Chapter 2. Power On Self Tests (POST)/Problem Isolation
Chapter 2.1 Introduction
This section provides a list of assemblies checked by the Power On Self Test
(POST) and a brief description of the types of error codes. The section also
contains preliminary steps to problem isolation of an error condition and a
problem isolation flowchart for quick reference.
Chapter 2.2 Power On Self Test (POST)
A series of diagnostic tests automatically run on every COMPAQ Personal
Computer system when the system is turned on. These tests are called the
Power On Self Test (POST).
POST checks the following assemblies to ensure that the computer system is
functioning properly:
o
o
o
o
o
o
o
o
o
Keyboard
Power Supply
System Board
Video Display Controller Board
Fixed Disk Drive Controller Board
Diskette/Printer Controller Board
Asynchronous Communications/Clock Board
System Board
Memory
POST also detects the type(s) of mass storage device(s) installed in the
computer.
When the computer is turned on, POST automatically starts and runs. If POST
finds an error in the system, error codes (in the form of beeps) are heard or
error codes (numbers) are visible on the monitor. See Chapter 5, "Error
Messages and Codes," for an explanation of error codes.
Chapter 2.3 Preliminary Steps to Problem Isolation
If you encounter an error condition, complete the following preliminary steps
before starting problem isolation.
1.
Place the ON/OFF switch in the OFF position.
2.
Disconnect the signal cables of any peripheral devices (printers, modems,
and so on) from the computer.
3.
Remove the upper access panel and board slots access cover (see Chapter 7,
"Removal and Replacement Procedures.")
When the upper access panel is removed, the system LED, located on the
system board between the expansion slots, is visible.
4.
Remove all non COMPAQ options (board, drives, and so on) from the
computer.
5.
Install a loopback plug connector in the parallel port and the
asynchronous port and any other location that requires a loopback plug.
NOTE: If you want to test your printer during the printer test or to log
errors to a printer, reconnect the printer now.
6.
Verify that the AC power cable is connected to a usable power outlet.
7.
Insert the latest version of the COMPAQ DIAGNOSTICS Program diskette into
drive A and close the drive door.
8.
Place the ON/OFF switch in the ON position. See Chapter 4, "DIAGNOSTIC
Procedures," for detailed information on problem isolation.
Chapter 2.4 Problem Isolation Flowchart
The problem isolation flowchart provides a quick reference for identifying and
correcting possible problems that may occur during POST. The flowchart gives
troubleshooting procedures for identifying malfunctions and replacing major
assemblies in the computer and directs you to Chapter 4, "Diagnostic
Procedures," and to Chapter 5, "Error Messages and Codes," for more detailed
troubleshooting information.
Chapter 3. Setup
Please consult the SUPPORT SOFTWARE MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE GUIDE for current
information on SETUP.
Chapter 4. Diagnostic Procedures
Please consult the SUPPORT SOFTWARE MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE GUIDE for current
information on DIAGNOSTICS.
Chapter 5. Error Messages and Codes
Chapter 5.1 Introduction
This section provides Power On Self Test error messages, DIAGNOSTIC error
codes, and memory error codes.
The messages and codes are given in tables that list the message or error
code, a description of the error, and the probable failure or required action
to resolve the error condition.
Chapter 5.2 Power On Self Test Error Messages
This section is divided into two tables. The first table contains Power On
Self Test error messages for the COMPAQ PORTABLE 286 Personal Computer. The
second table contains Power On Self Test error messages for the COMPAQ
Portable and COMPAQ PLUS Personal Computers.
An error message results if a problem is encountered during the Power On Self
Test program. This program runs automatically when the system is turned on.
The tables list the messages, the audible (beep) message, and the probable
failure.

Chapter 5.3 Diagnostic Error Codes
DIAGNOSTIC error codes occur if the system recognizes a problem while running
the COMPAQ DIAGNOSTICS Program. These error codes help identify possible
defective subassemblies.
Table 5.3 lists all possible error codes, a description of the error
condition, and the action required to resolve the error condition.
In each case, the required action lists prioritized steps necessary to
correct the problem. After each step is completed, run DIAGNOSTICS to verify
whether the error condition has been corrected. If the error code reappears,
perform the next step, then run the DIAGNOSTICS Program. Follow this
procedure until the DIAGNOSTICS Program no longer detects an error condition.
For assistance in the removal and replacement of a particular subassembly, see
Chapter 7, "Removal and Replacement Procedures."

