  • 1. HP ze4800 powing problem
    Can anyone suggest what might be going on here with this problem.. My ze4800 was working fine on both AC and Battery. A few days ago it suddenly switched off whilst running on AC power, (the battery was in place also). I pressed the power button and the computer started to boot up, but then stopped just before windows launched and hung there with a blank screen. All I did then was remove the battery pack and it continued booting up and worked perfectly. The moment I put the battery back in - it just switched off again. I've tried charging the battery by leaving the AC connected for 24 hours, all that happens is the amber light flashes. Attempting to power up on batteries only achieves nothing, it just seems completely dead. Still it powers up fine on AC only. Can anyone help? This battery was working perfectly just a week ago. I've tried the usual, pressing and holding the power switch and pressing the reset button but nothing works. Thanks Bob
  • 2. HP Pavilion Preinstalled Software
    Hi, most of you probably know how each HP PC comes with a bunch o junk and you have to get rid of them manually? I have this weird folder called 'online services' under start - all programs. Inside the folder contains shortcuts to setups of aol msn, netscape etc., then there is that Easy Internet Sign-up program. I was able to uninstall 'easy internet sign-up' under remove/install but I was unable to find Online Services there. Does that mean non of those aol, msn, netscape are installed? Can i just go directly t the c:\programs files and manualy delete the online services folde without leaving any junks in my computer And there is also this "Wildgames". I have never tried the because spybot says they're spyware. Are those games fun

  • 4. HP OfficeJet 6210/7210/PSC 750 printers & Windows Server 2003 w/Terminal Services
    Greetings, I'm trying to help a client setup a Windows Server 2003 platform to host their application to support their furniture stores. One store has a HP OfficeJet 6210, the other has an OfficeJet 7210 printer. I am attempting to setup support for each store so they can use Terminal Services/Remote Desktop into the server to use their application, yet still have the ability to print to their local HP OfficeJet printers. I'm finding out that Windows Server 2003 Terminal Services is not picking up their printers when logging into via Remote Desktop, and my attempts to add the appropriate drivers on the server have been less than successful. Based on my reasearch on the internet, it appears that HP does not produce drivers for "Server" based platforms for consumer level inkjet printers (Nevermind the "Office" part of the "OfficeJet" name). The store with the OfficeJet 7210 is running Windows XP Professional and the store with the OfficeJet 6210 is running Windows XP Home. Their respective pritners are installed locally and work just fine. How do I get these HP printers to cooperate with Terminal Services under Windows Server 2003? The client is also wanting to be able to access their application from home as well, and they have an DeskJet 450 & PSC 750 All-in-one printer. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you Daniel
  • 5. Proliant DL360 SCSI Disk/Controller question
    Hello, I just bought a used DL360 server. When powered on, the two SCSI disks display red light with an "X" on it. The smart array controller does not see any drives. The diagnostic software reports, "Controller is not configured. No configuration for array acceleration board". Do all these symptoms point to bad drives? I would appreciate any other comments. Regards. Ash

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.

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.
