Hi Managers,
Thanks for all the help on my dead SparcStation IPC's no one actually hit on my
problem but I had a brainwave.
The problem turned out to be lack of memory, to be precise the machine had 8x1MB
simms in the the banks looking from the back they are top right and none in the
4 banks top left. When I filled the remaining 4 banks with simms the machine
fired up first time.

Thanks again to:-

Hi Managers,
I have just acquired 2 SparcStation IPC to play with but they seem to be dead.
When I connect a SUN type 5 keyboard and a GDM20D10 monitor to the onboard or
the S-Bus cgthree graphics I get no display.
I can hear the drive start and the keyboard beeps as normal.
Do I have dead NVRAM's ?
