Checkout Guide (WorkPad z50 - 2608)

  Checkout Guide

Use the following procedure as a guide for computer problems.

  1.  Obtain the failing symptoms in as much detail as possible.
  2.  Verify the symptoms by attempting to re-create the  failure by running the diagnostic test  (refer to 'Running the Diagnostics Test') or by  repeating the same operation.

    Note:   To run the diagnostics test, refer to 'Running the Diagnostics'.
     If the symptoms are intermittent and cannot be re-created  (and therefore not verified), go to 'Symptom-to-FRU Index'  and then go to 'Intermittent Problems'.

  3.  Use the following table with the verified symptom to determine which section to go to.
     Search the symptoms column, and find the description that best  matches your symptom, then go to the page shown in the (below) Refer To column.
