Firmware update for SAS1068 on xw8600

Q: Firmware update for SAS1068 on xw8600

Hello, I am interested in updating the firmware and bios to my LSI SAS1068 integrated on my xw8600. I would like it to remain bootable and be used in a RAID 0 configuration. Can you provide me with any insight as to which firmware files to use and where I could acquire them... Also what is the original LSI name for this controller. Thanks in advance for any info you can provide. Best regards, Johny4.51

Preferred Solution: Firmware update for SAS1068 on xw8600

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello all, I have hp xw8600 workstations and card quadro NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700. Now time i want to update the new vga support xw8600 and strong than FX 3700. My job need sofware: 3Dmax, Adobe photoshop and premier, lumion (special lumion). Please tell me the new vga Compatible with xw8600. Waitting repply......... Thank you very much.  

A:hp xw8600 workstation update new vga

I'm using the Quadro 2000, Quadro 2000D, and the Quadro K2000D in our xw6600 and xw8600 builds.  Those work fine there, and in our Z620 builds. Our workhorse workstations for medical imaging still use the Quadro FX1800 in the top PCIe x16 slot and the FX3700 in the lower PCIe x16 slot, but that use does not demand the 3-D power that you seek. So, my recommendation is to get a Quadro 2000 used off eBay (I like the older silver version with the squared off rear end, rather than the black rounded rear end one.  Silver gets you the larger quieter fan).  That won't cost you much, and it may suffice.  If you want to step up to faster the K2000 is nice but more cost for not a huge increase in performance.

Can a Firmware Update and or Driver A Update Reversed? Firmware Printer And/or Can Update Be drivers on printers be reversed I am new to BleepingComputer so I do not know which Forum to post this to as this issue involves multiple forums Hardware HP Printers Software Firmware amp Drivers Operating Systems running Windows and Windows XP At my workplace we have many HP Printers on the network HP sent me a link promoting HP Easy Printer Care I figured I would try it big mistake because I take care of all of Can A Printer Firmware Update And/or Driver Update Be Reversed? the printers in our building So this Easy Printer Care tells me that there is updated Firmware for my printers So I get the firmware and install it Of course HP didn t really explain how to install it I had to look it up to actually do the install After installing it HP tells me that the Firmware Updates still need to be updated Now the end users are having problems when they print Multiple users are having the same and or different problems The problem that has the most reports to me are When someone is printing a document and they want to change it from portrait to landscape they click on properties and receive an error message that reads Function address x e a aa caused a protection fault exception code xc Some or all property page s may not be displayed Click OK Then another windows pops up saying Operation could not be completed Click OK The function address is always different for different users or systems The exception code is always the same The User cannot make any changes in order to print I have tried a hard reboot on the printers to default back to factory settings but nothing seems to change Am I doing that correctly Does anyone have any suggestions Please advise Thank you Gloria B

A:Can A Printer Firmware Update And/or Driver Update Be Reversed?

You can go to Device Manager and find the printer and in properties it gives you the option to "roll back" the driver to a previous version. A firmware update and driver update mean 2 different things, to me anyways. My understanding is a firmware update offers "improved" instructions to the onboard chip of the device. What does HP say about the problem?

I have Aspire E 14. Last night, I saw I have 1 critical update for firmware v1.17. When I clicked the update button it just says "updating" It just goes on and is not stopping. I closed the portal and a window appears saying reflashing. I saw it did reflash up to 100%, but why won't the critical update notification disappear on Acer Care Center portal? I also checked update history and the firmware is not yet included. I tried it again the next morning, clicked the update button, but still, it just says updating and can go on until you close the portal.  Any solution? Did my Aspire really did reflash? It seemed nothing has changed. Thanks in advance!

I don't know much about firmware updates as I never had to do it but my DRW-2014L1Tburners are giving me some coasters in vista x64. Not 1 coaster under Nero 6 in xp pro.

