Hard Disk Failure - Device Scsi Ultra1

I've inherited an older windows 2000 server. It acts as a co-location box. Recently, i've been unable to access it until it is rebooted. Today, i checked out the event logs and saw it filled with error messages. Some of them said: "the device, devicescsiultra1, did not respond within the timeout period. " And others said: "dmio: disk harddisk5 block 562598323 (mountpoint m: uncorrectable write error" many of these two occured in the last two days. Another message i received a little while ago said:
"The device, devicescsipnp6801, did not respond within the timeout period. "

Can anyone tell me what it looks like the problem is, or could be? I'm thinking that a hard drive has gone bad (or is going bad).

Device That Can Connect 2 Ethernet Cables Into 1 Modem

Is there a device that can connect 2 ethernet cables into 1 modem that isnt a network switch or a router?

Answer:- yes its called a hub, basically its an old fashioned switch but has no intelligence so both pc's get half the band width.

Delayed Write Failure Error

Recently, i purchased a western digital premium es 500gb external hard drive. I formatted the hd from fat32 to ntfs, and reinstalled all the original software that shipped with the device. Transfering files from my pc to the my book works fine. However, when i attempt to transfer large files (usually above 2gb) from the my book to my pc, i receive a "delayed write failure" error message. The device stops responding, and i have to power it down and restart it. I am running windows xp sp2, and vista ultimate. I have experienced this problem in both operating systems. The device is connected to a usb 2. 0 pci controller card i purchased two years ago. All the ports have worked fine in the past, and i have never had problems with other peripherals connected to the port. All connections appear to be secure.microsoft kb article 908673 discusses this issue and is releasing a hotfix (kb908673) w/xp sp3. I found and installed the hotfix, and continue to have the same problem. Has anyone experienced similar problems with an external hard drive? Does anyone know of a solution for this issue?

Error 0200: Failure Fixed Disk 0

It is hard for me to throw away things that have been working. I am the owner of two dell inspiron notebooks. One is an 1100 (2003) and the one that is currently giving me the problem is a 2500 (2002). So you can see who you are dealing with. I upgraded the memory on both machines to 1g and 512mb respectively, not that long ago and they were working fine. Then i got this brainstorm to try to teach myself ubuntu and wiped out xp on the 2500 and burned an iso image of a ubuntu version and it was working ok except i couldn't connect to the internet even via ethernet cable. Time passed and then by the time i came back to it - there was a problem that i really can't recall - i posted on some other sites and the bottom line was, i thought i needed a new hard drive. So i purchased a compatible drive (i did a fair amount of research) and got the drive about 2 months ago and just tried to get it going this morning. I replaced my hitachi 20 gb drive with a seagate momemtus 5400. 3 40gb drive. When i boot up, the initial screen does show that it recognizes my new drive (model st940815a).

Hard Drive Failure - Unknown Error

When vista loads, it gives me a message telling me one of my hard drives need to be checked for consistency. If i let it run, it either freezes, or aborts with some kind of unknown error at some point (happens at different points in the process, randomly). When i finish booting into vista, the hard drive is there, but it needs to be formatted before it can be used. If i keep letting chkdsk run is there a chance it may be able to repair whatever the issue is? It seems to get progressively further, but how far away from completing chkdsk it is, i have no idea. Edit: actually, i'm going download wd lifeguard tools, and see if i can scan the drive first, and see what it tell me. Will update when done.

Modem Connection Error

I am trying to get into the internet for the first time into a freshly installed windows 98 system using netzero. I have used 3 different modems (however the drivers i used were for win 95, one had win 98 and the other had win2k). When i try to log i could hear the modem trying to get in, then its verifying the username and password. Then i get the following message with all three modems:

Connection error (645) internal authentication error. Your computer's modem or network settings are not properly configured. The phone line works. I checked the modem in the device manager and it states there that it is working properly. I tried changing the modem to a differnt pci location but then my computer began to act us (crashing and not shutting down when i wanted to shut down). Right now i am going to install a newer version of internet explorer and try to set it up. Can you guys please give me suggestions on how i could solve this problem.

