Rescued Blade server from the Tip - how do I attach HDD's

Question: Rescued Blade server from the Tip - how do I attach HDD's

Hi there.

I managed to rescue a WORKING HP BL490c G6 Server Blade System 2X Intel Xeon E5540 CPU?s 72GB RAM from the local Tip !!! - some people have more money than sense.

Any idea how I'd go about neatly adding 4 - 8 HDD bays to this. Power of this server looks like it can easily replace my 2 NAS servers with a single "Box".

If it gets too messy I'll have complaints again !!!

Any ideas for a NEAT setup -- I'm reasonable with Carpentry and metalwork.

Preferred Solution: Rescued Blade server from the Tip - how do I attach HDD's

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Rescued Blade server from the Tip - how do I attach HDD's

I doubt that you'll find a lot of posters here with experience with this sort of hardware.

Just out of curiosity, I checked online. The blade is intended to work with two internal 2.5" SATA SSDs. It can support multiple SAS 2.5" drives if an optional controller is present. I didn't bother checking whether the SAS interface is one of the dual types that can also be used with SATA.

No idea what is possible, but it sounds like you wish to use the box in a way that God and HP never intended.

Okay my friend has this off brand blade server with no input devices (no floppy, no cd/dvd, etc). How does this person install a OS onto it?

Answer:Blade server question

On the HP blades ive worked with they came with some special cable that plugs in and outputs a usb slot, a VGA and a serial port.

Slot the server into the enclosure and use the supplied cables and connect up a external DVD drive using that weird looking cable. That is the simplest way.

This may be different on some models i have only worked with a limited number of blade based servers.

If you dont have an enclosure im not sure what you can do lol, im sure someone can help you with more experience with blades than me

Hello Guys,

I play a lot with virtualization in my home lab, and have noticed that I am always running out of RAM in my hosts.

To solve this, I initially looked at just buying more RAM for my servers as generally the CPUs are generally fine for my purposes (except if I want to run Windows!), but then I thought it might be worth looking at replacing the servers instead.

Currently, I have 10x 1U Transport GT24 (B2891) boxes. These boxes each have two AMD Opteron CPUs which run super hot, and loud, and don't have hardware virtualization support. The amount of RAM in each box varies between 4GB-8GB.

I also have two Dell PowerEdge 1950s. I know some people hate these boxes, but they are quite perfect for me! Their fans don't scream, and the CPUs have VT and I have 16GB in each box.

As I am currently running out of rack space, I was interested in replacing the Opteron boxes with a Dell PowerEdge 1855 Blade Chassis with some Dell PowerEdge 1955 Blades, but I was wondering how noisy these actually are compared to 1U servers.

We have some blades at work, but our server room is so loud due as it is, I can't really tell how loud a blade chassis/server is.

It looks like the blade chassis has some large fans on the back for cooling, and each individual blade doesn't have any fans? Or is this wrong? I can't seem to find anywhere that suggests that there are fans inside the blade.

This would, in theory, mean that the blades should be quieter ... Read more

Answer:Blade Servers vs 1U server noise

This is a CMC failover but still you can see what the blade servers put out with those fans.

I have the opportunity to buy some hardware but I'm having a tough time finding out what the specs are of the equipment. I'm not real familiar with blade equipment so I might end up passing on this hardware, I'm looking at this hardware for office use but since there is so much I will probably resell some of it unless I get a major influx of business.

Can blade servers be used outside the "cage"? I don't see a PSU on these things so I'm wondering is a PSU can be rigged to attach to it by making an adapter with 12v & 5V rails. Basically getting either a regulated Bench PSU or modified computer PSU to a custom build connector to run the units.

The stats list that each of these have 2 Opteron 2.4 Ghz CPU's and 8000 series MOBO chipset, so it seems like these are pretty new CPU's? Can anyone help identify possible CPU's from this info?

Also, it says that the RAM available is 4x4GB 333MHz, 400Mhz speed, what does that mean? Which speed is that, I've seen other servers list that as well- My IBM has the same PC2-3200 4GB sticks that say 333Mhz on them but all info pn the net say 400Mhz. Any ideas?

