MacCon IIsi SE/30 Not Working. Any Ideas?

Recommended Posts

I recently acquired an Asante MacCon IIsi SE/30 network card, but I can't seem to get it to work.

 

When attempting to install the Asante drivers, it fails to detect the card. When I try to run the Asante Troubleshooter, the system crashes with a "bus error". The troubleshooter runs with extensions disabled, but does not detect the card.

 

TattleTech does not detect the card.

 

The card is fully seated, the back panel is connected properly, the card appears undamaged and has no residue on it.

 

I can't say for sure the card was functional when I got it, but I have no reason to believe it shouldn't have been. I'm not entirely sure if the SE/30 is the problem either, since I don't have another functional one to test it with. It also gives me a bus error if I try to use the MultiModule screensaver in After Dark or start a game in SimCity 1.0, if those are an indicator of anything.

 

Any ideas?

Which slot ID did you set the MacCon to?

Not sure if TattleTech is always accurate on PDS cards in the SE/30, you might want to check Newertech Gauge Series SlotInfo if it is seeing the card at all.

I can't remember the IDs off the top of my head now, but first I had it set to both jumpers on (how it came), then I changed it to both jumpers off because I saw someone else using it that way, but neither way seemed to work.

 

Gauge Series SlotInfo did not see the card.

This sounds very similar to a problem I had with an LC575 and both comm slot and pds ethernet cards. The wouldn't be recognized by the Faralon software and caused booting problems. Problem turned out to be the power supply going weak. Re-capped that and everything works. The weak supply took longer than it should have to come within spec with the added load preventing the cards from being properly initialized during the power up process.

 

If you haven't yet re-capped your power supply, could be the problem.

So that didn't work, either I've got two power supplies that have the same issue or something else is going on.

 

The picture is a bit crooked on this one as well, I think I bumped the video board or something. I'll have to figure out how to fix that later.
