I have put myself in a bad situation that I can’t come out, any help will be very well appreciated.
I was playing with the configuration on a r420 poweredge server that has a pcie video card and i was trying to find the optimal resolution however the on board matrix video controller was messing with the windows resolution configuration, so I've went to de bios and disabled the video controller, well now comes all the problems. I’ve immediately lost the virtual console under the idrac as ive learned idrac taps on that video controller, then the boot process does not display completely on the pcie card, only half of the boot and i cant get signal upon entering the bios keystroke. any ideas on how to reset the bios via idrac without virtual console?

I have a PowerEdge T610 with a Perc 6/i Integrated controller. when i look at it in Open Manage i can find the predictive failure drive and have i identified it by enable blinking on the drive. but i can't tell if it is a RAID level drive so i can replace it without shutting down the server? OpenManage shows 2 connector(s) the first Connector 0 RAID has 4 drives 0:0:0:0, 0:0:0:1, 0:0:0:2 and 0:0:0:3 all on line and good status. the other connector, Connector 1 RAID only shows 1 drive ID: 1:0:4 Physical Disk: Status show Non-Critical.  Drive details below. what i am trying to figure out is, is the drive part of a RAID array? Seem odd to have 1 drive sitting by itself not as part of a RAID.  Also, what data is on this specific drive?
in the OS Disk Manager is shows.
Disk 0  basic, Online and it has System Reserved and C: 323.15 GB NTFS (Boot)

I am trying to update the onboard OS of my Dell Wyse 7010 thin client. I loaded the latest OS/BIOS image to a 32gb usb flash drive formatted to FAT32 and attempted to boot to it by pushing "P" until the boot options pop up. Then I select the usb drive and a couple seconds later the screen goes right back to the boot options.

Why would it not boot from the USB drive? What is the proper procedure for flashing a Dell Wyse 7010 thin client?

I have a dell Inspiron 15 5000series laptop(i5 and 8gb of RAM. that I use for development.  It is about 2.5yrs old.  It is extremely slow and unresponsive at times.  I have tried numerous "fixes" but still the same.  Websites work fine from my phone so the wireless connection appears to be ok.  Disk usage is in the teens while the memory is in the 50s.  

 I can't even watched a youtube video without it buffering.  Half the time the slider to move the video back to re-watch a part doesn't even appear.  

I really don't want to have to buy a new one.  Does anyone have any fixes or documentation about this issue?

Thanks,

I have Dell MD 3200 which is the SAN (Storage Area Network) for 2 server Dell Power Edge R510.
I have never worked with the SAN before.
The Situation:
I can ping this SAN with its IP Address, but I can not Remote Desktop to it (Note: I am not sure whether it is the case to every SAN).
I wander how I can configure this SAN (as I cannot see it; there must be “something to be used” to let me see or configure this device or a software?).

The GOAL: The SAN should be reset to factory default (so I will know the default ID and password)

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

The user suddenly got a message saying that the power adapter for their Inspiron 15-3565 Laptop  couldn't charge their computer.
Dell Charging Error
I had them shut down the Laptop.  When it came back on, there was no message anymore.  HOWEVER, yesterday they shut down and that didn't help.

Is the problem with the adapter, the motherboard, Windows 10?

How do I proceed?   Replacement 3rd party adapters are cheap enough, if that's the problem.

Thanks.

Hello,
Anyone have any recent experience with HP thin clients?
We are using older model Wyse terminals and are looking to upgrade.
I was looking around for reviews and testimonials but couldn't find anything about the current ones on the market.  
If anyone is using the Hp ones and has time to share a review, that will be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I have recently put in a new Dell PowerEdge T340 running 2 Hyper V VM's. One DC & one RDP, both Server 2019.

Since installing the network has slowed down dramatically.  Before they were peer to peer with 1 PC having the sales program they use.

I have searched and done all the usual stuff, VMQ off, static IP's etc but its not getting any better.

Can anyone suggest anything else to try?

I know that Windows 10 licenses are now embedded in the motherboard.  Some of our desktop computers are running Windows 7 but are not that old.  I am going to assume they have Windows 7 using downgrade rights.  How can we be sure the computer has a Windows 10 digital license before we download and install Windows 10?

Hello Experts,

I have recently purchased a Dell Touch screen XPS 13 9365.