I got the driver update listing in the sticky, went to the asus site to check on a firmware update for my burner's for x64 vista and there are 3 hopefully that will eliminate the coasters.

My question is: If I get the updates for the 64-bit vista will that interfere with those drives when I use xp pro ?

thanks,

PS: I use swappable drives; switching between vista x64 and xp pro.

Hello, I have recently purchased an "Onyx Portable Media Player" by "Mach Speed Technologies". I installed the included drivers and software and am currently upgrading the firmware. The update window says "SigmaTel MSCN Firmware", so I'm assuming it's licensed by SigmaTel. It's updating from version 000.000.000 to 880.282.433. The window's progress bar seems to be stuck at "Initializing", with no advances made in the main progress bar but the smaller one constantly filling and then refilling. Is this just going to take a long time or is there something wrong?

I can provide a screenshot if needed.

Laptop is a Dell Vostro 1000 with XP Home SP3. Just installed a Crucial SSD. Works great. Tried to install a firmware update; not so great. Following the instructions from the Crucial site, I downloaded the update (it's an ISO file) and burned it to a CD. In the BIOS, changed boot order to CD drive first. Restarted the laptop. No joy - Windows still boots to the desktop. What could be wrong? I know almost nothing about using ISO files. TIA.

CD-image ISO files have to be written to CD in a special way, if you just copied the ISO file to a CD like a normal file, that won't work. There's a free app for creating a CD from an ISO file, it's called IMGBurn: http://www.filehippo.com/download_imgburn/

I have an Olympus Evolt-500 that won't update the firmware. I'm running XP pro with a DSL internet connection. I've talked to every tech support person Olympus has and they don't have a clue what's wrong.

It will recognize the camera and lenses but it will download from 50% to 83% of the firmware update, then a message pops up and says no connection to server and everything shuts off. They had me try the download with no firewall on and using just the modem no router. I've used Olympus Viewer, Olympus Master and Olympus Studio Trial version and they all download about the same amount before they shut down.

I'm open to suggestions at this point.

It is ok.

I dont know what happened, but You HAVE to burn the bootable disk, and then boot into it after a restart in order to update the firmware.

A:Firmware update gone wrong

Newer BIOS chips have what is called a boot block sector. When flashing the BIOS this part is not flashed. Basically all it does is run the floppy drive, and if you are lucky you will also get basic video. I have re-flashed a "dead" BIOS with this. The MB was manufactured in 1998. The first attempt at flashing failed-nothing but beeps on restart. I downloaded the correct Bios update, made a new floppy to flash the BIOS and reran the flash program. There was nothing on the monitor, just a black screen, but I could hear the floppy drive being accessed. Follow the flash utility instructions and let it do its' thing. It took several long minutes, but it worked.

I'm providing this link below. Do not hold me or vistax64 responsible.
Wim's BIOS Page: BIOS Upgrades, Motherboard identification and more...

Finally, you can approach your manufacturer of your PC or bios to purchase a replacement.

You perform the firmware update from within the router's web user interface. Log into the router and there should be a option under one of the menus to upload new firmware to the unit.

I have never seen a firmware update as you describe open a command prompt window. if Pioneer actually uses this method then you will probably have to set the command prompt to the location of your drive. ie; type the locaion ( drive letter of the drive you are updating) if your pioneer is the D drive then you would type D:\ and then press enter

When I receive this drive will the Firmware have to be updated before use or, can that be done later on if needed? Thanks! SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Newegg.com

A:Firmware update question on ssd

Hi,

You can update the firmware before or after, I would suggest it would be better doing it before

This version improves write performance, which is version 1.0,

I have a Toshiba Notebook with following internal DVD-RW drive: "TS L632D T004 Toshiba".

The problem is, this drive doesen't burn DVD+r DL without failures.
I made quite much attempts with 10 DL DVDs und five different burning suites, without success.
So I guess to fix this failure with a firmware update.

