Question about Sun Micro Refurbished SUNBLADE 1000/2000 SUNFIRE 280R BOARD Micro (5015938)

1 Answer

SunFire 280R Our Sunfire 280R doesn't boot up. It keeps self-diagnosing and rebooting. Sometimes it finishes all diagnostics and tries to start up server, then, hangs up and reboots again. Other times, it hangs up even before going into fsck. I see 'Invalid Fcode startbyte at fff0a000" and "Fatal Error reported by CPU0" intermittently during all those reboot cycles. Sometimes, fsck finds incorrect block counts and corrects them. Other times, file system is all fine.

Unit starts/stops-starts/stops after replacing 3v battery?


When you say starts/stops (etc) are you saying it just keeps trying to reboot? Or are you getting a message such as boot disk not found press any key to restart? Replacing the 3V battery will cause the CMOS to reset to factory defaults. You may need to go into the CMOS and make setting changes to point to the proper disk drive for booting. You may even have to change the type of disc drive since there is now the old MBR as well as the newer GPT format. Also, there is the possibility that if you are upgrading you may need to use the legacy CMOS instead of the UEFI that many newer mainboards come defaulted to. Any error in the CMOS settings can cause a boot failure.

How do I access the factory restore from either f12 or f2?


U may not have to do a factory restore. That is painful.
Boot into safe mode (repeated hit F8 while booting and select SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING.
once there open START menu and type CMD. Rt clk the top item (CMD.exe) and select run as admin...
When DOS window opens type chkdsk c: /f
it will ask u if u want to do it on next reboot - say yes, then reboot.
when done it will try to reboot. If it works u r good to go.
if it does not get into safe mode again and to the DOS window and type SFC /SCANNOW
This will run a chk of ur system files and fix any corrupt ones.
Do that even if it does boot up normally.
If u can't get into safe mode then u need tall boots.
A system restore may be needed. HOWEVER, that wipes away everything on the HDD. I would first try to do a Windows update install. That will reinstall windows and leave programs and data intact.
If that does not work, then connecting the HDD to another computer to remove ur data and reformat the HDD before trying a restore is recommended as u may have an HDD issue.

How do I wipe my hard drive clean and restore it to the way it was when I purchased it


If you have the original disc drive installed (and the original OS), try pressing F9 repeatedly after turning on the computer. (Sometimes, it can be hard to get the timing right - the button press needs to be seen after the POST and before Windows loads. If you see Windows starting to load, let it finish loading and then shut down the computer and try again.)

This will access the recovery partition and reformat the computer and restore the machine to the factory state. Follow the on-screen directions and make sure that you have saved your personal data elsewhere.

However, if your computer has the ASUS boot booster, you will need to disable this feature to access the recovery program. Try pressing F2 or Delete (depending on your machine) to enter the BIOS with the same timing as the above use of F9. Then find the option to Disable the boot booster. Then press the F9 key on another start up cycle. My ASUS computer doesn't have this feature so I'm not sure where it may be in the BIOS (if on your computer).

Asus offers a WinPE wipe and recovery option for some of their computers that can be put on a USB flash drive. http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?id=20091019013723218&board_id=20&model=Eee+PC+1005HA&page=1&SLanguage=en-us has the procedure for one of their other models.

I hope this helps.

I have a pavilion dv6410us, 2 yrs old, vista home premium, no video keeps rebooting, Turion 64 X2 cpu , is the problem with the cpu or the motherboard???


9 times out of 10 it is the motherboard. These models suffer from an overheating issue that fries the video processor on the motherboard. Try first to attach to an external monitor and boot off the windows install disc. Wait until windows loads..if it does that is, then choose repair. follow the guide below and see if this thing sorts itself out...if it doesn't, most likely the motherboard is a gonner.....

Windows Start-up Errors
Step one, you need a Windows Installation CD. If you only have a recovery disk set like the ones from HP or Compaq they will not do what you need done. Under normal circumstances however, you can use a Dell disk because the Operating system is on a stand-alone disk. All retail versions are also acceptable as well as upgrade disks. For a rule of thumb, if the disk has the Microsoft hologram it should work.
While the computer is first starting up and you see the manufacturers splash screen, tap F12 (some computers it’s F9, others it may be another key, you may have to watch and see if the computer lists the key strokes for getting to the boot menu. If you still cannot find it, boot into the BIOS settings and change your boot order there. Save your settings and exit, the computer will now seek the cd rom as its boot source first.
Place your Windows disk in the computer and start it up. When you see the test at the top of the page “Press Any Key To Boot From CD” Just hit the space bar to activate. The next screen you will see will most likely be a Windows setup screen, when you see this press the “R” key to get to the recovery console. It will get there, it may take a little time, patience. Once it loads you will be given a choice of Windows installations, there should only be one, if there are more, always pick number one. It may ask for an administrators password, if you have not set this particular password, then just leave it blank and press enter. The next prompt you see is:
C:\Windows>
You need to type the following:
cd \
hit enter. Pay close attention to the spacing between the characters. There is a space between the character “d” and the “\”
You are now at the ROOT of the drive, this is where basic commands can be given and changed. You should now see the following:
C:\>
Now type the following:
CHKDSK /R
Hit the enter key.
The chkdsk /r command also includes the P command and will also look for lost recoverable information in bad sectors.
There are occasions depending on how corrupt the system is, that this process could take several hours, so be patient with it.
Now, after chkdsk has run type the following:
FIXBOOT
Hit the enter key.
It may prompt you with a warning, that’s ok, just continue. When fixboot has finished, type: EXIT hit enter and windows will reboot. When the system reboots, tap the F8 key during this time and you will see the multi-boot menu come up. Scroll to the title “Last Know Good Configuration” and hit the enter key. If you were having some simple drive errors this should have fixed them.

