Question about HP MSA 1000 (A7450AFS1) Hard Drive Array

1 Answer

Two drives fails simoultaneously.

For the second time in 6 months I have two drives (the same two bays) fail at the same second resulting in loss of data - the F:\ drive on SQL server disappeared and since that is where i store the logs SQL went down hard. I havent even started that recovery.

Only one drive shows as failed in the GUI. When swapping out this drive it now has taken over 24 hrs to rebuild (40 folks sitting around doing nothing)

HP technician is now onsite but I dont get the feeling that he knows what is going on.

Any help on this critical production issue would be much appreciated.

I personally would suspect your Power Supply is dishing out "Dirty Power"
I would sort this problem out first.
This is probably what destroyed the "Other" two in the "Same two Bays" sic

Runs for an hour then will not start act like its vapor locked

its EFI they dont vapor lock , like carbs, not at all.
so lost spark, test spark on all cylinders.
if you lost it all , you dropped the ASD relay?
if you have spark try test fuel,. (spray)
im now posted this everytime , no spark. my 3 time now, trying to reach a new record..... LOL
no scan , tool so on your car , you do the CEL falsh code deal.
see in the fsm under emission+diagnostics.

quoting my self.... on this forum...
posted to fixya many times
ASD "automatic shut down relay"
what is it?
it cuts fuel (and spark) if the PCM thinks, there is any danger of crash and burn.
The PCM drops the ASD for many reason, this list is all years. (some are missing on early years)

1: sees the spark weak or dead on the ignitor or coil primary pin. (it knows spark is bad)
2: Crank sensor bad. or misfiring. CKP
3: cam sensor bad, or misfiring , CMP.
4: ASD input read back pin fails. (PCM commanded it but it refused to do its job)
5: same ASD output fails. i commanded it but the relay is bad. dead.
6: Immoblizer active. (failing or bad key etc,)

if the ASD drops driving or even parked idling
one of the above caused it.

the ASD has engine startup logic that is unique to JEEPs.
you must crank with in seconds or the key on is ignored by many jeeps.
you crank and the above 6 must not fail during the start event or it cuts the ASD.

note carefully, if spark is bad cranking, the ASD cuts spark 100% more dead.(funny, but very true ,read the ASD schematic)

you only get 2 seconds to get the 6 factors true or the game is all over.
if when driving, it sees one of the 5 fail, ASD drops.
in fact ASD can drop then come back. while drive, people say it cuts out.

if true, using any dirt cheap scan tool will show why,

DTCs tell you. Cmp /ckp or spark dead.
pending or live DTC
freeze frame, dtc will show what failed.
and even seeing RPM drop like a rock, faster than any crankshaft can spin down, dig?

or loss of 12vdc power to the PCM , does all this above. DIES.

My 1994 Camry started smoking and overheating after I heard a pop noise. What could this be

Smoking from the tailpipe or the engine bay? At this point it could be that a radiator hose failed and you have lost coolant, or that a head gasket is blown, both of which can make a noise.

More silent is the possible failure of a coolant temp sensor, thermostat, or radiator fan hydraulic drive (if fitted).

The worst is a blown head gasket, and a compression test will show this. A failed radiator hose and coolant loss will be obvious.

OS will not boot up. unable to start in any mode and also unable to do chkdsk. doing an OS will not boot test, results in sata error uncorrectable data or is read only

My best guess is that your hard drive has failed or is failing. Replace it. Boot to your Windows CD/DVD and install windows. Then add your old drive as a second disk and, if you are lucky, you can copy your data from it before it fails completely.

Good luck. I hope this helps.

Power loss after 2 seconds from booting up.

Best solution I can think of is Step by Step

Remove those items again and Step by Step, 1 by 1 install each item.

If each item installs ok one by one, then leave in one item at a time. Slow process yes, but you might find which item is causing the conflict.

If you install smething an the machine fails Remove it and the Item before it, then install the Item that failed and try it again.

If it fails then it could be the item not the PSU.

If it fails because of all the items... Then you may need to upgrade your PSU

2003 chrysler pt cruiser air conditioner is putting out only hot air

This is only a DIY check list of probable faults.
1. Electrical failure thro' the Fuses and Relays that energise the Compressor clutch.
2. Lack of Freon in the System,
3.Split Hi or Lo pressure hoses, due to chafing on the engine or body work, causing pressure loss.
4. Failed Expansion valve.
5. Leaking coupling joint seals in system.
6. Broken Drive belt for the Compressor.
7. Failed Compressor Clutch Electric windings,
8. Failed Hi pressure hose/pipe In line switch, that also enegises the compressor clutch.
9. Defective Thermostat in the Evaporator core.
10.Holed Condenser permitting pressure loss.
Best of luck on the fault finding trail.
I suggest a trip to Walmart, to acquire the low cost Charge canisters to find the pressure loss fault,if it is not in the other fault suggestions.

Emachines pc keeps saying hard drive is failing

What kind of resources are you pulling on the pc everyday? For example are you doing heavy writing to the drive everyday such as video editing, ripping etc and how much air flow is your pc getting. If the case gets too hot or warm for long periods of time it can cause the hard drive to fail quickly. Lastly check your power supply male sure its pputting out the proper voltage to the computer specifially the connection to the hard drive. If its not stable the nit will cause your hard drive to fail.
