You will need to find some way to sniff the traffic arriving on port 23 - setup a monitor port connected to a system with a packet sniffer running - and see what sort of broadcasts and from there perhaps find their source and fix it.

That or disable the disable port on excessive broadcast functionality.

To find the manuals, you can start at www.hp.com, click on Support & Drivers and enter your switch model number and follow your nose from there.
