Octane - Red Light Bar PROM Error

Unread postby jack3k » Tue Feb 28, 2017 8:47 am

Hey everyone! Got an issue with SGI Octane, hope to find solutions here.
First of all, I want to point out that it's not actually problem that I have, cos I'm not good with computers, so a friend of mine is helping me with ressurecting that badboy, but his english is even worse than mine, so... :D
This machine has been used for pretty long time for the purposes I dont even know.
So. The problem is, that after pressing the button Octane starts. The red light bar comes on - as my friend told me, it means that it's PROM loading error.
Yet the machine is working, hard drives are spinnin, quote "The screen is black, yet the signal is transmitted - there is picture".

As my friend told me, this issue can be fixed by replacing the chip (did he mean CPU?), but he told me that's not an option rn.
Hope to get any help or advices here, thanks!
