Re: Airtop3 NVMe problem

Oh, thanks - I never realized the slots were not identical. I was trying to buy 5 pcs of 970 EVO's but the seller had a limit of 3 pcs.. ;-( Need to buy more 970's, then. Thanks for the reply! EDIT: I put the 970 EVO's on the motherboard slots and yes, both slots work. Now, if I could make Ubuntu se...

Airtop3 NVMe problem

I'm finally putting my Airtop3 into use, so I installed 2 x Samsung 860 EVO 1 TB disks on the Airtop3 motherboard (and 3 x Samsung 970 EVO disks to the NVMe expansion board). I also have 4 pcs of Micron SATA disks installed. For some reason, BIOS and Linux only see one of the 860 EVO disks. BIOS lis...

Re: Dead USB ports

Please try these: http://fit-pc.com/wiki/index.php/Intense_PC_Troubleshooting If the situation continues please consider RMA: http://www.fit-pc.com/web/support/rma/ I'd say the efuse chip used in IPC is not doing its job. Instead of cutting power to USB ports and recovering it simply fails. I repla...

Spontaneous power off

Hi, My IPC2 has started powering off spontaneously at random times. I think this depends on the linux kernel version, but I'm not completely sure. Power off can happen when the system is idle or when I'm typing. When it happens, the machine just shuts off and a red LED lights up. Pressing the power ...

Re: Dead USB ports

If the USB ports of FACE module are dead (without power), it is possible that a current limiting chip (RT9703) has failed. I just replaced one on my IPC FACE module and now all four ports are working again. However, the USB2 ports on the back are also dead.. or, I'm getting "over-current condition" ...

Re: IPC USB ports died

I tried a Logitech USB keyboard, absolutely no life. It works ok in the two right hand side ports.

Re: IPC USB ports died

Hi,

I tried to reset BIOS, but the two USB ports are still dead. Even a wireless keyboard receiver does not work, neither does a USB FLASH stick. :-(

IPC USB ports died

A few days ago, I plugged a Canon scanner to one of the IPC FACE USB ports (the second one from the left). This killed the two FACE USB ports on the left. I tried to reboot and disconnected power for a while, but the ports are still dead (nothing shows in dmesg when I plug in a keyboard or a FLASH d...

Re: Display problems caused by heat?

I think my problems are some kind of driver or kernel problems as both my IPC's are acting the same with recent linux and kernel versions. With recent kernels, IPC runs much hotter and has problems with Chrome. I have tested xubuntu 14.04 and mint 17 and the latter is working a bit better, but still...

Re: Display problems caused by heat?

I was running the same xubuntu version (the same disks) on the other IPC and it started acting up as well. Once, X froze completely and later, Google Chrome display updates started failing. I have now reinstalled xubuntu 14.04 from scratch (well, /home is still the same). The system is quite hot, ca...
