I recently bought a second hand perc5 controller that until now i didnt used at all.
So i hooked it up to my computer (P5W64WSmobo) and made a big VD of 8 hd's.
everything went okay until i got a BSOD when installing vista64 bit or server2003.
I thought it was the controller so i took it out,trying to install again..having extra bsods all the time i figured out it was one of my adata ddr2 sticks who caused the problem.
So i removed them,installed the perc5 again and on boot i got an error saying the memory on the controller is broken.
I get crazy and reboot and nothing happens at all anymore..no post.
So i remove the memory on the controller and use a ddr2 stick i had laying around and the systems posts,but no more sign of the controller (i think this is because i dont used the correct mem voor the controller).
i think the memory on the controller is broken,how do i replace it?where can i get it?dell support is **** because i can't locate the service sticker on the controller :rolleyes:.
Or do you guys think the entire controller is f***ed?
Any advice what went wrong?
Dell machines and hardware can be picky about memory, so I would try with another memory stick, dell approved if possible:)
anyone has 256MB ddr2! pc3200 laying around?:d i think it's even ECC
bought a stick,lets hope it solves the problem!
and also thx for the other thing..
just make sure that it needs ECC;)
bought the stick,alternate took 4 weeks to deliver
stuf still doenst boot,i think the perc is dead
any idead left?
bought other perc
system booted perfect,seems the perc is dead,damn.
how did you pay? bought it new or used?
bought it new,still packed
on ebay,was around 120€ with cables without bbu (but still had this)
it has lsi firmware and updated bios.
results are coming soon,i dint know disks bigger then 4 tera needed GPT partition...