Error: This Device Could Not Start ( Code 10 )

I have 895mb of ram on my system now, but i started with 1gb? Anyways, i kept getting blue screens and they told me to use a new video adapter. I got a new video card and it reccomends 1gb of ram. It has a vga adapter that you have to connect your monitor to for it to work. I went into device manager and it said "this device could not start (code 10). " Then after some lagg, the computer froze. Is this a ram problem? And if it is, can i just buy one stick of 2gb ram instead of adding 1gb to the current 895mb? I have windows vista home basic 32-bit. Int pent 4 proc. 3. 0ghz. I went into system setup when it booted, and changed the primary video card to pci-e, which is what the new video card runs on. The video card is the radeon hd 3650 1gb ddr2. This is like my 3rd topic, i know. Bare with me, i keep running into like 2 different problems every day.

I/o Device Error - Maxtor Diamondmax

I have had my diamondmax 10 200gb sata for about a year now and its been a very good buy. However recently it stoopped working and i get an i/o device error message when i try to open it.

I have a lot of important data on there and cant afford to spend getting it back. Does anyone know what this error is and how to fix it? If not what is the best software to use to recovery the data.

Usb Pen Drive I/o Device Error

I've had an iomega 256mb pen drive for about 18 months now, and whenever i try to access it in my computer it says: the request could not be performed because of an i/o device error. I can't format the drive either. This happens on all of the 3 computers i've tried it on. I'm not worried about getting the data on it back, i've got backups of it. Anyone got any ideas on how to fix it?

Error: Unable To Enumerate Usb Device On Port 6

I recently bought two ps/2 to usb converter adaptors from ebay, and they're not working with our keyboard (logitech access keyboard), mouse (old logitech ball mouse with only two buttons), or the laptop (toshiba with 512mb ram, about 2ghz speed, two usb ports). The laptop is running windows xp pro. We've tried scanning for new hardware, and we tried booting the computer with both plugged in. Neither responds at all. The only signs of life are the num lock and function lock lights on the keyboard (they toggle like they're supposed to. But the caps lock and scroll lock do not). Any ideas to get these working?

I've also tried them with my 3 year old acer laptop (1gb ram, about 2ghz cpu, more than enough usb ports). This one's running ubuntu 9. 04. Similar (non)results. But with the keyboard plugged in, if i mash the keys, every so often xp will give a error message (printed to the first virtual terminal) like this:

[33237. 360137] hub 1-0:1. 0: unable to enumerate usb device on port 6

The digits in the square brackets change every time. And sometimes it says this:-

[Numbers. Numbers] hub 1-0:1. 0: connect-debounce failed, port 6 disabled

But i really only bought these to work with the windows xp laptop.

Usb Flash Crashes With Device Not Recognized Error

My trusty 8gb trancend pico keychain usb drive died today as i was backing it up, oh the irony. I didn't loose anything i don't have stashed in other places, but it i am wondering if i can try and grab whatever is there and not corrupt with some software? Most of the free-ware and trial stuff i have tried doesn't work unless the drive is assigned a drive letter, but it's not recognized by either of my systems now, is this a wasted effort or is there something free that will mount it and get what is readable?

Error - Reboot And Select Proper Boot Device

I had a few problems getting pc to run (namely, i somehow lost the jumper for the bios pins on the motherboard. Because i had no jumper, it kept running in recovery mode. Took me a while to figure out, too). I don't know if it matters, but i popped out the battery as some instructions stated. I waited ten minutes and then placed the battery back, positive side up, which is what i remembered it being before i removed it. I only did that because i was at a loss at what else could be done to get the system running. Now, the system boots up fine and recognizes all devices, except. The problem is that after the post, an error pops up. "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device"

I had made a floppy that had the upgraded bios on it and had stuck it in the system before powering it up. I know the floppy works, because it worked on another system. I tried installing windows xp without the upgraded bios to see if it would work, and it did. I suppose that means that the cd drive works, but i have no way to tell if the floppy drive does. From what i can see in the [f2] bios setup utility, it is recognized. I don't see why the floppy drive wouldn't work. After all, it's just a floppy drive, with power & connection to mobo. The boot order is floppy, hard drive, cd-rom. And no matter what i do, the computer keeps throwing the error at me.

