Tru64 5.1B can't start up CDE on one DS15 but another DS15

I have a strange problem.

One DS15 cannot start up CDE ,the monitor display nothing when start up CDE procedure,but the system is not hang.when I try to connect COM1 with a serial cable and boot with multiuser option from serial (>>>boot -fl A ),this time the system can start up Multiuser mode ,when I login I get a mail which said "System panic: panic (cpu 0): platform not supported by this kernel
configuration ".Meanwhile DS15'S monitor still display nothing.

The more strange thing is I detach the disk from this DS15 and connect it to another DS15 ,and boot from it ,then I can see the CDE graphic login windows.

What's the problem?

Hi,

Try to use a monitor with higher display range like 17" or higher, may be your problem is your monitor is out of the range of the display card resolution.

Best Regards,

Hello
Do both machines have same graphics card?
How is console variable set (>>> show console)?
Did you try to boot with generic kernel (>>> boot -file genvmunix)?
Also, there is a possibillity that the card is faulty.

Thank a lot.

I've tried all your advise but still have problem.

The monitor is 19" LCD which can display normally one another DS15.

Both machine have same display adapter ATI 7500 and I tried to change them but no use.

Finally, I resolved problem by replacing the MLB(Mother Logic Board).

Someone advise me to re-build the kernel,but I have no chance to have a try.Cause problem is solved.
