> Check the LED array on the front of the machine in the lower right
> corner. There are 7 LEDs, like this:
> BaseIO X
> QA X X PCI Expansion
> QD X X QB
> QC X X Heart
> The "BaseIO" and "Heart" LEDs should be lit, no matter what. The "Q"
> LEDs are XIO presence-detect indicators. When facing the rear of the
> machine, "A" is the upper-left slot, "B" is the upper-right, "C" is the
> lower-left, and "D" is the lower-right slot.
> If the LED corresponding to the card with the SE is not lit, the card
> isn't even alive enought to talk on the XIO bus, which probably
> indicates a munged compression connector or a cracked board.
> Also, make sure you have the SE card installed in slot "A". That's
> where the Octane expects the primary graphics card to live.
>  Many thanks to Ben Drago at SGI and Ralf Beyer for an explanation