The Driver Detected A Controller Error On Device Scsi Adpu3201

Server 2003 has the on-board dell perc 5/i for hard-drives. An add-in adaptec u320 scsi pci-x card. Only a quantum lto 2 tape drive is hooked up to the adaptec. This error started popping up and is logged every day. The last 2 people that administered this server are no longer around. I'm not exactly sure when the tape drive was installed. The problem is, i cannot roll back the driver, because no previous driver exists. I also downloaded the latest driver from quantum, which is the same exact one. If i disable the port with the tape drive, the error doesn't seem to appear.could this be caused if the scsi isn't terminated? This is an off-site server, but not currently doing any backups so it's not a hugely important issue, but something i would like to get cleared up.

Connecting Cable Modem To At&t Modem

How to connect a cable modem to an at&t modem?

Answer:- if they are actually both modems you don't connect them together at all. Modems take in signals from the isp and convert them to digital that you computer understands. Since it only takes one to do that why would you even attempt to connect two modems?

If you mean you have an at&t gateway/router (which has a modem inside) then that is a different question. However, there is also no way to use that router in a cable system as the modem installed in it is for dsl not cable. There are routers which will connect to a cable modem or a dsl modem and allow multiple computer use. Just get the correct router if that is what you want or need.

Error: ' Not Enough Usb Bandwidth ' Sagem Fast 800 Usb Modem

I have a new 8mb adsl connection and received a sagem fast800 usb adsl modem with it, the modem works fine but i cannot plug any other usb devices in at the same time. I keep getting an error message stating there is not enough usb bandwidth, i read on bt's site that if you plug your other devices in first and then the modem the modem will only take what bandwidth thats left instead of using up most of it. I try to plug my other devices in first (cyborg rumble joypad) and then my modem and the pad is recognised along with the modem but the modem no longer connects and gives a " remote computer did not respond" msg which sounds like an isp issue but only happens when i have done the above. Also if i plug my joypad in first and then the modem, once i remove the modem the computer restarts str8 to bios. Ive also tried my front header usbs and nothing, so as long as im not on the internet i can use any other usb devices (leaving me with a pointless 8mb connection), motherboard is ga-k8nmf-9 with nvidia nforce 4 chipset and latest drivers.

How To Make Hardware To Install Automatically Without "found New Hardware Wizard"?

Any help would be appreciated.

Intermittent Boot Failure

The problem is intermittently the system powers up but fails to even attempt to boot - no bios beeps, and bios and vid. Bios screens not displayed. Drives spin up ok. Have tried different case and psu (in fact system is currently in borrowed case). The system only ever fails to boot if the system is cold-started - the system warm-reboots ok. Tried different ram, had m/b replaced once, new m/b been returned to dealer where they (supposedly) found no problems when tested with other kit and with my psu, but system not been professionaly tested as a whole. Have also tried different graphics card, removing modem and sound card, running system from hdd only, but still having problems. All connectors are firmly seated. There are no config options in bios or jumpers for ram and the cpu is set up correctly and automatically. Have used 375 and 300w psus with system (300w seemed better then system started playing up again)
Nvidia geforce4 mx440 agp8x graphics card (8x is supported by m/b), and have also tried geforce2 4x. The os may be irrelevant, but i've tried winxppro, win2000, winnt4, mandrake linux 9 and a linux distro that boots from cd (knoppix). All drivers installed ok. Won't even bother with win9x/me because i hate it.

System Failure ( Restart )

Random Power Failure

Lately, my pc has been randomly shutting off. I thought it might be a software issue, so i went to reformat my hd when it powered off. Here i am with a box w/ no os that keeps shutting off every 5 minutes. Every other computer in my house works fine, so it isn't an electricity issue. I also replaced the power supply, which cost me $60. What else could possible be causing theis odd phenomenon, because i would like my pc back.

Bios Flash Failure

This acer aspire m5100 desktop was having freezing issues, so i decided to update the bios to see if that would fix things. The flash was going well, until the very end where the status bar showed red, indicating failure to write at those sections. The computer rebooted and failed to post. Fans spin and everything, but nothing shows up on the monitor and no beeping from the motherboard. What do you guys think? Game over? Or is there some way to revive the computer?
