When I last turned on my computer (PS/2 8590) it took a very long time to tell me this:
00967010  180A
I9990022
The hard drive led did not appear to go on, I was hoping there was an explanation of this error? Thanks.
Yes Roke and thanks, the site was very helpful.  There is an internal SCSI hard drive, (which type escapes me as I'm at work and it's dead at home).

Roke, after checking out the site for the errror codes and taking your input on the adapter, I openned it up and reset the card.  All is well, thank you.  Would you care for another one?

180X - PCI or Plug and Play adapter card resource error.

A PCI or Plug and Play adapter card has requested memory resources that are not available.

1. Choose ISA Legacy Resources from the Setup Utility main menu, and make sure the resource settings for ISA  legacy adapter cards are correct. If the resource settings are not correct, change the settings.

2. If all resources are being used by ISA legacy adapter cards, you might need to remove an ISA card to make memory available to the PCI or Plug and Play adapter card.

I hope this applies in some way.

Sorry for my haste. I just found some PS/2 model 90 information but most down here is just deduction.

The two longer strings seem to point at SCSI adapter, any SCSI device, SCSI cable or the system board. 180A looks very much like an adapter intialization timeout.

Do you have any SCSI devices installed?

In case I'm missing something:  http://www.can.ibm.com/parts/catalogue/howto/error.htm

Well, in that case it very much looks as if the adapter has gone to meet its forefathers. You could try opening the cover and reseating all the connections it has, but more likely you'll have to replace it unless it's onboard. If that's the case, you'll probably have to replace the motherboard, or disable the adapter and add a new adapter card.

Oh, if it is an adapter card, you can try putting it in another slot.

I guess that last bit should have gone here.

Yes, but I'm actually not too good with IBM products. For that matter, I've only seen IBM PCs a couple of times in my life. Spend my life with clones.
