  • 1. HP dx2250 disable onboard video and install nVIDIA GeForce 6200 256MB DDR PCI Dual VGA
    I have an HP Compaq dx2250 desktop and need to install an nVIDIA GeForce 6200 256MB DDR PCI Dual VGA card. The desktop is runing windows XP. I shut down and install the new video card. Windows boots and I put in the driver disk and install the nVIDIA card drivers. I uninstall the ATI onboard video card in the add/remove programs and diable it in device manager. I reboot and go into the BIOS and change the seetings to boot first from PCI (it was set to PCIEx and the other option is OnBoard VGA). I save and the computer reboots, the signal from the onboard VGA is all white - I move the VGA connection to the new card and neither port will work. Any ideas? Thanks.
  • 2. LaserJet 4000 printing too far down the page
    I have a Laserjet 4000 and I am printing on form paper. The problem is the printer prints about 1/2" farther down the page than it should so the print does not fit in the space on the form. What I am printing is 1 or 2 pages from pre-existing large PDF files where some pages need to be reprinted. These files print correctly on the big HP printers, so I cannot reformat the output. Is there any way to adjust the feed or something so it will print where it should on the form? Any ideas on why it would print correctly on all printers but this one?
  • 3. HP4250 - authorisation software to control printer use & facilitate accounting?
    Printers larger than the 4250 appear to come with accounting capability - you can assign passwords to groups or individuals which thereby allows you to permit use of the machine to authorised users and to account for machine use. The 4250 does not, as far as I can tell, include such capability natively. Is there any software for Windows (98 and probably then XP, later) which adds this functionality? All I really need is the authorisation feature, accounting would be useful but secondary. I would envisage this working such that, having clicked OK in the print dialogue, you then get prompted for a password. Thanks for any pointers.
  • 4. Visualize C200, no serial Console
    Hi, we have a Visualize C200 w/o any Graphics Adapter; it's Console is a 700/96. However, some time ago the Console stopped to work. It's connected to the 1. serial port of the C200. We exchanged the cable and the Terminal itself (both with known working ones), but there still is no output on the Console. According to the Docs, if I got it correctly, the machine is supposed to *always* send some Data to the Serial Port 1 during boot (and e.g. allow to change the boot device). However, as mentioned, there is no output. Despite of that, the machine boots and works OK. Does anyone have a hint? I'd really like to get the console working again. MTIA! Cheers, _ralf_

hp proliant DL580 G3 -illegal opcode

Postby steven acer » Thu, 18 Oct 2007 19:03:41 GMT

i got a new hp proliant G3 P38 server with 4xAMD64 proc and 18Gb of
BIOS is v2006.08.08 ( latest ), smart array controller 6i.
i tried to install linux redhat 4 U4 x86_64 and it crashed spitting a
red screen on reboot - the installation was successful as far as i
red screen says :

illegal opcode
EAX=00007CFE            EBX=00007C00
ECX=00000007            EDX=00000180
EBP=0000FBFA            ESI=000007BE            EDI=00000800
DS=0000                 ES=0000
FS=0000                 GS=0004
CS:EIP=0000:0000835A            SS:ESP=1000:0000B000

i can't think of anything other than BIOS update or storage controller
update, and these are actually up to date.
HP support guys weren't of so much help, so if anyone anything that
could help and i really mean anything
suggestions,guidance,thoughts... it would really save my day or better
to say my week since it's been 3 days i'm battling with the issue !

Did you ever find a resolution to the illegal opcode red screen error?
One of our servers got the same error recently after our last patch
cycle in January. I opened an HP case, and they only came back with
update BIOS and controller firmware.

Thanks for any help.

Hey, hope this helps because I just had to register to post this :P

I had the same thing occur tonight... which freaked me out a bit.

I managed to fix the problem though (this was on a HP Proliant DL385

It seems like it arises from the server trying to boot from its HDD -
and when it looks to the address where the bootable code should be (i.e.
grub/initrd whatevr). And it gets something which isn't bootable - so it
replies 'illegal opcode' and hangs. 

So I booted into Ubuntu using a 7.04 live CD (taking note to use a
64bit one), and from there I used grub to regenerate an appropriate

grub> device (hd0) /dev/cciss/c0d0
grub> root(hd0)
grub> setup ( hd0,0)

Once that was done the server stopped ecountering the 'illegal opcodes'
which were the result of it looking at the corrupted MBR/whatever, and
seeing something other than a properly configured bootable image.

So then instead of getting a red-screen of death, I got the grub menu.

Sorry I wrote this the other night and then fell asleep at my desk
before hitting send.

I need to share some impressions.

2.HP Proliant DL380 G3 slow shutdown


I've a Proliant DL380 G3 rackmounted server running on dual Xeon processor, 
2GB RAM and 4x36GB HD configured in RAID 5 and running Win Server 2003. My 
problem is, whenever I tried to shutdown the system, it takes ages .. 
exceeding 15 minutes each time. The system was setup by HP engineer during 
the installation and I don't think it was that slow. I know that RAID 5 
will slow down the shutdown process, but when it exceeds 15 minutes .. 
there should be something wrong with it .. BTW, the server has Trend Micro 
Server Protect running if that a matter. TIA for any advice given.

3.HP Proliant ML 370 G3

I just bought a new Proliant ML 370 G3.  It came with 2-256 ddr memory
installed.  HP had a free memory upgrade promotion for 2-256 memory
sticks, for a total of 1024 Mb memory.  2-256 memory was already
installed and the extra 2-256 sticks where packaged and boxed.  The
original 2-256 memory chips are installed in slots A1,A2.  I put the
extra 2-256 memory chips in the next available slots B3,B4.  When I
power on the server I get the lovely continous beep.  I take out the
extra 2-256 memory chips and the server boots wonderfully showing 512
memory.  I take the original memory out and put in the extra memory in
slot A1, A2,  The server boots fine.  I add the original memory in
slot B3,B4 and I get the nice contiuous Beep.  All four memory chips
are the same, and Identical.  both work as 1 pair 2-256 but not
together as 2 pair 4-256 for 1024 total.  Is there a setting in the
bios I have to enable for adding extra memory?  all the manuals just
say to plug and play so to speak.  No mention of jump setting or
anything.  I would welcome any suggestions on this, before I call hp
tech support.



4.Proliant DL380 G3 server questions

I just got a surplused DL380 G3 (3.06GHz) but I'm not sure if it's
working as it was damaged in shipping. It was advertised as "no OS" so
I can't tell from network activity if it's actually running.

It has a RILOE II card in it, but I get no video output on either the
RILOE or the internal VGA adapter, even when I pull the RILOE. It does
seem to power up, and if I pull one of the two 512MB DIMMs I get beeps
so I _THINK_ the main CPU is running.

Is there a way to reset the unit back to factory defaults, and should
I be trying to talk to it over the Ethernet interface in the RILOE, or
from a local console, or from the serial port? Right now I just see
nothing at all when I power it up, but it does seem to be going
through POST. It's kinda hard to tell for sure though because every
single peripheral in it is intelligent - for all I know, the main CPU
is dead and the RAID card and system health processor are running
their own diagnostics indepedently.