This stuff is at an auction house and the only info available is the following:
3 Gigabit LAN adapters
2 AMD Opteron 2.4 GHz Number of Installed Processors 2
16gb installed - 4x4 GB DDR SDRAM - RAM Speed 333 MHz, 400 MHz Number of Memory Slots 8 x DIMMs

Blades have proprietary ports. So unless you're hellbent on hacking something together, your answer is "no".

Honestly, I'd say skip this purchase. The extra cost to get this stuff working might exceed your budget. It's better to get something new, or at least has a warranty and SLA.

I'm having difficulty getting my PC into a new domain - I've setup a Server 2003 box and can ping the workstation from the server, but cannot ping the other way around, and am unable to join the PC into the domain. A pretty fundamental problem I would say! Maybe I missed something when setting up the server?

I built a small SBS 2003 domain for a customer a few months ago and thought I would take advantage of my Technet sub and build a 2003 network so I can test stuff etc. But I cannot get the damn thing setup! Grrrrrrr!!!!

I don't know if this is buried here on HOCP or not, but here it is just in case.

There is an article on SuperSite that explains how to add a computer to a Server 2012 Essentials machine (i.e. install the connector software) without it taking over the workstation and adding it to the domain.


Hopefully MS won't put some sort of bullshit block in for this in the final RTM.

Answer:Apparantly you CAN attach to Server 2012 Essentials without Domain

Nice to know. Might allow more people to use it w/o worrying about domain administration.

After a rather brutal storm here in Central Florida, I had my primary data server/media server shutdown rather ungracefully due to power loss after the UPS battery dwindled.

When I got home, I powered everything up as per the usual and noticed that my storage pool virtual disk did not mount. No big deal this happens from time to time, but when I went to attach the VD it failed.

According to Get-StoragePool, Get-VirtualDisk and -GetPhysicalDisk everything is in good health and operational order, but the damn VD will not attach. I'm running 4x4TB disks in parity for what it's worth.

The Google is failing me big time on this one... does anyone here have any insight or ideas? Since I cant mount the VD I cant run a repair on it or try to rebuild etc.

Answer:Unable to Attach Virtual Disk - Server 2k12r2 Storage Spaces

In the event logs, what kind of errors pertaining to the storage can you find? Unfortunately you might have had a "Storage Space" a.k.a. RAID puncture which can cause this failure to attach. Don't lose hope because I have not been messing with SS for very long so I've got nothing for you but I am curious what your logs show.

Question: Rescued Documents

If you are working on a document, say an Excel spreadsheet, and your PC suddenly goes dead without you having saved your work, it will appear on your hard disk won't it ? Will it be in Notepad format though ?

Answer:Rescued Documents

Start-->Search-->Files or Folders

In the filename box, type (exactly as shown): *.tmp,~*.*

Hit View-Details when it's done, so you can see date and time. Look for a file, larger than 0 KB (and probably at least 20 KB) that's dated about the time your PC crashed. Right-click and rename any candidates to have an XLS file extension. (To do this, you must be viewing file extensions by double-click My Computer, go to Tools-Folder Options, View tab and make sure you aren't "Hiding file extensions for known file types").

Then, try opening those files. The odds of retrieving are slim. Sorry.

Hi all
I've "Rescued" an old very clunky Laptop from "The TIP" and am going to clean it up, install a larger HD in it and then pass it on to a "Schools Project".

The Laptop has 1GB RAM in it and a P4 processor. Anyway of knowiing quickly if this is a 64 BIT processor or not before I try and install the OS.

(Note I have to repair the internal DVD device -- not a problem as it's only the "Bevel plastic strip" on the outside but until I have done that I can't do the obvious like Boot up and see).

Laptop model is sony vaio PCG-GRT816S -- it's a real POWER HOG (probably why P4 was never popular in Laptops) but where I live power is the one commodity that's both CHEAP and PLENTIFUL.

