If an error code, error message or error beeps is present, go to
'Index of Symptoms, Messages, Error Codes, or Beeps'.
If you did not receive any messages, error codes, or beeps, see if the symptom is listed in
'Error Symptoms List'.
If you still cannot solve the problem, continue with this check:
- Check the power supply voltages (See 'Power Supply Connectors and Voltages').
If the voltages are correct, return here and continue with the following steps:
- Power off the system unit.
- Perform the following checks, one by one, until you have isolated the
problem FRU (refer to 'Parts/Test Point Locations' for 2158 or
for 2163 for locations).
- Load default settings in setup.
- Check all system board jumper positions and switch settings.
- Check all adapter card jumper positions.
- Check all device jumper positions.
- Check all cables and connectors for proper installation.
- If the jumpers, switch, and voltage settings are correct, return here and continue:

- Non-IBM devices

- Any adapter card (modem card or video card, if installed)
- CD-ROM drive
- Diskette drive

- Power on the system unit.
- Repeat steps 2 through 5 until you find the failing device or adapter.
- If software related, reload software from Recovery CD.
