                         Easton, MD

All personal computer error codes for the Power On Self Test, General
Diagnostics, and Advanced Diagnostics consist of a device number followed by
two digits other than 00.  (The device number plus 00 indicates successful
completion of the test.)

This list is a compilation from various sources, including USENET's Info-IBMPC
Digest, IBM Technical Reference Manuals, and IBM Hardware, Maintenance and
Service manuals.

Code   Description

 01x   Undetermined problem errors.
 02x   Power supply errors.
 1xx   System board errors.
