Question about IBM Netfinity 4000R 8652 Server

1 Answer

USB no longer works !

Bought Server Fedora 6 was installed. Upgraded the Hard Drive to a HD 40 GB Drive and Installed the Max 2GB of RAM. I am only running 1 processor at the current time but have another to install shortly. Everything works perfectly except USB ports on the back. They were working when I got the server but after upgrading and installing Server 2003 they no longer work. I downloaded the PCI to USB Drivers and installed them and they show they are installed however the server fails to load them or atleast the devices. I feel it is most likely a BIOS problem however there is no Support anymore for this server on IBM and INTEL which is what the Chipset and BIOS is seems not to be of any use either. Need Suggestions ..... If you have an answer drop me a message @ kzthomas@citlink.net or kris@digitalsoupwv.com and let me know what to do about this problem. I am a Web Master / Net Admin so don't be afraid to drop big terms...... This is the first time I have ever ran across such a tempramental touchy server in my life.

    All the Devices in the Device Manager are recognized even the PCI to USB Host Controller. It has a warning by it. When I go into the logs on Server 2003 R2 Enterprise it says the device failed to initialize. I was banking on the chipset to however when I called INTEL they didn't seem to know what I needed based upon the system info I provided them. I asked them how do I find out what motherboard and chipset information they need so they can provide me the drivers and their reply was: " It should be listed somewhere on the motherboard." LOL........ ya think ? So as you can see I am wondering around helplessly I suppose.....

Cant install new operating systems from USB or CD and have RAM Issues.


And you changed and saved new boot order in BIOS?

You may have a bad DIMM. Test one card, one slot at a time till you identify the bad one.

Ram cards


Hello,

Make sure that when you populate the memory slots that you are using like memory cards per memory bank set. Example: A1 and A2 consist of one blue and one beige slot. Use a 2GB card in one and a 2GB card in the next one. Starting with A1, use your 2GB memory cards first and then the 1GB cards. Once complete, reboot your system and enter into the BIOS to verify the total 12GB are being "seen" by the system.

Also, consider your os. If you are running Windows Vista 64 bit, Windows 7... they will only see 8GB max. OS like Windows server xxxx will be able to see all memory avaliable to the unit.

Good Luck

Problem with the Dell PowerEdge 2650 Server Can't detect Hard drive


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If this does not work then reboot and go to theBIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn'tdetect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to determine if thehard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an external hard drive and you cannot open the various folders and files,this confirms the hard drive is faulty. The hard drive needs to bereplaces in the laptop and Windows installed and the laptop's device driversand your programs etc to get a functioning laptop again.

The USB driver installed by default. U need not have to install it separately. If it is not recognised then try to use it on another system, see whether it gets connected or not

Windows won't see all of my 4GB of RAM but BIOS does! Why?


Windows xp will usually only see 3.5 gbs of ram even in your motherboard can support more. WIndowns vista does recognize more RAM or i also believe windows xp 64bit recognizes more ram. Nothing wrong with ram or your computer its just your operating system.
