Checking Installed Devices

Checking Installed Devices

Installed devices are displayed as dark icons on the diagnostics screen. All other devices are displayed with gray icons.

If a device is installed but the icon appears gray rather than dark, the device is defective. Reseat the device connectors, and then restart diagnostics. If the symptom remains, replace the device or the system board. If needed, adjust the contrast control to clearly distinguish the shades of the icon.

If a device that is not installed appears in a dark shade, for example, if HDD-2 appears in a dark shade when a second hard disk drive is not installed, perform the following steps:
  1.  Replace the first   device, such as HDD-1.
  2.  If the problem persists, replace the relevant system board.

The PCMCIA, System Board, Display, and infrared transceiver icons are always displayed in a dark shade, because the icons represent subsystems of the system board and not attached devices. The parallel port icon is dark except when the diskette drive is attached to the parallel port, in that case, the FDD icon is dark and the parallel port icon is gray. Icons for devices attached through the MultiPort II are dark when the devices are attached, and are gray when the devices are removed from the MultiPort II.

The HDD-1 icon represents the first  drive in the system configuration. Similarly, the HDD-2 icon represents the second  drive, attached to the docking station.
