Checking the Installed Devices List

If a device is installed but the icon appears in a gray shade rather than a dark shade on the basic diagnostics screen, the device is defective. Reseat the device connectors. If the symptom remains, replace the device or the system board. If needed, adjust the contrast control to clearly distinguish the shades of the icon.

If a device that is not installed appears in a dark shade, (for example, FDD-2 appears in a dark shade when NO second FDD is installed ), do the following.
  1.  Replace the first  device, such as a FDD, HDD, or PCMCIA.
  2.  If the problem remains, replace the system board.

The Parallel, and Serial icons are always displayed in dark shade, because the icons represent subsystems of the system board and not attachment of the devices.

The FDD-1 icon represent the first drive in the system configuration for each type of device. For Model 560, FDD-1 represents an external diskette drive attached through the external diskette drive connector. Similary, the FDD-2 icon represent the second drive, usually attached through a port replicator.
