2900xl problem

I have 2 2900xl series switches and currently the both have been spitting errors at me and i just wanted to conferm my suspitions. the errors that i am getting are simaler to this

"C2900XL POST FAILURE: front-end post: FastEthernet0/9:

C2900XL POST FAILURE: looped-back packet not received "

this comes up on multiple ports, if i am not mistaken this means the port is 100% dead?

Hi ,

C2900XL POST FAILURE: front-end post: FastEthernet0/9:

C2900XL POST FAILURE: looped-back packet not received "

I would say that the port is probably bad. Do you see any "post failures" during the bootup?

**** Better go for RMA.

Thanks,