Computer Lock Down


Force your computer to start in Safe Mode. To do that, hold down the F5 key when you start up and keep holding it until you see that your PC has booted to Safe Mode. (Another way to do this is to hold down the F8 key during boot time until you’re presented with the Windows Startup Menu and then choose Safe Mode from the list of options presented there.

When you’re in Safe Mode Windows skips the Config.sys and Autoexec.bat files and loads a minimal set of drivers that lets your PC function at a basic level. Then do a systme restore while on safe mode......

Hope that helps..........

I cant identify the prolem


It looks like you may have a boot sector virus. A boot sector virus is one that infects the first sector, i.e. the boot sector, of a floppy disk or hard drive. Boot sector viruses can also infect the MBR. All disks and hard drives are divided into small sectors. The first sector is called the boot sector and contains the Master Boot Record (MBR). The MBR contains the information concerning the location of partitions on the drive and reading of the bootable operating system partition.

When disinfecting a boot sector virus, the system should always be booted from a known clean system disk. On a DOS-based PC, a bootable system disk can be created on a clean system running the exact same version of DOS as the infected PC. From a DOS prompt, type:
    SYS C:\ A:\
and press enter. This will copy the system files from the local hard drive (C:\) to the floppy drive (A:\).
If the disk has not been formatted, the use of FORMAT /S will format the disk and transfer the necessary system files. On Windows 3.1x systems, the disk should be created as described above for DOS-based PC's. On Windows 95/98/NT systems, click Start | Settings | Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs and choose the Startup Disk tab. Then click on "Create Disk". Windows 2000 users should insert the Windows 2000 CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, click Start | Run and type the name of the drive followed by bootdisk\makeboot a: and then click OK. For example:
    d:\bootdisk\makeboot a:
Follow the screen prompts to finish creating the bootable system disk. In all cases, after the creation of the bootable system disk, the disk should be write protected to avoid infection.

Once the OS loads, run your anti-virus software and it should clean the virus.

Should this not help, I'm afraid the only other alternative would be to reformat the HDD and reinstall XP again from a bootable disc.

Hope that helps..

Rebooting


Random rebooting, without know the history of your PC all I can do is give you a list of things to try and look for. The first thing I would do is check the basics, if that turns up nothing then the only option left is to removing variables one at a time. Obvious things to look for: - Physically remove and clean the processor heat sink. Make sure the area directly underneath the CPU fan is clean of dust; you have to remove it usually to make sure. When you reattach the heatsink take the opportunity to clean off the old and reapply new thermal grease. Use sparingly to ensure excess material doesn?t get on the CPU pins or the motherboard. - If you have a video card with its own heatsink and/or fan make sure it is free of dust. Make sure the fan runs freely and forcefully. It usually takes a can of compressed air to clean the dust underneath the fan, in some cases it requires disassembly. - Make sure all connectors are snugly plugged into their sockets. - Make sure all cooling fans, especially the power supply are running smoothly and forcefully. - Vacuum out case air vents and blow out dust from all secondary heatsinks and around the memory modules. - If your computer is plugged into a power strip or UPS try plugging it directly into a tested wall socket. - With the computer running try wiggling where the power cord plugs into the PC and the wall socket. If nothing turns up the next step is to make this computer as basic as possible. Disconnect any secondary drives, all USB devices, hubs, ports, printers anything you can remove and still have the PC boot. Don?t assume something couldn?t possibly cause this, making assumptions works against you. Run the machine in the basic mode and see if the problem persists. If it doesn?t don?t assume its one of the things you removed, replace the items one by one remembering it could be a power problem that only manifests itself when lots of stuff is plugged in. If the problem persists try these one at a time: - Typically your system BIOS will have a safe or factory reset mode, set it to that making note of the setting you had originally. - Try removing the hard drive and boot via a CD (Windows install or a diagnostic disk will do). - If you have a plug in video card try using the motherboards built-in video or another know good video card. - Test or preferably replace your power supply with a known good supply. - Try new memory. - At this point we?re probably left with just the processor and motherboard which means unless you have spares around you?ll need to start considering if its time to upgrade to a new motherboard and/or processor. Also if you haven?t done so already you should immediately backup (and test) your important files stored on your computer. The random shut downs are dramatically increasing the chance your hard drive will suffer damage or data corruption. I hope this helps but let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.

Asus P3V 4X DIP Switch problem


Hello. This is more a software related issue. If it were from the processor itself you couldn't power on or received weird error during Power ON Self Check. If the processor was overcloaked windows will indead try to start but fail. Therefore, if you know you haven't overcloaked the processor you should try to reinstall a clean copy of windows by booting the computer with the windows installation CD. Hope this helps, good luck and always remember to rate the solutions received from this site :)
