i have an PXIe-1084 chassis with seven PXI-Cards installed. Last week i installed an eighth card (PXI-6514) at the eighth slot. After i switched the chassis on, my Laptop, which is connected via Thunderbolt to the chassis, crashes with a bluescreen.
I already tried:
- install all eight cards -> bluescreen
- install a different PXI-6514 -> bluescreen
- switch places with one of the old cards and the PXI-6514 -> bluescreen
- remove one of the old cards and install the PXI-6514 at the slot from the old card -> works
- remove one of the old cards and install the PXI-6514 at the ninth slot from chassis -> bluescreen
- check the current consumption of the cards -> far below of the limit of the chassis
- update NIDAQmx-Driver -> still bluescreen
So it seems evertime i install a PXI-Card in a higher slot then the seventh slot, i get a bluescreen. Its always the same bluescreen:
Has someone an idea how to fix this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Have you tried to discover the system on a different laptop or update thunderbolt drivers on current one?
Thanks for the clues.
I updated the thunderbolt driver -> still bluescreen
Tried another PC -> everything works fine....
So the problem has to be on my laptop. The pc was brandnew and i installed only the driver needed for the chassis and PXI-Cards, so maybe there are some driver on my laptop which causes the error. It is my development laptop, so there are a lot of driver and software on it.
Somebody an idea how to get the driver which causes the bluescreen?
After some help with the NI Support, we found the problem.
If you connect your PXI Chassis via thunderbolt daisy chain, you will get the bluescreen. (I connected a docking station via thunderbolt and connected the chassis to the docking station.) If you connect the chassis at the first place in the daisy chain, everything works fine. (Laptop -> PXI-Chassis -> DockingStation)
The support gave me some kind of beta driver, which solved the problem finally. Maybe it will be part of the next driver update.
