\device\ide\ideport0 did not respond within the timeout period

Q: \device\ide\ideport0 did not respond within the timeout period

I have a Dell Latitude CPiA 366 laptop that intermittently freezes or blue screens. I updated the system BIOS and ran scandisk. The machine is currently stable but I am noticing the following system event viewer error which keeps reoccuring:

"the device, \device\ide\ideport0, did not respond within the timeout period"

This is Event ID 9, Source Atapi.

Micro$oft has an article in its' knowledge base regarding this which point to outdated hardware or firmware. Is the hard drive going bad on this machine? Please advise.

Preferred Solution: \device\ide\ideport0 did not respond within the timeout period

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: \device\ide\ideport0 did not respond within the timeout period

It could be. This error sometimes appears when a drive or controller is having problems.

Try getting a diagnostic program that has drive testing.

Hi All,
My windows 7 freezes and stops responding every now and then.I have checked the events and found the following message occurs at the time it happens:

I have a 5-year-old Asus z70Va laptop. The hard drive is a PATA, and the system is running XP Home SP3. The problem I am about to describe started roughly a year ago, and has re-occurred at least 5-6 times.

I will be listening to audio (off the main hdd, not the DVD drive) when the problem starts -- usually streaming audio, though it has also happened twice when Outlook was playing a wav file as part of an Outlook rule I set up to flag emails from a particular sender. Interestingly, the error has *never* occurred when I have been playing a video file with audio.

What happens is that the music will sound as if it is getting "stuck" on one note or passage. It sounds distorted. It may pass quickly, but then will happen again ten-thirty minutes later, even if I stop and later restart the audio file (or stream). Once it recurs, I end up with this message in Event Viewer (System):

Event 9: The device, \Device\Ide\IdePort0, did not respond within the timeout period.

If I don't stop the audio immediately, the distorted and very discordant "stuck" audio continues, leading to a series of Event 9's before I can stop the player. But about every other time that happens, I *can't* stop the player; instead the computer freezes up (sometimes going to a BSOD), and when I restart I find that I now also have a series of bad block errors on a previously clean drive (usually 2 bad clusters).

So I end up replacing the drive, but then a month or two later the... Read more

A:Strictly Audio-Related Serious Event 9 Errors (The device, \Device\Ide\IdePort0...)

The audio is just a coincidence, not a symptom.

Bad sectors are a sign of a hardware issue with the HDD. Software won't cause bad sectors on a HDD. I'd suspect a bad HDD. If you have replaced the HDD multiple times, then there is an underlying hardware issue (ie: motherboard/controller issue or power).

Also, if you have to "whack" anything, there is a hardware issue. It's typically a sign of a loose of faulty connection. Otherwise "whacking" it wouldn't do anything.

Well it states a controller error in your first (or only) HardDrive

This can be:
Your HardDrive (sometimes you may notice that it's noisy, or clunking)
Your IDE data cable (can be just a faulty data cable to the HardDrive)
Faulty IDE0 port on Motherboard (you could try plugging it into IDE1 - where the CD/DVD is)
Faulty Motherboard (Oh dear, no comment)
Sometimes it can even be the CD/DVD drive causing the issue (try unplugging it from the M/b)

That's about all

Luckily, I am able to get online just fine but the idea of this showing up constantly bothers me. It was fine, for about 4 months it stopped showing up after I did no changes to my system but its now back.

Also for a while I was getting something about user cancelled something but I have not seen that in a long time.

I tried to unplug the modem and cables to reset the IP , but that doesnt help. Also not that my service uses a Dynamic IP and I cant switch to static IP.

I ask because I often leave my computer online for extended periods of time due to the fact that I sometimes download large files like after I format the computer and need to download all of the critical updates, norton updates, game updates, etc etc etc. Anyway, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

hello again...

dang this thing is a pain!!

new issue today, trying to save a tiny .rtf file to external USB drive, and get "semaphore timeout period has expired" message and have to save to local drive instead. also get the message if i drag and drop into the desired location.

perhaps related to the issue i occasionally have: the machine loses connection to the external drive and either the folder shows empty (it's not!) or doesn't show as even being connected. little blue light on the drive will sometimes go out, sometimes not, but still no access...

