Just click and give up, no console output.

This e3500 actually had a bad PPS when i first got it, but it still 
powered up because the one in front still worked.  I still have that 
failed one, so I'll give it a try...

Sure enough, that was it.  Machine powers up with the "Bad" PPS, does 
nothing with the "Even Worse" PPS.  Guess it's time to add a saved 
search on ebay for one of those.
