Intel DP55WG - 2 easy questions

bmansc Community Member

Just installed the DP55WG with an Intel i5, 4 gigs RAM, Windows7, and everything is running great.  I have noticed that I get an error code on the LED on the motherboard of 30 when I wake the computer - is that something I need to be concerned about?  I could only find a listing saying it was User initiated Crisis Recovery - is that just something that happens when Windows7 comes out of sleep?

 

My next easy question is - where the heck do I plug in the front little speaker from the chasis?  I cannot find a connection for it anywhere on the board!

 

Thanks for any help,

bmansc

    LED display

     

    Page 74 of the manual states that it is merely a resume indicator, as you suspected.  I think this is nothing at all to worry about.

    This screen useful when you have no video on the motherbaord, but it will still give you some visual codes.

     

     

    Speaker

     

    Page 28 of the manual states that there is a speaker already onboard, so there is no need to

    use the one in the case. See page 12 of the manual to see the location of the onboard speaker,

    labelled JJ.

    I have three of these systems, and they all do the same thing!  I opened a support case with Intel, and they said they can't reproduce the problem.  We sure seem to be doing a good job at it...

    Actually, the original post was correct, 30 is "User initiated Crisis Recovery", not "a resume indicator".  If the LCD is merely displaying the wrong status, this should still be fixed (probably in a BIOS update).

      Jason and bmansc,

     

      POST code 30 in this case is  exactly what should be seen when coming out of standby. Please refer to table 17 on page 74 of the product guide

    for DP55WG and look at the ACPI S State section. POST code 30 is resuming from Standby (S3). Try Hibernate (S4) on the system and the LED will show you POST code 40 as well.

    Interesting.  My reference was the DP55WG Technical Product Specification.  It also has a table titled "Port 80h POST Codes", but the table has different contents!  Apparently we're a victim of faulty documentation.

     

    However, I should clarify that the problem isn't merely "when coming out of standby".  The 30 is displayed indefinitely after.  The only way to clear it back to 00 is to restart the system.  I'm thinking that the status code isn't supposed to be the current status, but merely the last status change?

      Looks like a inconsistency between the TPS and the Product Guide but the product guide is correct.

    And you are correct on the assumption that the POST code displayed is the last state change.

    Post code 30 will remain there after coming out of standby until the next full restart.