EDIT: i have two verbatim USB drive attached... one or the other of them will occasional disappear from This PC and when i look at device manager there is an error on that drive. i disconnect and reconnect and the drives show up and the error in device manger goes away... there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to why this happens. when it does and i try to save something to the drive, that's when i get the "semaphore timeout period has expired"

i have tried to update drivers using windows search online and it always says i have the best drivers loaded....

the drives have been checked for errors and windows reports none... there is still quite a bit of available space on them (80+ gigs on each) and when they are connected and live, i can access files with no problem... it just decides to seemingly drop the drive randomly...

thanks for any help...

I maintain some software that makes a tcp socket connection to a different piece of software and sends data back and forth (pretty basic stuff there). We use boost asio to handle reading and writing of data over the socket connection. We have a client that
has deployed this software on Windows7. The client has been having issues with our software not being able to maintain a reliable socket connection. One thing I have noticed is that quite often the networking callback are receiving the error: The semaphore
timeout period has expired.

This error is not coming from anywhere in our code (or the boost code). I've done some research on it and I found a Microsoft Knowledge base article on this error for Windows XP (support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/325487). I've seen a few people ask questions about
this error on Windows7, but they're all in regards to moving files to different drives, nothing regarding network connections.

What does this error mean in regards to Windows7? Does the knowledge base article I mentioned still apply to Windows7?

Greetings,

My environment is: Win'7, Visual Studio 2010, C#

There is another message on these forums with almost exactly the same title. It's closed, so I couldn't post there.

I'm getting that exact same response from Win'7 in a try /catch scheme.

i.e., "...The semaphore timeout period has expired..."

I am quite confident that the serial port is really there, as he will open and will transfer data from time to time.

It's the whims of the hardware that have me so confused.

The exact same code worked perfectly last night. In fact, it has worked for weeks.

The statement which I believe is causing the error is...
TheUsersChosenSerialPort.Open();​

Much like the other thread mentioned, the port is a BlueTooth connector, and Win'7 is reporting him okay, and so on.

I welcome responses from those with useful knowledge on this topic.

This issue may be a little complex and require some steps to troubleshoot:
 
1.    Update the driver of wireless network adapters in both of your computers.
2.    Temporarily disable all the firewalls and anti-virus applications, then check the issue again.
3.    To exclude the factors from other services and applications, do a clean boot to check the issue and perform Step 4.(KB929135) How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vistahttp://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;929135
4.    With clean boot, try to apply the hotfixes contained in the following KB articles:(KB932045) Error message when you use a network connection to copy a large file from one Windows Vista-based computer to another Windows Vista-based computer: "The connection has been lost"

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;932063
If problem still persists after steps above, this issue is very possibly due to network devices or configurations, please let me know:
 
1.    Whether this problem occurs in wired network?
2.    If strengthening the network signals, the problem can be changed?
3.    What size of files will lead to this error.

I have been getting the following error message on a Windows 2000 Server with a Promise Fasttrak controller basically ever since I owned it (1.5 years): The device, \Device\Scsi\Fasttrak1, did not respond within the timeout period. I h ave had system hangs since the beginning, but the time between hangs has ranged between months to days, but eventually it works into a pattern of days. We have IDE drives and Fasttrak1 is pointing to our 30 GB OS pair.

This error intermittently causes the server to hang until it becomes a daily problem. My IT consultants have been stumped, have been on numerous calls with Promise, who continue to say we have bad drives. All four drives have been scanned and show no errors. We replaced the cables and this bought a couple of months of no crashes, but is started all over. All drivers have been updated.

We finally talked Promise into replacing the controller, and this didn't work. Shortly thereafter, however, the controller finally told us that a drive was bad. We replaced that drive, and now it is crashing again, but the controller will not tell us a specific drive is bad. We have three other drives that have not been replaced.

The last crash gave a blue screen that stated the boot drive was not available. It rebooted fine. Sometimes, rebooting takes four or five times before you can get past an error stating "missing or corrupt file" or being hung at the windows start-up bar.

