I would check the firmware/bios as these had a known issue.
Check with IBM for the latest firmware and BIOS.
Update me if this does not resolve the problem.

Recover data from corrupt .mdf and .ldf files.


You can find more information here:
http://www.filerepairforum.com/forum/microsoft/microsoft-aa/sql-server/569-i-have-a-problem-how-do-i-fix-a-corrupted-database-file

Open your SQL Server Management Studio console. This application shortcut is available in the SQL Server directory in the Windows Start button.
· Enter the system administrator user name and password. SQL Server's administrator user name is "sa." This account is required for privileges to restore the database. If your restoring on a host provider server, use the administrator user name and password they supplied for your account.
·Right-click your database name and select "Attach." In the new window that opens, click the "Add" button to open a dialog box.
·Select your MDF file and press the "Ok" button. It may take several minutes to restore the database if it is a large file. Once the process is finished, browse your tables to verify the data. The database is now restored.

Here are some of the best practices to take into consideration in any backup & recovery system:
  • Usually perform system state backups of your servers frequently. Each computer on a Windows network has a corresponding computer account in Active Directory. Like a user account, the computer account has an associated password. The difference is that the password is assigned, and periodically changed, by Windows. If you try to restore a system state backup that is too old, the computer account password that is stored in the backup will no longer match the password that is bound to the computer account in Active Directory. As a result, the machine won't be able to participate in the domain. There are workarounds, but it is usually easier to just make frequent system state backups of your servers, & use these backups to recover the servers when needed.
  • Always backup the data, the server's operating system, & the applications installed on the server. Although it is true that, if a server fails and you need to perform a full recovery, you can reinstall the operating system & the applications & then restore any data. However, time is of the essence when trying to recover from a crash. It is much faster to restore everything from backup than it is to manually install an operating system and a set of applications. More important, it is often difficult to manually configure a server so that it matches its previous configuration. Backing up the entire server ensures that its configuration will be exactly as it was before the crash.
  • Periodically test your backups to make sure you are able to use them for recovery when the disaster strikes. Always remember that we perform backups in order to be able to restore from then when we need to. So, we have to make sure our backups are usable.
  • For some applications (for example, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Exchange Server, Lotus Domino Server, ... etc), a file-level backup is insufficient. These applications usually utilize open databases that need a special backup agent to back them up consistently while they are being in-use. Usually make sure that you are using the correct backup agent needed by your application.
  • While you should keep backups off site, consider waiting until the end of the business day to remove the previous night's tapes from the building. This way, if your server fails early during the day, you will not have to wait for hours till you can get the tapes on-site again & start the recovery.
  • Construct your backup architecture in a way that avoids (at least as much as possible) having a single point of failure. If possible, have a backup for your backups, or configure 2 independent backup schedules to run everyday.
  • Do not rely solely on a disk-to-disk backup solution. Although disk-to-disk backup solutions offer many advantages over traditional tape backups, they should not be the only backup solution to rely upon. In such a scenario, the backup server is prone to the same risks as the servers it protects. A hurricane, lightning strike, fire, or flood could wipe out your backup server along with your other servers. For this reason, it is important to dump the contents of your disk based backups to tape on a frequent basis, and then store those tapes in an off-site secure storage.
  • When deciding to replace your current backup technology with a newer one, do not get rid of the old tapes, tape device(s) & backup software. At least, do not do this unless you are sure that your newer tape device(s) support the older tapes, or that you have moved the older backups to newer media supported by the newer tape device(s). This way, when it is required to retrieve data from the old backups, you will be able easily to retrieve the required data. This also could apply to the older backup software if the newer backup application does not support the older tapes or tape device(s).
  • There is no denying that it is important to secure your backups, but it is equally important to consider the consequences of your security measures. If you find yourself having to restore a backup after a major system failure, the last thing you need is an ill-conceived security mechanism standing in the way of the recovery. For example, if you are planning to use hardware-level encryption, do not forget (when time comes to upgrade your backup hardware) to make sure that your new hardware supports the previously used encryption.
  • Always use a long tape rotation scheme, or at least keeping some of your backup tapes as long-term archives.

I have a Lynx system with a 5828 wireless keypad that I have connected a 5v transformer to it to keep the keypad lit always. The keypad does not stay lit always and it keeps going to sleep after 10...


It sounds like your 5V transformer isn't working. It could be the outlet it is plugged into isn't working, or the outlet is on a light switch that is turned off, or there is a problem with the keypad itself. The user manual says:

"AC-Powered Operation: When powered by the
optional AC adapter, the keypad remains active at all
times. If AC power is lost, the keypad reverts to
battery-powered operation until AC power is restored
On AC powered units you can get the status by viewing
the display."

The only way I know of to keep it active is by using the transformer.

Hope this helps.

Tried downloading mms app from cydia and phone is frozen


Apps from non-Apple places typically don't go over well. You'll need to do a back up and restore (as new) with iTunes. AT&T has released official MMS as of 09/25, please use it and be sure you have the latest 3.1 software (it will download automatically in back up and restore). Always be cautious with 3rd party app stores, half my calls every day are about sites that crashed people's iPhones.

What happen if computer hard disk overload


your hard drive would eventualy crash and seeing that the drive is overloaded there wouldn't be sufficient space left for System Restore to run as it needs a fair amount of space to run. My advice is to always keep about 10% of your HDD size open for System Restore to run properly in case of a HDD crash or system crash.