Can't find anything on Google on this.

If it's a 32 BIT processor then I'll just have to download 7100 X86 but hoping to avoid that.


Answer:Rescued from The TIP sony VAIO - 32 or 64 BIT CPU

I don't have my W7 system here at work but I was surprised to find my Pentium 4 WAS 64 bit capable. I think if you go to computer properties and find a link there to view and print the system properties, it will tell you "64 bit capable" "yes" or "no" I hope it's there in computer properties. Maybe in the WEI. I know some of the P4's are 64 bit.

Edit: It IS in the WEI page. It's the link "view and print detailed system information" it will tell you there. Hope this helps.

Hi. I've spent many hours over the last few days cleaning my cousin's laptop for him - he and his family are pretty ignorant of internet security (i plan to change this!) and the machine was in pretty bad shape when I first booted it up with probably a couple of hundred different malware issues, likely it's been a zombie for a long time.

To start with it had WinAntiVirusPro 2006, 2007 & 2008 on it hijacking the desktop so I cleaned that with SmitFraudFix, SmitRem, RogueRemover, and removed several other issues (BHOs etc) using HijackThis, KillBox, HijackFree.

Originally the PC had McAfee security on it which had expired and not been updated in a very long time, so I removed this and installed ZoneAlarm Free, AVG8, Spybot & Ad-Aware as these free products have always served me well. Scans with the latter three products then removed lots of malware. I plan to install SpywareBlaster later.

I removed some minor startup issues using msconfig and upgraded the RAM in the machine from 256MB to 1GB and it then seemed to be running like a dream, but given the poor state a few days ago I was still suspicious and want to be certain there's nothing still lurking and compromising security.

Is there a way of getting rid of most of the smoke damage caused from a fire?
The laptop survived the fire ok. It functions normally. Only the outside was damaged by smoke. I'm sure that not all the smell will come out, but I'm hoping to get rid of at least most of it.
Any realistic ideas?

Answer:Laptop rescued from fire-but smoke damaged

Things like moth ball, dryer sheets, activated charcoal and kitty litter containing clay will all remove odors. You might buy one of those, put it into a bit of netting so any small bits and pieces do not get inside the notebook then put the notebook and the netting, containing the product into a large zip-lock bag for a day or two.
Even baking soda will remove odors but since it is so fine, I'm not sure what you could put it in and be sure that nothing seeps into the notebook.

Greetings Hopers,I am very new to this PC world, and am very inexperienced in dealing with these issues, but I'm hoping someone may be able to assist me with my dilemma.I have a PackardBell Imedia PC running XP, and i've been attempting to install an update to my Nvidia GeForce4 MX440 driver.I found the download, then placed this .exe into my download folder.I then went to ADD/REMOVE and deleted the existing Nvidia Driver.I was prompted to restart my computer for the remove to take effect. This was clearly a howling boo-boo. Upon rebooting, (I did this in Safe Mode), the screen remains blank. Clearly this is because there is no driver to display the graphics. However, I know what the path is to the exe file (in the download folder). Is there any way that I can open this exe while having no visible screen? Am I in serious doo-doo land? I took a look at the menu option that said "safe mode with command", but it asked for an administrator password. This PC is over 5 years old, and whatever password (if any) was chosen at that time, is now lost to me. Certainly the obvious ones i tried failed gloriously. So, no password, but I still would like to know if i can activate that exe without my graphics driver?I apologise in advance if this problem seems hopelessly amatuerish.

Now the pc works great except I can't Restore the thumbdrive files back to the pc as the drive isn't recognized by R & R.

Windows does recognize that the thumbdrive is about 80% full but can't see any file name. I'm guessing this is because it's one big file created by Rescue and Recovery. PC is an M55.

Hey, we're looking at maybe migrating our infrastructure over to a set of blades (10 bay enclosure, 8 servers online with two spares at the ready), and I'd like to talk with someone who's worked with them in a production environment.

