What happened in the next reboot? Did you see the screen?
After rebooting again, I still got a black screen.
Is it possible you have the Autoboot option turned on that is booting past the PBA?
The option is "Disable checking for Autoboot" in you Machine's>General settings.
In our configuration we have the Autoboot account un-checked for "Enabled" and on all machines checked "Disable checking for Autoboot".
When we need a group of machines to reboot and bypass the PBA, we enable the Autoboot user, uncheck "Disable checking for Autoboot", force a sync, then change the options back to re-instate the PBA and disable the Autoboot.
We need a little more info. For example, did you see our blue progress bar before getting to the black screen? Did you at least get past POST? The best thing would be a list like this, that shows everything you observed
1. Press power button
2. See POST
1. press the power
2. see post
3. get this message:
0271-Check date and time settings
0251-System CMOS checksum bad-default configuration used
F1 to resume
F2 to enter setup
4. select F1 to resume
5. black screen, no blue progress bar.
It almost look like dead CMOS battery or malfunctioning PSU.
That's interesting. I've never seen anything like that. Can you just remove with WinTech or SafeTech, then see if the problem persists? If the problem goes away, we might have to get your machine's make/model and test for compatibility ... or modify disk settings in the BIOS.
