2.4 POST Error Messages
If the system is not functioning well enough to run POST, or if the display is not
functioning well enough to show POST error messages, refer to the Troubleshooting
tables in Section 2.6.
If POST detects an error, one of the following events occurs:
■ A message with the prefix "WARNING" appears informing you where the error
occurred. The system pauses until you press F1 to continue.
■ A message with the prefix "FATAL" appears informing you where the error
occurred. After the message, the system emits a series of beeps and stops.
■ The system emits a series of beeps and stops.
Warning messages indicate that a potential problem, such as a system configuration
error, exists. When F1 is pressed, the system should resume. You should be able to
correct problems that produce WARNING messages.
IMPORTANT: When a WARNING message includes the prompt to "RUN SCU," press
F10 to run Computer Setup. (Computer Setup replaces the SCU utility.)
