Gen 9, system, nice. that 4 CPU server is boss. (not pregnant cow) but super keen.
and can be had for 25 to 1 on the dollar. 200 bucks. (sans SSA disks)
that Seagate is 3.5inchs 15k RPM fast SAS drive that raid card has huge powerful migration and recovery firmware SMARTS, vast smarts. the card cage is cabled to the raid card with sas cable sets. that same SAS backplane can use SATA HDD but not in same array. separate Sata controls are a subset of SAS, so there.
it's all in the great Dell manuals OP use google web translate on our forum.

  • Seagate does not supply drivers for SATA drives because hard drives themselves do not require specific device drivers. Operating systems such as Windows XP/2000 may not automatically recognize the SATA controller in the system. This is especially true if the hardware is newer than the operating system.
  • Try ti find the exact driver for another O/S then install it in "compatibility mode" , it may work so

    petrumusic it is not a PC it's a raid server
    full blown raid.hardware all. no sata.
    the hdd is sas,not sata and no xp or 2000
    however sata drive can run on sas controler with special cables,but that is off topic SAS is IT.
    Download and run to extract contents, then run C:\Openmanage\windows\setup.exe. Choose Custom to make sure that Storage Management is being installed (if firmware/drivers are out of date, the storage portion may be disabled from a default installation). Don't try to second guess what does/does not need to be installed, or it probably won't work, and then a reboot may be necessary to remove o repair it Smiley Happy (OMSA will require SP2 to be installed on 2008.)
    translated late. 1-1/2 years late bingo the OS is there.
    "Cordial greeting, I have a DELL PowerEdge 6950 server, it has a RAID 5, in which the OS is, at the moment I failed the windows and I could not fix it since the Windows Server 2003 X64 Enterprise does not recognize the hard disk the reference of the discs is SEAGATE Model ST373455SS. "(this SAS HDD, not SATA)
    I think you mean the PERC5
    not large 5 drive raid.
    or is it PERC6 with 5 SSA disks in raid5 mode.

    If you can help me sending a URL where you can download the drivers for these discs I would appreciate it. Thank you'

    or learn Google, 'dell poweredge support"

    first off this is not a PC, but server and as such has raid card or raid chip
    PERC5 is guess.(its optional)
    the OS only sees what the raid chip presents.
    you sould read your raid manual first ok>
    PERC 5 OR 6 CHIP.
    we then use the raid cards software or bios it has to make sure all disks are good
    this is step 1,
    if not the OS will see no RAID media at all.'

    ive no idea at all what is inside that server
    even special raid card can be fitted
    are you repairing a system?
    or building one from scratch?
    2 different answers.

    here is your support page.

    this covers it all 166 pages.
    1st google hit,btw.
    page 72 starts hdd and raid setup.
    read that now.

    only the raid controller can configure the array and or modify the raid class or add or remove a set of drivers.
    on most server there are ways
    1: raid bios setup, (crude)
    2: a windows application only from dell and very powerful.

    if say you had 5 driver array,
    and one goes bad it tells this,
    then you hot swap it old out ,new in.
    (if hot swap is enabled first)

    RAID management software
    win 2003 server OS
    has many drivers and appl's.


    IF ONLY ONE SAS drive say so
    but the controller needs to set it first

    see here,
    how to get to raid setup.

    The big issue with a production server is,
    to not go down
    and not have to raid bios to get reports
    or do service ever
    that is what windows, array managment does.
    Im HP guy
    Dell is same but alien to me, finding the bits.
    but hardware is clone of LSI raid
    im told dell needs OMSA

    the SAS drive caddly light flashes when drive is bad in a special way this is job one to learn the flash code and to run OMSA on running system. no need or desireE to reboot.

    here is OSMA,, 342 MB

    Download and run to extract contents, then run C:\Openmanage\windows\setup.exe. Choose Custom to make sure that Storage Management is being installed (if firmware/drivers are out of date, the storage portion may be disabled from a default installation). Don't try to second guess what does/does not need to be installed, or it probably won't work, and then a reboot may be necessary (OMSA will require SP2 to be installed on 2008.)
    some PERC must be firmware upgraded first
    read the spec on OSMA

    My big HP server, the HP array manager we can have it email me if a drive goes weak
    SMART failures, is that.
    all driver 99% go weak first .
    the smart PERC6 , monitors this full time.
    and works like a dream, as all real servers do.
    i have video server (plex)
    and a backup server, with huge array. raid 5

    as you can see RAID is a very complex subject.
    learn to some RAID cards (and chips)
    can not do 1 drive
    after all 1 is not raid
    others allow JBOD mode,
    and 1 disk is,

    to learn that read the spec on your controller
    perc 5 or 6 or what ever is in your server now.
    large set of options new, as like all servers have. (real)

    oops DRAC
    in HP it's Ilo.
    LOGIN to the Drac card and do status check.
    (its a simple remote monitor)
    look for drive or raid error there
    if it is there the card, or DRAC jack
    ALA, (RAC) card, and is option an worth having..
    7PCI-e slots nice.
    most of theses are PERc5 pci-E CARD
    with cables to the SAS drive array caged backplane.
    last of all, you (if only 1 drive)
    no perc is not JBOD
    1 disk must be set as raid0 zero
    or the HDD is invisible to the main OS
    or 5 disks, all raid 0 and shows as 5
    proof here

    of if this is new toy, 2006 used server,from the used car lot.
    then what (in bios turn off PXE)
    easy go into the raid menus' cold boot f2? bios
    or Enters the SAS Configuration
    Utility. See your SAS adapter
    User’s Guide
    for more information.

    and set that drive as raid0, save and exit ,reboot. now the disk is ready to be SEEN.
    the reboot,and load server 2003
    the boot windows sev.2003
    done. or load OSMA

    Perc5 actual, sas raid controller
    this must be setup first or all disks
    will be INVISAble TO THE OS , ANY OS.