Some questions I have are:

1. Dell mentions that you can "Provision" a blade slot for a particular OS configuration for easy restore in the event of failure. How does that work? Do you keep a preconfigured 2003 server image on hand? Does it take "snapshots" of that slot's hardware at predefined intervals?

2. How does the OS see the SAN? Is it seen as a network drive or does it appear more inline with how your box would see a SCSI controller and drive?

3. How do you manage filesystems on the SAN? Does it support multiple partitions? NTFS? FAT? Proprietary? Managed through special proprietary software or through Windows' Disk Management Console?

4. MS Exchange server. I assume that you'd store the database on the SAN rather than on the blade itself, but what about recovery in the event that blade fails? This ties back to question #1. If we're dealing with snapshots, that's cool unless they're over 30 days old, in which case you could have some Kerberos problems with that machine on the domain. Not hard to fix, still, but a pain in the a** any way you look at it.

seriously though, I wouldn't do it, have seen some horror stories happen and it's much better to look good infront of the boss for coming in at 2am than to even chance the possiblity of looking like a complete and utter retard when you have just destroyed few grand worth of equipment and put 40 something network clients out of business.

People expect us to work late and do maintenance at weird off-hours, whether you agree with that or not doesnt matter, it's the general "public" opinion and you're much better off following it.

Unless you got a brand new backup switch that is ready to go , then I say f-it and plug away :-D

Question: Mount & Blade BSOD

? OS - Windows 7 x64
? What was original installed OS on system? Windows XP
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? I ordered ir from a website along with my motherboard so I guess full retail.
? Age of system (hardware) 2007-2010 one of my hard drives is 2005 tho but the OS is not on it.
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? ~6 months
? CPU Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 (overclocked)
? Video Card Nvidia GeForce 9600 GT
? MotherBoard I dont remember and for some reason everest doesnt know. Besides the same problem occured with the last motherboard too.
? Power Supply - brand & wattage 450W dont know the brand.

BSOD only happens when I play mount & blade or mount & blade warband. And when I played a lot of M&B without realizing that my last motherboard eventually broke.

Answer:Mount & Blade BSOD

Hi -

There are 3 dumps in the attached zip - latest on = Sept 2010.

Undo overclocking.

450w PSU is a likely issue - Power Supply Information and Selection

Run Driver Verifier - Driver Verifier - Windows 7 & Vista (BSOD-related)

Driver Verifier needs to run 24 hours minimum or until it BSODs your system, whichever is less. Then run BSOD dump/ file collection app again - Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows 7 & VistaRegards. . .

I have specific questions about blade servers.
Mostly related to the Dell M1000e series.

So I have a chassis which holds X blades. I buy 3 blades and 6 power supplies.
That part I get. What I don't understand are the following.

What are the KVM modules for? What are you seeing on a monitor if you hook up to these KVM modules for the chassis?

Why do blades need network daughter cards? And why are there multiple kinds? Broadcoms, Intels, etc. Why are there spots for 2 separate network daughter cards for the blades? What purpose do these serve?

Why are there multiple slots on the back of the chassis for multiple kinds of network blades? If I have a Dell powerconnect blade in the back, does that provide a virtual network to all the blades?

How do the blades communicate with each other? Is there a network backplane that allows the blades to talk with each other via the 10gb daughter cards? Does this mean the bandwidth between blades is 10gb?

Answer:explain blade servers to me

Dell should have been able to explain all of this to you prior to the purchase.

KVM modules are so you can control the blades using a keyboard monitor and mouse. If you plug into the KVM module you can use the panel on the front of the chassis to tab through each blade.

I prefer just using the CMC, you can give it an ip address to which you pull open in a browser window. From there you can see your chassis and all of your blades, you can click on them to pop out a window console.

The back of the blade chassis supports 3 network fabrics, each fabric consists of two blade switches (6 total)

If you have 1 network fabric which would be two blade switches in slot A1 and A2 then that's what the built in network cards will connect to, if you get a Fabric B or C you will need an extra mezzanine card in each blade in order to connect to them.

Each fabric has internal ports and external ports, the internal ports are what the blades connect to, external ports are so you can plug into a physical network. Blades communicate to eachother through the network fabrics.