A friend was using my 12 GB I/O Magic flash drive (USB 2.0) on a MAC (Powerbook G4, OS X) to transfer some In Design files when it froze. Had to reboot, and OS X no longer recognized the USB drive. Mounted it in my HP dv1000 laptop running Windows XP (ver 1.5, SP2) and got the following Windows error message: The specified I/O device\Device\Hardisk 1\DR 3 was not completed before the timeout period expired. I got the same basic message with a Dell running XP, SP2, but the Device was identified as Hardisk 0. Device manager shows no problems with any USB device or root hub on either Windows PC, and I've tried deleting all of them to force new driver installs, but with no luck. The drive still does not show up in My Computer, or Explorer, but on occasion, when I hover over the USB icon in the task bar, it will identify it as the 'I Drive' which is the normal ID in Windows on the HP laptop, but no other recognition this device is mounted. When this happens, and I stop the port and unplug, it still is unrecognized. Any way to get either the MAC or Windows based PCs to mount this drive so the In Design file can be recovered, or if all else fails, to just format to allow USB drive reuse? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Does anyone else have a similar issue?
Ideas?

A:USB device causes keyboard to not respond

Either the drive or the particular usb keyboard you have is a current level grabber in that it pulls down the usb bus! I have a gaming model illuminated keyboard that has to go into a port directly for that reason and use a usb hub with a separalte ac adapter for things like flash drives to have the adequate current available.

This had been a problem with the last build and so far hasn't been checked on the new one while the same hub is also convenient as well! But the keyboard pulls too much to even use a PS/2 adapter and not light up at all. I'm stuck plugging in a second roll away type keyboard just to press F12 at post to bring the boot device menu up as well.

I've plugged different flash drives(have several, different brands) directly into the ports on the old build and they all refused to boot from when turned into a live usb stick for some reason due to this. CyberPower makes some small 4 port hubs with a blue led and amber when a device/drive is plugged in that have been found quite reliable on the other hand for solving this type of problem. Cyberpower Systems USA, Inc. 4-Port USB 2.0 Hub CPH420P

Those are commonly seen in Walmarts at times or were, Radio Shack, and found for less online. But for a small hub they last! Keep the keyboard plugged in direct while plugging various brand flash drives into one of these. That so far has worked out well here with different sized as well as different brands.

A:Device Manager will not respond nor will Cd-rom or usb devices

Open up a command prompt and type chkdsk /f /r[b/] it'll ask to restart so do so. Let it scan it should fix the MMC.EXE problem. As for the CD/ROM problem try opening the tray and blow out the inside with some compressed air and try again.

Hi guys.

I'm having some BSOD and freezes.

Actually when i go to device manger and make a search for new devices it never stops searching, and i've to force close the window because it doesn't respond.

The first bsod dump refers to the atheros driver, i already replaced it.

But after that another 2 bsod's appeared (dump 2 and dump3).

Sorry my bad english, and i hope you can figure it out.

Best regards.

Hi,

We have various different bugchecks:

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (d1)

This indicates that a kernel-mode driver attempted to access pageable memory at a process IRQL that was too high.

A driver tried to access an address that is pageable (or that is completely invalid) while the IRQL was too high. This bug check is usually caused by drivers that have used improper addresses.

IMAGE_NAME: athrx.sys

ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows (Atheros?????)

!sysinfo machineid won't work so I cannot see what manufacturer you have. If it's Dell, try the latest Atheros driver website from their site first. If it's HP, same thing... etc etc. Follow the manufacturer. If you built your own, check motherboard site... so if it's a Gigabyte board, check their site, Asus, etc.

DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (9f)

This bug check indicates that the driver is in an inconsistent or invalid power state.

Unfortunately, there's we cannot run an !irp on the 4th parameter of the bugcheck to see which driver caused it (blocked IRP address).

Hello Everyone,
I have an on going ATA deployment, where the customer wants to know, the possibility of having the logs / event retained for 1 year and an approximate idea on the impact of storage and any limitations for MongoDB.
As per the ATA sizing tool and article the requirement of ATA center falls in the below specification.




Packets per second from all DCs

CPU (cores*)

Memory (GB)

Database storage per day (GB)

Database storage per month (GB)

IOPS**




















400,000

12

96

120

3,600

2,000 (2,500)



So we have a approx. storage requirement of 3.6 TB per month, so how long are the logs/event on ATA center kept by default and can we change the retention period for the same.
Thank you,

Regards,
Iqbal Johar

client within our small switched network, we're currenly ve a 1Mb ADSL,
clients linked with 3 dlink switches and one Thomson 500 adsl router..
pinging to any domain would result in this very weired behaviour..

any clues?? can it be the dsl provider itself??

Somewhere between you and 216.109.112.135 about 1 packet in 6 is being lost or delayed beyond ping's threshold. Maybe the destination site is busy, maybe your ISP is busy, maybe general network congestion. Not desirable, but not so weired either.

