Factory-Installed Drive Devices (2140, 2142)
Use this check procedure to test any factory-installed drives.
The customer might have customized settings in the Setup Utility (other than default settings) on the computer you are servicing. Running the Setup Utility might alter those settings. Note the current setting and verify that the customer settings are in place when service is complete.
NOTE: If you cannot access the hard disk drive load a diskette from drive A or load a CD from the CD/DVD-ROM drive, make sure the Setup Utility has the startup sequence set with Hard Disk, Diskette, and CD/DVD-ROM enabled.
If the number of diskette drives shown in the Installed Devices list is not correct:
NOTE: If the drive is installed in the Media Console, check the drive ribbon cable from the system board to the host card and from the drive to the client card. Also check the Media Console cable.
If the problem remains, check the continuity on the drive cable and replace the cable if necessary. If that does not fix the problem, replace the system board.
See > 'CD/DVD CD-ROM Disk Drive Jumper Settings'.
Also ensure the CD/DVD-ROM cable is installed in connector J30 on the Type A-1 system board or in connector J11 on the Type A-2 system board.
If any other adapter or device is flagged as Not Installed, run the Setup program.
Check to see if any adapter or device is set to a conflicting address with any other adapter or device. Also be sure that any adapter or device missing from the list is not set to Disabled
NOTE: If you cannot add a missing adapter or device to the list, the diagnostic code for the missing adapter or device is not on the diagnostic CD. Run the diagnostics provided with that device.
The factory installed ZIP drive operates in the same manner as a hard disk drive. The ZIP drive, in the Setup Utility, will display as a hard disk drive with a capacity of 100 MB.
The ZIP drive is jumpered as Slave. See 'ZIP Drive' for jumper settings. The following drive initialization information must be entered in the CMOS only when configuring the ZIP drive as the boot drive.