I?m, new here and I need help getting rid of something called BD Blade Runner 0.80a. It is apparently a Trojan horse.

I am running a Dell Inspiron 8200 with Windows XP SP1. I have subscribed to Norton Antivirus, Personal Firewall, and Internet Security services since I bought the computer. A few weeks ago, I began getting a message that Norton had detected and blocked an intrusion attempt by BD Blade Runner 0.80a with a source listed as ( i.e. my own computer) . When I tried to search for the term ?Blade?, ?Runner?, ?Trojan Horse?, or similar terms and combinations, in various search engines (including Yahoo, Google, and Symantec?s own Virus Dictionary? , I get ?page cannot be displayed?? and, until recently, the intrusion alert from Norton over and over again. I spent a frustrating couple of days on the phone with Symantec?s help desk (the one apparently in India), checking ?hosts? files and deleting Temp files with no success. All they could tell me that whatever BD? was it was resident in my operating system and they kept shuffling me back and forth between their technical support and virus removal groups, trying things they were ?sure would solve my problem? I finally gave up on them,

I was weeding through search results and came across this site where sane people seem to inhabit. I am trying to decide on a network tool kit for punchdowns. The Fluke IS60 Protocol Kit looks decent, but I am a bit confused on the blades. There are 66, 110, and 66/110 cut blades. The cabling being run is Cat6. Which particular blade would be best suited to this? Or, at least, what are the differences between the 3? Taking a guess, I'd say that the 66/110 has 66 on one end and 110 on the other while "cut" implies that the slack wire is snipped when the tool impacts.

Any help regarding this would be greatly appreciated. Also, if there is a better a solution with regards to the IS60, I would like to hear those as well. I've used Fluke in the past and our IT department has what appears to be an IS60, but that only means I could be sheltered and they could be ... well, if the IT department was competent, I wouldn't be running on my own line.

Thanks again.

Answer:Fluke blade connector

Hello jformica,

I'm only just entering the world of networking and am not quite at the stage of wiring installations so none of what I say is from experience.

It looks like your assumption is correct and the 66/110 cut blade is a reversible blade that can be used for either 66 or 110 blocks. The individual blades are for the specific block and would be incompatible with the other block type so I would go for the 66/110 reversible cut blade as it gives your more options.

With regards to differences, it appears to come down to the exact connection type used on 66 and 110 blocks. They both have slightly different connectors and so require different tools when punching down. As to the benefits of each I'm afraid I can't comment as have never used either but from what I have read in the last 10 minutes it looks like you will be best off using a 110 for Cat6.

Hope that helps a little and hopefully someone else maybe able to give you a more definitive answer.

I wonder if any other Onspeed users who also use Norton Internet Security have had this problem? With Onspeed active, searching for anything containing the word "blade" in Google (probably any search engine)causes a security alert for BD Blade Runner 0.80a with the source "local host" (i.e. my own computer!). The page is scrambled too. The same happens if I search for Blade Runner in this forum. Disable Onspeed and no problem. At least one other member has experienced this (search for Blade Runner, with Onspeed disabled!!). Onspeed seem aware of this and tell me "The new version of Norton gets confused between ONSPEED and the Blade Runner virus at times as both use port 5400 to operate". I've asked for more details. Cheers.

Answer:Onspeed, NIS and BD Blade Runner trojan

Sounds like Norton are just using a silly method for detecting this virus, eg. any packets that contain the word blade in and travel via port 5400 are believed to be a virus. Seems like Norton need to sort this one out.

BLADE: Can it stop drive-by malware? | IT Security |

BLADE (BLock All Drive-by download Exploits), the brainchild of researchers from College of Computing at Georgia Institute of Technology and SRI International, is positioned to help stem the tide of drive-by malware. A big deal according to, the company is tracking over 200 thousand different web-based malware threats.

