After replacing FRUs, you need to install any removed parts, replace the cover, and reconnect any cables, including telephone lines and power cords. Also, depending on the FRU that is replaced, you might need to confirm the updated information in the Setup Utility program.

Note: When the power cord is first plugged in, the computer might appear to turn on for a few seconds and then turn off. This is a normal sequence to enable the computer to initialize.

  1. Ensure that all components have been reassembled correctly and that no tools or loose screws are left inside your computer.
  2. Make sure the cables are correctly routed and are retained by the cable clips.
