111 * PS/2 - 80286 type protect mode test
112 * PS/2 - watchdog time out (NAC adapter failure)
112 * PS/2 - test 80386 new extended registers
113 * PS/2 - DMA arbitration time out (NAC adapter failure)
113 * PS/2 - test 80386 new instructions
113 error may occur during advanced or customer level diagnostics
if the ESDI controller has been set to an arbitration
level of 4 through the configuration menu. This problem only
occurs when using Reference diskettes version 1.03 and lower.
114 * PS/2 - external ROM checksum error
114 * PS/2 - test 80386 32-bit addressing mode
115 * PS/2 - test 80386 protect mode (80386 TSSs, VM8086, Paging)
121 Unexpected hardware interrupts occurred.
121 * PS/2 - test hot reset of processor
131 Cassette wrap test failed.
131 * PS/2 - test DMA compatibility registers
132 * PS/2 - test DMA extended registers
133 * PS/2 - test DMA verify logic
134 * PS/2 - test DMA arbitration logic
151 (NAC bad battery)
152 * PS/2 - real time clock or CMOS error (NAC indicates power on
password is installed)
152 error during diagnostics with Reference Diskette version
1.00. This may be a false error code due to a power on
password being set. Later versions of the Reference
diskette will not produce this false error when advanced
diagnostics are run on a PS/2 when the user has a password set.
 
160 * PS/2 - planar ID not recognized
(Often, the I/O channel riser card is not firmly plugged in)
161 Systems options not set (run SETUP)
162 Systems options not set (run SETUP)
162 error during post. Many customers are experiencing this
error code when booting if the 5.25" External Disk Drive
is not powered on before the system unit. The 5.25" External
Drive must be powered on before the system unit.
162 error during post. This may be caused by installing the
5.25" External Diskette drive cable backwards. The cable
which runs from the 5.25" External drive adapter/a to the
connecter box in the drive B position must be installed so
that the colored stripe is towards the back of the machine.
Also ensure that when the connector has been installed that
it is on all the pins on the connecter box. It is possible
to miss pins because there is not 'key' to prevent the user
from shifting the cable connecter.
163 Time & date not set (run SETUP)
163 * PCC - Real-time clock not updating
164 Memory Size Error (run SETUP).
165 * PS/2 - systems options not set - card ID mismatch (run SETUP)
165 error message will be displayed on a model PS/2 70 or 80
after the machine is booted with version 1.03 or 1.04 of the
reference diskette that does not have all the Adapter
Definition Files (.adf) required by the machine.
This problem will be fixed by a future release of the
reference diskette.
166 * PS/2 - card busy error (NAC adapter failure)
167 * PS/2 - clock not updating
169 * Set Configuration / Features
170 * PCC - LCD not in use when suspended (possible operator error)
171 * PCC - Base 128K checksum failure
171 I/O Card Failure / Battery
172 * PCC - Diskette active when suspended (possible operator error)
172 Static RAM
173 * PCC - Real-time clock RAM verification error
173 * PCC - Diskette in use when suspended.
174 * PCC - LCD configuration changed (possible operator error)
181 Unknown Adapter
191 82385 Cache Failure
194 System Board Memory
199 User indicated configuration not correct.

201 Memory test failed - Data miscompare,

parity error or bad adapter.
 
0yzz = 1st 64K bank (000-064K) 5yzz = 6th 64K bank (320-384K)
1yzz = 2nd 64K bank (064-128K) 6yzz = 7th 64K bank (384-448K)
2yzz = 3rd 64K bank (128-192K) 7yzz = 8th 64K bank (448-512K)
3yzz = 4th 64K bank (192-256K) 8yzz = 9th 64K bank (512-576K)
4yzz = 5th 64K bank (256-320K) 9yzz =10th 64K bank (576-640K)
 
If you have a PC-I ( 64K motherboard ), the "y" code identifies
the bad 16K bank:
 
x0zz = 1st 16K bank (00-16K) x8zz = 3rd 16K bank (32-48K)
x1zz = 2nd 16K bank (16-32K) xCzz = 4th 16K bank (48-64K)
 
The "zz" code gives the bad data bit (individual chip):
 
xy00 = parity bit xy10 = data bit 4
xy01 = data bit 0 xy20 = data bit 5
xy02 = data bit 1 xy40 = data bit 6
xy04 = data bit 2 xy80 = data bit 7
xy08 = data bit 3 xyAA = empty bank - check switches
xyFF = empty bank - check switches
 
For example, the error code 4810 201 would be interpreted:
 
4 = 5th 64K bank ( if the motherboard had 256K installed, then
the 5th bank is the first on an expansion board )
8 = don't care ( applies only to 16-64K PC-I motherboards )
10 = data bit 4 ( fifth chip after the parity chip )
 
202 Memory address error (Lines 0-15)
203 * PS/2 - memory address error or refresh failure (Lines 16-23)
204 * PS/2 - relocated memory (run diagnostics again)
205 * PS/2 - CMOS error
207 * PS/2 - ROM failure
211 * PS/2 - base 64K on I/O channel failed / Put memory into machine!
215 * PS/2 - base 64K on daughter card 2 card failed
(Card possibly plugged into the wrong slot!)
216 * PS/2 - base 64K on daughter card 1 card failed
(Card possibly plugged into the wrong slot!)
221 * PS/2 - ROM to RAM mapping error (an error occurred while
copying ROM BIOS to RAM; this error 'latches', and will not
go away until the memory is fixed, and SETUP run).
225 Memory may be wrong type, defective, or not fast enough.
 

3xx Various keyboard, keyboard cable, or keyboard controller
errors
301 Keyboard did not respond to software reset correctly or a
stuck key failure was detected. If a stuck key was detected, the
scan code for the key is displayed (as "301 xx", or "xx-0301").
301 error during post of 50/60/70 or 80 may be caused by having
the keyboard plugged into the mouse port. The two ports look
exactly the same. The keyboard port is denoted by a raised
icon of the keyboard above the keyboard port. The mouse and
keyboard ports on the 8530 and 8525 are functionally the same
so either component can be plugged into either port.
301/8602 error during post will occur if the machine has been
powered on within 1 minute after having powered the machine
off. The user must wait for the machine to settle at least
2 minutes before powering on. The DASDDRVR.SYS device driver
is on the Reference Diskettes version 1.02 and higher.
To install this driver first boot DOS and then insert the
Reference Diskette in drive A and type "A:install".
DASDDRVR.SYS is required for DOS 3.3 and DOS 4.0.
XX 301 error during post. The XX is some hexadecimal value that
represents the assigned keyboard key value. This error may
be caused by some object resting on the keyboard. If more
than one key is depressed during POST then error 8602 will
also appear.
302 User indicated error from the keyboard test.
303 Keyboard or system board error
304 * PS/2 - system board error
304 * PCC - keyboard cable not attached
305 * PS/2 - keyboard +5v error (bad 3A fuse)
305 post error with continuous beeping may occur intermittently
when booting a PS/2 50/60 or 80. The fuse located on the
system board may be loose in the mounting brackets. Remove
the fuse from the fuse holder and carefully form the fuse
holder contacts inward. This will ensure that the fuse is
held tightly when re-inserted.
305 8525 (286) error at POST with no beep and doesn't fall through F1 key
to allow diskette boot - replace system board under ECA 082

401 error message may be displayed with advanced diagnostics
on a PS/2 model 70 parallel port with a wrap plug connected
using IBM PS/2 Model 70/80 Reference Diskette version 1.03.
