BOOT FAIL: PCF8584: I2C ERROR

Fatal error: controller kernel self test failed. Controller POST operation failed.

PCF8584: I2C Error: PIN without slave ACK, status=0x08 failed

***Error: selft test failed
component: DIMM Controller cache memory
test: Failed to read DIMM device 0x50
DIMM may not be properly connected or DIMM is missing

PCF8584 is the parallel to serial I2C bus controller
PIN -- Pending Interrupt Not
ACK -- acknowledged

Is this a mother board failure is because the DIMM socket group 4 is empty.

    I did the memory module swap. Pretty good idea but nothing wrong with memory.



    As it turns out the dimm that could not be read was associated with the PCF8584 - I2C bus controller,... on the SCSI card.



    We have replaced the SCSI and the srvr is back up.



    Thanks for your help.

According to the message you received on the screen there's might be something wrong with your RAM module(s). Take a look inside and see if everything's alright with RAM. Replace it to another slot if there are empty.
Download and use a program like MemTest to see if RAM is properly working.
If you have another computer which is compatible with your RAM, try it inserting then in to PC and see if everyhting's alright.
If nothing helps, then purchase a new RAM module

The errors in computers make it miserable for their users to use them. They face so many problems when computers do not perform as intended. A very common error, which computer users can face, is the c000021a fatal system error.
This error is produced when it found by Windows NT kernel that either of the two processes Csrss.exe or Winlogon.exe has failed. Such processes could have stopped working due to many reasons like misaligned files being installed on the PC and a faulty restoration of files at the place where they were being used. In the event of such a situation, the Windows NT kernel stops the system and the stop c000021a fatal system error message is produced on the screen. This kind of a fatal exception happens when the PC can't tackle an exception and the program showing it needs to be closed.
This kind of a c000021a unknown hard error can be resolved by uninstalling the software that is not as per the needs of your PC. One can remove all the unwanted files present on the PC. An upgrade of the PC's operating system is also an alternative to restore it to its working condition and fix the stop c000021a unknown hard error.
The second solution to fix c000021a error from your computer is also very simple. You do not need to feel much hassled because of it. Just restart the computer. When the computer is booted, press the F8 button. Choose the last known good configuration and then press enter. This error generally happens when some software or hardware has been installed that is not as per the specifications of the PC. Therefore, after selecting the operating system you want for booting, the C000021a error will have been removed from your system.
However, it is better to utilize a registry cleaner software when the error still does not go away.
Windows registry includes all the information that is used by this operating system for carrying on with any operations like creation of documents. Windows Kernel uses all this information for executing the applications.
Registry cleaner software can ensure that the registry is cleaned of all the bad entries which have been causing an improper execution of files by Windows Kernel. Using this software is one of the most effective ways to fix the c000021a fatal system error. It can clean the registry without deleting any useful items from it which can lead to production of further errors.

Fix C000021a Fatal System Error is easy to do with registry cleaner. If you Scan Your Computer it will detect all the errors in your registry and safely remove them.

The error message says fatal system error.


Hi. The STOP 0xC000021A error occurs when either Winlogon.exe or Csrss.exe fails. When the Windows NT kernel detects that either of these processes has stopped, it stops the system and raises the STOP 0xC000021A error. This error may have several causes. Among them are the following:
  • Mismatched system files have been installed.
  • A Service Pack installation has failed.
  • A backup program that is used to restore a hard disk did not correctly restore files that may have been in use.
  • An incompatible third-party program has been installed.
Booting the computer to its Last known good configuration will resolved the issue. Please see procedure below:

Turn of the computer
Keep on tapping F8 key the moment you press the power button
You should be getting a advanced boot screen
Select Last known good configuration from the selections then hit enter
Computer should be booting up by now to windows

All the best!

These pins are referred to as "jumpers". Each manufacturer can have their own jumper settings. Each device should have letters indicating which pins correspond to master, slave, or cable select. The best method to insure operation is to use the cable select (CS) jumper setting. Using this setting, the hardware will be automatically configured.
