Today I will skip the habit to write about web development (with a good reason though!) and I will post a little note that will may help you if you have the above error.
What is all about? Few days ago (like a week or so) my PC, suddenly stopped to run smoothly: Photoshop had some strange behaviour: I loose all keyboard settings and it starts once time per user session (when I had the bad inspiration to close it, I had to restart the PC to re-run).
After few restarts i had this genius idea: let’s look in the window event viewer. In the “system” folder i found this:
The driver for device \Device\Scsi\JRAID1 detected a port timeout due to prolonged inactivity. All associated busses were reset in an effort to clear the condition.
Uhm.. Ooook… Now what? I started to google this error and some guys wrote on forums that the problem is with the driver and i have to install the jMicron driver. The weirdest part is this: the last hardware change that I made on my PC was like a month ago!
On the other hand, some other guys wrote (on other forums) that the problem may be with the memory. Solution? Just increase the voltage a bit. So here is what I did:
I installed the jMicron driver (I kinda was desperate because I had a tight deadline and the debugging of my system DEFINITELY wasn’t in my plan!) and when I restarted, i also increased the voltage for the RAM with 0.05v. The problem it’s just… GONE and my PC run again smoothly.
My configuration is this:
MB: Gigabyte EP35-DS4 (you have to press CTRL+F1 if you have a Gigabyte mother board to access some advanced goodies)
CPU: Intel e8400@3Ghz
RAM: 8Gb DDR2 @ 800Mhz (Corsair)
Video: Evga 9800GTX
HDD: 2xWD6401AALS in RAID 1 (which actually gave me the error, because acted like was disconnected) and a bunch of other HDD’s.
