    Fatal Error on unknown slot

    This has happened to me a couple of times, one minute I'm looking at MCA and the next I'm staring at a black screen, no error message, no warning.  This time I was rewinding a tape, and all of a sudden MC vanishes from before my eyes!  After a couple of seconds the black screen turns blue says 'Fatal error on unkown slot....Press F1 to reboot'.

    Any ideas on what may be causing this?  I am working in a 25i project.  Thanks in advance!

    Re: Fatal Error on unknown slot

    Do you have the intel network card installed?

    Because then you have to disable the onboard lan in the bios.

    That one gave me some trouble.

     Yeah, we have disabled in the bios as that was the cause of some other problems we had...thanks anyway!

    Re: Fatal Error on unknown slot

    Has anyone ever resolved this issue? I'm having the same problem on one of our xw8400s. Machine restarts and hangs on a black screen declaring 922-Fatal error on unknown slot.

    I know Randall said he had this and it may have been a bad card, but it didn't sound very definitive. HP has already replaced the logic board on this machine. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Re: Fatal Error on unknown slot

    This just problem started the past week on HP xw8400 (machine is three years old) . . . Have there been any further answers or solution for the dreaded "922 Fatal Error" issue?

    Thanks!

    Re: Fatal Error on unknown slot

    I just did a google search and it seems like a known problem with an unknown solution other than to replace the offending hardware.  Your problem is that the system is unable to determine which part failed.

    You should contact HP for service.

    "... You should contact HP for service. ..."

    And that's why we love the HP 3-year onsite warranty.  In addition, for only $249 per system, you can upgrade it to a 4-hour response time.  The warranty and service rocks!