To spot unsolicited download attempts, BLADE places the following processes in kernel space,
User-interaction tracking: BLADE uses a screen parser, hardware-event tracer, and a supervisor to track the user?s physical interactions with the web browser, specifically when download authorization is asked for.
Consent correlation: This process is required by BLADE to distinguish between transparent downloads and those requiring user permission.
Disk I/O redirection: When BLADE locates un-authorized downloads, it redirects the code to a secure zone. The data is also prevented from loading into memory as an executable.

According to the research paper, almost 19,000 trials have taken place, with zero false positives and zero false negatives. Meaning, BLADE prevented in-the-wild drive-by malware from installing in every case.

Playing the wonderful "Mount & Blade" (independent pc game), I just got a Blue Screen Of Death, forcing me to reboot the computer.

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x1000008e (0xc0000005, 0xbf9f4f0f, 0xb10a9fe4, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini052707-01.dmp.

Referenced to NV4DISP.DLL (display driver)

So, is there a problem between M&B 0.808 and the latest Nvidia drivers?
Because no other games have done this.. I've tried Supreme Commander, Medieval 2 Total War.. etc. No problems what so ever.

Attached the dumpfile. I haven't tried M&B since this. I have posted about this on their forum also. Just thought I'd check with you guys' thoughts on what the minidump says. I am thinking a problem with the latest nvidia driver and M&B 0.808. But I dunno..

Answer:BSOD in Mount & Blade, in the Tournament Arena

The process in that dump is explorer.exe. Do a search on your system to see that you have only one instance of it, in C:\Windows.

I have a Pentium 4,128 MB ram, Trident Blade XP card. The problem is with the display. Sometimes the monitor suddenly b'comes a bit blurred and after sometime it goes into a Hang. I use Win98 SE OS

Answer:Trident Blade XP making my machine hang

Hi cool_coolioi.......
A couple of things to you have the latest drivers installed ?

Update your directX....

and run the directX diagnostics.....start/run. Type in dxdiag. Run through the tests. See if there is any problems.

Change your refresh rate. Right click anywhere on your desktop. Choose properties>settings>advanced>adapter. Maybe change from optimal to default and see if there is a difference.

Hope this helps.

Hello forum users,

I'm updating a video card for a freind on and W6378MS motherboard. I have done the usual delete old video card and instal new, but the Trident still keeps showing in devises.
I'm guessing that I need to jumper the on board card off, but he doesn't have the manual. I'm hoping that someone can tell me what jumper I need to move or if I need to do this by the BIOS.

Hoping for some advise.

I recently purchased two 128GB SanDisk Cruzer Blades for the specific purpose of storing images of my two Windows 10 installations. (On a desktop & portable) After re-formatting them to NTS (they come with FAT formatting) I selected the blade USB as the location for the OS Image.
Windows 10 came up with a message saying that the blade wasn't a suitable storage medium - even though it had much more storage capacity than was needed for the image. What's wrong with using a USB for the image? (It's much easier to lock away!)
I then 'resorted' to storing the image on an external hard drive. Later, I copied the image from the hard drive onto the 128GB Blade. Some time later, when Windows 10 failed to 'let me in' I needed to restore it with the image. I tried the image stored on the blade, but that didn't work. Fortunately, the image on the external hard drive did, so normality was restored.
Is there any way I can use the 128GB blades to store Windows 10 images? If anyone has the answer, please let me know! Thanks.

Answer:SanDisk Blade unsuitable for Windows 10 image

If you simply want an image of your hard drives, try Clonezilla - it's free. You'll need to boot with it on a suitable medium.
In truth I don't know if it'll work, but it's as versatile as any I've used.

Hi, I would like to inquire about an article published on your site regarding a comparison of the 2017 Razer Blade and the 2016 Razer Blade, both with the GTX 1060. In this article it was mentioned and linked to another article stating that its possible and perhaps even reasonable to exchange the PCIE SSD of the Razer with another model/higher capacity. The article itself utilises a Samsung EVO 960 as the replacement SSD. Is the same process possible with a Samsung PM961 1TB? This is the same drive model that you should get in the offered 500GB and 1TB versions of the Razer Blade.
Furthermore could you recommend a more detailed video describing and performing the process explained in the article?