Chapter 5.4 Memory Error Codes
This section is divided into two parts. The first part contains memory error
codes for the COMPAQ PORTABLE 286 Personal Computer. The second part contains
memory error codes for the COMPAQ Portable and COMPAQ PLUS Personal Computers.
Memory error codes result when the system detects a memory fault during the
Power On Self Test or as a result of a diagnostic test. The test programs
attempt to isolate the memory fault to a specific chip, then generate a
memory error code that specifies which memory chip to replace. In some
cases, replacing the memory chip will not solve the problem because: 1) the
system may be unable to accurately determine which chip or chips are at
fault, or 2) the problem may be due to a failure in the memory support
circuitry, not the memory device.
The memory error code points to a specific memory address. The physical
location of the memory address depends on the type of system, the number and
type of memory boards installed, and the type of memory device used (64 Kbyte
RAMs or 256 Kbyte RAMs).
COMPAQ PORTABLE 286 Memory Error Codes
Memory error codes are in the XX000B YYZZ format.
o
XX equals the 128 Kbyte memory segment (bank) in which an error is
detected.
o
000 is always equal to 000 (not used)
o
B identifies whether the defective memory chip is in the high byte or the
low byte of the memory bank.
o
When B = 0, YY defines the defective chip row location within the low byte
of the memory bank.
o
When B = 1, ZZ defines the defective chip row location within the high byte
of the memory bank.
For example, assume error code 020001 0010 appears on the monitor. First
determine which table to reference (see COMPAQ PORTABLE 286 Memory
Configuration). Next, determine which bank to reference and which byte, high
or low. Finally, determine the defective chip row location. In this example,
error code 020001 0010 specifies chip U50 in Table 5.4-1. Use the following
charts to locate a defective memory chip:

SW1 tells the system the number of diskette drives available, the type of
display to be expected, and whether an 8087 coprocessor is used in the system.
SW2 tells the system the amount of available RAM.
NOTE: If the ROMs installed in socket(s) U40 (and U47 if available) are
Revision C or above, SW2 is ignored. Therefore, on system boards of
Revision J or above, SW2 has been removed.
If Revision C ROMs or above are installed, 256K x 1 RAM chips may be used
instead of 64K x 1 bit RAM chips in banks 2 and 3 of the system board. To do
this, however, a new decoder PROM must be used in socket U35:
o PN 101257-001 (No longer available) if banks 2 and 3 are filled with
256K x 1 RAM chips for a total of 640 Kbytes.
o
PN 101256-001 if only bank 3 is filled with 256K x 1 RAM chips for a
total of 448 Kbytes.
Board Version 2
Bank 0 contains 64 Kbytes of soldered in memory in two, 64K x 4 RAM chips.
Bank 1 also contains 64 Kbytes of soldered in memory in two, 64K x 4 RAM
chips, for a system total of 128 Kbytes. A chip for the parity bit is
installed for each bank.
Bank 2 consists of eight sockets that can be populated with either 64K x 1 RAM
chips or 256K x 1 RAM chips.
Bank 3 also consists of eight sockets that can be populated either with
64K x 1 RAM chips or 256K x 1 RAM chips.

using MS-DOS.
If you are testing a COMPAQ PORTABLE 286, the DIAGNOSTICS routine checks the
format on the diskette before each test. You see a prompt similar to:
DISKETTE IN DRIVE IS FORMATTED
FOR 360K (OR 1.2 MEG)
IS THIS THE CORRECT FORMAT
The number
is 8. For
sectors is
the number
(Y/N)
of tracks for a 320 Kbyte diskette is 40 and the number of sectors
a 360 Kbyte diskette, the number of tracks is 40 and the number of
9. For a 1.2 megabyte diskette, the number of tracks is 80 and
of sectors is 15.
Adjusting the Speed
Each time the index hole of a soft sectored diskette passes the index detector
circuitry, this circuitry automatically generates a signal pulse. As the
diskette rotates, the diskette drive speed stabilizes (usually within 5 to
6 seconds), and the speed test program can calculate the time span between
these index pulses.
1.
If you followed the preliminary steps to the point of selecting the
diskette speed test from the diskette diagnostic menu, you see a message
showing the current rotation speed of the diskette drive being tested. A
display similar to the following appears:
THE DISKETTE DRIVE SPEED IS 1667
THE SPEED SHOULD BE IN THE RANGE 1640 TO 1690
PRESS ANY KEY TO EXIT THE TEST
NOTE: The rotational speed value is sometimes displayed in two formats.
Both formats express the same value, but in different terms. The speed
adjustment procedure usually refers to the value in parentheses (that is,
the value expressed in ms).
2.
Wait approximately 5 to 6 seconds, or until you see the displayed value
stabilize. Remember that this is a continuously cycling test on a COMPAQ
Portable or COMPAQ PLUS. The values will continue to scroll up the
display. If you are testing a COMPAQ PORTABLE 286, the speed will not
scroll after it has stabilized.
3.
Check the value for diskette rotational speed. The optimum speed range
for the COMPAQ Portable or COMPAQ PLUS Personal Computers 360 Kbyte
Diskette Drive is from 196.0 to 204.0 ms. The optimum speed range for a
COMPAQ PORTABLE 286 Personal Computer 1.2 Megabyte Diskette Drive is from
164 ms to 170 ms.
4.
If the displayed value is out of the specified parameters, locate the
speed adjustment potentiometer on the printed circuit board attached to
the diskette drive. See Chapter 7, "Removal and Replacement
Procedures," for the location of the 360 Kbyte diskette drive and the
1.2 megabyte diskette drive.
5.
Use a small, flat bladed screwdriver and turn the adjustment screw
slightly.
If the displayed value is greater than the specified parameters, turn the
adjustment screw clockwise; if the displayed value is less than the specified
parameters, turn the adjustment screw counterclockwise.
Keep turning the speed adjustment screw in small increments until the speed of
the diskette drive is within plus or minus 1 percent of the specified value.
NOTE:
The diskette drive(s) in the COMPAQ Portable, COMPAQ PLUS, and the
COMPAQ PORTABLE 286 Personal Computers will operate properly at a speed
within plus or minus 2 percent of the specified value. However, it is good
practice to adjust the speed to within plus or minus 1 percent of the
specified value.
6.
After you adjust the diskette drive speed, press any key to exit from the
test program.
7.
Turn off the system power, remove the diskette drive power and signal
extension cables, and reinstall the diskette drive.

