|You need to post the model number, and the type number, the last of which is on a black label on the bottom of the machine, near the bar code.|
With that info, assuming it's new enough, we can direct you to IBM's support site where you can download the user and the "hardware maintenance manual." The number you posted sounds like the RAM, but it doesn't sound right. For whatever reason, it's not booting from the hard drive.
Had it been working, or did you just buy it?
Do you know how to get into the bios "easy setup?" check the drive boot order.
START WITH THE MACHINE OFF,
PRESS AND HOLD the "F1" key
WHILE HOLDING "F1" turn the machine on
AND CONTINUE TO HOLD the "F1" key.
You should see "easy setup"
Click on "start up"
Click on "power on"
Click "reset" if need be, then select what you want for devices. I usually put floppy, CDROM, and HDD
is an example of the error list for the 600X, part of which probably applies for other models. This info is in the hardware manual for your particular machine, but we need to know what that is
If that error is indeed a "system board" error, things could be bad, but before I start condemming the system board, I'd do some diagnostics, part of which are in the bios---again, refer to the manual
Also, strip the machine down. Pull EVERYTHING you can out of it, including the hdd, extra memory, PCMCIA cards. You may, later, even want to pull LAN/modem card out.
Try booting to a known good CD or floppy
