    SCSI can run HDD, or tape and many things

    we run ultra for years, back when.
    why are you doing old UW SCSI.?

    pure raw wild guess.
    the PC is 20 year old
    the HDD died 15 years ago
    and found this rig for $1 at a garage sale
    Ultra-320 SCSI ? from year 2003?

    remove it and put in SSD 2.5" solid state drive (SATA) and boot from that.
    end story, join the modern world?
    SCSI is now dead, tech. as in fully retired.
    we use SAS or fast SSD. now.

    if the HDD is dead say so.
    post symptoms and ask for help,ok?
    that is why this forum exists to diagnose problems.
    test #1 on PC that seems to have power and does with BIOS screens working
    the HDD must be heard to spin. (and all fans)

    ask how. (i own a 5$ stethoscope a TOOL)
    no spin ,no joy, possible.
    it has motor inside, the hdd controller
    sends a command to the hDD to spin up
    turned on, in magical SCSI land
    we can even sequence say 5 HDD drives to spin up 1 at a time to not overload the PSu.

    that is all controlled via the SCSI card
    own Bios screens. prompted at power on in fact.
    the SCSI card has its own menus inside its own ROM.firmware. we go there and check the drive out. (might show HDD dead in fact)

    NO PC told no scsi card told.

    here is mine spinning up now.

    if HDD click like mad , the HDD is bad.
    like this.*****.mp3

    post of photo or left side inside this PC.
    lid off PC pulled off. (then add a photo)
    then we can talk turkey. (to brass tacks)

    post a problem, and ask for help
    what PC
    what OS
    and what fails. tell all that.
    even tell what works good too?

  • Anonymous Jan 19, 2021
    the reason nobody talks SCSI now is that it is now retired. (eol)
    yes some very very old PCs workstations had this, OOBE day1. sure. have one in my attic full of thick dust. old and slow.
    and for sure servers. old.

I typically advise that drivers be downloaded from the manufacturer's website. The help desk may be able to advise you as to a download link. help centre on 011 541 3300 or email [email protected]

This is a company based in South Africa.

Although other websites may offer drivers, I cannot assure you such would work nor assure you that such downloads would be safe. I would certainly make a system restore point prior to downloading or installing any such drivers in any case.

you just need to buy an adoptor, like "1 fits all". but you also can use the cable that you charge it if the head gets off

Please visit the website below for calibration or support. Looks like you have to send your unit away to have it calibrated. I would send them an e-mail enquiring about cost details before posting the unit to them. And double checking the postal address where the unit needs to be sent.

Sounds like power board. Do you get a blinking like at power up? If so, blinking code will indicate problem. Contact store or mfr. Could still be under warranty.

You would have to dismantle the laptop and remove the BIOS battery for 5 mins then re-insert it to reset the BIOS to factory setting. I found this reset option (picture below) online but have never tried it ..............