I am a long time Macbook user although I also owned a Surface Pro 3 for some time and loved it, although I really didn't like Windows, I find that Windows 10 is much much better. For that reason I am considering a Windows notebook, I really want a powerful ultrabook and do care about the build quality and looks of the product.
So I wanted to know your opinion in the two alternatives I am analyzing, the Surface Book or the Razer Blade Stealth, truth be told I really don't care much about the tablet capabilites of the Surface, and although I do play games I don't think I would buy the external graphics powerhouse for the Razer. So which is the better laptop? Would be great to know your opinion.

Answer:Microsoft Surface Book vs Razer Blade Stealth

I really, really liked the Surface Book, and it was the reason I didn't buy a Macbook 2015 at the time, but I decided to wait. Something about the hinge seemed a bit questionable to me, so I thought I'd wait until it was released to the general public. What I read a month or two later was that the connection was not stable enough on the version with the discrete graphics processor, leading to some very disconcerting issues. I'm so glad that I waited because as an owner of a Razer Blade Pro (2013) and a Razer Blade (2015), I can attest to the quality of these products. Sure they're not perfect (it seems likely the Razer Blade 2015 could overheat if you push it as hard as you can), but they're very, very good and very well made. No hinge issues there for sure. I will be buying the external unit and have my sights set on getting the 4k 512 GB version of the Razer Blade Stealth. Sure Razer's accessories aren't always great, but the laptops do not disappoint. They (Razer laptops) may not be as well-built as Macs (I have a 15" Macbook Pro), but they're very close, and they are also far more powerful. If you're as concerned about Surface Book issues as I am, it's a very easy choice to make.

I tried to use bluescreen View and it said error

but if after BSOD the laptop got restarted and everything works fine again. but if i shutdown the laptop and turn it on again and do the same thing > open the blade and soul again. it will BSOD once more .
i already uninstall all the unecessary driver such as usb charger + etc etc , but it didnt work out. heres are the DM Log i already compile.

thankyou for your attention . i hope theres a solution over this error. since service center for asus in my country is rather far and takes a lot of time to go to the place.

I think this should be separated from the thread on "S10 fan runs too fast, too often, too loud." The fan on my S10 has been unusually / annoyingly loud with grinding noises. It's much louder than the typically loud fan on laptops. Thanks, Mark_Lenovo, for insisting that Fan Blade Interference with the Housing can really be an issue. Too bad receiving services from the contracted / outsourced local Lenovo service center is too complicated, ineffective, and consumes too much of my time. I choose the DIY approach and totally understand that my warranty could be voided. I just cannot tolerate the annoyance from the fan anymore. Local service center said they don't have a replacement fan in stock. I would have to wait for a "few weeks" for them to order from abroad (perhaps, Singapore) and would need to call back and check if they have ones in stock or have used up already. I can also queue up by leaving my only computer (yes, this S10) with them during this wait period.  I finally opened the S10 last night with the help of the Hardware Maintenance Manual and did the following:Fan Upgrade - Disassembled the fan,- Cleaned it with WD40-like oil,- Fully filled it with white lithium grease,- Fixed the blade interference issue by "heightening" the housing with 3 pieces of 0.5-mm thick plastic sheets, and- Sealed the space introduced by the plastice sheet with UHU Plastic Repair Adhesive. I really saw traces of the fan interference: there are a lot of scratches...

I have outgrown a couple of old desktop thats got turned into servers in the basement. I want to get a rack system, with non-current generation hardware. By going non current, I am able to get more for my money, because i dont need top level processing power, but the down side is that with older hardware and just more hardware in general, the power costs will quickly rise.

I know that HP made some g3 g4 blades that look to be priced nicely, but do those older blade systems really have any power benefits over say 1u stuff.

Answer:power costs btw blade servers and full size 1-2us?

Most blade chassis (as far as I have seen) require 208v power.

