Dear,

Please find the code corrected.

Best Regards
#include <iostream>

int main()
{

	// calculating the average of two integers, two long integers
	// or 2 floating-point values using an overloaded function called average

	// define variables	

	int x, y;
	long a, b;
	float m, n;


	// try using if statements to put the inputs into the appropriate variable buckets, then do the 
	// overloaded function thing.  
	
	// first function
	std::cout << "This program calculates the average of 2 numbers. \n";
	std::cout << "what is the first number you want to average? \n";
	std::cin >> x;

		if (x == 0)
			{
			int average(int x, int y);
			std::cout << "what is the second number you want to average? \n";
			std::cin >> y;
			std::cout << (x + y) / 2;
			return 0;	
			}
		if (x > 4294967294UL)
			{
			a = x;
			long average(long a, long b);
			std::cout << "what is the second number you want to average? \n";
			std::cin >> b;
			std::cout << (a + b) / 2;
			return 0;	
			}
		if (x > 1.2e-38)
			{
			m = x;
			float average(float m,float n);
			std::cout << "what is the second number you want to average? \n";
			std::cin >> n;
			std::cout << (m + n) / 2;
			return 0;	
			}

Hi Pmasotta ,

that link is 4 year old till that there shud be somethin there which resolve it ..becos i am able to boot but stops automatically or after every boot i need to plug in plug out the network cable

Commented:
1) you didn't say how old your HP DL580 was ... BTW have you checked if your firmware is current?

2) if every boot you need to plug in plug out the network cable its pretty clear there's some problem with that NIC don't you think?...

Fisrt ..its a new one last week i got it..and the firmware is the latest one.
Second ...we have already tried to replace nic card 2 times but same thing.....i am using same kickstart files with new 380 machine and its working fine with no issues...is it can be a network issue?...m totally frustated due to this behaviour :( of nics

Commented:
if the PC gets stucked and plug in/out the network cable solves the thing then the NIC doesn't look good,
but if you also say that you replaced 3 NICs I'd ask 3 identical NICs?? if they were not, there might be some other hidden problem...

got ur point but here is another point i have 2 Dl580 Machine and both having same issues...and for ur information they replaced 2 time whole nic card and one time motherboard....
Commented:
my question is: the cards you replaced were the same brand and model?


Author

Commented:
i have purchased them from HP and they replaced it so i think they shud be of same brands or not?

Commented:
try to test it with some other brand card

Author

Commented:
its hard to test other brand....dnt we have other options to check it ..? and cnfrm that is this a network/hardware/bios setting issue?

Commented:
i don't think so... I think your cards are having PXE issues...
try to see if you have some ethernet/PXE bios option and tell me...
