HP error code 363, what does this mean?


I went online and found the HP8600 user manual and this is their solution to the error code 363 that you reported, which I copied off their site. Hope this works for you:

  • Turn Error Correction Mode (ECM) off, if you encounter the same error repeatedly. Click this link HP All-in-One and Fax Products for more information on enabling or disabling ECM.

    beaac3qsmgaaaaaelftksuqmcc

    NOTE: Error codes that apply specifically to ECM have ECM listed next to them.


Error Code: 356, 357, 358, 359, 360, 361, 362 ECM, 363 ECM, 364 ECM, 365 ECM, 366 ECM

Definitions

  • The remote user pressed the Stop key, causing the session to be terminated.
  • The remote machine encountered a system problem such as no paper or a paper jam. This prevented the fax from receiving any more pages, and caused it to terminate the session prematurely.
  • The call-waiting service can cause this error. The click, heard for an incoming call, is actually a momentary disconnect of the line.
  • The remote machine encountered an incompatible feature causing it to terminate the session.



Solutions

  • Configure the remote machine for document reception by clearing any paper jams, loading sufficient paper, and clearing any other error messages.
  • Configure the local fax machine to use a slower reception speed.
  • Enable or disable the ECM setting.

Startup


Disable the start up features on the wireless, if it has an enable/disable function. This will increase the boot speed, but you will have to manually turn on the wireless or search wireless connections manually. This is a common annoyance, doesn't quite qualify as problem, but there is no win win situation with this. Either you have slow start up or manual wireless.

Asus M2N-MX Motherboard 4gb Ram wont work


I had the same problem and ASUS tech support was of no help. I did however find the culpret in the BIOS setup. Go to Advanced, Chipset, NorthBridge Chipset, and Memory Configuration. Set the Bank Interleaving to Disabled and save the settings. Check these settings also while you are there:
Channel Interleaving = Auto
Enable clock to all DIMMS = Disabled
Memory Tristate = Disabled
Memory Hole = Enabled
Unganged Mode = Enabled
Power Down Enable = Enabled
Power Down Mode = Channel
