0220Monitor type does not match CMOS Run SETUPMonitor type not correctly identified in Setup.N/A
0230Shadow RAM failed at offset : nnnnShadow RAM failed at offset nnnn of the 64k block at which the error was detected.N/A
0231System RAM failed at offset : nnnnSystem RAM failed at offset nnnn of in the 64k block at which the error was detected.N/A
0232Extended RAM Failed at offset : nnnnExtended memory not working or not configured properly at offset nnnnN/A
0250System battery is dead Replace and run SETUP
The CMOS clock battery indicator shows the battery is dead.Replace the battery and run Setup to reconfigure the system.
0251System CMOS checksum bad-default configurationSystem CMOS has been corrupted or modified incorrectly, perhaps by an application program that changes data stored in CMOS. The BIOS installed Default Setup Values. If you do not want these values, enter Setup and enter your own values. If the error persists, check the system battery or contact your dealer.Enter Setup to configure the system. If the error persists, check the system battery.
0260System timer errorThe timer test failed.Requires repair of system board.
