Re: O2 R5000 180 to R5200 300 Fail!

Just replaced the R5k-180 with the R5k-200: smooth as velvet. I have to thank you Nekochan gurus, your information about the IRIX version has been of great help. :-)
buona domenica!

Re: O2 R5000 180 to R5200 300 Fail!

Hi crusoe, how did it go then? Did you manage to replace the cpu successfully?

I was thinking of replacing my R5k 180 with a R5k 300 (030-1493-001), is it feasible without headaches? (I have PROM ver. 4.18 anyway and IRIX 6.5.22)

thank you!

Re: Fuel R14000 512Mb

Try opening up the prom command monitor and type in the command "enableall" without the inverted commas. Reboot the machine and check see if all of the RAM is enabled. Thank you, already performed the command the PROM said the two banks of 512Mb RAM weren't working fine and disabled them...

Re: Fuel R14000 512Mb

About the RAM modules: I did a check and Irix (or the PROM) tells me that the 512Mb DIMM modules aren't responding well so the mahcine disabled it. Actually I removed them, next time I'll mount only them in the first bank (slot 0 and 2, I know). Long ago I had a Fuel that only the first bank worked...

Re: Fuel snaphat replacement

Thank you Trippynet!
I fear I have to replace the Dallas one too, but hope is hard to die!

Tomorrow I'll buy the IC extractor tool and proceed with the replacement.

Hi there, I tried to pull off the screenshot 'cause some posts below I put the hinv text with code tags, but I failed.

This is a fuel belonged to a dear friend of mine, it has some issues which I hope to solve (with your help!)

Fuel snaphat replacement

Hi there, I'm Matteo an all new sgi fuel owner, my knowledge about the sgi world is only the myth that precedes every workstation, my Irix knowledge is poor, but with great possibilities of improvement. ;) I promise in the next days I'll post the hinv of my machine but, first of all, I have to solve...
