Power On Self Test Failed: Memory check Blk test failed
Get this on my SunFire V100 on startup. It seems to check the memory,
spew up a load of error messages but then continue to boot to the OK
I assume this means some of my memory is screwed?
Whats the next step? Will the machine still work (its just a test
...SELF-TEST: immediately after "testing card" (card testing?), says FAILED
My hp50g is, as far as cards, etc, go, "fresh out of the 50g plastic".
Ie, I've done nothing about any "card" (nor do I even know
what it might be, or might be for).
So, this FAILED msg -- is that in fact a true ERROR (of my
machine's hardware, software, or whatever), or simply what
the self-test does when you haven't (yet) installed (or whatever)
(If so, sure would be nice if it *said* that!)

...DEC 2000 AXP fails system power up test
I came into possesion of an Alpha system labeled as a DEC 2000 axp system.
It had no video card so I stuck an old Paradise 8 bit VGA card in it,
connected a PC keyboard to the PS2 port, and powered it up.
I get a screen telling me it has ROM version 1.3 and SRM firmware version
309 followed by system power up tests. All componets, including the
keyboard, pass except the NVR which fails with a "00 0004" code.
These tests are followed by a message saying:
"Power-on self-test errors were detected. Continue NT boot (Y/N)?"
I thought this system had VMS on it but, whatever. T...Gateway 2000 Keyboard Error During Power On Self Test
I have just installed a Gateway 2000 computer as a fileserver. During the
power on self test, the computer stops with an error:
No Keyboard Attached, press F1 to continue.
I have not got a keyboard attached, but I really do want to continue to boot
even though there is no keyboard. I could not find an option in the BIOS
settings to not halt on a keyboard error. (BIOS revision 0AAES052.)
I access the computer remotely over the LAN, so no keyboard is required during
normal use. I have a shared keyboard, which I just plug in occasionally during

I have a VAXstation 4000/90 which is now displaying a system test failure on boot. At the end of the self check the following is displayed:
?? 000 8 SYS 0768
If I show errors I get:
>>> SHOW ERROR
?? 000 8 SYS 0300
(the last number being shown as 0300 this time rather than 0768).
Any idea ? thank you !