Can somebody tell me where I can get this update?

thanks :)

Hi buddy,

Why should this issue related to the firmware?

In my opinion you should try removing the upper and lower filters in registry. Just follow this article:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060

And firmware updates you can get from the Toshiba website.

I have a netgear wnr1000 v2. I have been in the router settings and had it check for the latest firmware. It tells me I have the latest and that version is 1.0.0.12NA. Now, when I go to the netgear website and look up my router here: http://downloadcenter.netgear.com/ it says the latest version is 1.1.2.54. So I download it and go to install it to my router and get the error "Firmware upgrade failed. Please check your file." I know it's the right file. Only 3 files are in the installation and they are .html, .img, and .txt, and the image file is the installation one.

Q: xw8600

I have just purchased an xw8600 workstation and would like to upgrade the hard drives, which at the moment consists of a single 160 GB Sata drive. I have read on another forum that using the latest 6Gb/s sata drives can cause problems with the bios on this machine and that I should stick to the older 3Gb/s drives. I don't see why this should be, since the real world speed of any hard drive is always far, far less than the theoretical quoted speeds anyway. Also, obtaining older 3Gb/s drives will likely be a real pain in the neck unless I stick to second-user stuff.Anybody have any experience of this? Should I stick to older Sata drives to avoid problems with this beast? Any help much appreciated.

Does anyone have experience with updating their firmware on these SSD drives? What am i doing wrong?
edit: after digging around on my machine i found that i have firmware 3.3.2 which is apparently the latest firmware out there right now (i didnt know that till i just found this info out, this machine is 2 weeks old)

gang I've been web-searching for updated firmware or a way to do it on Hitachi travelstar internal 2.5" hdd... I have one that is producing frequent read errors, but running chkdsk the drive is 'squeaky clean' from a surface standpoint. I was hoping I might update..... can't find a thing

this drive failed the HP builtin [BIOS] HD tests, short and long, and failed the HGST diags tests, short and long [though the SMART status was all rosey ] Specifically the tests point to read-access failures which produce a string of Windows 7 system 'critical' events since the OS timing is scrambled by fetches that return no response.

nagging in the back of my brain is an ugly scenario: what if the issue is with the Mboard component? what would clue me in that the drive interface is at issue ? disc is a lot more likely I agree but it just doesn't feel like an ordinary disk fail

What are the 708A/UF 708A/UF2 drives??? How do i know if my drive is one of these?

Looking at this site:

http://www.plextor.be/products/dvd_recorders/px-708a.asp?choice=PX-708A

You'll find that the "A" model is the IDE internal drive, and the UF & UF2 models are external USB/Firewire drives.

However, following the link from PX-708A to firmware upgrades did not show a download for the "A" model, only for the others.

Hi!

It took me almost one hour to find this firmware update for my ADSL modem so that's why I uploaded it to Skydrive and make it hopefully a little bit easier for you.

My modem kicked me of the web a few times every day and then it also had a "broken internet connection" so that there was a little yellow notification triangle on the network adapters icon even if the "internet providers" signal was ok it couldn't connect...

Any how, I updated the firmware and I have been running it for a few days now and no connection problems.

Here is the link and there is also a manual included (and in the comments you can see a really short description on how to update the firmware).

Make sure that all other ATAPI devices are disconnected, if possible. If the drive is no longer under warranty, try the PS0B stock flash from CodeGuys. Using this patched version may invalidate any warranty.

But, what is the reason for the upgrade? They just as often as not lead to problems.

My tablet still worked after the update. Slower than before though.

None of my four radio apps work (they all worked fine before).

Bible.is no longer works.

All three of my browsers no longer work.

Firmware Update doesn't work (can't connect to the Internet).

Wi-Fi shows that my Archos is connected to my Internet service. My son and I are both online with our computers, so there is nothing wrong with our Internet connection.

