The Question is:

During power-on of a VAX 4300 system it fails during the systems test on number
 60.  We do have spare parts but I don't know what part to replace.   Where can
 we find the list of these numbers and which test they represent ?
The error on the console is :
(the display is a messed up but it fails on nummber 60 and comes with access
16:33:10  KA670-Performing normal system tests.

The Answer is :

  Please contact your hardware services organization for assistance
  with troubleshooting this and other hardware-level system errors.
  You will want to acquire the actual footprint of the error as it
  is displayed, as the text provided is sufficiently corrupted and
  difficult to decode with any certainty.  You will also want to
  acquire general information on the KA670 console firmware version
  and on the VAX 4000 model 300 system I/O and memory hardware
  For pointers to the Assisted Services program and the available
  hardware documentation -- should you wish to service your system
  hardware directly -- please see the OpenVMS FAQ.