Looking at a fully decked out blade chassis from 2006~ vs a modern 2U box you can get more performance out of the 2U box that will pay for itself over the first year of power savings. This is only fresh in my mind because a friend who works for another company decided to pick up a fully decked out IBM blade center from around that time and quickly realized that his $1,000 was going to be a big electricity bill with less processing power.

Power waste is just astronomical with those things. Or any older 1U/2U server for that matter, just look at the older 1U dell's that use 2-2.5amps and have 1/20th of the power of a current server that uses just 1amp or less.

So I bought my 2013 Razer Blade last year, and it ran fine. I didn't update it to Windows 8.1, and it has been working fine. However, recently, I noticed that my Blade was having some pretty severe battery self discharge. I left it at about 30% and shut the PC down, and when I turned it on again to do some work the next day, the battery was fully drained. Now, the batter indicator is broken. Why? It's been stuck at 100%. I've printed some documents, and did about 30 minutes of light gaming (which usually drains the battery by a little) and so far, the battery has not gone down at all. Even as I'm at full brightness too. It seems like my battery is severely damaged, and since my warranty has expired, I don't think sending it back to Razer would help much, especially when I need it for school work and all. I did do some research on repairing the damn thing in Singapore (which is where I live), but it costs about $200-300. About 80% of it goes into labor costs. It seems like I have to obtain a replacement battery too (which is expensive as well). Anyway, is there anything I can do, software wise, to fix the indicator? It just went down to 99% after typing the paragraph above, stating that I have about 3 hours left on battery life. Well, I know my battery is busted, since it's self discharging, but is the indicator not working as well?

Answer:Razer Blade 14 (2013 Edition) Battery Issues

Welcome to the TSG Forums....

Your computer uses a lithium-ion polymer battery. As with all Li-ion batteries there are safety issues associated with LiPo batteries - some of which can result in catastrophic failure, including fire and in some very rare cases an explosion.

If you believe that the battery is faulty then should you stop using the computer and either remove the battery or allow it to discharge completely.

It would also not serve any purpose to simply replace the battery because you do not know the cause of the problem.

I suggest that you should seek professional advice of someone who has the equipment and experience to correctly diagnose the problem. This really is a prime example of where a little knowledge could be very dangerous. I believe that without physically subjecting the computer to hands-on testing it is near to impossible to accurately diagnose the problem.

Is this possible? I've got my free copy of server 08 and a 'older' spare PC that I'd like to install it on (I hope). Putting system requirements aside, is this attainable? The main thing that attracts me is the advertisement that server 08 can run php and side by side.

I've searched and looked around, but I haven't really found anything useful. That might be a sign...

Answer:Server 2008 as a Web Server/File Server/Print Server

I tested Server 2008 on an old HP Compaq nx9600 laptop (P4 3ghz, 512mb RAM, ATI Radeon Mobility X300) I had lying around in my cabinet in an attempt to practice migrating and upgrading WSS 2.0 from a 2003 server to WSS 3.0 on the 2008 server on the laptop. It ran slow as shit when the WMSDE database running lol.. but without it, it was as smooth as Win2003.

I am going be moving all the shared folders on my Server 2003 file server to my new Server 2008 VM and want to do it in a way that will allow my clients to be able to access them as if nothing happened. I have been reading about the Windows FSMT (File Server Migration Toolkit) and it will copy over all the permissions and everything but I am not sure how to go about making sure the client will still be able to access the shares especially if they have mapped any of them. If i change the IP and host name of the new machine to the old one after the migration is complete and then shutdown the old server will everything run smoothly? What is the best way to go about doing this?

Answer:Migrate Server 2003 file server shares to new machine (Server 2008)

you can do this or you can change DNS so that the old server name points to the new server IP. You need to turn off StrictNameChecking

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


this means that you can name the server what ever you want but if you go to the old host name it will also take you to the new server.

Don't forget this needs to be completed and rolled out after the users log off but before they log back in

As old user move on and new users join make sure that you link them to the share via the new host name so eventually the old host name is fased out and you can remove the above reg key.