Looks like I have no choice now, but to reformat the Archos and start all over again (for the 4th time!!!!) .... That will be very time consuming, as I will have to download all of my many apps all over again, and then reload all of my files all over again ....

Nero Info Tool should tell you the drive's firmware: http://www.nero.com/enu/support-nero8-tools-utilities.html
You can also run that same firmware update utility and I think it tells you if the firmware versions and if there's a newer version.

You can try the WinDVD trial: http://www.corel.com/servlet/Satellite/ca/en/Product/1189528458632#versionTabview=tab1&tabview=tab4

You have a weak CPU and that may be the problem.

I was unable to update via Magician so downloaded the ISO and ran it from a USB drive.
I was one of the lucky ones who didn't update to EXM02B6Q in Feb of 2015 which was a total disaster.
The update worked without any problems and speeds have not changed at all.
There is also a PDF installation guide for those who like to read first.
Don't forget to image the SSD first just in case. I did not, however loose data but better safe than sorry.

A:C40-05 Firmware Update Failed and Machine won't bo...

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Sorry to hear of the problem you are having.  Are you sure you got a BIOS Update from Windows Update?  If you did, that is a scary thought.  Windows 10 is good for giving you OS and driver updates whether you want them or not. Giving a BIOS Update is kind of over stepping their bounds IMHO.
 
Have you tried this.....
1. Unplug the charger / adapter. 2. Press and hold the Power Button for 15 seconds. 3. Plug in and power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.
 
If that didn't correct the problem, can you access the BIOS Setup by repeatedly tapping the F1 key when you first power up the computer.  If you can access the BIOS Setup then your problem is most likely an operating system problem with a driver update Microsoft gave you.

After it didn't work and it gives me the IDE #1 error before booting to Windows XP. I know I can eject before the error message but after that, it just doesn't eject at all nor detected.

I tried flashing it again but there is no drive it can detect to flash it. From the past, it seems like no way but I was hoping I can force flash it perhaps?

Any other suggestions would be grateful.

A:Firmware update for Linksys WRT54GL

You need to find out why your roomate can not connect. Is it becasue of bad coverage? But, you said the coverage is great. If it is a secure network and your roomate is using the correct password/key, and if the coverage is great, then some setting issue must be dealt with in the roomate's computer.

Why do you need third party firmware for your router? That may not solve your roomate's problem, becasue as I said, it could be in roomate's computer. I have heard using third party firmware on Linksys gives much more features. One of them is to increase the power out of the router. But, again, all those feature may not help you with the problme that your have.

First do this on your computer, then on roomate's:

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Bense..... Good to have you back. Impressive to say the least.  Can you educate us on the method of BSEL modding the motherboard or socket?  Some pics would be great.  I bet this takes a steady hand and a very small soldering tool. Nice lapping..... Thanks, Scott

We now have two xw8600 that have developed an intermittant power on issue.  Every so often when the power buttoin is pushed, the fans and disks can be heard to spin up, and that is where everything stays...no beeps, no display messages, no POST.  Incidence rate on the offending workstations is about 10%. This state persists until stopped by pressing the power button which provides an instant power down.  Restart has always been successful on both workstations to date.  Our other xw8600 workstation have not exhibited this behavior to date. Bruce

On my P50, when I check for updates with Lenovo Companion, it always tries to install Intel Management Engine 11.0 Firmware, and it downloads, says it failed when the little black command prompt opens, reboots, and then the update history said it was installed, yet Intel Management Engine 11.0 Firmware keeps popping up as an update.  What is this update supposed to do? Why is it failing? Everything else on this computer is up to date.

