Windows cannot determine the I/O Range & IRQ settings for the SCSI & RAID Controller - Adaptec driver v5.1.2600.5512 RRS feed

  • Question

  • There is an error in Device Manager / SCSI & RAID Controllers for....

    Adaptec AHA-151X/AHA-152X or AIC-6260/AIC-6360 SCSI Host Adapter (non-pnp)

    Product version: 5.1.2600.5512 Date: 01/07/2001  Created: 21 Feb 2009

    I am assuming that as the version is the same as Windows SP3 that Microsoft will have upgraded the driver at the time SP3 was installed. Is that correct?

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    It does not have values for the I/O and IRQ. See these screen shots ....

    Microsoft blocks any attempt to exit the resource window until the forced configuration settings have been set. I had to close the window in Task Manager.

    I have no idea what settings to enter here. Can you help me please.

    I have read somewhere on the internet that the sparrow.sys driver looks only to IRQ 11 unless the registry entry is changed. Is this correct?

    I have looked at the registry entries - screen shot here ....

    The start entry is set to zero. Is that OK? I thought zero meant it was disabled.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The existing values for I/O and IRQ's are shown here ....

    The problem is that I have no idea what effect not having these settings is having on my system. I cannot see any problems with any plug in device at the moment. All that I am using are a Printer and Flash Drives at the moment and they all seem to be working fine.

    Can you help me please?

  • Thanks for your assessment VF. It does look very much like the adapter has failed. However as I have no experience with computer innards I have decided to just disable the SCSI & RAID Controller for the time-being. I do not appear to have a need for that facility just now and everything works fine without it. If at some time in the future I do require it I shall have to get a technician to test it out for me.

    Incidentally I did load the original driver that came with the computer but that gave the same I/O and IRQ error message.

    Thanks for your input.
