Symptom-to-FRU Index
The Symptom-to-FRU index lists error symptoms and possible causes. The most likely cause is listed first.
Always begin with Chapter 4, “General Checkout,” on page 11. This index can also be used to help you
decide which FRUs to have available when servicing a computer. If you are unable to correct the problem
using this index, go to “Undetermined problems” on page 20.
Notes:
If you have both an error message and an incorrect audio response, diagnose the error message first.
If you cannot run the diagnostic tests or you get a diagnostic error code when running a test but did
receive a POST error message, diagnose the POST error message first.
If you did not receive any error message look for a description of your error symptoms in the first part of
this index.
