QAPlus - Error Codes

For SCSI-RAID symptoms refer to SCSI-RAID / SERVER's (HINTs - TIPs)

For PCs (e.g. Aptiva 2134-2176) shipped with a Diagnostics and Utilities CD.
Before beginning, ensure that Rapid Resume is disabled in the Setup Utility, then :
  1.  Install the Diagnostics and Utilities CD in the CD-ROM drive.
  2.  Power-off, then power-on the system unit.
  3.  Do NOT press F1 during POST.
  4.  If any POST error appear after POST, make a note of the errors and press the Esc key.
  5.  When the Diagnostics and Utilities Menu  screen is displayed, type: zero for a DOS prompt,  then change the DOS prompt to G:
  6.  Type QAPLPRO/XXX (where /XXX represent Command Line Options)  then press Enter.

This General Checkout procedure is for all computers that are supported by the QAPlus/PRO Diagnostics test.

Diagnostic error messages appear when a test program finds a problem with a hardware option. For the test programs to properly determine if a test Passed, Failed, or Aborted , the test programs check the error-return code at test completion. (See 'Return Codes'.)

For application program or operating system error messages, refer to the information supplied with that software package.
