Since you have another working Alpha, you can perform a quick test by

I guess I could do that! However... (I'll explain below).
If it fails to boot in this way you have a problem with memory,
CPU or mother board, if it boots you have a problem with the disk
The thing is, as I wrote in my previous reply to John Wallace, that
the memory would not seem like a likely culprit; considering that
the DIMMs from the 'broken DS10' appear to work flawlessly in the
'working DS10' and that the DIMMs from the 'broken DS10' work just
fine in the 'working DS10'.
Furthermore, as far as disk controllers go: I have removed all SCSI
HBAs and in the end tried with just IDE-[P]ATA disks. The SCSI disks
would actually give more and partially allow booting (accompanied with
a large amount of access violations and other errors), but the IDE-
[P]ATA disks would not even boot up and the systems hang at the boot-
strap code loading phase.
I'm not familiar with the types of CPU and motherboard failures. One
of the few things I could do, is vacuum, dust-bust and clean possible
contacts with alcohol-soaked swabs, see if that changes anything.
I remember I cleaned the contacts of the PCI riser board and individual
PCI cards, after which they'd work fine.
(The processor in DS10s is fixed onto the motherboard, isn't it? As
far as I can tell, it's not socketed.)
Where are you located? I have numerous spare DS10s here that can be
used to try to narrow this down. I would check for proper functioning
of the CPU fan. Check the temp reading. Also, try changing out hte
power supply with one from a working system. Marginal power levels
can cause strange behavior also. While not likely, it would prove a
Keep use posted and Email me should you want to swap parts.
