Diagnostic Lights

To help troubleshoot a problem, your computer has four lights labeled 1, 2, 3, and 4 on the bank panel. When the computer
starts normally, the lights flash before turning off. If the computer malfunctions, the sequence of the lights help to identify
the problem.
NOTE:
After the computer completes POST, all four lights turn off before booting to the operating system.
