Possible Hardware problems??

Post by Anonymo » Mon, 15 Aug 1994 13:57:23

I have done a good deal of looking through HOWTOs and FAQs and have come
up with a configuration for a 90 Mhz Pentium that I would like to buy.
But, given how sometimes documentation for supported hardware isn't
always up to date, I was wondering if anyone saw a problem with what
I have picked out.  Here it is:

P90 CPU w/512k cache
16 M of Ram
NCR53c810 SCSI-II controller
Micropolis 4110 1.05 G HD
Viewsonic 17G 17" monitor
#9 GXE 64 PCI vid card w/2 megs
ZyXel U-1496E modem
Soundblaster 16
Logitech 3-button mouse

I know the support for the vid card and the controller are still ALPHA
for the most part, but I believe they will work, correct?
If anyone has suggestions for a better setup that would be in a similar
price range with the above components, I'd love to hear them!


1. Solaris Installation - Possible Hardware Problem

I've installed Solaris 7 successfully; however, in the middle of the
process my system begins to make a very high-pitched sound and will not
stop.  The installation process continues and the SunOS is installed.
But, after I boot up and begin working within Solaris my machine again
begins to make this high-pitched whine.  Is this a sign of a hardware
conflict that was not identified with the kdmconfig process? Or does
this indicate a different problem.  On the same machine, but on a
different removeable harddrive, I've got Windows NT Server running just
fine without the high pitch sound.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance for your help.
