20 Most Recent IBM DGHS09Y (dghs-09y) 9.10 GB Hard Drive Questions & Answers

In all likelihood, your drive has reached the end of its lifespan. You may be fortunate enough to be able to read it just long enough to recover important data, but doing a full copy of the hard drive may be out of the question.
Data recovery, in general, is tricky and not something that can be done by just anyone. The simplest way I would suggest trying to cover some of this data is to take it to a computer repair shop and have them try to read it and let them know what the important data on it is. You could try to access it yourself by either connecting it to a friend's machine or, if you're a bit more savvy, to boot up using a Linux LiveCD and read the disk that way.
In any case, with most SCSI drives being over 10 years old in some instances, I would expect that your drive has just failed.

Bad memory stick, possibly. Or maybe bad motherboard. try different memory, and try swapping to different slots.

Have you tried using an external monitor to make sure the video is working on the new motherboard?

I am not an expert in such things but I think if you use a widely available adaptor that will power the old hard drive and provide usb connectivity your Windows 7 should be able to read and allow you to move files, as long as the old drive and the WIN 7 are both 32 BIT (or 64)...

Win10 should auto-detect it; so it should need a driver from it manufacture.
Assuming the monitor is properly functioning, and if you are still having problems:
1) Use the most up-to-date connection such as HDMI, DVI, or Display Port
2) Then with the monitor connected, force a Windows update.
3) Make sure the display adapter's resolution matches one of the monitor's supported resolutions.

Try the drive on other usb ports first.
Listen for the windows "Beeps" when you plug it in or take it out. If the beeps are heard then you need to go into Disk Management and assign drive letters to the partitions

Download and use this driver instead, EPSON TM-88II Printer Driver, 4.00.

Good luck.

Use generic text driver - go for LPT (default port) then change the installed printer properties later.

get the serial settings of the printer first (bauds etc).

make sure that it is a 24/9 pin NULL-MODEM serial cable

monk3ybidzness Aug 28, 2008

Just use the Generic Text Driver type autoexec.bat>lpt1:
C:\>type filename.txt>LPT1:
If that works consistently, the problem is probably in Windows.
Be sure Windows is set-up correctly with the correct printer driver and something else (another printer, FAX, etc.) is not assigned LPT1: Be sure the 710 is set as the default Windows printer. Try it on another desktop computer. If that works, try another printer on the suspect computer. I have seen cases where a baby AT motherboard was upgraded, but the printer cable/header assembly from the old motherboard was used and caused problems, but that is very rare. Also, the cable connecting to the motherboard could be backwards or loose.
