PCI Video card vs Compaq Raid Controller

When I insert my pci video card my raid controller card will not initialize at post. So my OS doesnt load though the hard drive check does cycle. I have a proliant 3000 using E39 bios 4/2000 is there a newer bios or a rom I am missing to make these two perfs work in the same system?

Re: PCI Video card vs Compaq Raid Controller

Hi,

Did you set switch 1 on the system board to "on" before inserting the video card?

This disables onboard video as you may have a clash or IRQ's and addresses if you don't do this.

Check the label inside the cover of your server for switch locations.

Regards,

Brian

On/Off it doesnt discriminate it just stops my controller card from working

Re: PCI Video card vs Compaq Raid Controller

I had the same situation and found a ATI that worked. The chipsets on video cards can conflict with Compaq hardware.
Try a couple different ones and you should find one that will work.
Good Luck, Theron