I seem to be in a loop while upgrading from a Pentium G840 to an i3770 K on an Intel DH61WW motherboard.
It seems that I need version 8.x of Intel Management Firmware and I can't get to update past version 7.1.52.1176
According to this page, I need version 8.x to continue for updates to use Windows 8 & 8.1

So far, I have had the bios version update to
BEH 6110H.86A.0048.2012.1105.1520
I had the i7 installed but it acted confused. So I reinstalled the Pentium and still nothing works as far as updating the Intel Management Firmware .
According to this page I am ready for 3rd Gen i7 but not unless Intel Management Firmware gets updated first

For a firmware update, does my region need to be the region I am actually living in, or can it be the region I have it currently set to? I want to use Cortana, so I changed my region to Uk, but I'm not receiving a update, and it's already been going on 4 weeks since the firmware first appeared. I've been waiting for the update to arrive, since it has DTtW.
Thanks in advance for any help.

We've recently installed a Level One FBR-1461 modem/router on a network with a fixed IP address. We need remote administration but that's not available with the early firmware version installed. A firmware update (via zip/afw file) was sent by Level One tech support in Germany, but not accepted by the router.

File is:

LevelOne-FBR-1461A-V1.35-RC24-180-80.3_sso_levelone.afw (about 3.5Mb)

I've tried shortening the file name to (perhaps) a more acceptable length, but the router will not accept the upgrade.

Has anyone else had problems or found a solution?

When I run the "Update" app on "Lenovo Companion" it tells me I need this and then appears to go through the whole installation process followed by a reboot. But then when I run the "Update" app again it tells me I still need to install it, as if it never happened. I went to the Lenovo support page to try to install it from there but I have the same problem, in that after rebooting and running the "Update" feature it tells me I still need to install it. Any ideas? Thanks.

So I installed my new SSD, set up all my programs and files, and was having some trouble with discovering an ACHI drivers (which apparently cannot be achieved on my dell latitude model IDE ATA/ATAPI driver missing?)

Anyway after installing the Samsung Magician software to help optimize the SSD, it said that a firmware update was available, so upon updating I was rewarded with a BSOD after restarting. I became angry and did a system restore with my image disk and started over. This time in the samsung magician it said the firmware was already up to date so I didn;t think anything of it until today another BSOD. If I have to do another reinstall I will take my own life, so I hope someone can help me here.

A:BSOD After Samsung magician (840 pro SSD) Firmware update

Do you use the DW1520 Wireless-N WLAN Half-mini card?
If so then it looks like the driver for it is the problem.

Do you have a spare HDD that you can use because I think the driver for it is incompatible with SSDs. I will need to double check.

Hi everyone, I need to do a firmware update for my Panasonic Blu-ray player, and this is the first one I've done since I started using Windows 7. The update file has to be written to a CD-R using the ISO9660 format.

I'm not quite sure which CD-R writing software I should be using for this purpose. Is the provided ImgBurn utility suitable for this, and is there a particular option I need to use within it?

If ImgBurn is not suitable, can you suggest a good alternative product?

Many thanks in anticipation for any advice!

This computer came with a Blu Ray disc player BDDVDRW CH30L BC56. So far it has operated well but I recently purchased an SHM SACD the drive does not recognize the disc at all. Is there a firmware update or same way to get the drive to recognize the disc.The drive recognizes all other discs including regular SACD's but not the SHM SACD. I have tried several different software media solutions (Foobar, J River, Korg) that recognize DSD files and SACD's as well but when checking the drive itself in a "my PC" settings it does not show up as recognizing the disc at all. All software players say the drive is empty.Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am able to play the SHM SACD on my Sony Blu Ray Player but want to be able to play the disc in my office on my computer as well.

friends I'm installing a fresh samsung 840 120gb. i thought i could put the ssd on sata 1 [not zero] and get firmware via magician on my windows 8 lab mule. no dice. apparently magician ONLY wants to see the ssd on sata zero. it can pull up the drive, but none of the controls work.
soooo... I'm thinking I'm going to have to go with the drive 'as is' to install 7 on a notebook, then as first order of business go pickup the firmware update and execute it.

will this result in sub-par arrangement? best I can tell the fw update is non-destructive.
is there another way?
