Having problems with your Compaq Alpha Server 1000, 400MHZ (54-24799-01) Processor ?

I have a COMPAQ 1000 Alpha computer running OPENVMS 7.2 and recently the system has not been able to access the hard drive. I am able to see the device intermittently but it fails after a short period of time. I also have intermittent trouble with the cdrom reading.


Answers :

You have not provided much to go on here. Is the system up and running or do you have only a single drive? You should be able to do a "SHO ERR" and see any errors logged to the errlog that will indicate the hardware issue. Using "anal/err" or Clue, you should get the error details. Please post what you find here and I'll provide suggestions.

Check the errlog files using CLUE or Anal/ERR. There should be some entries there that will give us a clue. Since more than one drive is effected, I'd be looking toward a controller failure. \015\012\015\012Dan ... Compaq Alpha Server 1000, 400MHZ (54-24799-01) Processor

BIOS Crash My EEE PC was having BIOS problems such as not seeing the USB devices when attached and it would just start malfunctioning during use of the USB devices.

The power light comes on, sometimes the WIFI light briefly lights up, but I get nothing on the screen period.
