Hello- In my computer lan I have a machine that goes straight to a blinking cursor on a black screen. Solid green light on power button. Drive lights up when disk is inserted. No beep codes but diagnostic lights 1,2,3 are lit. According to manual:
An other failure has occurred.
This pattern also displays during System Setup and may not indicate a problem.
I have checked that RAM and cables are correctly seated. I also checked the capacitors on the motherboard for damage or bulging tops per another discussion. I am still getting this issue. I have other GX620s I can cannabalize from but I don't know what to narrow it down to. It would be great if it is't a hardware issue too (there are NO peripherals at all). Thank you for your time, help, and suggestions.
First thing you might try is clearing BIOS setup:

*If battery is more than ~2-3 years old, this might be a good time for a new one. It's a 3-volt lithium ion coin cell battery, ~$2-$3 at discount stores.
