Kayak XAs 7/500 MT: switch off the I/O fan warning light



  • 1. XP and 970CXI printer
    I have a Dell 4500 with XP connected to a HP 970CXI printer. When I try printing, the printer will print only half a page and then start a second page with only partial data on it. Finally it will spit out 1 or 2 pages with a line or two. Sounds like a driver problem, but I've reloaded drivers a couple of times and completely unloaded the HP software and downloaded the latest off of the HP site for XP. If I connect it to my Win98 machine, it works fine. Any ideas on how I can get this HP970 CXI to work with XP Thanks for any help!!

    Friends in Technology I have been touting HP PCs for years. As a corporate buyer I have purchased many over the years but the buck stops here. I had a small problem with a Pavilion 735n which tech support could not resolve ( Tech support at Hp seems to be lay people with a DR PC software program) I requested a supervisor and tested him with the question "Define Dynamic RAM" which he could not, had never heard of such a thing. Well, the problem still exists but I don't think HP will for long. Thanks for letting me vent!!!

Kayak XAs 7/500 MT: switch off the I/O fan warning light

I've got 3 dual-CPU Kayak's and like them (those are my first dual-CPU
PCs ever and I run OpenBSD on them). However from the one of them
I had to remove the fan and the speaker at the very bottom (facing

Now the small BW LCD-display which should normally show a smiley,
shows the warning about a failed I/O fan and a nearby red light is

Is there a way to switch this warning off, as I don't really need that

I've found nothing in the PhoenixBIOS (which I've up'ed to HU 11.11 US)

Thank you

there just is no way. Instead of fiddling around with an error message 
that appears for a reason, rather replace the fan.

Nope. The fan was there for a reason which besides cooling the 
PCI/ISA/AGP cards is cooling the chipset and the IDE controller. You say 
you like the machines, so if you like them enough that you want to have 
them running also in a few years just replace the fan...

Ok, thanks. I've put that fan back and realized that it wasn't broken
(that was the reason I had removed it) - it just starts after a delay...

I have a A1520N. The Blue Light on the On Off switch stays on when the
computer shuts down. It normally shut off when the computer shut down.
The computer is really shut down because when I hit the switch the
computer boots up.

3.HP Kayak XAs ATX power supply conversion


I want to replace the noisy power supplies in my 3 HP Kayak XAs boxes 
with new, quiter, ATX units.  The problem is it looks like the Kayaks 
have proprietary 24 pin power connectors on their motherboards.

I have actually tried hooking up an ATX power supply using a generic 20 
pin to 24 pin converter with no luck.  When I tried this I simply got an 
orange power light but no other life to the machine.

Two things that would help in this case are:

1) Real HP 24 pin type to ATX 20 pin type converter.
2) The pin out schematics for the 24 pin motherboard connector.

Has anyone had any luck with this sort of conversion?

Googling and news searches have come up pretty dry.



4.Designjet 500 - cuts off bottom right corner

We downloaded and installed the drivers for a W2K PC. When we print to the
DJ500 from a program called ISqFt, it cuts out a diagonal section of the
lower right corner of the drawing. We have another W2K machine, same
drivers, same setup that does not. How can we fix this?
