StorStation fails to boot up - blue screen of death
Hi. My Sony StorStation FSV-M1 recently died. It was emmiting a beeping alarm sound. I powered it down, and now it won't boot up. It attempts to boot of the Master IDE, but fails, and displays a 'blue-screen-of-death', with instructions to run CHKDSK. I'm not sure how to repair the operating system, because the StorStation has no CD-ROM drive, only an Ultra Wide 68-pin micro centronix (Female) port. I have the original StorStation installation disk, can I put this into another PC and recover the Operating System over the LAN?
Any suggestions much appreciated,
Re: StorStation fails to boot up - blue screen of death
The beeping alarm could have been overheating. You could try taking the HDD out and putting it in a workstation to run chkdsk on it.
Incidently what operating system does this model use? I have an FSV-E1 which seems to run some Unix type system.

Alarm? Beep? Pull the AC plug, plug in , try again. Reseat the Memory Mods, replace CMOS battery. Need more info to give a informed solution. You didn'y supply your Model of Acer or OS? Take a look at Acer Support: http://support.acer.com/us/en/default.aspx
First remove any power cables and batteries(if laptop) from your system and hold down the power button for 15 seconds.
Plug the power cable back in & attempt to boot. If this does not solve your problem then you will need to remove all non-essentials from your system.
If laptop, this simply consist of battery, ram, optical drive & any other removable bays or devices. Unplug all cables except the power cable & attempt to boot.
If desktop, you will need to remove any cables plugged into your computer except keyboard, mouse, power, video, sound, & network cable. Open the case & remove any PCI cards, except video cards, unless you have on-board video, unplug the data & power cables going to the optical & hard drives. Now attempt to boot. If you have no luck you can remove your RAM sticks & try again. If you get an error beep warning you about no ram then you might have a bad ram stick. If none of the above works then you may have a bad power supply or motherboard. Power supplies are pretty easy to test with tester or use a spare.
Hi, Hopefully this will help solve your problem: 1.Press and hold down the power button located at the front of the PS3 console, until you hear a first beep, then eventually a second – before the console shuts down, then let go of the button; 2.Now press and hold the button again until you hear a first beep, then a second beep then eventually a quick double-beep, then let go of the button; 3.The TV screen should now display a six option menu, where you can select what’s required, i.e. `Restart System`, `Restore System` etc. `Reset System` should only be used after other attempts with the other options, as your game saved data may be lost. If you play Modern Warfare 2 online, then this won’t be affected as your data is saved on the Sony Server. 4.During any of the above actions, your best having your handset controller connected to the PS3 via the USB cord, which includes pressing the `P` button when required (located between `Start` and `Select`). These actions should help solve `freeze` problems and others such as update errors etc – which restrict you starting up or playing your console. Don’t hesitate to contact Sony UK if required, who are very helpful. Their UK number is: 0844 7360595 Good Luck!
Sounds like one of two errors - either one of the power supplies has died (not sure if the 1800 has redundant power supplies or not) or a drive in the RAID array has failed. Most likely it's the drive. Run the Dell Server Administrator tool to check the health status of the array, sounds like you need to replace a drive. Most RAID systems fail if you lose more than one drive, so I'd replace that drive ASAP.
The first question is, are you attempting to boot from your CD ROM and if so why? I need to understand more about what is happening before I attempt to answer your problem. Are you attempting to fix a problem or re-install your operating system? Do you always boot from a CD and if so, why not the hard drive? Is the same operating system installed on both your laptop and your desktop?
what version of vista are you using, this is a very important piece of information, vista home flavors are not very network friendly,I recommend that you keep using XP until a few service packs are out for vista. If your using ultimate then something else would be wrong, possibly a setting on the vista box, Im not real sure how vista's authentication works but if they changed it enough then it might require a compatiblity mode or something in order to authenticate with 2000/xp, but then again i could be wrong and vista might authenticate exactly the same way as 2000/xp, try setting an xp box up as a server and see if the vista box can authenticate with it, if so then maybe 2000 is the problem, sorry i couldnt give an actual solution but im still new to vista myself and dont have any pc's that will run it, my good computers are all macs.
