Proliant 1850R SCSI status LED off after clean install

What driver/software do I need to load to get the green status leds on the SCSI hard drives to light up? The activity LED's blink but after doing a clean NT4 server install, the status leds are off. I had initially used the NT4 built in SCSI driver and then loaded the COMPAQ driver for the built in SCSI controller but this did not light the LED's. The only COMPAQ software/drivers that I have installed are this SCSI Driver, and the video and network drivers (no insight management or any other misc. stuff).

Hello Tom,
If you do have a Smart Array Controller then you would need to update the Firmware of the controller as well as the Hard Drives.

The LEDS were working before I reformatted and reinstalled NT server (someone else had set up these machines and I am not familiar with them). The SCSI controller is just what is built into the motherboard of the Proliant 1850R. The only firmware for this controller is the motherboard bios.
