Use the following strategy to prevent unnecessary expense for replacing and servicing parts

1. If you are instructed to replacing a part but the replacement does not correct the problem, reinstall the

original part before you continue.

2. Some computers have both a processor board and system board. If you are instructed to replace either

the processor board or the system board, and replacing one of them does not correct the problem,

reinstall that board, and then replace the other one.

3. If an adapter or device consists of more than one part, any of the parts (FRUs) may be the cause of the

error. Before replacing the adapter or device, remove the parts (FRUs), one by one, to see if the

symptoms change. Replace only the part that changed the symptoms.
