Port Replicator Checkout
Do the following procedures to isolate a port replicator problem.
A port replicator attaches to the system expansion connector at the rear of the computer:
Turn off the computer.
Remove the failing devices from the replicator.
Unplug the AC adapter from the replicator, if attached.
Remove the port replicator from the computer.
Reconnect the failing device directly to the computer. (If another device occupies the connector, remove it first.)
'Running the Diagnostics'
and run the diagnostics.
If the advanced diagnostic device test does not find an error, suspect a problem with the port replicator or the system expansion bus.
Turn off the computer and reconnect the port replicator.
Turn on the computer and run the following advanced diagnostic tests:
Serial port test with the wrap plug installed on the replicator.
Parallel port test with the wrap plug installed on the replicator.
If diagnostic errors appear, replace the replicator or diskette drive attachment unit.
If the problem remains after the replacement, replace the system board.
If power problems appear only when the replicator is used, replace the replicator.
