Otherwise my brother in law could pop in a better CPU plus addition RAM sticks. It is terribly slow also, and sometimes freezes up. I am furious that I cant stream live video, but more upset about the non upgradable motherboard.

Hello HP Users! Hoping someone can help with what i would have thought was a rather simply question however Google has failed me.  I need to know what kind of PSU is in the HP Prodesk 400 G2 SFF. The information i have so far found through HP and Google is that it cost $280 for a 240W PSU or HP uses annoying parts that are almost impossible to replace / upgrade.  Reason is i need to upgrade the PSU as it is not powerful enough to both power the computer and a simple 128MB DMS-59 Video Card. I know right! Previously i had a 3 moniter set up on my work PC. However due to a small change in roles i have had some software installed on my PC (Cisco Soft Phone) that seems to have stop my previous 2 montier working that were working via VGA to USB j5create.  As such i saw that it had a display port on the back, so bought a VGA to dP converter and connected one moniter via VGA and the second via dP however this just resulted in Duplicate Display and Windows would not detect the second screen, and display the same on both.  I couldnt find anything in the BIOS that seemed to disable this, as it appears HP BIOS automatically allows Dual Displays.  Therefore i brought a ATI Radeion HD 3400 128MB DMS-59 PCI-e GFX card, however turns out that the little 240W unit in the PC (OMG I didnt even know they made them this small for PC's :/) is not enough to power both the Computer and the GFX card, ergo need to move up to something a litt...