I'm having a problem getting screen sharing programs to work. Whenever, I attempt to 'Screen share' with the following applications using Chrome, the browser disappears the second I select 'Screenshare'

The applications are

www.whereby.com
www.crankwheel.com

I don't have any such problem with any of my other laptops

This is very frustrating, so any help will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Dell PowerEdge T320 H310 RAID controller does not recognize all physical drives?
I have two identical T320 servers with Perc H310 controller. I'm trying to add an additional RAID 1 virtual drive for data partition. I purchased compatible drives for this server and installed then. When I enter the controller BIOS I only see drives 0,1 and 3 don't see drive 2. Both servers are giving me the same result. I thought it may have been a defective drive but I was able to eliminate that theory. I have updated both servers to the lasts BIOS, iDrac and controller firmware's. Any thoughts?

We have Dell r730 running Solaris 11 and MD1420 storage array connected through perc h830 raid controller. MegaCli is unable to collect disk information.

The command is /MegaCli -PdList -a0

and the error we get is:
ERROR:Could not detect controller.
Failed to get ControllerId List.
Failed to get CpController object.

Any suggestions? Is there a different software that can be used under Solaris 11. Mainly we are trying to check disk status every few hours through cron job, so that any disk failure can be notified through email in a timely manner.

Similar hardware running Solaris 10 x86 works fine.

/MegaCli -PdList -a0 | grep -i "Firmware state"
Firmware state: Online, Spun Up

Hi

We have some HP and Dell PC (Win 7 & Win10). Some of our staff will have SSL VPN connected to our office for remote access their PC by remote desktop.

The problem here is that their PC sometimes is turned off or sleep mode accidentally. To prevent it, how we can wake up their PC by some simple script or method?

Thanks

We have a PowerEdge R410 with a PERC S300 Raid Controller.  We had an issue with one of the drives not being recognized by the Raid controller, so we decided to rebuild the RAID and reinstall Windows.  The RAID appears to be set up fine in the card, but no OS installation is able to detect it.  We've tried Windows 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016 and Linux, but none can see the virtual drive.  Any suggestions??

Become a CompTIA Certified Healthcare IT Tech

This course will help prep you to earn the CompTIA Healthcare IT Technician certification showing that you have the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in installing, managing, and troubleshooting IT systems in medical and clinical settings.

I’ve just been upgraded to a new Office thin client type desktop computer Dell Wyse 5070 (one of those where we have a thin client and all the processing of everything is being done on a central server).  Had a junior IT guy set up my system and something is not right, I don’t believe it is a central admin policy setup because I can do everything I want on a Firefox app.

1.      My Google account Sync is paused when I open Chrome
2.      My extensions like session buddy, amazon tool and various other extensions do not load but my Cisco webex is the only extension that loads when I open Chrome (without logging in)
3.      I am forced to login each time before my web site passwords etc pull down
4.      My previous tabbed sessions do not load

How do I fix all these issues?  It was semi working on the first day I got this new computer but because I complaint about my bookmarks and links not syncing automatically when I opened Chrome, he said that my profile was corrupt and did something such that now, the book marks are there but all my extensions disappear the moment I restart my PC.

We have a new Dell Precision laptop and it comes with a new docking station.  We have connected an HP ZR30w monitor to it through a Display Port cable, but I can't seem to figure out why it keeps flickering every few minutes.  I know this is an old monitor, but since it's 30", the user really wants to keep it.  Any suggestions?  I have tried getting the drivers for it, but Windows doesn't seem to take them for the monitor.  What should I check?

Thanks in advance!

O/S: Windows 7
Hardware: Dell 7810

The system recently ( over the past 2 -3 months ) has been crashing with a BSOD and giving me a memory dump. This happens randomly. It has occurred a couple of times during the day and it has happened over night and on weekend when no one if on the system.

It seems to be pointing at the iaStorB driver. The driver seems to be updated.
I am not sure if I need this driver or how to remove it.

I have attached screen shot and I do have the full memory dump but it is 1.5 Gigs so uploading maybe an issue.

Any help would be appreciated of riding myself of this issue.

Thanks

Dear experts,

Currently we are using Dell Tape library for backup the data of my company. I would like to ask which is the best technology for backup now a days. Cloud or Tape Library. (Less expensive and Easy to handle and maintain). We generate almost  5TB data per year. Can you suggest me please should I keep the existing one, or go for the cloud like Veeam?

Many Thanks in advanced.

Here's a weird one: Windows 10 has now seemed fit to mess with my audio, to the point that my "L" and "R" sliders have to be changed. This just started about a month ago and I've since reinstalled the Realtek Audio drivers from Dell 3x. (This is a Dell Optiplex Workstation).

If I don't keep the "L" at around 25 and the "R" at around 75. I lose all kinds of channels and levels of audio to the point it gets incredibly distorted. When I turn the levels down to 0 to mute the volume, they seek their level and pair up again and I have to fix it over and over. I've turned off all the Audio Enhancements and this is a new one on me.  These levels don't seem to stand for left and right anymore and I'd love to get my normal audio back.