SOURCE: Quitar Password de Bios de Pc Dell Optiplex GX100,

Hope you can read this. if not, GOOGLE...TRANSLATE.

Removing the PSWD jumper is the correct method of clearing the BIOS password. Removing the battery resets the CMOS.

Remove the power from your computer. Remove the battery. Remove the PSWD jumper. Wait!!!!

Keep power off the computer for at least 30 minutes, overnight is better.

Replace the battery. Plug the computer in. Do Not Reconnect the PSWD jumper.

Now reinstall your operating system and drivers. When finished, restart your system. If everything works and you want to redo the BIOS password, shut the computer down. Unplug the power. Remove the battery. WAIT.

Replace the PSWD jumper. Replace the battery. Plug in the power. Restart the computer, hitting "F2" as it open the BIOS setup page. Reset your password here. Esc to continue, Yes to save.

Good luck

SOURCE: Buens noches..tengo un monitor DELL2005FPW 20.1

Creo que tienen capas superpuestas de la misma imagen en su monitor. Prueba a revisar los cables doblados o dañados. Ver si hay dispositivos electromagnéticos cerca del monitor. Por una vez, intenta huir de la liberación de la energía de la pantalla. Para ello, desconecte el cable de alimentación del monitor y presione el botón de encendido en el monitor durante unos 15 segundos. Usted puede también intentar el control de la imagen en modo seguro de "Windows". si la imagen está muy bien allí, es necesario volver a instalar / actualizar los controladores de vídeo.

ENGLISH: I think you are having overlapping layers of same image on your monitor. Try checking the cables for bent or damaged pins. See if there are any electromagnetic devices near the monitor. For once, try releasing the flee power from the monitor. To do this, unplug the power cord of the monitor and press the power button on the monitor for about 15 seconds. You can also try checking the image in safemode of "Windows". if the image is fine there, you need to reinstall/update your video drivers.

Saludos, mi endeavor tiene Una vibracion fuerte cuando va de 20 a 40 millas.

saludos, tengo una mitsubishi endeavor 2005, la cual me estaba dando exactamente ese problema, cuando iba acelerando entre 20 y 40 da una vibracion muy fuerte, el problema esta en la transmision, eso lo causa la falta de liquido de transmision, cuando a la transmision le falta liquido hace ese fallo para indicarte que le falta y que debes completarlo, mi recomendacion es que lo revises lo antes posible y que le heches un aditivo para transmision, hice eso y se le quito inmediatamenteee, cuando la revise estaba seca no tenia casi nada de liquido de transmision.

Al conectar la maquina por puerto usb con sistema operativo windows 7,no carga el scaner, siempre da fallo en display de desconexion por lo que percibo no tiene controlador quisiera saber como lo obtengo...

Saludos aparentemente el problema esta es que el scanner no tiene drives para el windows 7. Te sugiero que vuelvas a la pagina de HP y trates de bajar con el sistema opertivo d Vista ya que este es el mas cercano al sistema que usas. Trata de sacar el programa en tu computadora , vuelves a instalarlo. Suerte!!!

Tengo una camioneta jeep grand cherokee, 97 que en la computadora me manda un mensage, coolant sensor bad y no lo e podido corregir y sale mas cuando hace mucho calor

Ese es un mensaje comun en este tipo de camionetas; tengo una '93 GC Limited 5.2L V8 y presento el mismo problema por algun tiempo.

Solamente hay dos cosas por hacer:
1. Desconecta el harness del sensor y dale una lavada con solvente dielectrico para contactos electricos. Previamente desconecta los bornes de la bateria.

2. En caso de que el procedimiento anterior no funcione, podriamos pensar que el sensor de refrigerante es el que esta da?ado, enviando una falsa se?al al VIC (Vehicle Information Center) que es el que te envia el fallo.

OJO que cuando desconectas los bornes de la bateria el ECU se resetea, con lo cual podriamos tambien probar que era un error antiguo almacenado.

Aqui hay un tema en una web Jeepera de Espa?a:

Espero que esto te sea de ayuda; recuerda calificar esta respuesta. Suerte.

Cuando lo instales, el proceso es facil, la unica cosa que es un poco mas dificil (Rhapsody no es un programa simple) es transferir musica la cual fue tu pregunta. Aqui esta la informacion en detalle:

Necesito el archivo wxpper/i386

Hola, soy Alex y estoy aqui para ayudarte con tu problema instalando windows xp home

Primero, el archivo esta en el disco de instalación de windows. Si el disco esta rayado, haz una copiar de windows en otro disco y instalar windows con ese. Si no esta rayado el disco, puede ser que tu cd rom no funciona bien. Si tienes otro CD-ROM, instalar eso.

Espero que solucione tu problema. Si tienes mas preguntas, pon en contacto conmigo. Un saludo

Cuales son tus fuentes?

Primero que nada, muchas gracias por tu pregunta y por darme la oportunidad de despejar (o ampliar) una duda tuya.

Cuando en un modelo de hardware dice que es la Serie 5100, significa que hay mas "subseries" de modelos en esa misma base de hardware, digamos que la 5100 es la básica y la 5160 la tienes tu y tiene un puerto de USB cuando la 5120 no la tiene. Es un ejemplo.

Otro, en cuanto a laptops HP. La serie Pavilion dv8000 tiene varios modelos, la dv8360 tiene 512 MB de RAM mientras que la dv8600 tiene 2GB y cuenta con bluetooth.

Las placas de hardware son una base para crear mas modelos, le quitan o le aumentan algo, pero fisicamente son similares.

Esto contesta tu pregunta?

Recibe un cordial saludo desde Mexico.
