Network & Speed Problem


I suspect that the network interface card failed, & that's why you get the error message. Try disabling it from the BIOS & see if the error message disappears. If it did, then you have a failing network interface card & need to install anew one.

Running Non-ECC Ram in a IBM Netfinity 3500 M20


Dear NickB,

In my experience working with many servers, Non-ECC memory will not work on a machine that requires ECC memory. It is possible in some servers to disable the ECC mode in the system BIOS to allow non-ECC memory to work, but you will often end up with performence problems later on.
Hope this information helps, let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Wont Post get 9 beeps!


This problem is due to the mix of registered and unregistered DIMMs. 64Mb and 128 Mb DIMM's are unregistered memory technology 256MB is registered memory technology. A mix of registered and unregistered memory prevents the server from completing startup, and results in an error beep sequence and a blank screen

Video controller disabling


That model server comes with onboard video. If you wish to use a PCI video card then all you have to do is place it in the server and the BIOS will automatically disable the onboard. If it currently has a PCI video card in it, just remove the PCI card and you should get the onboard video again. Hope this helps.