I upgraded to Windows 10 a while back. Every time I open the computer I get a pop-up notification telling me the USB device is unrecognized. I have no USB devices in any of my 3 USB ports.
I sent my computer in twice. No help. They just uninstalled everything and reinstalled everything and told me it should be fixed. It is not. I then went about updating every driver in my Device Manager. I uninstalled the Unknown USB Device and then updated
other drivers. Certain drivers (such as PCI Express Root Port #3 - 9C14) when updating would also reinstall the Unknown USB Device, which I would then uninstall and keep working down the list. At the end of updating EVERYTHING I scanned for hardware changes
and "found" the Unknown USB Device. 
From what I can tell, and I know very little about this stuff, my computer can't name one of my USB ports. Since it can't figure out what it's called it can't download the proper driver for it. Since it can't download the proper driver it can't work properly.
The practical result from this is that one of my three USB ports does nothing when I put in any USB item (connect my android phone, thumb drive, presentation clicker, etc).
I've looked on tons of forums. My current thought is that if I can tell my computer what the deice is or download the right driver and tell my computer to use that driver for this device it should solve my issue. But I don't know how to know what the name
of the USB port should be (I imagine it woul... Read more

Hello guys, just read my story this is all true.
Okay so I wanted to get a better graphics card so I got this exact card
Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1370-TR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

and my computer is a Dell Studio XPS 8100 Service Tag is C06PNL1 for the computer

but anyways, the graphics card I bought fits inside but the problem is that it has two PCI adapters and my PSU wont support that
My PSU is 350 watts at the moment

and I was wondering, is it okay to upgrade my PSU to like a 600 watt PSU?
this is the one i want
CompUSA.com | CUL-650B | Coolmax CUL-650B Power Supply

dell told me that it could screw up other parts of my computer and void warranty

but should I get it or not? All I want to do is game on my new graphics card DX

A:Need Some Help Period

It says here:

GeForce GTX 460 1GB Power Consumption and Thermals | bit-tech.net

that the power consumption of a Windows 7 system with that graphics card is 250 to 270 watts at load and about 136 at idle.

Dell generally uses decent power supplies, so your PSU may handle it OK. Can you get an adapter so your PSU will have 2 and match the video card?

Dell used to use some oddball connectors, so I don't know whether an ordinary ATX PSU will necessarily hook up correctly in your model 8100.

But 600 watts is more than enough.

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on why there is a 30-day "evaluation" period prior to activation.

Typically, someone downloads a [free] evaluation to try out the software prior to making a purchase. However, that is not the case with Windows as a customer would have to purchase the OS even to try it out.

Would there be any difference of Microsoft required the activation upon completion of the installation?

Thanks in advance for your insights.

A:30-day Evaluation Period

Welcome!

The 30 day trial is actually misleading. It is not supposed to be a trial, but merely a grace period before you need to activate. You are right, it does not make any sense to require the user to pay just to use the trial.

Well, it's pretty simple. I can't get it to boot overclocked... not at all - on either of these boards, each of which has been touted for easy overclocking (on a budget).

I'm not a newbie to Overclocking... but I AM a newbie to overclocking Intel chips (A previous AMD Fanboy). I've been told, and have always assumed, that it's the same idea.

I gave up a month ago when it just didn't work, but now it just sits there, with that giant Zalman and the 360mm case fan doing nothing but look cool (Which they do excellently).

A:Q6600 Won't OC. Period.

Have you tried disabling C1E, or does your BIOS even support that? Make sure you've unlinked the FSB and RAM speeds, that would cause some problems for sure. On my board, I have my Q6600 at a solid 3Ghz on 1.25 vcore, so don't push the volts up too far. You could try dropping the multiplier and pushing the FSB speed up.

I have a HP ProBook 6550b laptop. It has the wide keyboard with the number keys on the right (as well as across the top row). The del key is also on the right. The del key has a period in what would normally be the shift or uppercase position. Whenever I try to delete a character it inserts a period instead of deleting. It will still do this regardless of whether number lock is on or off and regardless of whether shift is used or not.
Does anyone know how I can get it to delete as it normally should??
NOTE: A similar question to this was also posted by someone else in a previous thread but the solution offered, ie, toggling the number lock, did NOT work.