Procedures."
See Chapter 7, "Removal and Replacement
2.
Place your computer in a standard working position with the outer access
cover removed.
3.
Insert the DIAGNOSTICS diskette in the computer and load the DIAGNOSTICS
program. (See Chapter 4, "DIAGNOSTIC Procedures," for more information
on the Advanced Diagnostics program.)
4.
Select the video display alignment procedure from the video display unit
test menu and press ENTER.
After you select the video display adjustment procedure, the screen will
appear completely blank. This is normal program operation.
5.
Turn the external BRIGHTNESS knob (located on the front bezel) fully
clockwise.
6.
Before making any adjustments, become familiar with Figure 8.11-1, which
shows the locations of controls on the high voltage access plate.
7.
Using the label on the high voltage access plate as a guide, locate and
adjust the BRITE control until the screen raster appears on the display.
Check this display to make sure it is not tilted in any way.
NOTE: Do not use excessive force when making adjustments on the video
display unit.
8.
Turn the BRIGHTNESS control knob until the raster disappears.
9.
Using the VDU alignment procedure contained in the DIAGNOSTICS program,
fill the display screen with a character (see Chapter 4, "DIAGNOSTIC
Procedures," for more information on the VDU alignment test screen).
10.
Using a plastic adjustment tool, turn the WIDTH adjustment potentiometer
(pot) until the left and right edges of the display screen fall within
the range specified on the adjustment template. Width may change between
high and low resolution mode and should be adjusted for a good
compromise.
NOTE: When making adjustments on the video display unit do not use
excessive force.
11.
If the characters on your display appear blurry or fuzzy, a focus
adjustment is necessary. Using a plastic adjustment tool, adjust the
pot labeled FOCUS until all characters are clear and sharp.
12.
If the characters on your display appear too short or too tall, a
character height adjustment is necessary. Using the VDU adjustment
diagnostic program, fill the screen with capital Es.
13.
Two adjustments control the character height. The first is the MASTER HT
control pot, which controls the height of characters in both the high
and low resolution text mode.
NOTE:
Do not use excessive force when making adjustments on the video
display unit.
14.
Use the CTRL + ALT + < command to place the display in the low resolution
graphics mode. Press and hold down the CTRL and the ALT key and press
the less than (<)key. Then release all three keys. Using the adjustment
tool, adjust the MASTER HT control pot so that all characters appear at
the desired height.
NOTE: Do not use excessive force when making adjustments on the video
display unit.
15.
Use the CTRL + ALT + > command to place the display in the high
resolution mode. Press and hold down the CTRL key and the ALT key.
Press the greater than (>) key. Then release all three keys. Using
the adjustment tool, adjust the HI SCAN HT control pot so that all
characters appear at the desired height.
16.
If characters on your display appear taller or shorter near the top of
the display than those near the bottom, a vertical linearity adjustment
is necessary. Using the VDU adjustment diagnostic, see Chapter 4,
"DIAGNOSTIC Procedures," for more information on the VDU adjustment
program.
17.
Using a plastic adjustment tool, turn the VERTICAL LIN control pot until
all characters appear equal in height.
NOTE:
18.
1.
This adjustment may affect the character height enough to
warrant a readjustment for character height.
2.
If the vertical linearity control does not exist on your video
display unit, it is preset and controlled by the video display
unit.
3.
Steps 13 and 14 should be repeated after each adjustment until
the display is equal.
If your display is shifted to the right or left, a horizontal display
centering adjustment is necessary. Two pots control the centering of the
display. One is the MASTER VID CTR pot, which shifts the display in both
a high and low resolution mode. The other one is the HI SCAN CTR pot,
which affects the display in high resolution mode.
NOTE: Do not use excessive force when making adjustments on the video
display unit.
19.
Use the CTRL + ALT + < command to place the display in the low resolution
graphics mode. Using the adjustment tool, adjust the MASTER VID CTR pot
so that the display is in the center of the screen.
20.
Use the CTRL + ALT + > command to place the display in the high
resolution mode. Using the adjustment tool, adjust the HI SCAN CTR pot
so that the display is in the center of the screen.
If your display experiences a problem other than those covered in the previous
20 steps, replace the video display unit.
