For future reference for those having a Sun Blade 1000, if the first of
your two video cards is bad, the workstation will not successfully
complete the Boot PROM test to move on to the Openboot sequence.  The
only indication of the issue comes from monitoring via TTYA connection
in that the Boot PROM routine does not complete its diagostics.  From
that point on it is a matter of pulling the cards and trying the
permutations.

Hello All, 

The Sun Blade 1000 for our 8200 was shutdown to move some monitors.  Now
it does not want to boot correctly.  The monitors receive no signal and
it seems as thought the keyboard and mouse are not responding either.
The Sun logo lights up and the power button seems to cycle as it is
supposed to, but there is otherwise no reponse.  I have also tried
communicating through the serial port without success and the system
doesn't appear to get to the point of loading the network info either as
I cannot ping it that way either.  Has anyone had this experience with
their Sun Blade 1000 and have a solution?  Thank you for your help.

Craig
