DAQ Diagnostic Utility problem


I use NI PCI 6259 and Windows Xp.

When I run DAQ Diagnostic Utility Version 2.0 it generate some fail in Analog Input and Analog Output.

Would you please help me?

Selected Device: Dev2

Device Type: PCI-6259

Serial Number: 148E1D9

Device Support: (PASS)

NI-DAQmx Version: 9.0 (PASS)

Device Reset: (PASS)

The device was last self-calibrated on: 12/10/2009 12:11:14 PM

Running Calibration ...   FAILED for the following reason: 

Error -200545 occurred at DAQmx Self

Possible reason(s):

Self-calibration failed.  The self-calibration date has not changed.

Disconnect the device from external signals, as they might introduce noise.  Externally calibrate the device to recalibrate the onboard voltage reference that is used for self-calibration.
