Hello Experts,

I have a Dell PowerConnect 5012 that I bought off eBay that is in a continuous boot loop. After connecting the RS-232 port to a COM Port on a PC I was able to remove the password but once it restarted it just goes into a boot loop. Any ideas on how to get to the main menu?

Thanks for any help,

Power Supply? Didn't think of that. You've seen this before?
