Use the following procedure as a guide for computer problems.

NOTE: The diagnostic tests are intended to test only IBM products. Non-IBM products, prototype cards, or modified options can give false errors and invalid system responses.

  When the Problem Determination Procedure in the operation manual that is supplied with the adapter or device says “Have the system unit serviced“, this means the computer and SelectaDock Docking System.
